Anyone else? I have been having intense nightmares that are silly when I talk about them during the day but are devastating when they’re happening/when I first wake up.
It’s never anything bad about my FI, and I’m not unsure about our relationship or experiencing cold feet in the slightest. It’s just everything else! Nightmares about forgetting my dress the day of, logistics falling through with the marriage license so we can’t get married and for some reason only find out the day of, my photographer refusing to do our first look because I don’t look pretty enough and she thinks FI “won’t be very impressed” etc etc.
Last night, they were so bad that this morning I lurched out of bed and locked myself in the bathroom taking deep breaths on the floor until I could stop shaking. My fiance thinks it’s silly, which it is, but I guess I’m looking for some better advice than to “stop stressing out.”
Anyone else experience this?
ETA: Okay, one of them was pretty funny. We’re getting married on my parents’ pond, and one night I had a nightmare that my dad stocked the pond with alligators as a practical joke. They ate half the guests.

@bluestockingbride: Haha you are normal believe it or not. These dreams happen. And some weird stuff may come true, but you really do have to not stress, especially about the little stuff. I had dreams about forgetting my dress or veil. I was so wrapped up in everything (making sure I had those two pieces) that I forgot panties the day of and had to make a midnight run to Walmart to get some, lol.
You will be just fine. I suggest taking a few steps back from the wedding and making sure to get some “me time” in before bed like reading, watching tv, or going for a walk. 🙂

I had another bad nightmare last night ..I went to pick up my dress and the alterations were done wrong my dress was cut too short and they forgot to line the inside.i got to the reception hall and the tables were not set up..the flowers were totally wrong not the ones i ordered..then i asked the owner of the reception hall if i can speak to the guy in charge of the flowers and he told me the guy was fired along time ago. I also saw my dad in my dreams (my dad passed away last year) I was telling him how everything went wrong and thats all i can remember from it .
It felt so real that ive been feeling down and agitated all day 🙁 2 months left and i cant handle the stress anymore 🙁

@princesspink: I know how you feel about it leaving you upset all day! I like the suggestion of doing something that has nothing to do with the wedding before bed. I find myself working on wedding stuff late into the evening, and it’s probably a factor. I know you can do it! Best of luck!
