My wedding isn’t until 1/3/15, but the “nightmares” have started.
I dreamed last week that I was stuffing invitations actually in my dress at the wedding because I had forgotten to send them out and just told everyone to take one and pass them down.
Then last night I dreamed it was the day of and I had forgotten to order invitations or my cake and then couldn’t find my shoes or my slip.
What wedding “nightmares” have y’all had?

I had one last week where it turned out our tent wasn’t going to be big enough, so we had to get a second tent to put the band and the dancefloor.
I am stressing IRL about our tent size though.

@rhiannonzdanowicz: Oh man, I don’t miss those! Mine started about three months out from the wedding and I too had the “forgot to send invitations” dream. I had dreams that my DH was late and that his family forgot the right day. Dreams that I had no decor, no cake, no flowers……our brains are so weird sometimes.

I totally have had the forgetting invitations dream – it was a recurring one in fact. I’ve also dreamed that the church scheduled a yard sale on wedding day, minister forgot to show up, and fiance showed up without his suit.
@turtle9748: I’ve had the same stress about the tent. what size do you have/how many guests? I recently got a wedding day coordinator (best decision ever) who told me that my tent size was plenty big, could even go down a size if it wasn’t for the band.

@lolalulu_24: We planned for 100 people for a 40×60 tent, including dance floor, small 8×16 stage. My fear is that that we will end up with closer to 120-30 people. If the weather is nice, no problem, but if it’s rainy and everything has to be under the tent, I worry it’ll be so crowded and uncomfortable.

@rhiannonzdanowicz: Haha, I’ve posted mine before but it still totally cracks me up so here it is again (in lots of detail):
I’m sitting in the chairs at the ceremony, in my dress. Well not actually MY dress because I was sitting much too comfortably, so, A dress. The chairs are all turned facing the aisle and there are another batch of chairs where the altar should have been that were facing OUT – away from the ceremony which was apparently taking place in the aisle. I don’t recognize a single person in the chairs, OR the two men talking. I guess from there, when I was supposed to walk down the aisle, I just stood up and walked around to the start of the chairs. People are walking all around and getting up and down from chairs so they finally decide to have an “intermission” of sorts. Everyone goes on about their merry way.
I get to a mirror and see my hair and have a “holy f’ing sh*t” moment. I don’t know WHAT happened but I basically had two huge bouffant type things with braids up the front that make me look like I had antlers. But hey, my cute orchid hair pins from Etsy were there so that’s a plus. Anyways, I find my mom and freak out. “Why didn’t you tell me my hair looks like antlers?”! She replies “you wanted that. We did it the original way and you said it wasn’t done up enough.” Um, OK. So I go on a mission to find my mom’s old friend from high school (who is actually invited to the wedding) because she does hair for a living and I’m positive she can fix this. Can’t find her.
For some reason, I think she’s going to be in the bridal suite which at my venue is it’s own small house. I have to climb in a window – not sure why. Only to find that the younger crowd and some children I absolutely do NOT recognize are having a house party in there and eating all the food I had for the bridal party earlier. So I kick everyone out yelling that it’s in my contract that only the bridal party are allowed in there (that’s true) so everyone needs to leave. I threaten a child who starts throwing a temper tantrum about leaving that he can either stand up and leave like a big boy, or I’m dragging him out. (yikes) He gets up but asks me to carry him. Ok fine, I do.
When I get outside, still looking for the friend/hairstylist, I discover that the majority of my guests are now on inner tubes floating a LAZY RIVER.
Then I wake up. But through all of this, Mr. S is nowhere to be found and for some reason, in my dream, I don’t think that’s at all odd….

In my dreams the wedding invite said “Rhiannon & Chris” and everyone was like “Who’s Chris” and I said it’s what we call Jody for short.
*Jody is my fiance and I haven’t a clue who Chris is*

I dreamt I was an hour and a half late for the ceremony. I saw the time and realized I hadn’t gotten started on my hair or makeup and ended up reeeeeally late, which is weird because I’m a nut about being punctual.

I had a crazy, recurring nightmare involving an extremely 80’s wedding gone awry, lol. I described it in detail in an older thread, but know that you’re not alone!

@rhiannonzdanowicz: I was actually going to post a thread about this too! Lol, had quite a few so far, but had one just the other night that, suddenly my 1/10/2015 wedding was like tomorrow, and I didn’t have a dj, caterer or dress, and I was freaking out!!!

@rhiannonzdanowicz: I’ve had a few of them already. The most recent one wasn’t really a nightmare per say, just weird. Our reception was already over, and I was sitting at a table in “our venue” except it really wasn’t our venue – it looked sort of like my elementary school cafeteria lol – and there were only like 20 people there. Everyone was clearing out and I was sitting down at a table while people cleaned up around me and I was bummed out because I felt disappointed in the small turnout.

My worst one so far was last night. We moved the reception from our venue to my parents front yard (they live on a busy street) and we were so late setting it up that out 6:00 dinner wasn’t ready until 8:30 and I realized most of the decorations were at the wrong place. By the time dinner was served pretty much EVERYONE had left and people were calling me to tell me they were disappointed. I ended up crying and wondering why my DOC didn’t help before realizing that I had never told her we moved the reception. 🙁
