The minute you say “yes,” a countdown to your wedding day begins. While there's a ton to be done — between cake tasting, dress shopping, food planning, and establishing the final guest list — you can’t wait to get to the part where you can slip into your dancing shoes and walk down the aisle to say, "I do." If you're a bride who's getting ready to tie the knot super soon and still have a few engagement pics you never posted, here are some wedding countdown quotes to let everyone know how excited you are for the big day.

Weddings are such an exciting time. Every event feels like a mini celebration in anticipation of the big day. By now, you’re getting antsy and it’s because you can’t wait to see your dream wedding become a reality. Sometimes, when you’re extra excited about something, it can make the days leading up to it feel longer than ever. To help pass the time in a fun way, start counting down the days on Instagram with your favorite pictures together. You’ll need unique wedding countdown captions for each day you have left, though. So, to help make the posting even easier, here are 30 marriage countdown captions that perfectly convey all the excitement and love you have inside.
