@Hermoine:  I had a nightmare like that on my wedding night! I haven’t had any more since, but I woke up from it going “really? I thought I was done with these!”

I have regular nightmares of various types anyway, and wake up feeling that way too – confused, upset, depressed. Nightmares suck no matter what they’re about. 🙁 DH is super nice about it though, he doesn’t mind me waking him up when it’s especially bad and I need comfort.

OMG YES!!!  The same thing happened to me for about 2.5 months after the wedding.  The only thing that finally stopped the nightmares was getting our photos from the photographer.  Seeing that everything did in fact go perfectly calmed me down.

I think a small part of me was worried that something bad would still happen, like the photographer calling and saying there was some technical error and all our photos were lost.  And then all I’d have is the few AWFUL photos that my MIL sent me.  I mean, her photos were truly AWFUL!  It looked like I had a huge dark blotch on my cheeks, the lighting made my skin yellow.  I was like, OMG is that really what I looked like??!  I was completely freaked out.  But thank goodness, we got the photos and I did look gorgeous and everything is fine now.  LOL!

I’ve had a few. It’s not intense, but more like those dreams where you missed a class, only to remember mid-dream that you graduated years ago. I had one nightmare where the wedding had somehow happened on the wrong weekend, and I was going to be late and had nothing planned for the “real wedding”. I even woke up in a panic, only to realize that we were married on the 10th, and everything was wonderful.
