- Wedding: October 2013
First, some background. (Sorry if this gets long!) This weekend I went to a rental company to try to get an idea of what decor we want. Our colors are plum and gray, and I really want plum satin tablecloths.
My mom keeps saying how I don’t need to see the reception room before our entrance and how it should be a surprise. But I’m very detail-oriented, and I want to see the room at least partially set up before the wedding in case I don’t like how something looks. My mom thinks this will “ruin the reveal,” but I really couldn’t care less. Seeing the room for the first time will not be the highlight of the day for me, I’m sure, but if I don’t like how it looks that might dampen my mood a bit.
Anyway, last night I dreamed that I went to look at the reception room before the ceremony. It wasn’t completely set up yet, but the tables were up. Instead of a rich deep plum color, the tablecloths were a light purple that clashed with our other plum accents. No one else had noticed they were the wrong color. We couldn’t reach the company we had rented them from. Then people started coming in and wanting to take pictures with me (again, before the wedding) and all I wanted to do was fix the tablecloths.
What dreams have you had about wedding-related mishaps?
