I've read a few other blogs where the author has written about their wedding nightmares… I didn't think this would happen to me. But this morning I woke up in a cold sweat after a terrifying dream involving and revolving around my wedding.
Basically, it was all wrong from the start. It wasn't held at a church or a beautiful outdoor venue- my entire dream wedding was held within the banquet room of some hotel. Eww. Totally not me. And the colors were very reminiscent of the wedding in Steel Magnolias… (“My colors are blush and bashful,” -‘Her colors are PINK and PINK'.) Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of all colors. It's the artist in me. All my life I've never really had a favorite color because I could never decide- (but that might be more about my indecisiveness than about colors…) Anyway, I just don't see Pepto-Bismol pink as a color option for myself.
I apparently was so swept up in the craziness of the day that I never got my hair done and only had makeup on one side of my face. WTF? I know this wouldn't happen in real life but OMG. I looked like hell. And then, for some reason or another, my 3 close high-school friends/bridesmaids never showed up- which in my dream I didn't realize until the next day. How could I overlook that? There was a reception and I had alot of fun, we drank and danced the night away. E and I looked at each other at one point and giggled and said, “We did it! We're MARRIED!” That was probably the best part- feeling that relief that I can't wait to feel a little over 9 months from now!
And then it seemed that the dream fast forwarded far into the future, but I later realized it was really like a day or two after the wedding. I was back waiting tables at some crappy restaurant, serving some seriously rude customers who all kept gawking at the fact that I had gotten married so young. (Excuse me? I will be 25 when we get married- do people even consider that to be really young? And why the hell was I waiting tables? I have a perfectly good BFA in Graphic Design!)
I can't believe the wedding nightmare fairy visited me last night… I never thought it would happen to me. Hopefully it's like lightning, and doesn't strike the same bride twice. All in all it was terrible and I hope it never happens again.
Did any of you have terrible dreams involving your wedding?
