- Wedding: August 2014
I had my second wedding nightmare/dream last night. The first is a distant memory, but I recall a lot of scrambling at the last minute. This one is fresh and horrific, so I’ll give you guys the low down. I hope you’ll share your nightmares as well.
For some reason we moved the ceremony to a different location and I never told the caterers. I was getting ready and had this moment where I realized the refreshments for our guest hadn’t arrived yet. That’s what triggered me going into a panic. Turns out the caterers were at the old location and had set everything up. I had my Mom and Dad jump in the car to help them bring everything to the new location.
While all of that was happening I realized the chairs, well the space in general, hadn’t been setup, and that everyone was just kind of sitting around like bumps on a log. So that was another panic to show my friends how to setup the space. And they did a terrible job. Chairs were mismatched and for some reason a banquet table got placed within the rows of chairs. Terrible.
Then I realized that I hadn’t seen the officiant the entire morning. Turns out the officiant was coming at 4:15 on the dot to begin the ceremony, but at this point we needed to get in touch to tell her we have to start late because nothing was ready.
And the most heart attack inducing part of the dream: when I realized I didn’t know where my dress was and that I hadn’t actually checked with my fiance about what he was wearing. I was livid about the dress. I searched high and low and borrowed someones car to head back to my house. It was left in my room on my door. Once I returned to the venue, my fiance proudly explained that he had a suit which had lime greens, blues, and purples.
Did I mention my wedding is 10 months away? No. Well, it is. I am going to be a shriveled prune if things like this are happening in my head already. Ekk! Share away ladies, and tell me I’m not along in this mess.
