WEDDING or MARRIAGE DREAM?

It’s important to note which dream scene you are talking about.

WEDDING- You are preparing for or in the midst of a wedding ceremony

MARRIAGE- You are seeing an ongoing marriage relationship

A NOTE TO SINGLES

IF YOU’RE SINGLE, DON’T SKIP THIS!

An important note to singles. Your choices determine your destiny, and if you are single, the marriage choice is one of the most critical decisions of your life. Unfortunately, we move through the dating process without full objectivity and often with unresolved personal issues which we think will be resolved with marriage. “If only the guy on the white horse would ride in and swoop me up” we think, “then my story would reverse and I’d live a happily-ever-after life”.

When it comes to marriage, too many young women are the product of American media. Nothing wrong with the Cinderella stories, but perhaps our preschoolers need a larger perspective. Marriage, of course, is a fundamental and wondrous institution, but too often impatience leads us to the wrong spouse. We singles see couples in-love around every corner, and our anxiousness to enjoy such a relationship sometimes clouds our eyes.

If we do sense that this is not God’s best for us, why not, “Marry the man today, and change his ways tomorrow” as a song from Guys and Dolls suggests? And if we’ve already invested a lot into one relationship (even though we know it’s the wrong one), starting over seems like a great and dreadful risk.

If this is hitting a nerve for you, consider that your self-confidence may be lagging behind your actual matrimonial value! Are you compromising because deep down you question whether you’re good enough to lure the optimum marriage partner for you individually? Do you remain haunted by feeling of unworthiness? Why not accept yourself or address the things that hold you back!

I’m not saying singles should have a self-righteous attitude and live under the deception that we are perfect. What I am saying is that with God’s help, we shouldn’t have to compromise on our life-long partner. He or she should be the one designed for us, regardless of the circumstances. Could it be that we just don’t muster up enough faith to believe that the God who created the galaxy and has shown himself miraculously in your life already, could handle this too? Or would care to?

All that to say that if you dream you are in a wedding gown, the meaning, as with other dreams, may be metaphoric rather than literal!

WEDDINGS- WHAT THEY SYMBOLIZE

WEDDINGS IN DREAMS

If dream elements are symbolic, what would a wedding in a dream symbolize? Think past your emotions. Marriage is a merger, a partnership, a coming together of two. Although couples immediately come to mind, we’ve experienced without exception that weddings in dreams are commonly symbolic of two entities coming together, joining forces, or becoming more intimate. And engagements may refer to a waiting period.

Again, wedding dreams generally indicate a partnership, commitment at a new level, or increased intimacy with the bridegroom Jesus.

It could be a job, a business partnership, a business expansion, a new vendor, a ministry partnership . . . even going to college could be compared to partnering with a school. , or a new or increased intimacy with the creator.

partner-150x150Many have dreamed of loved ones getting married shortly before their death. In these dreams, the dreamer was not the focus of the dream. The focus is clearly a context clue. The loved one was to be reunited with a spouse or united “face to face with the Lord” through death.

When I first started getting prophetic training, I kept having dreams about being late for my wedding ceremony and pulling out my wrinkled bridal gown at the last minute. But I had been married for decades at that point! The dream was about my need for a higher level of spirituality. Keep in mind that this particular application is common; after all, the body of believers is said to be the bride of Christ.

The dreamer must look at the clues within the dream itself. Sometimes there are elements within a dream which simply indicate where, when, who, what, how, etc., and show the dreamer if this wedding dream is talking about a job, hobby, business, spiritual calling, or something else.

Ask yourself right up front, “What area of my life could this dream apply to?” If you are looking for work or considering expanding your business, you are most likely being encouraged to press on. If you’re applying for a scholarship, expect to get it. If your spiritual life needs some upgrading, watch for something or someone to show up in your life to serve as a catalyst.

Less likely is that it’s a prophesy of an upcoming literal wedding, but ALWAYS check the other possibilities first.

MARRIAGE- WHAT IT SYMBOLIZES

MARRIAGE IN DREAMS

Now let’s talk about the meaning of marriage in dreams. Not the wedding day, but the ongoing marriage. These dreams generally come to those of us who are married, although we may also dream we are getting married, event to someone other than our actual spouse.

