I’m just over ten weeks out from the wedding, and lately I’ve started occassionally having stressful wedding dreams. I don’t know if I would call them nightmares, because I don’t wake up panicked or anything, but it’s always just kind of like “man, that sucked.”
My recurring one centers around the theme that my wedding day has snuck up on me and I’ve somehow forgotten all the details I worked so hard on. In my last one, I didn’t have time to schedule hair and makeup, so I just looked like normal me (ponytail, chapstick) in a dress, and I get to the reception and all my DIY stuff is missing, meaning the whole place is pretty plain and empty. I think I had one where the DJ didn’t get my do not play list, and the music was crap and nobody wanted to dance. My FI even had a wedding dream the other night where we forgot to give my dad (our officiant) our vows before the wedding, and we sprung all these changes on him last minute and he wouldn’t marry us.
What wedding dreams have you had?

I have similar dreams. I will be married a year from today, and I would have nightmares that I suddenly had my date moved up to THIS Sept 22, and nothing was prepared.
I’ve also had nightmares that my mom buys me a $25 Salvation army dress, or a veil from Walmart.

@SadieBee: I’ve dreamt about not having my hair and makeup done for my wedding (ie I forgot to schedule the appointments). I feel like I’ve had other dreams but now I can’t remember…

@nutMeg13: haha. I’ve had that nightmare. I dream that today is my wedding day and no vendor shows up because I booked them for the same day the following year but I still managed to get married. Crazy! I can only imagine how wacky it’ll become when it gets closer.

i had so many i lost count. photographer not being around to take pics, BMs not wanting to stay for pics after the ceremony and basically taking off for the day, picking up my dress and its a tiny little white thing that was not remotly close to my real dress, i can go on and on!
the worst was the night before my wedding i dreamt that the ceremony took place indoors, it was like 5 mins long, with no wine box ceremony, no special poem readings, and no self-written vows. Basically we did nothing that i planned and i was so upset because we were married and i could never go back to that moment to make it more special. i woke up feeling this sense of dread and had to remind myself it was still the beginning of the day and things had a chance at going as planned!

Oh my goodness yes! Mine typically involve me forgetting one of my DIY projects too and we get stuck with no centerpieces. I even had one a while back that my wedding day came and I forgot to mail out the invitations! I only had the wedding party show up and since I forgot I had to do hair and make-up myself. You are not alone 🙂

Funny thing is, I haven’t had any yet, I’m sure some will come closer to the wedding (offically into double digits!!) but both my MOH and another BM have had nightmares about my wedding, I just laughed.

I considered it to be a major victory/milestone when I had a wedding “nightmare” that was actually about the quality of wedding, not the marriage itself.

OMG! I had my first one three day ago. I thought I was the only one. Mine was so weird. I was having a beach wedding (which I am not) and a shark came out and bit someone but not like a shark bite more like the way a mosquito bites and people just kept waving the shark away like it was an annoying bug.

I’ve had a few. Mine are mostly about forgetting important details, like inviting people, or getting dressed and having hair and make up done. In one nightmare I had forgotten it was my wedding day and just turned up to the chapel in jeans and t shirt and hair not done, and there were only a handful of people there and I hardly knew any of them. Then the reception just didn’t happen and Mr. Roux and I just went home and watched tv. I woke up crying. Poor Mr. Roux had no idea what to do when he woke up at 5am with me hysterically crying!

I usually don’t have a lot of vivid dreams, and my wedding is still over a year off. Lately though, I’ve been having dreams about being dressed (or almost!) and one big detail isn’t done. In the first wedding dream, my hair wasn’t done and it was time to walk down the isle. Its such a silly dream, because my stylist has literally done my hair MY ENTIRE LIFE and is like my 2nd mom. Another dream, I didn’t have my makeup done…silly because I do my own makeup. I just think these dreams are annoying!!!

I have wedding dreams most nights. It usually centers around something I’ve just been working on or will work on the next day. Two nights before our cake tasting, I had a dream that we were at the reception and there was no cake. When I asked they said “Oh, there’s no cake because you haven’t tasted cakes yet.”

@SadieBee:LOL! We are 6 weeks out and i just started having the exact same dreams! Same deal in mine where I don’t have time to get my hair or makeup done and I’m late for the wedding. I dreamed last night that for some reason i was detained by the cops which made me late for the wedding…LOL

I’m about 5 to 6 weeks out and I’ve been having wedding nightmares since the 3 month mark hit. Everything from the dress not fitting suddenly to literally no one showing up. Usually my wedding nightmares center around whichever task I checked off the to-do list that day. I usually wake up thinking…”did I really get that done or was that just a dream?”. All my friends/family have told me that it’s pretty normal. Even the FI had a wedding nightmare. His involved zombies though lol.

I tend to have a lot of nightmares in general, ever since I was a little kid. I had nightmares early in our engagement about losing my ring or the diamond falling out. Then I started having wedding nightmares where it would be the day-of and I’d realize the invitations never went out or I didn’t have shoes. As I checked those things (invitations, shoes, etc.) off my list, the nightmares subsided for a few months. I hadone about a month ago where it was the day after the wedding and I couldn’t remember anything. I was just like “I can’t believe it’s over. It went so fast!”
Last night was the worst one I’ve had… I used to work as a prep/sous chef when I was in college and my uniform was black pants, black Crocs, long black apron. I haven’t had to wear this for years. So in my dream, I’m standing in a churchI don’t recognize, wearing my old chef uniform and there’s all these white plastic chairs set up. A guy I don’t recognize is playing some non-descript classical music on a piano. It suddenly dawns on me that I’m at my own wedding. I’m like “Where am I? Why is the wedding here and not outside? Why are the flowers blue? Why is that guy playing the piano? How will he know what to play– he doesn’t have our music!!” So they usher me to the back like “Come on, it’s time to walk down the aisle!” I start sobbing because I’m not in my dress. They tell me there’s no time to put my dress on. Then they ask me where the rings are and I don’t have them, they’re at home. I’m just standing there in my work outfit sobbing hysterically…. Then I woke up!
