Detailed dream meaning

Dreaming of a prom dress when you are of the age around going to prom can be an anticipation filled dream that is simply about wanting to have the prom experience. Perhaps you are planning for your own prom or wanting to go with someone special. Some dreams  about prom dresses will feature a girl seeing herself in the perfect dress or a boy seeing the girl he is interested in a dress that he deems good. Other dreams will be prom disasters. When you are 16 or so and you dream about prom usually these dreams will have a wishing or fearful aspect that really means nothing. Other times, dreams about prom dresses will mean much more.

For a woman the prom dress is often a symbol of her own youth. Depending on how her prom went – say if she went to prom and was prom queen then the dream once she is older is usually about needing to reconnect with her youth or feeling her age. For the woman that didn’t go to prom, this can be a desire to feel romantic or wanting romance in her own life. Prom dresses for men will usually have a sense of nostalgia when they went to prom with someone and seeing the prom dress that his date wore.

When planning for the future for our children often prom dresses will be dreamt about simply because they signify our own children aging. This dream can be one of regret that you have not planned enough or fear that you won’t see your own children age. Usually prom dress dreams for an adult though will be an omen to plan out for the future for your children. It is not a dream that comes with a dire reminder that you are going to pass and you need to act now, but rather it is a way that the psyche tells you that you aren’t getting any younger and you want to plan for the future for your children.

Having a prom dream at any age that is unseemly or scary is usually a dream about regret and not taking chances that you should have. You need to remember that the time to act has past and that you need to move on in the future. You cannot change yesterday and you need to stop dwelling on past mistakes.

Imaging prom as a current event when you are an adult is a good omen for relationships and fertility. It is said that when a man sees his grown wife in her prom dress in  dream that she is going to have a child. A woman that dreams of shopping for a prom dress for a daughter (especially if she has no daughter) is said to be pregnant or get pregnant soon.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Coming of age or having an important passage of time in your own life.
  • Watching your own children grow up.
  • Thinking about your own children – planning for them growing up.
  • Regret about the past.
  • Protecting your estate or creating a will.
  • Feeling older or nostalgia for the past.
  • Fertility and pregnancy.
