Wedding Dream

Wednesday, April 9th, 2003 · 1 Comment

On Sunday night I had my first wedding-related dream. It was the day of the service and nothing was going as planned. My groomsmen and my family were nowhere to be found. The minister wasn’t around. There was general chaos in the air. The dream was caused by anxiety yet was somehow comforting. It also made the wedding, now less than 4 months away, seem much more real (it was a big reality check, in a way) — to have been there in my subconscious and have experienced what the feeling might be like makes me feel a bit more relaxed about the whole affair (err, the occasion; I suppose use of the word “affair” in this context isn’t quite appropriate).

The dream reminded me of the one I had shortly before my college commencement in 1999: I dreamt that it was the day of graduation and I was missing the whole thing. I recall having told my Mom this dream; she said that everyone has that dream. I wonder if everyone has dreams prior to their weddings about missing the event.

I suppose my wedding dream from two nights ago was the first of what may be several more to come as the Big Day approaches. Jen has already had wedding-related dreams. Of course, she’s the one in charge and taking care of most of the planning, so that makes sense.

    I think it’s a very interesting dream Gabe, and I will do my best to make sure at least the groomsmen show up. Jen’s already put me in charge of “keeping track of the boys.” =) I can try to work on it, but I’m not sure about being able to corral your family. I can’t wait for this wedding, it’s great to hear you guys reaching the stage where it’s beginning to seem real.
