News Alert: I'm Getting MARRIED. What????

Even though I've been engaged for 5 months now, and we have been living together for over a year, it's just hit me. I'm getting married. I'm getting married in 7 months. Oh My God. Don't get me wrong, I'm ecstatic, but now I constantly have these weird dreams about the wedding. They're awful. A few weeks ago I dreamed that it was the day of the wedding, we show up at the reception, the caterer is there, but there's no food. The caterer then informs me that I forgot to book them and he's just there to tell me about it. What a guy. So I then have to go to the grocery store, but I changed out of my dress and into a tshirt and shorts, but with pantyhose on, and order sandwich trays. The girl at the counter doesn't believe that this is really happening to me so I prove it to her by showing her that I have pantyhose on. Apparently, that does it. So she is now trying to convince me to buy crab claws and wants me to try them first. So, I'm at the grocery store, and trying to crack open a crab claw (because she couldn't crack it for me for whatever reason) with these weird looking boiled shrimp all around me. I woke up in a panic and called the caterer the next morning. We are absolutely not having seafood at the wedding.

Then last night, I had this dream that I forgot to book the church. We show up, I realize my mistake, so they let us turn a normal Sunday mass into my wedding ceremony. All of these people stood up, gave me dirty looks, and left. Just walked out of church. I then realized what I was wearing. A dress, hideous and very different from the one that I've bought, and a big white straw sunhat. Yeah, I know. But this part kept repeating over and over, all with different outcomes. Another time, I forgot to book the church, but so did about 3 other girls, so we were all in our dresses and had this weird big ceremony on Sunday morning with people walking out and the priest scolding us and telling us that we should really be more prepared next time. Next time???

My dreams never make sense. This is getting ridiculous. We may just have to go to Vegas.

My most memorable pre-wedding dream consisted of me going jogging with wet hair and no make-up and finding out that I had five minutes to get to the church. There I was, walking down the aisle in a borrowed dress with dripping wet hair and that post-jogging stench...

Give us some more awkwardness! We crave your awkward stories!

my best pre-wedding dream was about the guy i dumped to start dating john. he (paddy -- he is irish) was fiddling with my engagement ring and saying how much he wished he'd given me one first. man, i thought about that one all day long.
too bad i didnt listen to it!! hahahaha :)

Haha, they've actually started getting better now that the planning is starting to finally come into place. I haven't had the catering one in a while! No crab leg platters from HEB for me!
