With less than six weeks to our August 14th wedding, I’ve started to have wedding nightmares on a regular basis. A couple that I remember:
1. The wedding day comes, and I’m totally unprepared. I spend all day getting ready and trying to get everything together. By the time I’m done and I look at a clock, it’s 7:30pm, and our 2pm wedding is way past due. I walk out to the ceremony area, and everyone is gone.
2. For whatever reason, my wedding dress has turned in to a very extravagant pink tutu, and I’m frantically trying to get last minute alterations done. I have them ready, and when I go to change, I realize I’ve forgotten the dress.
I’m sure I’m not the only one experiencing these. 🙂 What have your wedding dreams/nightmares been?? Are they at all legitimate concerns?

That something actually stopped me from walking down the aisle.
and that the work I put into the reception actually goes ahead and comes together and doesnt scream DIY rather but fun and warming and inviting.
Thats a living nightmare and doesnt happen when im sleeping but I think about it all the time!

I was having nightmares that I would get to my wedding and my dress doesn’t fit. I was able to “cure” this by going to my dress shop and trying my dress on! Needless to say, it FITS 🙂 It’s a little loose, but in my opinion it’s better to be loose than too tight!! Hope this helps

I keep having this dream that we’re standing at the altar but no one is paying attention to us. Everyone is talking over us and that there are other couples in line waiting to get married and they’re rushing us. In one dream, one second we’re standing at the altar and then next it looks like we’re in the social security office with tons of people complaining about having to wait.
I had my first dress dream where for some reason I wore my wedding dress to the beach and ruined it so I had to changed into this pink, chiffon nightmare.

OMG I have been having ridiculous nightmares lately about the wedding haha! THe other nigth I had a dream that I was as calm as can be, it was the wedding day and everyone around me kept yelling at me to get moving and get ready, but I ignored them. I was doing yoga, relaxation breathing etc and telling them to leave me alone. Then, all of a sudden I realized that it was 8pm, and that the ceremony was supposed to be at 2pm… I started freaking out on everyone for not telling me whatt time it was, and then FI and I were decising whether everyone would be at the church waiting for us, or if we should go ahead with the reception and just get married at the courthouse on the Monday after… it was sooo weird.

My dreams/nightmares have been pretty consistant and always are somewhere along the lines of the wrong ceremony music being played, everything not being finished by the time the day comes along, missing people/details, being late, rushing to get everything done. It’s horrible! I seriously woke my myself up out of one the other night because it was THAT bad. You know those “scary” nightmares where you just want to wake yourself up and push it out of your brain. That kind of nightmare. Awful

This makes me feel much better! I’ve had one intense nightmare so far where after we get married we show up to the reception venue and no one is there because everyone’s been invited to another reception venue by my in-laws. We are forced to have the reception on a boat but there is no food or drink, so nobody has any fun! wah wah. Too obvious to decipher i think, ha.

I had a WPN (wedding planning nightmare) the other night. Everything that went wrong was details I haven’t taken care of yet. You better bet it encouraged me to get on the ball.

Latest bad dream:
Everyone was at the ceremony and then I forgot I didnt do the flowers so my FMIL and I go to put them together while the guests are waiting and complaining and then I am trying to wrap up a woman in white pantsuil into the center of my bouquet but she keeps complaining that I am doing it wrong! Woke up so horrified I couldnt go back to bed and instead went and researched how to make a bouquet again online lol

I had a dream that we got in a big fight and i was sitting in the bridal suite in my dress by myself trying to decide if i should walk down the aisle, tell the guests, or just leave! OMG it was awful!!
I think what caused it was because my FI and I had gotten in a fight that evening and the same issue was what caused the fight in my dream.
I haven’t had a lot of stress about the wedding yet but as it gets closer i am starting to get nervous about things like the bridal party showing up in time for pictures, the florists not forgetting anything, or the photographer being late :-0 Im just hoping this anxiety stays minimal and no bad dreams come of it either!

I walked down the aisle to see that I was late for my own wedding or that nobody had shown up (wasn’t really sure). What a depressing dream!

I just woke up from one of these, the first one I’ve had- and I’m ten months away from the wedding! In it, we got to our church and I realized that I didn’t have a garter or shoes, the photographer was not there, and one of my bridesmaids didn’t have a dress! So she and I went shopping in a Macy’s that just happened to be below the church, and she was suggesting terrible dresses. I came upstairs to the church to call my parents (who weren’t there) and saw a guy I went on one date with several years ago, who told me to make sure I got shoes I could dance in. Then I sat down where the choir sits in the church and felt such an overwhelming sense of terror and sickness. I woke up with my fists clenched and my heart racing! I’m not a nervous person and can’t imagine I’ll be anxious the day of the wedding, but this was awful!!!
