Are You Excited?!?

With less then five months until the wedding, almost everyone I speak to about the wedding inevitably asks, “Are you so excited for the wedding?”

Well, to be honest, not yet. I mean, there are moments where I just can’t wait for it to get here, but, for the most part, I’m too worried about finding those table number holders, finishing the design of our invites (or, truthfully, starting them), getting the jiggles on my body to tighten up, finding that second dress, worrying over the little details that most people won’t even notice, etc.

And, to top it all off, when I think of the wedding, my first, true thought is, “Holy crap, how am I going to walk down that LONG aisle in front of all of those people?” Followed by, “Holy crap, I hope I have time for a glass of champagne (or two) before I have to dance in front of all of those people!”

Don’t get me wrong, with all of the hard work that has gone into planning, I’m so excited to see how everything turns out. Most importantly, I’m so excited for the wedding to be over, for Mr. H and I to be man and wife, and to finally be our own little family, same last names at all.

I just hate to disappoint people when I answer, “Well, not really yet. I’m ready for it to be over.” They give me this look of horror, like, how dare I say something like that about my wedding? I’m just being honest.

But try me after my bridal portraits next week, when I’ve been made-up, worn the dress and veil, and carried a bouquet around. Then, just then, the excitement might really hit me.

Were you all excited from day one? Did it come and go as planning commenced?


Mrs. Hydrangea

    I’m waiting to give someone this response: “No. See, Dad traded me to my FI for six pigs, three goats, a cow and two oxen.”

    I expect it to hit me as I get in the car with my dad to drive to the church. I’m not one to ever be excited about something until I’m just about to step into it. Even then, sometimes I spend a whole event going, “Hm, okay, I should be feeling differently now, I think.” LOL I think we all experience “excitement” differently – some people are quieter and more reserved than others or more prone to stress or whatever. When people start asking me (my wedding is 6 1/2 mths away) I’ll probably just lie. lol

    I’m getting married in 2 weeks, and thought I was thrilled when I got engaged, after 8 1/2 months of planning I’m just stresses and sick of thinking about it. I’m not excited at all, and I wish so much that we had eloped to a tropical resort somewhere. I can’t stand the family whining about where to sit, asking my questions they could easily solve for themselves, and EVERYONE EVERYDAY asking me ‘aren’t you so excited!?’. Cuz I’m not. I’m glad to be married, but if I had a choice I would go back in time and skip the big wedding and get married alone on a beach. Sorry to be a downer-You’ll feel better after the wedding! The marriage is still exciting!

    This makes me feel SO much better! I’m so sick of the wedding being all I ever think or talk about! I’m not an interesting person anymore! My apartment is filled with purple stuff, and everyone is asking me stupid questions like where they should park for the rehearsal dinner and what they should wear! So sick of being an event planner- I just want to be a wife!
    On top of all this I’m scared that I will hate my hair, make up, and dress and all of the photos!
    Who came up with this anyway? I just want to marry my love and get drunk with some friends and family! Thank you all for making me feel better!
