my wedding is 2 weeks away (aah) and i am starting to have nightly dreams/nightmares about the wedding. has this happened to anyone else? i’m starting to feel like the wedding is a sick obsession. i find that if i’m not actively doing something that requires a lot of concentration, the wedding is ALL i can think about!
i am definitely nervous, excited, happy, anxious, etc- but all of this obsession is making it feel like the wedding is not real and that its not really going to happen. its putting SOOOO much pressure on the real day that its making me more nervous than i want to be
any other brides know the feeling? advice on how to make it stop??

Ha! I have not had actual wedding dreams yet, but they probably will start if I don’t slow down! I have wondered if the relationship I am in with this wonderful man is real, or can possibly exist.
I dove straight into wedding planning the week I knew he was going to propose (yes, BEFORE we were actually engaged) and I have not even had time to enjoy being engaged!! It has made it all surreal, and made me feel a bit detached. I am already so focused on wedding I am having a hard time focusing on other things.
What I am trying to do is focus on relationships and the reasons we are getting married. I am working on spending time with friends and family as well as spending good quality time with FH. Romantic, slow down, quality time to focus on us and not the day. It is helping IMMENSELY!

Lol…I actually just had a wedding dream last night. It was a welcome change because before this I’d only had wedding nightmares! I’ve been having them occasionally for months. I’m sorry, I don’t have any tips for you on how to make them stop. But yeah, you’re not alone!

I was having night terrors leading up to my wedding. I kept seeing things in my sleep and freaking out and then waking up and having no memory for it. Hopefully it will go away soon!

I had so many wedding dreams in the month before my wedding! I was just so excited that I couldn’t believe it was real so it’s all my subconscious could think about. Take a day and go out with your Maid/Matron of Honor doing something that is totally unrelated to weddings and remember, it’s real and everything is going to be fine.

I’m already having nightmares…last night I dreamed I hadn’t made a hair appointment and it was my wedding day. And we didn’t have time to buy the centerpieces so only 3 tables had the centerpieces we wanted. OK, now that it’s in writing it sounds so dumb, but at the time it was TERRIFYING!

I wish I had some advice, but I’ve only had two wedding dreams (that I can remember) and the most recent one involved me wearing white lacy underwear and my wedding dress was see through, so everyone could see them while I was walking down the aisle.

I was just going to post this myself. I had my first wedding nightmare last night and today is the 2 week mark for our wedding. It was hair related because I still don’t know how I’m doing my hair. I had a dream that the girl I hired, from Boston Store where we registered (in reality we’re going to a salon the day of) to come do my hair never showed. It was 10 minutes till we had to start taking pictures and I wasn’t dressed, no make up and no hair done. I called the store and bawled.
This IS an obsession and I’m really hoping we can get most everything done next week so we can take the week of the wedding to enjoy the last bit of engagement. I think I’m dreaming on that one!

I have 6 months to go (only engaged since August!) and holy crap, I’ve already had 2:(
The first was when I planned on having BM’s- well FH and I were at a DiscoveryZone type place but apparently that’s where we were getting married. There were all these couples there and I was sitting on a stage and it hit me like “OMG, we’re getting married next” then I realized we had no guests, my “bridesmaids” showed up but I’d never bothered to find dresses and everything was a MESS!
Last night I had a really terrible one!!! FH and I were on a playground and I was super drunk and not coherent AT ALL. I dropped his ring and stepped on it and started loudly objecting my part of the vows. It’s all very fuzzy because I was drunk in the dream and NOTHING made sense, but from what I gather from sobering up in the dream and now being awake I believe someone else put his ring on his finger and helped me through my vows. The feeling of being like “Oh shit, we’re married and I don’t remember a thing” was AWFUL.
We’re having an 8 month engagement even though it’s a very simple thing we’ll be doing, and the part I’m looking forward to about an engagement is the suspense leading up to it. So missing that anticipation paying off was just hearbreaking.
I can not have these horrid nightmares for 6 more months 🙁 I feel ya
