The "Wow it's getting close" comment...

Today was the first day someone said to me "Wow! December 5th is getting so close". Everyother day prior to today everyone has always responded by saying "oh you still have plenty of time" after I've told them the date...


I just thought it was weird...1) that I noticed it, and 2) that today of all days is when I've crossed the "plenty of time" to "coming up soon" line...maybe it's because we're at the tail end of Sept, and a lot of times Oct and Nov get skipped in people's heads.


Anyway, now that people are starting to realize the December is in fact right around the corner it's becoming 10x more real to me too...kinda like an "ah ha" moment.


Anyone else starting to feel that way? What was your "ah ha" moment?

I did! At work, we have to turn in our "day-off" requests about one month before the new schedule comes out. So I'm already thinking of November and it's just the tail end of September! I know there are some weeks left (my wedding date is Dec 19) but I'm thinking: after Halloween, it's downhill to thanksgiving and BAM! ----> december!


I know what you mean, luckysbride.

totally there with you both! i'm very happy to be moving out of the "plenty of time" phase though - it constantly amazes me how people ALWAYS seem to say that to brides, no matter what the actual timeline is!


like don't tell me we have plenty of time to pick out wedding rings, when you've just told me that i would need to place my order by Oct 12th to be on the safe side!!! lol, do these people have a different type of calendar than i do?!?!

Glad you both are feeling it too!


I think when you're planning a wedding your constantly looking at a timeline and check lists and all the things you have to do at 9, 8, 7, etc months out, so to the bride (at least for me) I've always felt the "wow it's going to be here before I know it" feeling. It actually kinda erked me that people would say "you have plenty of time...don't worry about that yet" when my checklist clearly told me it had to be done :)....but now people are having the same feeling as me and it definitly made me realize that if everyone else is thinking the same thing it MUST be true...kwim?

I was just sitting here making a list and just thought to myself wow! Its getting really close and there is still a ton to be done. Initially I was hating my FI's desire to be involved, but now I'm loving the extra set of hands.

Lately that is all anyone has been saying. I was supposed to mail out my Invites last Friday but I haven't even started addressing them yet - I think I will have to put it off 1 week since I'm super swamped at work for month-end billing.


I feel like I need to get started on my DIY stuff, but I don't have any of the music info & whatnot to make programs and I haven't had my food tasting to make sure that it is what I want so I can't do my menus either. Still haven't talked to the DJ about music selections and whatnot. I feel like time is getting away from me but I'm probably just over-reacting...

My wedding is in 30 days and I'm freaking out! lol I feel like there's so much to get done, even though I know it will all come together. People keep saying, "It's coming up so soon!" and I'm like, "Yeah, you don't have to tell me that!".
