DREAM DICTIONARY - Wedding :Weddings could of course be literal symbols. You may have just been talking about a wedding or thinking about an upcoming wedding. Perhaps you have been thinking through some good memories?
Marriage in dreams will often link to thoughts about taking the next step in a relationship. Maybe you want to start calling each other girlfriend and boyfriend? You might be thinking of moving in? Or just giving the other a key and allowing them to stay regularly? You might be thinking about them as a long term partner? Your dream need not necessarily show that you are more serious. Its just that questions like these are in your mind. It maybe just pressure from other people that has caused the dream.

- Is there a real life wedding that you have been thinking about?

EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : A dream where the dreamers wedding ring was missing linked to the dreamer feeling upset with her husband because he was not considering her feelings about some of his family members. The missing ring was symbolic of her thoughts that this was not a true marriage if he did not consider her feelings. The wedding ring then was a symbol of how well the marriage was going and linked to this wider more specific thought "He does not respect me enough and did not give me enough support over my concerns about two of his family members."
Example dream : A wedding dream linked to the dreamers conversation the day before with a group of women about weddings. This must have set her mind going as her dream probably links to her imagination going wild thinking about what could happen at a wedding.
Example dream : In one dream a wedding ceremony takes place on a cliff. The bride was the dreamers husbands ex girlfriend who was a complete sociopath intent on making the dreamers life a misery. The cliff hints at words like "impossible" and "risky". We might extend that into "an impossible and risky wedding" and "If she got married it would be an impossible marriage." The dream reminds me of the phrase "living life on the edge" and in this case "anyone who married her would be living life of the edge."
Example dream : A dream about a wedding dress that was "too short" was linked to the dreamers father who had criticised her short dress the day before. A short wedding dress was linking in with thoughts like "My father thinks that wearing short skirts is not a way to get a man to marry her." The dream linked in with thoughts like "girls with short skirts are sluts and no one will want to marry them." The dream was about the dreamer trying to fight against this type of attitude with her father.
Example dream : A dream about a wedding with no groom linked in with the dreamers relationship with a man who was married. It was symbolic of her realisation that the relationship was going nowhere - she would never get married as long as she was stuck with him. The wedding represented her wish to find a man who was seriously committed to her.
Example dream : A dream about a royal wedding linked to the dreamer thinking about his ex getting married.
Example dream : A dream about a wedding took place as the dreamer was thinking about her relationship.