Really, the same principle applies to marriage in dreams as it does to weddings. The dream is referencing a partnership with something or someone. Again, this could be a business partner, vendor, landlord etc. You name it, because, you aren’t in a sense, married to them (at least for this or the next season of your life).

HOW MIGHT GOD TELL ME I'M GETTING MARRIED?

WHAT KIND OF A DREAM WOULD PROPHESY A PROPOSAL?

It might be helpful to go at this question from the opposite angle. What symbolism can you think of that would express an actual upcoming wedding?

One college woman dreamed she had 2-3 beautiful children with brown eyes (hers were blue), and was going before a judge. (In reality, she had no children and was taking her boyfriend home to meet her parents.) She became engaged to the young man within months and so far, has had 2 brown-eyed children.

Another single dreamer dreamed she gave birth, and then met the fellow she would marry shortly thereafter.

One mother I know was tipped off that her son would marry a particular woman when the young woman conveyed a dream that she had had about a rocky relationship between the two women.

Someone else dreamed of a flawless engagement ring coming to her.

SUMMARY

Symbolism is the default spiritual dream language! We call that language parabolic after the parables in the Bible. Ask yourself about the possible symbolism first! Literal possibilities should be considered last since misapplying these dream themes could result in unnecessary heartbreak.

  1. On the morning of 1/1/2016, I awoke from a dream. I was getting ready for a wedding. It was soon to begin. I saw my wedding dress on the hanger. It was beautiful & the color was a rich brown. An acquaintance I had known some time ago was by my side helping me to get ready. She was a previous alcoholic whom God had delivered. I have also suffered some from this & God has delivered me as well. In my dream, I told her that I would not be drinking during this wedding (as I did during my natural one to my earthly husband). Any interpretations/discernment about this?

    • Per the color of the wedding dress, the dream prophesies that you are about to partner with something that is associated with humility and compassion. Brown is the pastoral color, by the way, so it sounds like you will be accepting a ministry opportunity. The acquaintance seems to provide a clue… that the dream is referring either to substance abuse deliverance or the meaning of her first name. Proper names can be quite revelatory.

  2. Thank you Lynmarie. I will watch and wait with anticipation on how & when this unfolds! God bless! ?

  3. Hi Lyn – In this dream I am getting married to a rather young guy and he looks Caucasian. I am already there at the church and thinking i will not need to do the bridal march. I am a bit unsure about this guy as i do not know him but wondering also a bit excited – what it will be like to be married to him. Then suddenly a guy appears with a gun in his hand and starts to shoot out bullets he is aiming at everyone else and I manage to get out somehow then I see myself in a bathroom hiding with this other guy.

  4. No I am not Caucasian
    The person in the bathroom is not the groom
    – Someone not known to me
    Also the groom at the start resembled a real estate agent we met earlier in the week in real life

    • I figured you weren’t. I will get back to you. Ending my day.

    • So the dream is speaking of a situation where you are considering committing, partnering with someone or something, hiring someone… but without the usual formalities. God wants you to know that connected with this situation is something holding power over others. Your reaction is to wash yourself from this partnership. Whether that’s the correct response may depend on the feeling you got in the dream from the guy in the bathroom with you in the dream…

    • …If he’s unfamiliar, a stranger, or doesn’t feel right- then you are correct to abort this. If he seems familiar or feels positive- go ahead.

  5. Since I did not know him I felt a bit uneasy being with him but I thought he seemed harmless so might as well be there with him in the bathroom than be exposed to the gunman outside.

  6. Dear Lyn, I am a black lady and married. but I have had dreams where I am flirting with Asian guys. I am sure God is saying something to me that I am yet to figure out. what does flirting in the dream represent? thanks for your time

    • I have had a number of these dreams. Let me explain how the symbolism works. The world is primarily populated by 3 races- white, black, Asian. God is faithful to be consistent in his parabolic language, so most dream elements are symbolic.

      When I dream of a group of Asians, God is speaking to me about another race (not white-me, not Asian). What’s left is generally black, (in my case, probably a church because I generally attend black churches.

