Marriage in Dreams

Marriage in dreams is the ultimate sign of commitment; two people, being bounded by an eternal passion and connection, for one another. This dream could mean that it’s time for you to take that extra leap forward, and become bounded with your significant other. It’s time to take that person you care about, and spend the rest of your life with them.

If not towards a significant other, the idea of commitment applies to many aspects of one’s life. For instance, it could be a certain commitment towards friends, family, or even work. Marriage can symbolize the need for you to take the initiative to do something you care about. Maybe an unfinished project? or a promise you made to someone that you need to fulfill?

Whatever the case is, make sure you don’t leave it undone. This is a sign for you to take care of something that means a lot to you, and make sure you get it completed.

  1. I had a dream that I was high up in the church looking down and the bride was the late Princess Diana as she walked down the aisle and I kept thinking in the dream how beautiful her dress was and how long the train was…I kept seeing the drum from thus same part over and over….

  2. I had a dream that I married a women that I have never seen before and she was pregnant with our child. She had brown hair and blue eyes. In my dream I knew I didn’t know her and she didn’t know me but we embraced each other as if we did. I love her and she loves me. I didn’t notice at first but she was using sign language as she was talking to me. I didn’t know sign language but I understood her. I really in joyed this dream. Does anyone know what it means?

  3. I had a dream I married my best friend of 20 years shot straight up out of bed could hardly breath i woke up crying went back to sleep had the same dream 2 more times

    1. Hi! Last night I saw a dream that iam getting married to my boyfriend. I saw that iam very happy taking pictures with him in my Bride clothes. After that I saw I went home in my Bride clothes and my boyfriend went at his home.. than he message me “I need u plz come home soon”

  4. My friend dreamt of me getting married but i was crying, i was crying because my vial was torn and the dress was ugly but my Dad came and closed my vial whereas i have a child already. After the wedding i was still crying non-stop then i heard the bridesmaids have all passed away due to a car accident.

  5. Hi,
    I had a really strange dream. It wasn’t supposed to be my wedding day but the couples who’s it was was cancelled so my husband to be moved our date forward (the man I was marrying in my dream is someone I do not recognise). He goes off to collect some boxes and I stand alone, testing some food, I can hear my guests talking and it annoys me as they gossip. A guest comes over to me and says something (I can’t remember) but I throw the food on the floor and storm off.

    I leave the garden part of the venue and go into the building which has a layout like my school. Someone had been sabotaging the food and already destroyed the starter and main. It was all dark with just one light as I went down the corridor. I pushed one of the doors and I saw someone come out of the room where the cake was kept. I caught and restrained him (I recognised this person as someone from school). A teacher came and I handed him over and went to look at the cake.

    The tap was running in the room so I turned it off, I couldn’t see where the cake was. Another teacher came in and gave me a smile (he seemed to be takin the role of a chef). I went to leave but then a class came in and I sat down with them and did science revision, learning about random things about ‘bees knees’ and my science teacher was being unusually jokey.

    It’s a bit confusing as most of my exams are over an I’ve finished science. I’m also not in love and not a typical girly girl, so to be in a dress was weird. I also changed age, when I was with my man I was his age (about 20ish) and when I walked away I changed to my age now (16). Haven’t dreamt in ages either.
    Would be good if someone could help analyse it cause all I can think of is that I need to have stronger commitment to school?


  6. I had a dream that I married my boss’s son and had trippliets. I do not see him in that light. Woke up startled then fell asleep and l had another dream that I was having sex with my ex-boyfriend (different guy). We were not sexually active. What does this mean.

  7. Last night, I dreamed that I got engaged to my younger brother, and we were about to get married. My parents were disapproving but somehow let the whole thing slide and the marriage go on. However, in the end, the wedding ceremony fell through and I remember feeling sad but I didn’t cry. What does it mean?

  8. I had a dream that I was getting married to a perfect stranger. Someone whom I had never met. He was introduced as being of Chinese descent, by my family. But I never had seen his face.

    In the dream I, eventually, found out that my family was paid to marry me off to this person. I remember standing in a flowing wedding dress on what seemed like a very big, yet dark, mansion-like staircase and then the scenes changed.

    I was then sitting in a chair in a strange room facing my real-life uncle and feeling very afraid of marrying someone that I did not know. I can also recall hearing my mother’s voice encouraging me to go on with it. She was telling me that I would be fine and on how I would not have to worry about money. (As if that was to make it OK.)

