It was the day of the wedding, and I had done nothing! The Out of Town bags had never gotten done because I forgot to order anything, there were no escort cards, I hadn’t made any of the decorations I am dreaming of, apparently I hadn’t gotten my hair done because at 10 minutes to start time I was still running around in a sweater and jeans with a ponytail. I even poked my head into the ceremony area (which looked nothing like our real ceremony area) to ask my mom to bring my dress and veil out so I could get dressed – she was sitting there along with some of our guests, waiting for it to start. I was saying in tears "How could I let this happen? I didn’t realize it was so close, I kept feeling like I still had months!" Worst part – I had spent the entire day hanging out with my fiance, going out to lunch, and goofing off on the internet. EEEEKKKK!
I worked overnight last night and only slept about 4 hours this morning, but after that dream I had no interest in going back to sleep.

The good news is, Shelli, that you actually do still have months! I think this is totally normal, and just means that our brains are carefully calculating how much we need to get done in the coming weeks/months.
I’m starting to enjoy those kind of dreams because it shows how nutty my sleeping brain can actually be. Dress with a black feather train? Check. Marrying dreaded ex-boyfriend accidentally? Check. I’ve dreamed it all!
And I should say, post-call is the worst. I was on-call last night too, though I don’t remember any wedding anxiety dreams from this morning. I was too busy fending off the dreaded swine flu!

Yeah, thank goodness. I was so relieved when I woke up. I have had dreams like that before. I am super organized so it wouldn’t really happen, but it is really traumatic to realize you haven’t done ANYTHING. Almost like 4 1/2 months went by in one day! 🙂

I think we all have those scary wedding dreams at some point or another! I haven’t had one in a while, but I did dream last night that my Fi died! It was horrible. I woke up panicked and when I finally went back to sleep I dreamed that I went into labor and gave birth to twins, and I didn’t even know that I was pregnant! Crazy stuff! Thankfully they’re only dreams.
