- Wedding: October 2019 - City, State
Hello all! 🙂 This is my first post, so bare with me.
Has anyone else experienced wedding nightmares before getting married? If you have, tell me about one you had and how you dealt with it.
I have about 4 months left until my wedding and woke up this morning in a panic because of a crazed wedding nightmare! :’D
In my dream it featured me sitting at a table with my mom and bridesmaids. We were indoors (my venue is outside) and there were tables decorated in bright pinks and teals (my colours are plum, lavender, and black with some silver accents) and there were tons of flowers everywhere (I do not want flowers. We are planning on doing succulent bouquets and boutineers and accessorizing tables without flowers). The window towards the outside suggested it was early afternoon (I have a late afternoon ceremony and evening reception).
My mom looks at me and says “It’s almost time, I hope your ready! Isn’t it just lovely in here? I hope you love the flowers!”
I look and my mom and bridesmaids are staring at me with these big smiles and I feel like a dark hole is surrounding me. I blurt/yell out “No, I don’t like the flowers! I never wanted flowers! I never wanted any of this!” And I run off.
Now i see my dress and I am wearing the dress I have purchased already, so there was one thing that I had picked out. My mom comes into the room and starts crying/yelling at me saying “You better get out there and appreciate it! I spent thousands of dollars on this and I think it’s beautiful and you need to get over yourself! People are waiting on you!” (My fiance and I are paying for most of the wedding. We have gotten some help from either side and it is very much appreciated, but no way either parents are putting thousands towards it.)
I reply “You just made it what you wanted and didn’t think about me! I refuse to get married like this! I just want everyone to leave!”
She said “well that is not going to happen. We will wait here until you get over yourself”
Now I just sat there in the room and cried. Noone I am close to came to check in on me, not even my fiance (who is very caring). I texted him and told him I’m sorry and that I would like to talk to him and that I loved him and he replied with “I’ll let you know if i feel like talking.”
I woke up after that and my heart was just sunk in my chest. I left the room (fiance was up already) and told him about it and he gave me a big hug and told me not to worry and that it was just a bad dream. I know it was just a dream, but I feel like it hit allot of my underlying fears that I didn’t necessarily realize that I had.
Are these dreams a normal thing when it comes to planning your wedding? :’D nobody warned me about this