    The last thing that I remember, before waking, was looking fearfully at my uncle who was facing me and I recall asking him if he could help me with my make-up. And he agreed. Then I woke.

  9. My mom had a dream I was marrying someone that I’ve only met once. And he’s an NHL player. But we did have a connection. Any significance?

  10. I had a dream that my sister was getting married to her boyfriends brother, who is already married. In the dream, the brother had separated from his previous wife(who is not his wife in real life). My sisters’ sister in law(sister to her boyfriend and the brother she married) threw a party and was not upset that my sister married the brother she was not dating. Her boyfriend was nowhere to be found in this dream along with his older brother. I also dreamt that they’re mom couldn’t cook chicken when she is a great cook in real life.

  11. I had a dream that I married a close friend (male) who passed away 14 months ago and it was my best friends husband. In this dream I wept on the passing of this best friend (female)who is alive and well. (Me and my children are very close to these individuals and respected their marriage very highly and his death was a shock as he was so young and it was sudden).. I pray everyday for this person and curious what the interpretation is.

The next day morning a guy said that we are getting married that day in front of my relative which everyone was in shock as I am still single. The wedding preparation has been done and a wedding dress was given to me by my friend and she told that the wedding dress was bought by myself. What does all this mean?

  19. I had a dream where a guy I like let me know he was going to propose to me (we are not dating in real life). He explained how he was going to do it so I knew the plan. However, things kept getting in the way of the plan being fulfilled. Timing wasn’t good, the car didn’t come at the right time, the restaurant messed something up. So we had multiple tries at this proposal. When I finally felt like I was in control of “no more false starts” I tried texting him to say that I would be there at 7:00 however, the keypad kept changing and the text wouldn’t come out right. This is when I woke up.

  20. I dreamt I was getting married. At first the guy didnt really wanna marry me (we both really liked each other). But he agreed to marry me and he proposed. He just asked to marry me nothing special. What’s this mean?

  21. I had a dream I was getting married where I was wearing all white. There was no one around me, I was alone, and I was waiting for the groom to show up. But, he never did. Then I step outside of the marriage area and I find his brother standing there, and he holds my hand.

  22. I dreamed this mysterious man that was 6″7′ with long red hair and pale blue eyes took me away from this world and my family to go to a different world. He says that I belong to him and I will marry him. And I agreed. My wedding dress was on fire and it didn’t burn me and his hair was on fire and it didn’t bother him.

  23. HI!

    I keep on having the same kind of dream about me getting married every night. I don’t know why but I’m really curious to why I keep on having the same kind of dream. I keep on having the dream but it’s always in a different place with a different person that I’m going to marry and, most of the time I don’t know who I am marrying to. But I was always happy. this kind of dream been going on for a while now. I wanted to ask for some opinion on this.

  24. I had a dream I married a girl. In real life, this girl and I are good friends. We talk every day, we see each other in person a couple days a week, and I strongly care about her as a friend and she knows I do.

    She has a boyfriend though. I told her about the dream and she didn’t say anything , except that she loves the long tailed dressed (she was wearing one on the dream and I told her that). I didn’t know she liked those type dresses before.

    In person, we hug a lot and rest on each other. Is there any meaning to this dream with this girl? I deeply care for her, but she knows I’m not into creating drama and destroying relationships.

  25. I had a dream that I was getting married in this beautiful church like one in Italy and I had a beautiful dress but I am single , what is the meaning of it . I want to get married someday but not sure what this means

  26. I had a dream about me getting married and trying to get moved out of my house on the same day. It was such a stressful day. I was trying to get my laundry done, and show my son how to power wash the bavk yard and finish cleaning out the house. Then I realize I only have 30 min to get to the wedding site and I still need to shower. Somehow I make it to the place where I’m going to get married, but I have to walk threw a corn field to get to it and as I’m walking threw I pass hundreds of brides standing in formation. When I finally make it to the clearing in the center I find a beautiful house all set up for my big day. The I hear the priest come in a rush and he said “shit I’m late” and I laughed because first to hear the preast curse but that I was perfectly on time. As my son walks me down the aisle I see there’s no groom and then my wedding becomes a show, but a funny show . Not sure what this means? Any idea?

