I wouldn’t call this a nightmare, but I totally had a new wedding dream last night. It was just weird. Our location was totally different – this random reception hall. And I realized as we got there that I had forgotten to print table numbers and escort cards, so no one was going to know where to go. (My response in the dream: meh, whatever). And then all of a sudden the ceremony was over and I had to keep messing with my rings – one was bigger than the other, so they didn’t sit nicely on my hand and it was annoying me.
Then it was time for the receiving line (which we’re not even doing) and it turned out to be like an obstacle course designed by Escher – no small feat in a mermaid dress. I kept walking across balance beams and jumping onto different levels to try to meet all the guests and talk to them.
Like I said, weird. I blame it on the fact that I’ve been making paper flowers for hours at a time each evening.
Anyone else have random wedding dreams?

lol wow that’s a crazy dream!
I’ve had some wedding dreams, more and more as my wedding get’s closer and closer! Some have been nice, just playing through how the day may go and others have been nightmare-ish where all kinds of things go wrong, lol. I can’t really remember any of the details.

Yes, I have a recurring dream that varies on the same theme: the wedding day is here, but I don’t have any of my shit together!! I’ll dream that all of a sudden it’s time to get married and I realized I didn’t even finalize the menu, or picked centerpieces, or chosen a song to dance to with my dad, etc. They are terrifying!!! But I know it’s just becasue I’m feeling unprepared in my real life. I’ll wake up and be soooo thankful that I have five months to go and plenty of time to get certain things done!

I read your original post a while back and I remember thinking, dreaming about your wedding? …this will never happen to me.
Well, I am eating my words. It happened last night, and I was miserable.
Somehow we ended up having a split wedding with a giant Italian family that I didn’t know, in the basement of someone’s house. I didn’t know anyone around me except for my BM’s. My makeup artist came and gave me purple eyeshadow and liquid liner cat eyes and then sprayed my face with a mist that made it impossible to get the makeup off. I wasn’t happy with the makeup because it wasn’t want I wanted, but makeup artist refused to fix it because she liked it. We had a screaming match and then we realized that I had never booked the hair person. I turned to my BM’s and suddenly they all had wild man/bed head/never brushed their hair once. I started to cry.
Then somehow it turned into, there was no beer and I lost my cell phone. So we started looking through all the rooms in this basement to find beer and my cell phone. There were angry Italian men screaming at me for beer and I said I didn’t know where it was. Then someone handed me a Jack and Coke and said that it was better anyways. (I HATE Jack Daniels!) lol
So, I woke up this morning, exhausted and emotionally spent. …and I’m beginning to worry that I am a closet alcoholic…as I spent most of the night looking for beer. lol
OMG…I want to have a nap and it’s only 10am. 🙁

I just had my first wedding related dream/nightmare and it was incredibly stupid but traumatizing at the same time lol.
In my dream, my venue had changed without my knowledge and someone rushed me to a church I’d never heard of before in a different town. When we arrived, I realized I wasn’t wearing my dress and that I had really bad bed head and no makeup on. I panicked and told my bridesmaids I needed to go back home and get my wedding dress and I needed to hire a hairstylist still!!! They told me the ceremony started in 30 minutes and I didn’t have time to go home because it was a two hour drive away so I’d have to walk down the aisle as is. They kept telling me that I looked fine and my Fiance would love me no matter what I looked like anyhow. I was like “ARE YOU GUYS INSANE? I LOOK LIKE A FREAK. HELP ME!!!”. They just sat there giving me strange looks.
Then I realised I hadn’t finished half of my DIY projects so only half of the tables at our reception would have centerpieces…and Fiance hadn’t done a seating plan like he’d promised so we didn’t know where anyone was going to sit. Basically, anything that could go wrong was going wrong. I was SO RELIEVED to wake up and find out it was only a dream. *sigh*

Is this a competition? If so, I think I win. A couple of nights ago I had a dream my FH ran away with the minister who is also my Dude of Honour. Then they…were intimate. In the aisle. So then I married one of the bridesmaids instead.
It was weird, and I think Freud would have a field day.
