What Does it Mean to Dream of a Wedding?

Weddings are a union of two people who are in love. It is a commitment “for better or worse” and can have a number of different meanings, depending on the other details of the dream.

In our dreams, we might be in a wedding as the bride or groom or as a guest attending the ceremony. Understanding the symbolism of a wedding can help you understand your role in the dream.

Commitment & Promise:

When two people get married, they are making a commitment to one another. Most weddings involve the couple making a vow to each other.

If you are dreaming of a wedding, it is very possible that you are thinking about a promise you may have made or a promise someone has made to you.

Unity & Coming Together

Weddings are often associated as an event for when “two become one”.

To dream that you are getting married may indicate that two important aspects of yourself are merging. In your daily waking life, you might find yourself combining responsibilities or finding things are connected to each other in ways you didn’t expect.

It can also mean you are learning ways to unite with others. For example, maybe you are finding a common bond between your differences with another person.

Some Common Wedding Dream Examples

You dream you are getting married to a co-worker or boss: This often means a level of commitment to your work or career. Do you love your job? Do you feel like your job is secure? This dream could be a fear about job security or it could mean you are committed to doing your best in your career.

Dreaming of Marrying an Ex: Dreaming about an ex can mean a number of different things, but often times if you are marrying an ex in a relationship it can symbolize being healed or whole again. See our article on What it Means to Dream of an Ex to understand your dream further.

Dreaming of Marrying a Family Member: Don’t be grossed out – often times this family member in a dream is only to give you some hint at what qualities you might be looking for in a partner. If you dreamt you married your brother or a cousin, it could mean there is some aspect about this person that would be desirable or undesirable to have in a future or current partner.

Other Meanings When You Are the Person Getting Married: This dream could also reveal your literal desire to get married. You might be thinking of settling down and starting a family of your own.

Attending a Wedding as a Guest: If you are at a wedding as a guest, this may mean you are feeling like a spectator in some aspect of your life. Who is the person getting married? What type of role do they play? For example, if you dream that you are at the wedding of someone else, you might subconsciously feel as if you are always “on the sidelines” while the other person gets the spotlight.


Questions to Help You Interpret Your Dream About a Wedding

In order to help you understand this dream better, it is useful to pay attention to other details of the wedding and dream. Learning how to identify dream symbols can be useful in understanding what other parts of the dream are important.

Here are some questions to ask:

Where is the wedding taking place? Is it an ancient cathedral? A small chapel? On the shores of the beach?

Who is at the wedding? The people in your dream that are at the wedding all play a role, just like characters in a movie. Take note of their personality aspects or whether there are any personal associations you might have for the person.

What colors are present in the dream? There are many different meanings to colors, and many weddings choose certain colors as a theme for a reason. Understanding the different color symbol meanings can help give you insight to the overall mood and message of the dream.

      • I travelled encountering different dead bodies on the side of the road. When I am at the church I am hesitant to attend the wedding of my childhood sweetheart. Because i am not prepared with the dress and make up. I am also afraid to his reaction to see me on his wedding day. I am from work and the only dress I have has a print of different religious beliefs not appropriate to the religion of the wedding ceremony. Her sister offer me her dress. but I refuse to wear because it doesn’t fit my size. It is larger than my size. then her sister give me a white or colorful shawl to cover that prints on my dress.

  1. So what if you are married, dream that you are supposed to marry a couple (no clue who but am ordained to do so), but the couple never shows & nobody knows what’s going on. I’ve been married 8 years but the last 4 he has dealt with addiction & our marriage needless to say is struggling.

I was on the drums and asked the musicians to play to keep the guess entertained. They didn’t. Then I got tired and was about to leave. I saw my sister in a frantic talking about things not right and looking sad. I’m not sure if I left or tried to help her

  3. I’m married and I’ve had 5 dreams that I am getting married and preparing for it, but always wake up before it actually happens. When I wake I do not know who I was supposed to be marrying. I hope it was my husband. But the dream mostly is about preparing.

  8. You are feeling the loss and absence of your husband. He left you and can not return except through memories. He knows you are waiting for him. He will still be with you forever. But it is okay to move on and find happiness.

  13. I’ve been divorce over 40 years I’ve had a horrible husband and father of my two deceased children he offered in the 25 years of my life nothing but extreme rejection to us!! Cheating, drinking, and more!! After rejection to his children he rejected his Grandchildren and Great Grand. They hardly know him.

My dreams are frequent always upsetting. I want him out of my dreams.!!! It has never been a good dream. I feel he’s haunted my dreams with such negativity! Plus I feel he contributed the death of my children with nothing but rejection!!!!!!! Txs for listening.

  15. I have had a few reoccurring dreams of being a bride. In these dreams I would be doing something like reading a book or finding the perfect dress. I was dressed in an elegant wedding dress but often had armor underneath the dress. Suddenly, I would see a dragon approximately 20 feet from me. It was at least three times my size and clearly hated me. I would be backed into a corner or alleyway fighting this thing until I received help or was exhausted. Usually a man would also be there helping me fight whether I knew him or not. He would also encourage me saying things like “I will never leave you or forsake you.” I would wake up after defeating this dragon.
