- Wedding: January 2012
It was awful when I was getting ready for the wedding. I was running super late, and I couldn’t get to my hair appointment, and three of my bridesmaids were missing. One of the BMs offered to do my hair, but she’s not really a hair person, so she had no clue what she was doing (and knew it, too). I was sitting in just my underwear, and no one had any idea where the other BMs were, and I couldn’t do anything about it. I poked my head out the door and begged my dad to go looking for them, but he said I just needed to relax. We got into a screaming match because he was refusing to help and EVERYTHING was going wrong, and I finally flipped him the bird, and he said he was leaving. Then someone came looking for all the tuxedos, and I hadn’t picked them up. There were only thirty minutes left before the wedding began, and my hair had barely been started, my makeup hadn’t been started at all, and I couldn’t even get into my dress because I needed the help of all my BMs (and they were still missing). Oh, and no one had heard from my groom. I sat down and started sobbing.
And then woke up, my heart racing in my chest, my body full of adrenaline, and lots of fury rushing through me. It was 5:45 this morning. I tried to go back to sleep, but I couldn’t. I was too on edge at that point.
WTF? I’m nine months post-wedding! Why am I still getting wedding nightmares???
My theory is just that Mr. Sandman was feeling particularly sadistic last night. Darling Husband apparently had a school nightmare, and that’s an even further reach into the past.
Any of you other ladies still having wedding nightmares this far past the big day?
