Top 5 Nightmares I've Had Leading Up to My Wedding
Don't get me wrong, I'm super excited for my upcoming wedding, which is about, eek, two months away now. However, there's a lot of stuff left to do before then and a lot of things that could possible go wrong. My super AWESOME brain apparently processes this stress by serving me up ridiculous dream scenarios that just stress me out more. My brain is sort of a jerk. Here are some of my favorites.
 
1. There's a church pot-luck happening where my reception is supposed to be.
Granted, my wedding is not even AT a church; it's a winery. In my dream, though, it seemed perfectly reasonable that the owner of the site had forgotten to tell the church they couldn't use that room on the day of my wedding. They ended up just attending the wedding too - hey, at least they brought their own food!
 
2. I forgot to book an appointment to get my hair done until five minutes before the wedding.
There I am, about to change into my white dress, and my hair is wet and un-styled. I remembered thinking, "Well, I guess I could just pull it back in a bun, but I really wanted something a little fancier today - I do actually need to book an appointment. Hopefully I don't end up waiting that long."
 
3. My dress won't appear unless I imagine it.
Granted, I'm not naked, it's just that I'm wearing, like, sweatpants or something until I think really hard about what my dress is supposed to be and then look in a mirror, and it appears. The upside is that I get to keep changing my mind throughout the ceremony.
 
4. Our interdenominational officiant is replaced by a Catholic priest.
Mind you, I'm not upset that someone switched my officiant on me at the last minute, I'm scared that the priest is going to realize that I'm not Catholic and that I'm going to mess up the ceremony somehow. I remember crossing myself and thinking, "I'm glad I already knew how to do that!"
 
5. I don't know the groom.
I mean, he seems like a very nice fellow. Don't get me wrong. It's just that I think I already picked out a groom, and I'd like to keep that one. Does anyone know what happened to the old groom?

Shannon Corder is a writer living in Los Angeles who has been driven insane with wedding planning. She'll be back again in October, when she's back from her honeymoon..
