So we have been home from the honeymoon for about 10 days now. And almost every night I have had some kind of bad dream. Sometimes it’s not always about the wedding, I had one where we were lost and stayed with a serial killer family, who I had to kill with my samurai swords.
But several have been about me marrying the wrong guy! I dreamt I was vacationing in Mexico and married a Mexican man, even though I was engaged to my husband, and he was really upset and I kept telling him we hadn’t consumated we could just get it annulled! And the worst was probably last night where I dreamt I married my ex-bf, and we honeymooned seperately and I kept saying, “I married the wrong man, I married the wrong man!” Thank god I wasn’t talking in my sleep and my husband didn’t hear me!
Has anyone dealt with this before? Is it going to stop? I imagine it’s built up stress from the wedding, but so weird that it’s happening after the honeymoon. I didn’t have any nightmares during the honeymoon…. Ugh… I just wish I could get a decent nights sleep!

My wedding’s not until August, but right after we got engaged I had some dreams like yours. Mine stopped. I think maybe it just takes a while to get used to the idea of permanence, even though you knew it was permanent before maybe part of you just hasn’t acknowledged it yet. They’ll stop though. Don’t worry. 🙂

I imagine it’s from stress. I had some really bad dreams (though not usually about weddings…some about exes) in the month or two after the wedding. Generally I just cozy up to my honey when I wake up.
I hope it doesn’t last for you!

I had a bunch of really weird ones after the honeymoon – there was this one where we were having 4 identical weddings (2 on saturday and 2 on sunday) to make things “more convenient” for the guests, and I was in a total panic because I forgot to have my “something blue” at one of the weddings. I think that becaue the wedding is a big life event, you’re in charge of it, and you’re kind of the star of the show, it’s the perfect setting for stress-dreams… it doesn’t say anything about your wedding, or about marrying the wrong guy!
