    hahahaha…I used to have those dreams ALL THE TIME! And then AFTER, I got engaged I had dreams of losing my ring or that it broke & fell apart. And then, once I started planning the wedding, I had dreams that my wedding was a disaster…and nothing was how I wanted.

    I think we’re just nervous, that’s why we have those nightmares =) It’s all part of the fun!

    Had the wierdest engagement dream last night, it was like we were time warping, the scenery kept changing one minute we were at the air show, the next was the botanical gardens, then we ended up in my aunts pool house. It was crazy, then the ring was the ring that my mom’s boyfriend picked out for her. Very weird…

    I’ve had engagement dreams together with the hideous ring, it’s too funny to hear this happens to so many of us.

    Everytime I have an engagement ring the… the ring is awful and the proposal doesn’t make sense (like in the middle of watching a high school basketball game?).  

     

     I know the real thing will be muccch better.

    I had one last week, I dreamed that me and my BF were engaged and he had given me an absolutely gorgeous ring. It was so amazing, you can probably imagine my disappointment when I woke up and realised it was a dream 🙁

     

    @sweetheartdealer: I couldn’t stop laughing at your description of the tiger ring 😀

    HAAATE engagement dreams! Your’e either upset in your dream b/c the proposal or ring is awful, or you have a great proposal/ring and then wake up upset because you realize it was all a dream!

    I had this dream about 7 years ago when I was a Senior in college and was with my long time boyfriend of 4 years.  I knew that it was do or die so to speak in terms of our future.  We were 3 months shy of graduating, we had looked at rings the prior summer, getting engaged senior year was totally normal where I went to school and I knew I didn’t want to be with him.  I had this exact dream where he proposed and it was the ugliest ring I had ever seen in my life… it was this cluster of tiny moldy diamond sort of things in this bulky gold band.  I still remember it to this day.  That was when I knew for sure that I couldn’t be with him.  I broke up with him the next day after four years.

    That was a totally different scenario, but I have definitely had wedding nightmares.  They have coincided with me getting the cold feet feelings… more like the shell shock from the initial months after the engagement where I was like, woah, this is for the rest of my life!  It annoys me when he puts our expensive knives in the dishwasher when they are handwash only, can I do this forever?!  After that subsided and I became more calm and sure of my decision (not that I wasn’t sure before because I was, just the whole 70+ years thing kind of freaked me out), the dreams stopped.

    Anyway, I see this is a way old post and you are getting married just a few weeks after me, so congrats lady!

    Haha that’s so hilarious that you had an animal inspired ring in your dream cos mine was too in my dream! I had a dream about 6 months ago (we’re already engaged so it was a wedding day dream) and in my dream my mother in law presented me with my wedding ring that she had picked out – I know, CLEARLY she wears the pants! LOL

    So anyway, she presents me with this ring after I’ve just married her son and the ring was BEYOND nuts. It was MASSIVE, like a whole knuckle worth, yellow, yellow, yellow gold and had a square cut diamond, a round yellow diamond and a pearl in it. THEN to top it all off there was an additional ring, taking it up to the next knuckle (I remember being slightly weirded out in the dream cos I couldn’t bend my finger!) which again was gold and in the shape of a racing horse running, complete with jockey. NUTS! LOL

    Haha. No engagement dreams for me, just wedding dreams. I’ve had dreams about my friends’ weddings too!

    The one I remember most was that I was getting married in a church and some guest was running and tripped over a pew and split his head open. Wtf?

    I’ve had a few, but I can’t really remember them. In one dream though, I got a yellow gold bezel cut solitaire, and after waking up, for the first time I considered a yellow gold ring.

    The last dream I had was more wedding geared and in my dream I was staring at my ringS, band and e-ring, and feeling the finality of it all sink in. I’ve always said that marriage/wedding won’t change us, and after that dream I realized that there will be a slight emotional shift in our relationship afterwards. It’s final, and forever. There is no walking out the door when you’re mad. And even though we treat our relationship as if we’re already married, I think there will be a bit of an emotional shift. Also, I thought it was odd that they were on my right hand. Then again, I wear my promise ring on my right hand, so that’s where I’m used to seeing rings.

    About a year into dating my Fiance, I had a dream that he proposed with a peace sign ring, kind of like this:

    The one he ended up proposing with was much much better.  I had told him about that dream then, and he had threatened that he would buy a peace sign ring as a decoy engagement ring to freak me out.
