this morning i woke up in a puddle of sweat! i am 5 months out from our wedding…which is on August 8th 2009! I had my first wedding day nightmare!! thats right folks…it was horrifying…In reality we are doing our own flowers…i am making bouqts for the girls out of gerber daisies and the day before the wedding…my mom and i are going to a cutting garden and will be making my bouqt…well, in the dream, this whole thing sort of just didn’t happen and we were waiting in the lobby of the hotel were the reception is being held waiting for the shuttle to take us to the location of the ceremony….all of a sudden i realize no one has a bouqt!! so, we all decide that it would be a good idea to take flowers out of the arrangements in the lobby of the hotel…this is the best thing we could come up with?!?!? i guess it is better then nothing!! so…i guess what i am wondering is if anyone is cracking from the pressure yet -or- am i the only one??

Its ok, I had my first wedding nightmare too last night. I dreamed we were walking around under a huge oak tree in the fall talking about taking pictures under it. There were piles of leaves we were trying to avoid falling into and all of a sudden a car pulls up and some lady is taking her groceries out of her car and asking why we were wandering around her front yard. We were telling her that we’d booked that spot for our wedding portraits when we realized that not only were we wearing jeans but we’d forgotten to tell the bridal party we were taking pictures…and then we realized the photographer wasn’t coming because we hadn’t booked one.
So…its fine, its all part of the madness!

You’re not the only one! I have wedding dreams all the time!
Recently, I had a dream that the ceremony was over, and as my FI and I were ABOUT to walk into the ceremony when I realized that I had completely forgotten to plan for our music. We had a DJ there, but I never gave him a list of songs to play as we entered the room, or for our first dance or any of our father/daughter mother/son dances…
Even though I was dreaming, I could FEEL the terror of making this mistake! And then I woke up! 🙂

Thankfully I have yet to experience a wedding nightmare. My nightmares are usually based off of movies I’ve recently seen so if I saw Bride Wars or something like that I may then have a wedding related nightmare

I had a dream that my bouquet was white peonies and yellow dahlias (it is supposed to be all white) and the bridesmaid bouquets had giant dead spiders all over them. In the dream, when I questioned the florist about the spiders he said "what? you said you wanted them to be outdoorsy." And all the tables were decorated with christmas decorations (like those cheesy little light up villages). It was awful.

OMG my first wedding nightmare was the WORST. I woke my FI up (much to his chagrin) and made him promise me that we would pick the readings that day! (I dreamt that noone had passed the readings onto the readers, or the songs to the musicans — what a mess!). I’m also starting to have the jittery less than 6 month feeling! Where did the time go!!??!?! Why don’t my DIY projects complete themselves?!?!
