Weddings are romantic, magical, and usually full of happiness. If you are engaged and planning a wedding, it can be common to have dreams about the big day, but if you’re not, dreaming about marriage could hold some deeper meaning.
Marriage and weddings are very symbolic, and this is quite helpful in a dream when your subconscious or emotions are trying to get a message through to you. If you try to pay attention, you might pick up on some very important details.
If you have a dream of someone getting married – what does it mean? Wedding dreams, and dreams of someone getting married, can be a representation of our anxieties about our life and recent changes. They can also symbolize our excitement for the future, and highlight levels of self-acceptance.
Not everyone will have the same marriage dreams, and different factors in scenes in a marriage dream do alter the meaning a bit. Understanding the different scenarios, and then the meaning of a marriage dream can help you better understand what yours might mean.
If you find yourself consistently curious about what your dreams mean, you should consider doing what I do, and just keep my absolute favorite dream dictionary on your bedside table.
Not only is it fun to browse through, but when you wake up in the mornings and the dreams are fresh on your mind, this is the absolute best time to find an accurate interpretation.
If you aren’t going to get a dream dictionary, you should at least consider keeping a simple dream journal by your bedside. I can’t emphasize enough how important it can be to reflect back on your dreams. I personally use this beautiful hardcover one from Amazon.
Dreaming Of Someone’s Wedding
Most of us would prefer to dream about our own wedding, as long as things go right and the waiters don’t serve the guests slime instead of the steak you had ordered.
Dreaming of someone else’s wedding holds special meaning.
If you are an observer in a dream, rather than the one getting married, it could be connected to some situation in your life where you have taken a step back and are not taking a leading or active role.
This is usually related to an issue or situation that does not involve you but is causing you some anxiety, or which is playing on your mind. This could be a friend or family member’s problem, or something out of your control at work.
You can understand why feelings of worrying about problems you can’t control might be represented this way. While you aren’t necessarily the one the wedding is about, you are still sitting on the sidelines and participating.
Dreaming about someone else getting married can also have another meaning. It could be a way for your subconscious to tell you that you are not taking an active enough role in certain areas of your life, which would be required to reach a particular goal.
You need to try and understand if this is possibly the meaning, take note of where you could improve and where you could become more involved, and then make a commitment. Use this to motivate you to better yourself and your circumstances, in whatever field it might be.
Our subconscious is so great at sifting through emotions and then letting us know where we can improve, and what is expected of us to approve. We just have to be open to listening, and sometimes this can only be done through interpreting dreams and their meanings!
Is Seeing Marriage In A Dream Good Or Bad?
Seeing marriage in a dream is usually good. However, you do need to pay attention to your emotions in the dream. If they are negative emotions, it could indicate that the dream has a bad meaning.
Most marriage dreams bring good news or encourage good behavior. These dreams usually indicate important events that might be occurring soon in your life, and it could be a signal for you to make some positive changes.
As with all dreams, there can be both positive and negative meanings. Here are some examples of each when it comes to dreaming of someone getting married.
Improving love life – A dream of marriage could be a good sign that your love life is about to improve. If you are alone and are looking for a relationship, this might be a sign indicating that you will find someone soon.
You desire marriage – This is a simple meaning but can be true. You dream of someone getting married because you yourself want to get married. If it is something you think about often, you are bound to dream of it.
New opportunities – Dreaming of marriage could be a sign that new opportunities are up ahead. If marriage is definitely not on your mind at this present time, there is a good chance that this is what the dream might mean.
Someone close to you is getting married – This is also a fairly obvious scenario. If someone near you is getting married, and especially if you are involved in the wedding, it might just show up in your dreams.
Doubts about your future spouse – You might not admit it to yourself, but these dreams could be an indication that you have doubts about your future spouse, and whether or not they are right for you.
The dream could be a way of asking whether or not you are comfortable marrying this person, and could get you to face the fears that you might not be conscious of when awake, or which you choose to ignore.
Unsatisfied with your marriage – A dream of a wedding might signify that you are not satisfied with your own marriage. Your spouse might be neglecting you or there is something not sitting right. This dream encourages you to work on these problems and see whether you can resolve them.
You fear always being alone – These dreams might highlight your fear that you will always be alone and never actually get married. It could be a sign of your loneliness, and how you desire to meet someone who you could marry.
Attending A Dream Wedding
In your dream, if you are sitting in the pews watching the bride and groom say their vows, you might wonder why you would have a dream where you aren’t the center of attention.
Dreaming of attending a wedding, and not being the bride or groom, can hold such important information, and you really have to be open to listening and deciphering what the meaning might hold.
This dream often depicts that we are not involved enough, or that we are not trying hard enough, in certain aspects. This could be related to work, your marriage, personal goals, sports, or even just socially.
Take note of the feeling that you are not the center of attention, or if you feel like you should be the one standing at the altar. It is your subconscious’ way of telling you that you need to put in more effort if you want to reap the rewards.
