Ohhh yes, the wedding!
This is a weird one. I once dreamed about a wedding. I can see everything - the food (piles of steaming beef, gelatin, vegetables, cream, milk, tea, cheeses, fruits, cookies and cakes) - the people all dressed up in fashionable clothing; everyone is dressed circa 1910 -16. The food tables are arranged within the columns lining the walls, which are a sky blue. There are tall arched windows and it is late at night. As for myself ... I am a little girl, about five or six years old. I am wearing a maroon dress with lace and I am hiding under a table, watching the people laugh and talk at the bride and groom's table which is in the center. I can smell the food, the wine, the people's odours mixed in with the perfume and plumes of pipe smoke. The beef is wonderfully cooked and I can SMELL it ... it smells so delicious. And the cakes! All I want is a cake! And so I find myself sneaking over to the food table and hoping mommy won't see me but instead a man with a large moustache is scolding me. All I can do is cry.
Then I time-jig to the outside. It's early morning and I wake up. Mommy is humming happily to herself as she tucks herself under daddy's arm. We are in a carriage or car and the lights along the street are flickering. There is a warm light coming from the house and all I want is my bed.
The thing about this dream is that I can remember every single detail of it. The smells especially. I recall waking up and still being able to smell the beef sizzling away. The man with the moustache had dark hair. The tables were arranged in a C shape. The windows were at least two stories tall. All of the faces are sort of blurred, the sounds are loud. Every sense is present. It was as if this dream wasn't a dream, but had actually happened. It was more than a memory, and certainly not a dream.
Strangest of all, the grand old hotel in my city has the exact same room within it, and whenever I go into the hotel I feel as if I have always been there. The room is exactly the way it had been in my dreams ... only now, it's older ....
Another odd thing was that when I awoke I felt as if I was falling back into my body. All tingly at the moment I was about to wake up. Whatever that was ... I haven't felt it in awhile because the dream was about ten years ago.
There have been other little things that I remember, but this is the most detailed.