  27. I had a dream that I was marrying my ex after apparently hiding our relationship for a few months from everyone, we got married in a run down old building that was similar to a church. The size of the ring kept appearing at it was quite large and even tho it looked like it wouldn’t ever fit because it was hilariously big, it actually fit. It had writing on it but I don’t remember what it read. After the wedding I felt very uncertain and I was considering breaking it off completely. As much as I wanted to leave, I didn’t do it

  28. I had a dream I considered getting married to my unborn child’s father. I have been telling him NO to his marriage advances all this this year. My daughter’s father and I were mostly telephone friends. We live 2 hours away and when I got a chance I visted him. 3 years later out of the blue I end up pregnant. I am 7 months pregnant now. We never really dated. And he just gets on my nerves and says the most meanest/inconsiderate things. but then will ask me about marriage. What the heck is wrong with him? I need to know why in my dream I considered his marriage proposal, and why at the reception I could not see his face on the cakes ( it was a I LOve Lucy cake- we had taken a picture of us feeding each other a piece of cake and wanted the two pictures on the two cakes.) HELP kinda scary..

  29. Hi I had a dream of getting married with a man I do not know. There was a photo album on our wedding day and he’s got a nickname of JJ. That on, I knew in my dream that I was happy and fulfilled. After, I had awaken up myself and had gotten back to my sleep and continued my dream. Then I was with the guy again, but this time, I felt like I had an amnesia. I don’t remember who he was and how we met. Every detail about him, I forgot. Do you know what is the possible meaning of my dream?

  30. I’m 16 and have been with my boyfriend for a year now, it’s quite serious and we’re very happy! I dreamt 2 nights ago of our wedding in quite a lot of detail (who was there, what we wore, the colour scheme etc) and it was a nice dream that ended In us marrying. Last night I dreamt and it was a year on from our wedding an I was pregnant I was watching my (husband) play rugby (which he plays now) what does this mean at just 16 years old?

  31. I keep having a recrring dream about getting married to someone that I don’t know, usually I learn about him on the day of the wedding and his face is usually not revealed or it’s someone that I’ve never seen before ( It’s always someone different). The wedding is very big and all of the guests are happy but I’m always disoriented and do not know much about who I am getting married to or about the wedding. I’m very curious as to what this means, please help.

  32. I had a dream that I was getting married to my boyfriend other for almost 7 years. The guest list was very small and we didn’t have a bridal party. My father and my mother (deceased) was there as well. I held up the ceremony as i was trying to tell my boyfriend that i was not ready to marry him. When I finally got a chance to tell him he was very disappointed. I tried to ask my moter for advice on the situation but before he could answer she disappeared. In the dream my father who is still living in real life said that God took her, and that he was only allowed to come back for the wedding. Then, I decided to go ahead and get married. I know this dream could have several intetpretations and i have idea of what this dream may mean, but I figured I’d post my dream to see if others’ interpretations match my own.

    Thanks :-)

  34. I had a dream last night that I was getting ready for my wedding and I started asking my family if I was making the right diecision and they all said that I was. And right as I was about to walk down the isle I had realized that I was in love with someone else. And ever since that dream I have had doubts on ever wanting to get married with the fear of not being in love with the right person

  35. I dreamt I was to marry a man who was older and I felt a lot of respect for him and love but felt it was my duty to Marry him,I woke up and fell back asleep and the dream continued

  36. Hi, I had a dream last night that I got married. I am only 15, almost 16. I thought it was the strangest thing! I don’t know the guy, he didn’t not look like anyone I knew! I mean, in my dream I loved him a lot, I was crying while going up the isle. He looked like Prince Charming. He was perfect. I have been watching “Say yes to the dress” A lot. Could that have to do with it? However, my ex just expressed his feelings to me the other day, about how he misses me, and wants me to consider getting back with him. I didn’t talk to him for a full day after he told me this. It’s so crazy. I am so confused! Here’s what my dress looked like in my dream BTW, haha! I don’t want a dress like this in real life, but it looked nice in my dream! That’s another thing, everything in the dream wasn’t what I wanted in real life! The wedding was outside, by a lake, and none of my freinds were there, just a small amount of family. I want a big wedding, inside. It’s so weird.

