Did/does anyone else get nightmares about things going wrong on their wedding day? This is the third time in 3 months that I have got nightmares about thing going wrong on my wedding day. I regret having a 9-10 month engagement and wish it could have been shorter. My wedding is still 6-7 months away and I cannot wait for it to be over!

I made a thread about this exact thing a while back! I’m right there with you, and it’s only been getting worse as my wedding gets closer (Less than 3 months now, ahhh!). I’ve had so many dreams with various things going wrong, from it pouring rain (we are having an outdoor ceremony) to my hair and makeup girls not showing up to my dress getting destroyed to my venue randomly moving our wedding up two months, which led to the loss of all my booked vendors and the guests eating subway sandwiches haha
It can be so stressful, but I try and laugh it off as best I can. I think it’s natural to worry and have these kinds of nightmares! You definitely aren’t alone, Bee <3

I had them for months before my wedding! Just crazy things, but it was kind if exhausting!

I had two nightmares before the wedding. Once I dreamt that my dress wasn’t ready, the plane with my family hadn’t arrived and that I hadn’t paid for everything and it was already the day of the wedding.
But what are your worries exactly about? Something going wrong on your wedding day?

Omg I had SOO many nightmares about 6 months out and then again closer to the day. They ranged from bizarre to realistic and were utterly stupid. Stress dreams are the worst

Dreams are generally not meant to be taken literally. They are the mind’s way of off-loading the flotsam and jetsam of life accumulated during our waking hours.
This is why we can’t go more than 72 hours without sleep without the brain reacting in significant and potentially dangerous (if you try to drive) ways, eg hallucinations and microsleeps.
It’s not the sleeping per se that causes the worst of it; the lack of dreaming is psychologically quite harmful.
Dreams can contain messages, but, those are usually encoded and highly personal.
All of that said, I would wager good money that your wedding-gone-wrong dreams are nothing more than your mind discharging anxiety and nothing at all to be concerned about.
