What does a wedding mean in dreams?

1. The traditional interpretation

A dream about attending a wedding often hints at a new beginning or transition in your life. But as you know, a dream seldom has such a simple interpretation.

It could also be a kind of unity and commitment, not necessarily in a romantic sense, but in terms of personal growth or a project. A dream about getting married, by contrast, can symbolize commitment and dedication. It might indicate a desire for more security and stability, or it could reflect your feelings about a relationship. However, if you're already married, it might represent your thoughts about your marriage and your role within it. The common themes among these possible variations are generally positive and suggest personal growth and development.

A wedding can often be a complex and intriguing dream experience to get one's head around. To say for certain, I'd have to get an understanding of the dreamer's background and current life scenario.

Dreaming about attending a wedding points to things like the integration of your own disparate aspects, a Jungian concept known as individuation.

Some alternatives: It may symbolize the harmonious union of your conscious and unconscious mind, leading to a more balanced self. Alternatively, dreaming about getting married could be an expression of your anima or animus, the feminine or masculine aspects of your psyche, respectively. It might suggest a yearning for self-completion or a resolution of inner conflicts. If you're already wedded, it could reflect your unconscious thoughts about your marital relationship. The common themes among these possible variations, in essence, point towards a psychological transformation and self-realization.

If you're already married, it could reflect your soul's quest for a deeper spiritual connection within your existing relationship. The common themes among these dream variations are spiritual messages, guiding you towards self-realization and divine unity.
