I had a nightmare last night.

I dreamt that I was getting married and for whatever reason, I was alloted two weeks to plan the entire event. Not only that, but I wasn't allowed to help. I was forced to trust others to plan MY wedding.

Needless to say, it was an absolute disaster.

The colors were mauve and white. Mauve? Seriously? Who even likes mauve?

The bouquets were made up of dusty old plastic flowers. And worse, my bridesmaids were told to wear their "best easter dresses". So, just imagine pastel peter cottontails with bouquets of plastic, dirty mauve and white flowers as my bridesmaids. It just doesn't get much worse than that, my friends. It was really awful.

My dress was pure lace and hideous and for some God forsaken reason, I was forced to wear a white top hat with an off white dress. DISGUSTING.

Right before I was to talk down the aisle, I quickly changed my mind as I just could not sucuumb to the idea that I was having the world's ugliest wedding.

So, I quickly ran in the opposite direction, ditched the top hat and left poor Ben standing at the altar.

Later on, after the shock of it all had subsided I attempted to reach him by phone and he would not talk to me and proclaimed to my mother that we were in fact, "over" , for good.

I just wanted so badly to tell him that I wanted a better wedding and that I didn't want to feel like the cat in the hat with easter bunny bridesmaids on my wedding day.

I was devastated and hyperventilating in the dream. Panic set in and I was beside myself. So upset.

I literally woke up crying and was 20 minutes late to work this morning because of this ridiculous dream.

So intense.

Yikes! What a terrible dream!

I have to tell you, though, that regardless of what the wedding will look like (when God ordains that it is time for a wedding), the wedding is just for one day...but the marriage is for the rest of your life. I don't for one second think that this is the destiny for your real-life wedding, but if it were, it wouldn't be the end of the world. You're gorgeous, and you'd rock it either way.

I had 3 less than three months to plan my wedding. It was beautiful, yes, but if I had more time to do it, it would have been different. Does that mean my marriage isn't what I want it to be? Absolutely not.

I realize that all of this probably wasn't the point of this post.....and that you probably weren't looking for this kind of "advice," but I somehow felt like I had to say that. =)

Seriously, though - you'd be beautiful in a top hat or whatever. NO worries. =) You could make it work.

Madness!!!! I'm just glad it really was a nightmare and NOT real, phew! When the day comes, it will all be perfect :)

Yikes, well, so glad that it was ONLY a dream and those dreams are silly by taking simple fears and blowing them way out of proportion! I have no doubt in the future that your wedding will be lovely and amazing and go well.

Just wait until you DO get married. I had the worst nightmares leading up to the big day - my dress wasn't altered, the wedding started and I didn't have any make up on, the weather was horrible..and on and on and on. It's all fun though and everything turns out for the best :)
