Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

WEDDINGS : We associate lots of different emotions with weddings. We have that sense of urgency to get to the church on time and the hope that everything goes right. We have the feeling of the guests who come together in a sense of celebration. We have the feelings of the Bride and Groom who take a very serious step forward in committing themselves. Look for any situation that involves that same sense of commitment.

Our dream studies have shown that wedding dreams will appear after you have been thinking about commitments of any kind. One dreamer had a wedding dream when he made a commitment even though he did not want to. Another dreamer had the wedding dream when he had been feeling very determined about something.

Wedding dreams can link to relationships as well. A wedding dream appeared in one dreamer when she was thinking about making a serious commitment... but not marriage. So it appears that wedding dreams are more likely to appear when you are thinking about getting serious with someone. Another dream in our study happened when the dreamer had been having commitment issues. So it seems weddings happen in dreams when we are thinking about commitment in general.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Is there a real life wedding that you have been thinking about?
- Have you been thinking about your commitment to someone or their commitment to you?
- Has someone just made a really romantic gesture towards you?

KEY WORDS : Determined, commitments, serious relationship

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "making a serious commitment"
- "getting to a stage were we are getting serious"
- "he will never be able to commit"
- "commitment issues"
- "everyone made an effort"
- "my wedding plans"
- "I have committed to it even though I do not want to"
- "I am totally determined"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of the weddings in dreams?

Dreams use symbols to capture a sense of emotion. Weddings usually link to the kind of feelings that we associate with them in real life. They are important events where people come together. There is a sense of celebration. There are the plans and preparations and the rush and need to get there on time and need for everything to go just right. There is the sense of commitment and the decision to devote yourself to someone. Look for some situation which features those very same emotions.

Of course weddings maybe related to romance and love affairs. Its a symbol of commitment within a relationship and involves decisions about moving a relationship onto a more serious level. E.g.

"I face a similar dilemma as I did a couple of years ago. Should I seize the opportunity and ask him to make a serious commitment or should I let things just carry on as they are."[Dream Dictionary - Marriage proposal][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I am giving my relationship with my ex another go. I am not certain it will work out but I am going to give it a try. "[Dream Dictionary - Getting married yet groom is not there]

"so far my relationship with my boyfriend has been quite easy going but we seem to be getting to a stage where we need to make a commitment to each other."[Dream Dictionary - Wedding]

"I have just started to realise that I do really love my ex. Maybe I should make a move on him and explain my feelings. We have stayed friends."[Dream symbol - Wedding]

"I have been dating this guy on the Internet but I need to think seriously before actually meeting him. I think the whole Internet dating thing is a bit dangerous. He might turn out to be a total no hope."[Dream dictionary - Wedding]

"I have just found out a guy I like has got engaged"[Dream dictionary - watching wedding]

"My ex boyfriend had too many drug problems so there was no way I could make a serious commitment with him. Splitting up was for the best"[Dream symbol - leave wedding with best friend]

"well I was talking with about bumping into my ex yesterday and now I realise that its not to be. I should stick by my husband as the relationship is not that bad. The grass is not greener on the other side"[Dream dictionary - Wedding dress]

"I have found out this guy that I quite fancy actually likes me. But I am unsure about this because I have kid of gone off him"[Dream dictionary - getting married to former crush]

"I do not feel my boyfriend has commitment issues in the way that he used to have. But we are not about to get married"[Dream Dictionary - boyfriend is buying engagement ring]

Weddings are the most important day in your life. It symbolises an important decision that you are committing to. Look for any important commitment that you are thinking about. The dream maybe connected to that. E.g.

"I have been offered a job but I am not sure its right for me. I will have to make a decision soon "[Dream Dictionary - Wedding]

Weddings are about commitment and black weddings or black wedding dresses may suggest that you are having to commit to something that you do not want. That you perhaps know is necessary. E.g.

"I know I need this job and its not the kind of thing that I want to do but its necessary and I have just got to commit myself to it"[Dream symbol - black Wedding]

Weddings are very much an occasion. They symbolise how people come together in positive spirits. Look for some situation which features that same sense of celebration. E.g.

"My friend has just moved into a new home and we all rallied round and COMMITTED some time to help her with the decorations"[Dream Dictionary - wedding]

Of course a wedding in a dream may symbolise your own wedding plans or thoughts about a loved one's wedding. E.g.

"well my marriage preparations are not going as well as hoped. I didn't want some of my less desirable relatives to come but my mother forced me into it"[Dream Dictionary - Wedding]

A wedding is something that people wish to be absolutely perfect. But often things go wrong. Sometimes a wedding dream may capture that sense of things going wrong on a day. It maybe linked to the need to get to some event exactly on time. E.g.

"I woke up with terrible stomach upset. I had to get to the toilet. I just had to get there ON TIME."[Dream Dictionary - Wedding day]

Weddings can link to strong convictions of any kind. E.g.

"I just feel now that my brothers have left home that my father has started turning his attentions to me. I really like wearing my own clothes yet he keeps picking up on anything"[Dream Dictionary - short Wedding dress]
THE DREAM I was thinking about my classmate from 3rd grade (lets call him Matt) who was nice to me and I had a crush over him, I thought that only if I would have confessed my feelings to him then things would be different in between us both (like who knows we might be together right now). And then through casting a magical spell I return to the time when we were classmates. I am back in school (but I am my present age), it was like visiting my own self (the little girl that I was then). I tell myself that I need to tell him what I feel or I might regret it later on. So that little me does as said. Then again back to present day its a reunion party and there I find each and every classmate of mine, I ask an old classmate about Matt and he says that, " he too is coming Natasha, we all know that there is something going on between you to. At least thats what I was told by Matt". Then I meet Matt at the entrance gate of our school, he is delighted to see me and we both hug and kiss in front of everyone. Then we walk in the premises of the school remembering the good old days when we were kids and he is surprised by my memory about each and every thing that I remember about him. He is now a successful businessman. Then we again kiss passionately. Then he says that we need to be together. Next I saw that we are in a live in and I ask him that why don't we get married? He answers, " why so soon, lets enjoy our lives". But because in my dream I desperately wanted to have a baby with him so I make him drunk and then I was in a foreign local living alone in an apartment with my little kid and I saw my present best friend visiting me there and proposing me to get married to him, he was even ready to accept me with my kid (the one I had with Matt).

THE REALITY The dreamer had been in love with her former crush years before but had not been thinking about him. It is fair to assume then that his appearance in the dream is entirely symbolic. The dreamer was now deeply in love with another man. She was now facing the same dilemma as she was then. Should she allow time to pass and opportunities to slip away in the same way that she did then.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "Perhaps now is the time to act. I need to seize the situation and tell my crush just how I feel about him. Otherwise that opportunity may simply dissapear in the same way it did with my former crush"

DREAM ANALYSIS Often in life we face a new situation but the problems are the same. We face a similar situation as we maybe did a couple of years ago. In this case the dreamer is facing a similar dilemma as she did a couple of years before. She let opportunities slip away. This dream is basically saying that "this situation is like your crush with Matt".

This dream then probably captures the dreamers feelings about the various options available to her. I know many people would think such a dream captures her feelings and wishes to take a strong and decisive option. Yet in truth such dreams simply reveal that we face a difficult decision which maybe we are very unsure about.

PROPOSAL : "take a serious step forward in the relationship and make a commitment"
