I’m still 6 months out, but I’ve been having wedding nightmares every now and then. Lately, I’ve been dreaming that it’s the day of and I forgot to make a hair appointment, so I have to do it myself (and it comes out looking half-assed). I’ve had this dream more than once. Maybe my subconscious is telling me I should book a hair salon now? LOL
What goes wrong in your wedding anxiety dreams?

I hear you on this! In mine, I don’t have things ready in time. Guests are showing up and there are lots of things that aren’t ready. It’s almost always a variation on that theme. I had a dream the other day about changing my name and said in the dream “Well, I still have a year to adjust to the idea” and then I woke up and was like “Ahh! 2 months!!”I think I may have gotten too comfortable with this 18 month engagement … 😉
I am very excited for the big day but do feel nervous about getting everything to come together as I hope it will (details/decor/timing wise).

Oh you’re totally not alone. Mine usually center on not doing something that I really wanted to; not getting to send out invites, not getting a shower, not wearing a dress I love, that kind of thing.
I had one dream where I didn’t have the BM’s pashminas and I started to wig out. I woke up and ordered them immediately! LOL!

I had a dream this weekend in which it snowed on our wedding day! My hair got all wilty and everything had to be moved inside. The odds of this actually happening are about a million to one. Snow in August, ha!

My nitemare are really weird I have no idea what goes on in my head at night. Other than the my dress came out horribly, the church ceremony turning into a old log cabin, my wedding getting canceled because my priest didn’t feel like doing the ceremony, the most crazy one thus far was the crew from Star Trek the next generation attendeding my wedding (Having Worf reciting some poetry or something in klingon was weird).

I have a couple a week, but the one that stands out the most is the whole wedding goes by in a blur and at 2AM I realize it’s over but I don’t remember any of it. All that planning and I missed it.

In my wedding anxiety dreams
1. My bouquet is WAY too large
2. Only my creepy relative show up and fiances family thinks we are totally gross.
3. I look generally stupid and over made up.

I have them almost every night but last night’s was…
I took my dress to a really “big deal” designer to make it a little bit more fashionable and I got it back the day before the wedding and he had dyed it navy with white polka dots. It matched my wedding colors but I was TOTALLY ticked off and had no time to fix it so I had to find another dress before the wedding.

I had my first big wedding anxiety dream a few nights ago… basically, I dreamed that the wedding was happening with only the things that I had actually completed being done… My dress hadn’t been altered so I was running around trying to get someone to pin it and ended up running into my FI, we had no flowers, just the centerpiece containers, no officiant and I was running around trying to get people to tell me that they were joking and that it wasn’t really June 19th. Not a fun dream. I hope they don’t continue, because I have been pretty chill about wedding stuff during my waking hours… I don’t want all that stress to keep coming up at night.

I keep having dreams that I am forgetting something significant. I can’t for the life of me figure out what it is, because I always get freaked out and wake up. I hate anxiety!

I have these dreams too! I usually have a dream where I’m in the wrong place, and I know the wedding is going on with out me and I’m late.
One dream I had I was on some strange beach with these giant mussels (the shell fish) sticking up out of the mud, and my dress didn’t fit right and I wasn’t wearing a bra, and my uncle tried to tell me which way to go… very weird.
