HUGS! I know exactly how you feel, I had a similar dream where I forgot to send out invitations and nobody came. πŸ™ I’ve been engaged since Nov 09 (wedding this October) and I have only had 1 bad dream. Try and take a break from planning, I did that and it helped a TON!

Oh man! What a horrible dream! I never had any quite like that, but I did have my share of bad dreams (but mine were in the last few months/weeks before the weddding). Hope you don’t have any more like that. πŸ™‚

I was TORTURED by wedding nightmares. I had at least five vivid ones that I can remember that were similar to yours. And you know what? My wedding day was flawless! So I made a new rule of life: the more wedding nightmares one has…the more amazing their day will be! πŸ™‚

I had a week of dreams like this during my busiest/most stressful planning time. I had married the wrong groom, had a Bridesmaid or Best Man cancel on me the day of due to allergies (which she doesn’t have), and had my bridal party make me wear a veil that was terrycloth. The whole time I was like “This isn’t how it’s supposed to be!”. Rest assured that these will pass. I haven’t had any since πŸ™‚

I agree with speulie, take a break from planning if you can.

That does sound terrible!!  If it makes you feel any better, I have HORRIBLE wedding nightmares all.the.time.  I always forget stuff in the dreams, things don’t go right, there are too many people, and I’ve even had a dream where no one recognized me at my own wedding–not even my mom!!

I hope they don’t become frequent for you.  Try to do something other than look at wedding blogs right before bed!  Maybe that’ll help clear your mind!

At least the bright side is after all the horrible wedding dreams you’re wedding will seem perfect. Maybe their you’re brain’s way of preparing you for the worst – that way even the most minor problem on your actual day seems like nothing. πŸ™‚

I had one last night where we didn’t have our rings (cause we’re wedding band shopping now) so first we tried to use twisty ties but that didn’t work so we used rings we already owned because we figured who would know the difference.

Then, as we’re standing in the back of the church I turned to my Fiance and said “Oh my gosh! We forgot to decorate the tables!” We ended up getting married anyway and there was a huge crowd and it was fine.

Plus Martha Stewart showed up with a GIGANTIC bottle of champagne.

Offbeat Bride did an awesome video advice response to this topic.


Basically, Ariel (the site’s founder) says that as long as you wind up married at the end of the day…. your wedding was a success. I like her thinking.

I’ve had a couple wedding nightmares as well. In one, my wedding was in the food court in the mall. Ick. No thanks.

Don’t worry lady – most of us have some wedding nightmares πŸ™‚

Lamster actually got the first one – that his groomsman got stuck in Japan and couldn’t make the wedding (he travels there for work).  A few weeks later, I had my nightmare – that everyone came a month early and forced me to have the wedding that day even though I kept telling them that they were a month too early. 

I promise that it’ll all be ok!

veganglam – be glad all the crap wedding stuff is in your dreams only πŸ™‚ Think of the funny things – like, why did your mind have you get married next to the hummus? Maybe you need to hit the grocery store? heehee

Years before I met my fiance, I had a dream that I had a Care Bears themed wedding.  I hate the Care Bears.  Hummus is good.  Care Bears–not so much!

I’ve been having nightmares basically nightly. Sometimes its about a bad wedding but mostly of my Fiance changing his mind about wanting to get married to me.
