Wedding Dream Meanings

Dream Meaning: From 33 Different Sources

wedding image


General Meaning: A covenant ritual whereby two become one.

Positive: The best illustration we have of this is the wedding of Christ to His bride.

The wedding ceremony is in fact a covenant ritual act.

• In the Old Testament when two people entered into a blood covenant, they would do various acts.

• Firstly they would cut their hands and join blood. Then they would rub ash into the wound so that it would leave a scar. They would also exchange their belts, representing their strengths.

• The scar was a public sign of their covenant, much like the wedding ring is.

The mixing of blood is symbolic of the sexual act of marriage.

• The exchange of belts in marriage is the joining of two lives. Where your strengths become one.

• When the blood covenant was over, the two of them had all things in common. Neither considered what they had as their own.

• When you realize that this is also a picture of our relationship with Jesus it brings you to a new realization of who you are in Christ.

• If you dream of being married, the Lord is reminding you that you are in blood covenant with Him! • All He has is yours and all you have is also His. He is asking you to give your life to Him completely and to also take hold of His completely.

• Every physical, psychological and spiritual blessing that Jesus has, is available to you through this covenant.

• For more on blood covenant, look at the love of David and Jonathan in 1 Sam 18:3 • Divorce • When you came to the Lord, you divorced your old life and married into His.

If you dream that you are divorcing someone that represents the flesh in your life, this means that you are finally letting go of your old life to be joined to Christ.

Negative: To dream that you are getting divorced from someone that represents the Lord in your dreams means that you have separated yourself from the blessing of God.

• Israel lost this blessing because they turned their backs on the Lord and followed idols.

Universal Landscape: The beginning of the process of integration.

Dreaming Lens: Were you the bride, the groom, or a witness? Did you know the couple? Were you happy or opposed to the union? Were you late, early, intoxicated, or surprised at the altar? Did you arrive on the wrong date? Were you marrying someone you know or don’t know? Was someone else marrying the person you desire?

Personal Focus: A wedding is a ritualistic joining of two life paths that choose to merge. The theme being explored with this image is integration on a major scale. The Dreaming Lens will inform you of what areas of life are coming together and whether the process is going well or not. The first area of exploration should be with the individuals who are getting married. If one of them is yourself, then the wedding represents incorporating a Character Aspect into your personality with a sense of commitment and permanence. If you are watching two other people, the process is more about finding a resource within yourself by joining together two distinct ways of being.

A wedding dream represents integration of those desired qualities within ourselves that could lead to a level of wholeness that might allow us to attract the partner of our heart’s desire. The first step to this is to create a loving union with all aspects of our selves, inside and out. This development is not always smooth sailing. The level of chaos in the dream may be reflecting unconscious responses to changes that are occurring in your waking life.

There may be some literal meaning to be explored if you are approaching a wedding in your waking life at the time of your dream. If this is the case, use the Dreaming Lens to inform you of your deeper emotional responses being stimulated by this huge event.


To attend a wedding in your dream, you will speedily find that there is approaching you an occasion which will cause you bitterness and delayed success.

For a young woman to dream that her wedding is a secret is decidedly unfavorable to character. It imports her probable downfall.

If she contracts a worldly, or approved marriage, signifies she will rise in the estimation of those about her, and anticipated promises and joys will not be withheld.

If she thinks in her dream that there are parental objections, she will find that her engagement will create dissatisfaction among her relatives.

For her to dream her lover weds another, foretells that she will be distressed with needless fears, as her lover will faithfully carry out his promises.

For a person to dream of being wedded, is a sad augury, as death will only be eluded by a miracle.

If the wedding is a gay one and there are no ashen, pale-faced or black-robed ministers enjoining solemn vows, the reverses may be expected.

For a young woman to dream that she sees some one at her wedding dressed in mourning, denotes she will only have unhappiness in her married life.

If at another’s wedding, she will be grieved over the unfavorable fortune of some relative or friend. She may experience displeasure or illness where she expected happiness and health.

The pleasure trips of others or her own, after this dream, may be greatly disturbed by unpleasant intrusions or surprises.

Dreaming of your own wedding signifies the desire to unify criteria, obtain concessions or professional alliances, and find allies to support projects. It also indicates the search for inner harmony, communication with the inner self, and the union of two formerly conflicting aspects of your personality. Wedding dreams are recurring for couples who are about to get married. In fact, some studies indicate that forty percent of all oneiric activity during the prenuptial period contains references—either direct or indirect—to the marriage ceremony, to the future spouse, and to marriage in general.

It is often common to dream of disasters occurring in the ceremonies, scenes of sexual rejection, images of infidelity, etc. But these prenuptial dreams should not be cause of alarm because, for example, dreaming of a sexual adventure can reveal fear of abandonment; and being naked at the wedding, fear of performing badly.

Not all old dream books agree on the interpretation of this symbol. Usually, it is seen as a good omen and as a premonition of a future marriage. However, to attend someone else’s wedding is a prediction of damage, loss, and infidelity.


To dream of a wedding indicates your life is about to change.

An aspect of your waking life is ending, but another is about to begin. In many cases, you may feel negatively about the wedding you see in your dreams. This is typically meant to bring to mind a fear or anxiety from your waking life. You may have some feelings of sorrow, or a loved one may soon pass. Conversely, it may indicate a fear of commitment. Consider your relationships; are you getting ready to take one to the ‘next level?’ Are you scared to do so? If you dream of remarrying your husband or wife symbolizes your strong love and faith to each other. Marriage has suited you well. Your marriage may be about to change as well. Are you considering starting a family? If you are dreaming of planning your wedding, but have never met your future spouse, it is an indication that you have found harmony and balance between your feminine and masculine sides. Conversely, you may be struggling from a lack of balance between your more instinctive side and your softer emotional nature..


A commitment, agreement, or promise anywhere in your life (romantic or otherwise).

A wedding, party, family gathering, or other event (real or imagined).

A milestone in a romantic relationship.

The idea of teamwork, joining two things together, or merging two separate processes.

Participating in someone else’s wedding might represent an actual wedding or other event, or your feelings about the couple’s real-life relationship.

You getting married can represent: the idea of a commitment or new beginning (romantic or otherwise); being in a marriage or other commitment with someone (or an imagined version of that); feeling “put on the spot” or the center of attention; the closeness you have (or had) in a certain relationship.

Consider also the context, participants, and your feelings.

If your biological time clock is ticking away and you are anxious to get married, this dream may be a form of wish-fulfillment.
