The first one I had, the entire bridal party, including us was running way behind getting to the venue and nobody seemed motivated to hurry up. When we finally did show up, we realized we never hired an officiant. The wedding was canceled.

Two days ago, I had a dream that only 5 people came to our wedding. The bridal party didn’t even show up. Toward the end of the reception, my friends were all calling to ask me how it went, and just ignored me when I asked why they didn’t show up.

I just had my first one too.  I don’t have a bridal party, but in my dream, I guess my FH has asked a bunch of his family or something to be my bridesmaids.  So there’s a bunch of women I don’t know in homemade dresses that are like quilts with the squares made up of red, gold, and blue lamé.  And all I could say was, but my flowers are lavender, that’s not going to match.

I’m getting married in 12 days (God help me), and I had a wedding nightmare a few days ago where for some reason our venue didn’t work out and we ended up having the wedding at my Mom’s house. Instead of having the ceremony in her backyard, we were setting the ceremony up in a spare bedroom lol. Makes no sense

I got married a million years ago, but remember my pre-wedding dream so clearly… I dreamed that I was walking down the aisle in my white gown, and looked down to see that I was wearing black wool socks and men’s shoes!

So silly, but I woke in a panic.

I’m sorry to hear that, bee, and am glad your husband was supportive after you woke up! I hate having that sunken feeling after a bad dream.. sometimes it’ll stick with me throughout the day. I’ve had a few where it’s the day-of and nothing has been planned.. I’m sure I’ll have more closer to my date.

Have you noticed feeling more stressed, or have you been doing more planning lately focused on details? Nightmares are usually correlated with how much stress you experience during the day; the more stress during the day, the higher the likelihood of a nightmare that night. If you’re doing much of the work yourself (particularly with color schemes, or other bigger aspects), I could see how the inverse “what if…” would show up in your dreams — that everything is NOT what you wanted and you’d have NO support. Planning such a big and important event is incredibly stressful. The more you can talk through some of your concerns (here – I’ve found this community/board to be quite supportive, resourceful, and validating; or with friends, etc.), and also practice good self-care, the better your likelihood of not having a nightmare. 

Good luck, bee smile
