- Wedding: October 2014
Let me preface this by saying that we haven’t even locked down a date or a venue yet, but already this wedding has been stressing me out. I feel like I’m pulled in a million different directions: what FI and I want is vastly different from what my parents want, but they’re footing a lot of the bill, so pretty much what they say goes.
I had my first wedding nightmare last night. Only a small handful of guests came of the probably 100 that RSVP’d and they were all my family–NONE of my friends came, except for one, a guy I haven’t talked to in a while so I was really surprised that of all the friends that could have showed up, it was him and his girlfriend. We were waiting and waiting for FI’s family to show up at the reception (when the dream started, the ceremony had apparently already taken place) and then he got a text that his mom and sister couldn’t make it. He doesn’t have a dad so that was really all he had besides friends, and his friends didn’t show either! He was incredibly depressed. Then, since hardly ANYONE showed up, the reception hall asked us to move our party from one of the big beautiful decorated rooms to the FRONT LOBBY to make room for another party that would “better utilize the space”! Then my mom whipped out individual cheesecakes for everyone, and everyone quickly grabbed theirs and left!
This is obviously just a product of wedding anxiety, but geez! We woke up this morning and I said to FI, “I dreamt about our wedding last night.” He got this dreamy, still-sleepy grin on his face and said, “Was it amazing?” I was like, “NO! Nobody came! It was a disaster!” Haha. Anyone else have any crazy wedding nightmares? I imagine I’ll have more of these the closer we get to D-day!
