I always hear people talking about the pre-wedding nightmares with everything going wrong. Funny thing is, I only had one, the night we got engaged. Now that we’re married though, I’ve had nightmares that we’re still planing the wedding and things are going wrong. I’ve also had nightmares of bad things happening to me and Darling Husband, like one of us dying or cheating (totally not something I’m worried about in real life btw) Sooo weird! Am I crazy? Anyone else have this happen?

I had one just last night.
In my dream, I was back in my home country and somehow I had spontaneously married my high school boyfriend who was ecstatic about us spending the rest of our lives together. Everybody else was very happy, too, that I was back and staying. But I remembered that I was going to marry Darling Husband in a few months, and that I didn’t love my HS boyfriend and only wanted to be with Darling Husband, so I had to get rid of HS boyfriend and get back to the States. I was worried about upsetting everyone at home, but more so worried that Darling Husband and I could not get married anymore because of the stupid mistake I made.
So yeah, if you are crazy, I’m right there with ya.

So funny, I JUST had one last night. Everything was going wrong- pouring rain I had to wait outside in, getting soaked, tourists in our church, the music not playing, my aunt losing the centerpieces and saying we didn’t need them anyway. Basically EVERYTHING was wrong. I woke up and was like, I am SO glad I didn’t have that dream before the wedding.

So glad you posted this! I have had a few doozies since our wedding, mostly about things going horribly wrong with our reception and I thought I was just abnormal.
Now, granted, our lovely outdoor reception got totally rained out and we had a million things go wrong, so I’m not completely over all that yet. Even though everyone seemed to have a great time, I’m the type that mulls over all the things that went wrong and what I “should” have done differently, so all that is coming out in my dreams, I think.
I compare these dreams to the “oh crap, it’s the last class I need to graduate college and I haven’t showed up all semester and am trying to take the final knowing I won’t graduate, and I’m sitting there naked” crazy college dreams I still have 15 years later. 🙂

I am SO glad I’m not the only one who has those dreams! For me, it’s always high school, and I haven’t been to French class all year but need to take the exam. But I’m afraid the teacher doesn’t even know who I am and won’t let me, and I won’t be able to graduate.

I seriously came on here to post this exact same question. I’ve been having post-wedding traumatic stress dreams. I had a dream the other night that my mother was determined that we needed to get re-married in a church because, since our wedding was outdoors, we weren’t “really” married. Now…she never said anything that ridiculous during our planning, but she did make it clear that she was unhappy it wasn’t in a church, and she gave me a lot of grief over it. Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you’ll ever do–I seriously think it was harder than my two master’s degrees combined. So it makes sense I guess that we’d still have lingering nightmares afterwards.