      It would be the opposite for you. Asians= whites. Why men? It could have to do with authority. Perhaps this is about a coming job!

  7. Thank you Lyn I am sure that is the case

  8. Need help with interpreting dream please:

    In my dream it was black snakes in the yard I was scared to get out but I did and they went away and were harmless. I was walking up to new home. The house was beautiful. Built ins and so spacious. It was an older house. I walk into home, with a Caucasian man, we were arm and arm, we appear to be married. I was happier than I ever been.

    • Welcome! Sounds like you are black since you mentioned a white man. Going on that, here’s my take: You have been hurt in the past, but not this time. God is bringing you into a new and exciting situation and large opportunity. Has to do with an institution or situation which isn’t new. Within it, things will be provided. The Caucasian could depict Jesus, or could be more literal. Are you seeing this manifesting yet? What is it? A relationship, ministry, or job?

  9. Yes, I am black, divorced for 6years, a minister, 1st generation graduate, I got my Masters at age 40. I have made more money in the last year or two than I ever made in my life, so I thought I was ready to buy home, however nothing is going as plan. I thought this year was going to be the year, that a guy, a man of God, I’ve friends only, with this man of God, 5yrs, I thought, this year we moving out of friend zone, I had a dream, I was prophesied that we were, however; we have not spoken in 5 months, due to a minor disagreement.

    • Good to know. And congrats! Well this dream may be the first sign of something changing. Thinking of it makes me smile. Something good is coming! Just keep walking in faith and joy in the meantime. God wanted to encourage you. And remember, good news doesn’t always come from where we expect it. God loves to surprise us!

  10. Thank You, your response was very insightful.

  11. Thanks so much Lynmaire. Blessings to you, you have a light shining in you coming from our Heavenly Father. Thank for being a willing vessel. Once again your response was conformation.

  12. Dreamt that I saw my friends(male) car but the car was all worn out inside were 2 red hymn books and inside each hymn book were 2 missal books. As I tried to peak inside the car I saw my friend coming up with his 2 kids,he was wearing a peach t-shirt, I greeted his young child but she was too busy playing with something in her hands and my friend the spoke to me and said since we are friends we can do as I had suggested. He had with him his 2 children. I was so happy at his suggestion and ended up saying yes to him. Intially also in another dream I had been given the date and month which he is supposed to marry.

  13. Last night i dreamed that i was in this building, someone with a goatee was there, and was threatening me if i didnt leave, i got scared and i walked away somewheres else and i saw a girl come from around the corner, we both knew we were going to marry each other, and she came over and stood in front of me, if i recall i may have given her a ring, the scene changed and i was at some game with other people, it was like a different type of football, i was sitting with the people who was with one of the teams, and everyone rooted but people disappeared until it was me and 2 or 3 others left, then someone from our team scored and brought the ball over to where we were and had a smile then the dream ended.

  14. I had a dream last night where my wife and I were sleeping in separate beds. I then work up in the middle of the night and I touched her butt, and she asked what I was doing to which I said, “I don’t know, I guess it was an accident”. She then got up and I went back to bed, and she came back and started pilling dresses on top of me. In the background I hear her calling a hospital and telling a doctor was on the other line.

  15. I had a dream last night after another I had that I was carrying a toddler that looked like my wife, and that we were going from a restaurant/bar and back to a home that I shared with her. My wife and I are currently going though some though times.

  16. Hi L – I’ll take a shot at interpreting your dream. The meaning of the name of your friend might be the clue to unlocking this dream. Can you tell me what that is?

  17. Thanks in advance for your help, Can you help w/interpreting a wedding dream where the groom showed me a set of adjustable wedding rings ( do you think they have any significance?) as we were about to enter the chapel?

  18. Hi, I need help with my dream. I dreamt my wife and I were in our room that we no longer stay in. My friend came with his younger brother, the younger brother sat on one of the sofas and the older was in our bed half naked. My wife had her head on his chest and she was naked but had a towel around her body. I busy on the laptop then she said “these are the things I’m talking about” then I said to my friend “usually you don’t over” ,they all laughed at me. I told my wife “you are doing this in front of me don’t be mad if i do the same”. I returned to my laptop and saw a black widow spider and killed it. DREAM REPOSTED ON OPEN DISCUSSION PAGE.