  37. Okay, so for the past couple months I’ve been having having recurring dreams of marriage. I’m nineteen and not looking for a relationship, but I keep having these dreams. The most recent one happened last night and as it turned out, my mother told me she had the same exact dream as me when I called to tell her about it. The dream started out with me announcing my engagement to friends and family, including my deceased Aunt, who died at the same age I’m at now, and old family friends that I haven’t seen in years. We celebrated and drank in this beautiful golden hall with brights crystal lights and a magnificent chandelier hanging from the domed ceiling. It was night out, but people were still flooding in. Then my phone rings and that’s where the dream begins to go down hill. The flowers I ordered are out of stock, mysteriously disappearing from the shop. I don’t have a caterer anymore and the dress I bought was altered to the point where I couldn’t where it. We lost the chapel I was supposed to get married in and didn’t have any of the paperwork we apparently needed to get married. I was running around like crazy, looking for places to get married last minute, searching for a caterer, and a thousand other things. I had only a day left before the wedding and my Aunt kept calling asking if it was ready yet so she could bring my cousins over to the chapel. Completely out of the blue, I call my ex and tell him that he’s invited along with his girlfriend, even though in real life I’ve cut contact with both of them. Finally, the dream winds down, a bunch of friends recommend having the reception in the park of my home town and going to the court houses downtown to get married. I agreed to both, finally get home after fixing everything and then my fiancee tells me he no longer wants to get married, but he still wants to live with me. My mother’s dream was similar in the way that everything went wrong and that my dead grand parents were at the announcement of my engagement instead of her deceased sister. Besides that, the dreams differed in detail and the ending. What does this mean? I’m so confused….

  38. I dreamt that I knew I was getting married, but I never actually saw myself in a wedding dress nor getting married, then suddenly in my dream i was already married and with my husband. Then in my dream I’m suddenly at somebody else’s wedding but i never see the bride or the wedding happen.

  39. I had a dream about a random couple I don’t know who they are they had a son but, think what had happened they were separated then I think the husband came back to see his child then he started falling in love with woman again he was complimenting her and he took he out to dinner and he was talking to friend on how amazing she looked.anyway they were on a beach the son was there but I kinda saw this part of the dream in his perspective behind the sand castle he was building then I think the mum was playing hard to get but she eventually gave in and they got back together. Have no idea what this dream means I mean i don’t think it’s a reflection of my life because my parents are together, I am kinda in love with some at the moment but he doesn’t really know yet I’m not rushing into things, I’m still young I’m only 16 so marriage and the son aspect of this dream I don’t really understand how this came about.

  40. Hi. Can you please explain my dream? Though I really didn’t get married, just engaged.

    I dreamed that I was gonna be arranged marriage to a total stranger and I was panicking because I only felt the familiarity between us but not that strong emotion called love. Then I escaped just before the wedding because I can’t accept it and then this old guy just came out of nowhere and gave me positive reasons why I should go, and I DID go, but I was still feeling doubtful.

    When I went there and met the groom (whose face I can’t see), I asked him why he wanted to get married and told me that he also didn’t know, and then I told him, ‘why don’t we just run away from this fiasco?’ and that’s what we did.

    After all that, he decided to travel the world, and I went with him because that was also my dream then I woke up. I don’t understand it. Can you please explain it?

  41. So I had this dream twice already and it the same thing both times. In this dream I’m like picking out the cake the dress and basically everything. Everything is going really good. But I never really get to see his face. But right before I wake up I finally we his face. But before that I only know his name just not his face. And by the way I am in 6th grade and school is almost over so I’m basically in 7th grade. And I don’t really want to get married. That is why I wanna know what this dream means.
    Plz help. =)

  44. I had a dream that i was getting ready to be married, standing in my current home making beeswax candles to give out as favors and use as centre pieces. So then as I was doing that I got in a panic because I forgot who I was supposed to marry. In the dream I kept trying to think of who it was supposed to be but it was no the right person. I ran to this big building and talked to someone who would tell everyone that they needed to leave, then I wandered through where the people were gathered in a daze, got upset and started running through all these wierd halls and rooms that looked abandoned….I don’t remember anything after that.

  45. I had a dream where I was getting married to a person I only met the day before. I was out with friends and had been drinking. I didn’t even remember what he looked like. But in my dream we were getting married. And I was thinking and feeling I don’t even know u I don’t want to get married. But still went ahead with it. And it was just weird because the next day he had called me and asked me if I wanted to meet up w him at a fair. (Remember no clue what he looked like) so when I got to the fair I started looking for the image I dreamt of and found him lol. We are good friends but still this dream has been haunting me for 2 years. Any ideas?

  46. I had a dream I got married inside of a church but when the music started playing I stopped walking suddenly then this guy was telling me that I have a great guy don’t be nervous then one of my bridesmaid started to push me and the guy told her not to push me then suddenly my groom came and walked me to the alter after he made me smile and let our guest know I was okay
