Congratulations this is a wonderful dream! My name is Flo and for the last two decades, I have spent my life researching dreams from a spiritual and psychological perspective.  during that time I have had many different experiences of dreaming various weddings. I know that when wedding appears in my dream this can be associated with planning ideas for the future especially in terms of your love life. Now, to see yourself in a wedding setting represents the unconscious mind. We all understand that a wedding is a union of two people in love. From a symbolic dream dictionary sense, this indicates that you will hold magical gifts in life. These gifts can potentially change your life for the better. This may be a clue to the area in your waking life which is under question.


In my view, if the person you marry is someone you don't know then perhaps you are seeking a nurturing relationship. It can also suggest that you have had an attitude of protecting yourself against others. A wedding in a dream is basically the union of two people. To see yourself getting married to another person in the dream indicates that you are in conflict with different aspects of an attitude problem towards somebody close. This can suggest that your own personality and approach to difficulties in waking life may need review.

For example, if you see a couple together getting married in the dream it is representative of the fundamental unit of life. To see a male and a female at the altar getting married is connected to spiritual embracement. In essence, these two people are celebrating their love for one another. In a symbolic view, the wedding dream can be associated with creative energy and an outpouring of more brighter happier future.

Seeing two people unite in a dream: To see two people that you know get married in a dream indicates that you have emotional barriers in life. Perhaps you find it difficult to overcome a painful situation. You should respond to a problem in a different mannerism.

The issue here is that if people see you marrying someone you know then this indicates you need to just let go of any emotions you've been harvesting in the past. This is the only way for you to move forward. To attend a marriage and to see two people unite that you do not know indicates, that baggage in life seems to feel heavier. Progress may become drained.