  19. A friend of mine had a dream that she was married to the fiance of a friend of hers in reality. It seemed they were newly married. She was headed out of their home in the dream to visit her parents, but he kept trying to convince her to stay with him since they were a new couple. she insisted that she had to go visit her parents. On her way out, she dropped something by accident, and she asked him to please pick it up and take it back in the house as she left.

    • Hi Kikelomo! I think the dream is showing that your friend got involved in something that somewhat tries to hinder her constant relationship with God. Maybe this is something of recent? But now she’s breaking forth to have a fresh visitation from God. Does this make sense? This dream got me thinking. I’ll like to hear your feedback! God bless you!

  20. I dreamt i wore a wedding dress and that im about to get married (already married w/ 2kids) don’t know groom who fell in a pool so i told all that wedding will recommence after an hour. When wedding is about to start only few guests returned and a new guest joined. I don’t looked at that guest but i know who he is intimately and i just listened to his voice (my hs crush) i was hoping that he was there to stop the wedding. But since i am not looking at him, he did not do anything. As soon as guests arrived the wedding started. Woke up

    • Hi Oodz! This dream looks like a very good one to me! I see you’re starting a new phase and it’s like a covenant in your relationship with God. So there’s a period of refreshing that you’ll go through and the enemy may try to bring things of the past – condemnation, temptations, old habits, things, etc – to try to make you back off from the new chapter of your walk with God. However, you will overcome and experience God in a new way. Does this make sense to you? I’ll like to hear your feedback! God bless you

  21. I have been having repeated dreams about my sister who is already married. I saw her engaged in the previous two. Last night in the dream I was riding a bicycle on a dusty road alone and I heard someone call my name. With hesitance I turned and she was the one calling. She showed me a photo on some souvenir plates they had made for her marriage. It was beautiful. She her husband and two kids, a boy and a girl. I was surprised I missed their wedding. She said she had been trying to get to me but couldn’t.

    • Repeating dreams mean a lot. I think God’s showing you that instead of you trying to take your walk of faith alone, you should also be engage more of The Christian family – The body of Christ. Does this make sense to you?

      • Yes it makes sense. Thank you. What of the fact that I have seen her engaged or getting married again about three times even though she is already married.

        • If she’s already married in real life, but you dream about her getting engaged, the dream could be about you, or about something she’s getting connected to. If you can remember any of the dreams, you can post it and we’ll look into it. God bless you Sally!

          • Thank you John. In the first dream we were in a truck about to go somewhere and she showed me her finger with an engagement ring. She had just gotten engaged and though I was happy for her I seemed to remember that she was already married and wondered within me why she should be engaged with someone else.
            The second one was about my younger sister who is not married we were preparing for her traditional marriage and the third was my sister getting married and showing me the souvenirs they made for the wedding. The souvenirs were plates with their photos on it.

        • Hi Sally! All the dreams revolve around the same thing. Sister could refer to “Sister in Christ”, things closely related to you…like your church. The second referred to new things your church or friends in church that engaged in something new that got you wondering. The second one tells of something similar, they’re getting closer. The third one is like a conclusion. Does this make sense? I advice to get engaged in the new things God’s doing with them.

  22. Yes! So happy to hear that! Many thanks and God bless!

  23. Hi! There, I have repeatedly seeing this dream i am about to get married, wedding preparation is on friends are gathering,I see groom whom I have never thought on my mind but v unusual than what I had dreamed of,i see myself wearing red Hindu costume,i get shocked how come wedding preparations is on?i feel I never want this, who is this man, his family why everyone are here, i feel very sad within like a shattered dream and feeling of urgency to stop the wedding so I gather strength to take step and talk to everyone about it clear and dismiss the wedding in front everyone, everyone convinced and I suddenly feel so relieved and peace and I wake up, Would you please tell me what this dream means.

    • Rose. This looks like a warning dream. The one true God is letting you know that unless something changes, you will partner with or adhere to something that is harmful to you. Do you have any idea what this could be?
