It’s 6 months and 2 weeks until my wedding, and last night, after a late night at work that resulted in me getting home at 3:30am, I had my first wedding disaster dream, where I think we were 2 hours behind schedule and my dress seemed to be both unfinished and horribly torn. Just great. 😛
I frequently dream that I miss out on something important and/or screw it up, usually because I overslept, but this is by by far the furthest out that it’s happened. When did your wedding disaster dreams begin? How frequent were/are they and how bad? If you’re already married, how was your wedding?

@ladyamalthea: I had one nightmare already and we are just in the first planning stages yet. I dreamed that my fiance and I were standing in front of the altar and he had forgottten the rings. He just said something along the lines “Oh well, I will buy them right now.” and then sprinted away… Yikkkeess….

@ladyamalthea: Aren’t they just the worst? I started having them probably as soon as we had a venue. It’s not super frequent yet, and we’re in double digit days countdown. Maybe once every few weeks, that I can remember. Last night, for a change of pace, I had a terrorist attack nightmare (I have a couple death/world ending recurring dreams and this is one of them). Super fun, couldn’t fall asleep for an hour after that woke me up.

@ladyamalthea: I have had 3 already..we are about 8 months out from our wedding. I had my first one probably abouta month and a half ago. They change every time but are always to do with me not having things done. My most recent one was that I was about to walk down the aisle when I realized I had booked all of our vendors, but never was in touch with them/coordinated them at all so nothing was going to happen. That included me having a realization that I never even went to decorate the day before! AH! I woke up freaking out a little! Just know that you aren’t alone 🙂

If I do any wedding planning right before bed, I will have a wedding dream. It seems to just happen. And for some reason, they never go well.
Mine started pretty early into the process.

@ladyamalthea: I had one about a month ago. My date is the weekend after yours!
My dream consisted of my bridesmaids getting stuck in NYC and not making it (none of them live there) – me not being ready when every single person I ever knew showed up on millions of schools buses – and no hair/makeup people around…and the real kicker.. I was marrying a WOMAN! FI was there too and was upset I was marrying her, but I told him I didn’t want to hurt her feelings! LOL
I always have a TON of stress dreams. I have a lot where I am getting murdered/stabbed/shot (FI says I have issues, lol) or where I need to dial 911 but I cant – or I can’t escape from someone who’s after me. I’m sure they will get worse closer to the wedding!

@Misswhowedding: I’m the same way. One night before bed I was talking with my FI about what he wants to wear for the wedding, then I dreamt he showed up in jeans and a flannel shirt and then decided that because he wasn’t dressed properly he just wasn’t going to marry me :O
The other dreams I’ve had all relate to a specific project/element I was planning in the evening. Last week I got a call that my dress came in and I was talking to my mom in the evening and told her. That night I dreamt that the completely wrong dress came in and it looked horrible on me but there wasn’t time to order another so I had to wear that one.

I kept dreaming that I started my period as I was walking down the aisle! 🙂
I also kept dreaming of tornadoes at the wedding. Yikes!

I’ve had a couple already- I have six months to go.
Two of them involved my dress being too short, and my dress was also blue in one of them (nothing wrong with blue dresses, it’s just that mine isn’t!). In one of them the guests saw me before the ceremony and in another, we skipped all the preparations like hair and makeup and photos.
I’m sure I’ll have many more- I remember a lot of my dreams!

I started having them shortly after the proposal when we secured our venue and started booking things. Most of mine consist of forgetting to do things or suddenly its the wedding and no one knows. In one my makeup artist went MIA and I Googled her and found out she moved to Japan…. there is no accounting for these scenarios. 🙂

@agrinste1: My latest one was that the bridesmaid dresses that came in where not the ones we ordered and they had discontinued the style I had ordered. This happened the night before we were planning to go to the bridal shop and make sure we had the right dresses. Of course this is what would happen! 🙂

I had one last night where the whole thing was over before I was ready, like the band started packing up and I hadn’t danced once, and everyone missed a huge chunk of the reception because of some slideshow my mother was showing elsewhere.
I was just very sad after the wedding in the dream, and was still sad when I woke up! WTF.

Wow, great to hear I’m not alone lol!
@weatherbug: LMAO at your reasoning for marrying a woman when you’re in love with a man!
@CaroBee: Lol, I’m pretty sure your mom won’t miss the reception to show some slides somewhere else!

@ladyamalthea: My wedding isn’t until August 2015… and I’ve already had nightmares!! Like I’m running hours late, I wear an ugly dress, etc. It’s brutal!
