Ever since we started planning our wedding I have been going though phases where I have dreams about the day epically failing. Sometimes it is around a specific element, sometimes (like last night) it was about the whole thing going horribly wrong. Maybe this one was sparked by trying on my dress, since in my dream it fit the way it does right now (big and not flattering at all!).
In my dream, our wedding was a complete failure. No one came, all the reception décor was missing (specifically all the table runners I (in real life) have yet to make never got finished, the folding tables were just randomly placed around the room…it was not beautiful or visionary at all. It was boring…and very disappointing. The other main element that really stands out was our cake, or should I say lack thereof. I my dream, Matt was in charge of the wedding cake, and he had forgotten to order one. So, during our reception, he and I trekked to Safeway (in my unaltered too-big dress) to get one emergency made. We decided on a quick and easy three tired white idea that the lady promised to have ready in a few minutes…but when it cake out, it was bright teal with yellow swirls…awful! She said, “oops, I thought you wanted a birthday cake”, and to fix her mistake brought us a yellow cake. Also totally not what we wanted! I remember my mom lecturing me about how disappointing this wedding turned out. It was awful! When my iphone marimba alarm went of at 5:20 I snapped out of the dream and into a pit of worry about the wedding. Matt told me it was all going to be ok, but for some reason the dream really shook me!
So I have decided to think positive and banish these dreams. Lauren, it is time to get a hold of yourself and realize that everything will go great. You are so far ahead in planning that you have nothing to worry about…not to mention tons of people who are willing to help out! August is still months away, and you have plenty of time to work out all the details (including the perfect cake!) and the dress will be beautiful when it is finally the right size. Ahhh, wedding stress. Good thing I don’t worry about it when I am awake!
