I just got back proofs of our wedding invitations and finally seeing it on paper gave me a "moment"! We are really getting married and I can't wait!
What was the moment for you when it all started to feel real? :)

    So far my 'this is real' moment was the catering tasting. I'm sure once our invitations are finished it will be a surreal feeling. I can't wait.

    Registering and buying wedding bands made me feel like an actual adult getting married. 

    I'm addressing invitations today and they're going out next week - that will be weird feeling also.

  • I'm getting married in 6 weeks and so far the only moment I've gotten is an email from the florist asking about delivery times.  

    We've been engaged for almost two years that I think my mind's just stuck in perputual fiancee mode.

    Awww, congrats! I still have not had a major "this is for real" moment since we are in the early stages of planning. But sometimes, for like a few seconds I forget that I'm engaged. And then I'm like, wait, I AM engaged! And then I feel like

    I had a "this is real" moment in the shower after we looked at our first venue (which ended up being the venue we picked). It was basically, "I am 99% sure I just stood in the room I'll be getting married in."

    That's been it so far.

  • sending our invites was the "woah! this is happening soon moment!"  The bridal shower was when I really started to get excited.

  • For me it's been several moments, I think the biggest like @musikalbunni said was dropping the invites in the mail.  Another moment was the rings, another moment was my first fitting...

    This was it for me! We really only had one choice of venue (it was super important to FI to get married at his grandpa's country club) so I totally teared up on our tour thinking "I'm going to get married here."

    Aww :D that's really sweet!

    The venue we picked is owned by an event group that owns a second, very similar venue about 30 minutes away. Same package, same food, same price, just a different look and feel, and both were available on our date. We couldn't decide between the two. I was leaning towards the smaller one we visited, but I kept thinking, "Maybe it's because it was the first one we went to?"

    So we decided to go back to the venues with our parents and get their feedback (went to the bigger venue first, too, to try to make sure it wasn't just a "first venue" thing). Our parents liked the big venue and were getting excited about it, but as soon as we walked into the smaller venue, it was just like ... yep, this is it. My mom took me aside and was like, "Oh honey, this is where you're getting married." And it was like, oh my god, she's right, this IS where we're getting married.

  • I got married in my hometown, which is out of province for me. I did most of my wedding planning online. It didn't feel real until me, and I didn't start to get excited until I went for my first dress fitting. I looked in the mirror and felt like a bride and thought "this is what I'll be wearing when I marry {DH}"

    I had the "Real" moment when we received the Save The Dates. Also, just this week I had a "whoa" moment because I'm now less than 4 months from the big day. Four months sounds a helluva lot closer than 6, 9, 12 or 18 months....!

  • I had a "real" moment the other day- when we (finally) sent our STDs. And TODAY.. when I saw that my ticker said we are exactly 6 months out!

    6 months might sounds like a lot of time, but I was taking classes last semester- so I was thinking, "meh- we have the venue, food, and booze done.. and the DJ, photog, dress, and FI's suit... the rest of this crap can wait until 6 months before the wedding."  So here we are at 6 months, time to get moving!

    I think when we sent the invites, we were like "no turning back now". 

    Then this week we went to sign up for our marriage license. It's really real now.

    Once we started getting the rsvp's back, was one of the more exciting moments for me.  These last few months have flown by.  I'm getting married one week from tomorrow and it seems crazy!!!!

    THIS. When I saw my ticker on here and it was in the 3 month range I sent a screenshot to my FI and was like "holy shit...the 3 month range is here!"

    I'm still over 7 months out but the most "real" moment for me so far was buying my wedding dress. It was the first time I felt like I was going to be a bride and that this was actually happening :)

  • My "this is real" moment was when I dropped the invites at the mailbox. I blurted something along the lines of "holy shit, this is happening!"
    Me too.  I was with my mom.  Afterwards, she was all "oh, we should have taken pictures...".  Instead, we went out to lunch to celebrate.

  • I think the moment it hit me was when we visited our venue for our tasting and they were setting up for a wedding later in the day. I stood in front of the ceremony site and thought, "Holy crap I will be looking down this aisle in a few months". 

    We are now 5 weeks away and it's back to feeling like it's taking forever!

    For me, it was standing at the altar of the venue we eventually chose. Standing on the steps looking back at the rest of the room, my mind filled it with all our friends and family. NGL, I started crying.
