I had the strangest dream last night. One of those dreams that feels really real, even after you've woken up. Considering how organized I like things to be, it was really more of a nightmare.


Jerad and I were getting married. It was the day of the wedding. A few hours before the ceremony I realized we had never sent out invitations so somehow that meant only family would be there, but no friends. The only way to remedy this was to start making the pocket-fold invites like no one's business, then get them in the mail. (Shut up, it was a dream).

Making all of the invitations made us late for the ceremony. Everyone was sitting in chairs waiting for us. Right before we walked out, I realized that we never wrote any vows, and had never told Taylor that he was supposed to perform the ceremony (not sure why he was performing the ceremony in the first place). So we frantically started writing vows and I was crying because "not enough thought was going into them." Then we started writing a script for Taylor and were trying to figure out how to tell the guests that it was going to be a Quaker style ceremony since they had never got an invitation explaining what it meant.

FINALLY, Jerad and I were ready to walk down the isle when I happened to get a glimpse of myself in the mirror. No Makeup. Crap! I quickly threw on some makeup and by this time we were an hour and a half late, and people. were. pissed. Then Jerad sprung a "surprise!" on me. We were moving the ceremony to a different place. So everyone had to get back in their cars and drive 40 minutes to the mystery location. During the mayhem and foolishness that followed, I noticed Beth and Tyson weren't there and started to freak out and call them over and over because I refused to get married without "my lesbian soul mate" in attendance.


I think I'll elope to play it safe.

Oh, and also, www.dreammoods.com:


To see a wedding in your dream, symbolizes a new beginning or transition in your current life. They reflect your issues about commitment and independence. Alternatively, your wedding dream refers to feelings of bitterness, sorrow, or death. Such dreams are often negative and highlight some anxiety or fear. If you dream that the wedding goes wrong or ends in disaster, then it suggests that there is more negativity that needs to be dealt with.

To dream that you are getting married to your current spouse again, represents your wedded bliss and happiness. It highlights your strong commitment to each other. It may also signify a new phase (such as parenthood) that you are entering in your life.

To dream that you are planning your own wedding to someone you never met, is a metaphor symbolizing the union of your masculine and feminine side. It represents a transitional phase where you are seeking some sort of balance between your aggressive side and emotional side. Two previously conflicting aspects are merging together as one.

If you are getting married and have dreams of your pending wedding, then it highlights the stress of organizing a wedding. Conflicts over wedding details, tension with family and in-laws, fear of commitment, and loss of independence may all cause wedding anxiety dreams. Research has shown that up to 40% of brides and grooms have dreams about their ceremony and things going perfectly.

aaaand, just for good measure,:


To see a Quaker in your dream, symbolizes your convictions and spiritual beliefs. It also represents peace and serenity.

To dream that you are a Quaker, suggests that you are seeking some solace. You need to be more self-sufficient.
