My stress sometimes comes out in my dreams. Probably 4-6 times a year I have the somewhat common recurring dream about my teeth falling out.
When I’m preparing to teach a new class, I have dreams that students yell at me, won’t listen, throw things, and I end up losing it and cursing them all out.
Well, I’ve officially had my first wedding disaster dream:
I was about to go in to the ceremony (though my dad wasn’t there) and I realized that I had FORGOTTEN. To do. Everything. No one knew where to sit, what music to play, what time the wedding was. I had forgotten to choose a bridesmaid dress! Somehow, they all ended up in this crazy shiny pink tutu dress with a black patent-leather belt around it.
Oh, and my FI refused to wear a shirt because he wanted to show off the new tattoo he got across his back (in real life, he has zero tattoos and no plans on getting any).
I don’t think this is what is meant by “The wedding of your dreams” …
If I were a psychologist, I would say that I have issues about being in control… But I’m not! So I’ll just ask:
Any other wedding nightmares out there?? Or is it just me?…

Hahaha! That’s funny about his back tattoo.
Dreams let you confront all your fears (not that all those things would happen but maybe just forgetting to DO something) and deal with them. I think your mind prepares you for the absolute worst – so just think, there’s NO WAY anything could go as wrong as it does in your dreams. 🙂

I had a dream where I arrived at the reception room, and it was a gray 10 x 10 room with no furniture at all. I got upset that our crowd wouldn’t fit or be able to sit or dance, and my mom and aunt started berating me that I should be grateful for this room.

LOL I totally have the teeth dream too and it is SO DISTURBING! I’m glad I’m not the only one out there 🙂 haha!
I had one not too long ago that I never got my dress altered so the morning of the wedding we used clothespins, tape, and safety pins to secure the back of my dress so it fit tight enough. I was stressed in the dream. I dreamt when I got to the end of the aisle my fiance and I were overcome with emotion and crying… until he gave me a hug and he stopped and pulled back and gave me a look that said “what is going on back there?!” It made me laugh so hard I woke myself up!

Did you know that dreaming about your teeth falling out symbolizes a fear of losing money? I read that in a dream dictionary once! :]
I had a nightmare last night that there was a hurricane/tidal wave and it washed over my entire ceremony site, about ten minutes before the wedding was supposed to start. Oh–and I forgot to go to my hair appointment in the dream, so my hair was totally undone and everyone was waiting for me to start on time.
It’s getting bad. I need me some ambien.
