- Wedding: August 2011
I know we’re all supposed to be blushing brides and that everything is sunshine and roses when we’re planning weddings (HA!) but I’ve been having some weird dreams lately and I just wanted to make sure I’m not the only one out there! I’m still over a year away from the wedding, but I have been having the strangest anxiety-inducing dreams – almost once a week!! I’ve been pacing the planning pretty slowly, and I’m not feeling stressed in my waking life. We have a good idea of who our major vendors will be (photographer, DJ, flowers, etc) and have already put a deposit on our hall, worked out a menu and our coordinator is the best around, and our families are all thrilled and counting down til the big bash – so why am I having nightmares?
I’ll give you an example: one night I dreamt that I was at my parents’ house and they decided to invite the whole family to the backyard to throw the wedding there. OK, I thought (in my dream) – but what about the photographer and all the great plans for the hall and getting my hair done? Don’t worry, my parents said (in dreamworld), we’re all here and ready to party! In dreamworld, I already had my gown, but my hair wasn’t long enough and I couldn’t find the curling iron, and I didn’t put makeup on that morning and it was kind of rainy… wtf?
Another night I dreamt that we were in a shopping mall and his family all showed up and decided to have the wedding there! In this dream, I didn’t even have a Gown, so I had to go to Express to find one, and ended up wearing a cheesy jumpsuit because they had no dresses. They all gathered around as we walked down the aisle in some weird chapel at the mall (??) and I had to toss my flowers because I needed a free hand to hold up the back of my bridal jumpsuit… !
This is not even counting the dreams I have where I look down at my ring and it’s turned to dirt, the stones have fallen out, I take the ring off and it breaks apart in my hands, or the stones are all glass and shatter in my hand…
So ladies, here it is: vent about your wedding nightmares! Maybe we’ll find a common thread in all our dreams and maybe even find some comfort in knowing we’re not alone!
