Bees I’m so tired of these wedding nightmares! From bad timing, incorrect flowers, random music when I walk down the aisle to empty seats I have seriously dreamt about it all.
Last night my dream consisted of me ticked off at my mother for booking my reception in some random restaurant venue that was beyond ugly. I woke up with a sheer panic and anxiety and was truely upset. Even my Fiance noticed. Where the heck did that come from?
I have 20 or so days to go and these dreams just keep getting worse and worse. The funny thing is everything is absolutely perfect and stressfree. I have an awesome team of people all in line to make my dream day come true, so why am I fretting???
Bees, please tell me I am not the only one losing my mind! Anyone else having these bridal nightmares?

Haha, I’m with you! I’m having them weekly now. My most frequent one is that it is my wedding day and I only have everything that I have done now (basically nothing). My newest one is that my Maid/Matron of Honor insists on cutting my hair chin-length if she is to style it. She is getting married 2 weeks before me so it’s always fun to compare wedding nightmares in the mornings.

@Treejewel19: I had nightmares very often leading up to the wedding. I had a lot of problems sleeping, and within a month of my wedding, had to take ‘Simply Sleep’ and/or SleepyTime tea to get to bed. My dreams revolved around not having my hair and makeup booked for my wedding. Also about my Mother-In-Law trying to ‘surprise’ us with horrible wedding stuff.
As soon as we left on our honeymoon it all went away and I’ve been sleeping well for the past month now 🙂

I hear ya. My worst one involved basically forgetting to book everything, then realizing it on the morning of the wedding. My mom and aunt told me not to worry, that they’d found some great decor – navy blue fleece blankets for tablecloths, and plastic grapes for centerpieces. 🙂
Funny you mention that everything is perfectly lined up…. I think this happens to many of us. Not sure if it’s happened to you, but when I used to date assholes, I’d dream that they were the sweetest guys ever. With the nice guys, I’d dream that they were huge jerks… I think our dreaming brains just like to mess with us!

Thank you WB for eating my post again! UGH
I’m not there yet with the weekly nightmares but they’ve started. I just plain can’t sleep when I’m excited/nervous/anxious. When I had my first deal for my job I pretty much didn’t sleep for 3 days straight because I was so anxious.
I am just crossing my fingers to fall asleep and not have any sort of vivid dreams for the next 4 months ahaha!

I started having them right after we got engaged and started planning! You’re not crazy (either that, or we both are). 🙂

@Stammie16: Glad to hear they do stop. Can’t wait for the honeymoon!
Thanks bees, glad to know I’m not the only anxiety ridden bride. Guess we will have to keep each other company late at night. 🙂

Ughh! I know this will happen to me. Try reading or watching something on TV NWR right before you go to sleep. Sometimes, I dream about what I was watching on TV. It would be awesome if you’d realize that you’re dreaming and snap yourself out of it, but I can’t do it : (
