Whether you’ve been dreaming about a wedding dress, or a mystery groom at the altar, the most important thing you can do is figure out where the emotions that were present in the dream are present in your waking life.
Laz suggests, for example, asking questions like, “Who (or what) was I marrying in the dream and how did it make me feel?” or, “Am I finally able to reconcile two seemingly opposite or conflicting aspects of myself or my behavior?”
She adds that from a psychological point of view, recurring dreams invite us to look at repetitive patterns, beliefs, emotions, or relationships that we are replaying in our waking lives.
And according to Loewenberg, these dreams can also give us clues about what we need to commit to. “More than anything, wedding dreams are about the need to commit to something and stick to it in real life,” she says.
Oh and just as an FYI, if you’re currently engaged and keep dreaming about your wedding, Loewenberg says it’s extremely normal and no cause for alarm. “Don’t let the dreams freak you out. Focus on what’s important right now as you plan that wedding journey,” she says.