It really is quite amazing that our subconscious is able to work through our hard emotions, the ones that we often don’t deal with, and translate these into symbolic dreams, giving us advice and steps on how to better ourselves.
This isn’t some random dream, and it would do you a world of good to listen to the meaning behind the dream, take a more active role in the specific area of your life, and commit to sticking to it to achieve your goal and success.

Dreaming Of Marrying Someone You Don’t Want To Marry
Of all the marriage dreams possible, dreaming of marrying somewhere you would never want to marry can be super strange. It could be marrying your best friend, or marrying someone who you just cannot stand.
There are two meanings a dream like this could have. It could just be that you and this person have partnered up on something at work or somewhere else, and the marriage is just your mind’s way of working through this partnership.
If you haven’t partnered up with this person in a certain scenario, it could be that the specific person you are marrying symbolizes something that they represent to you. Think hard about what this person means to you, and how you see them.
For example, if you dream of marrying the person who really enjoys their life and is socially active, it might be your subconscious’ way of telling you that you need to relax a little more and enjoy time outside of work and other stresses.
This dream does take a little more work and thought, and you might not want to think hard about why you have married your cubicle partner at work, as it could just make you feel incredibly awkward, but it is definitely worth the extra thought.
You might just find the thing that you have been missing, and by following your dreams advice, you could be happier!
Dreaming Of A Wedding When You Are Getting Married
If you are planning a wedding and end up dreaming about it, it might be a bit frustrating!
Planning a wedding is definitely not for the weak, and it can be an extremely stressful process. You might just want to forget about these stresses for a night – only to dream about them.
While it is easy to just put these dreams down to the wedding consuming your every waking, and sleeping minute, don’t just ignore them completely. These dreams, whether they are peaceful or stressful, are a way for you to work through the different stresses you have.
They might also help you to resolve any existing issues you have before starting with the new chapter of your life.
Pay attention to what is happening in these dreams. If you dream about being late for your own wedding, it could mean that you are worried about certain deadlines you are dealing with.
Dreaming of marrying an ex, and not your fiancé could mean that you have some unresolved issues that need tending to before you make a big commitment.
If there are problems with your wedding dress in your dream, it might mean that there is something with yourself that you are not happy with. This will take a little more introspection, but you really should pay attention to this to try and make yourself feel better before the big day.
These dreams are a good indication of what might be stressing you out the most, even if you aren’t aware of these stresses when you are awake. Use these dreams to work through these stresses to ensure your actual wedding day is absolutely perfect!
Dreaming Of A Proposal
Taking a step back before the wedding, you might end up dreaming of a proposal first. It might be a small proposal on a beach or a big mob proposal that is probably your worst nightmare!
Dreams of getting married symbolize commitment, and a big commitment at that. Dreaming about a proposal also signifies commitment, but just not at the level that marriage calls for quite yet.
A proposal dream could mean that you are ready to commit to something, but you are still figuring out exactly what that might be, and whether it is being taken in the direction you were hoping for.
These dreams are really important, it could cause you to take a step back and think about different decisions you are making in your life, and to think whether you are rushing into these decisions.
Being ready to commit does not mean that you have to rush into committing to the first person, job opportunity or situation that comes up, and the dream might be trying to tell you to slow down.
If you feel as though you are ready to commit, while that is great, it does not mean you have to commit right now.
So if you are having dreams of proposals, you might want to slow things down and evaluate whether or not the commitments you are making are right for you, and if you want to make any changes before it is too late.
What does dreaming of canceling a wedding mean?
Dreaming of canceling a wedding could actually be a bad sign. It could indicate towards some mistakes that you have made, or point towards bad behavior you have shown that could lead to problems.
If you are actually planning a wedding and dream of canceling it, it might be a sign to evaluate the situation and find out whether or not the stress is all worth it, and whether it is the direction you do want to be heading in.
What does it mean if I remarry my current spouse?
If you remarry your current spouse in your dream, it could be a good push to start working on rebuilding your relationship and your trust with your partner.
You two might have distanced from each other, and your subconscious picks up that you need to work on your relationship to stop it from falling apart.
Often in these dreams, there is a feeling of renewal and starting afresh, and this feeling alone might be all you need to put the extra effort into your relationship, and hopefully getting your partner to do the same.
Take note of these dreams, your subconscious is great at picking up on warning signs that we can be completely oblivious to, and then giving us the tools to work on the issues to better the situation.
Dreaming Of Someone Getting Married
There are many different ways you can dream of marriage. It could be someone else getting married, you sitting in the pews watching a wedding, you actually getting married, whether it be to your partner or someone you would never dream of marrying, or even just a proposal.
All of these dreams hold meaning, and you should pay attention to what your dreams could be telling you, it often actually has nothing to do with weddings!
Try to decipher what the dreams could symbolize, and work towards fixing any issues that might be there, or continue on the same good path you have been following.
