Dream Interpretation: The Wedding

February 5, 2014

It's time for another round of "What's that mean, dream?!" 

The Dream
I am sitting with some of my family members, when suddenly a long line of people comes in and sits on their knees in two rows in front of me. It is all of M's family, come up from Mexico. 
M emerges carrying lots of presents, because apparently it is Christmas.
He hands me a present, which turns out to be a children's book.
He says he can't wait to read with our children, and won't I do him the honor of marrying him?
Of course I am ecstatic and thrilled to pieces, sobbing all over the place.
But then I see that the engagement ring will only fit halfway down my finger.
M apologizes and says that he couldn't afford to buy the extra gold to make the ring big enough because he needs to save the money to send his family back to Mexico after the wedding.
He then jumps up and down and says "We're getting married now!"
And I am like, le duh we are engaged that's what that means.
To which he promptly says "No, we're getting married now."
And pulls me three feet to the left where a priest just happens to be waiting to do the honors right now.
Throughout the ceremony more and more bridesmaids keep showing up and I am confused as to who picked them, considering I've only known I was engaged for all of two minutes. 
They are wearing puffy pink dresses circa 1981. 
Halfway through M's vows, I see my favorite niece, love of my life, is my flower girl. I decide that I absolutely must at that moment stop and tell her just how much I love her and what a wonderful little girl she is. 
To which M is like yo...can you focus on our vows please?

Then I wake up. 

What's that mean, dream?
To dream of a proposal suggests that an existing situation is about to take a turn for the worse. 

A wedding represents a change or transition in your current life, as well as your issues about independence and commitment. It also usually highlights feelings of bitterness, sorrow or death (I thought this was a happy occasion to look forward to...sheesh!)

To dream of a person from Mexico (I tell no lies, dreammoods.com is an exhaustive list of all symbols!) represents the preservation of tradition, family, faith and culture. 

Analytical Summary:
But preserve all the good things Mexico represents, like family (even though your family won't be expanding since you're not getting married, bitter 23 year old.).


What's your analysis of my dream?
Had any good dreams lately?

  1. Well...that's a crazy dream...and the analysis is sure interesting!
    My most recent exciting dream was about going to the most adventurous zoo ever--basically you were right in with the animals and spent most of the time trying to escape from poisonous snakes....but in the dream, it was fun? :P

  2. Seriously, who makes up these analysis? I get the person from Mexico, that's believable. But to dream of getting engaged and it means terrible things? Calling BS on that one!

    PS: I used to dream I'd marry N way before we dated. It was more of a nightmare than an exciting dream.. and look who I married. Take that analysis.

  3. Pretty crazy dream girl. My mom is an ace in dream interpretation. Must be all those years studying psychology. I definitely think there is a lot of change represented, but maybe not in the 'taking a turn for the worse' sort of way. Since the ring didn't fit, it may be representative of something you want, but aren't quite ready for.

  4. How do you get the job of deciding what a dream means, that's what I want to know! Ps. I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog, fellow Michigan blogger :)

  5. Dude, that's some absurd dreaminess right there! One of the things I've read about dream interpretation is to consider how you felt in the dream, as that's usually a more accurate representation of what your subconscious is trying to tell you about your life right now. For instance, reaming about being force fed fourteen banana splits might not be about ice cream, it might be about your feelings of pushed into something or being overwhelmed by a situation you didn't ask for. Just a thought. :-)

  6. I rarely remember my dreams! I wish I could remember them more often.

  7. i've always wanted to know who exactly does the analysis of stuff like this and what do they use to come up with the conclusions? i haven't dreamt in a long time..i just pass right out and sleep like the dead

    Vodka and Soda

  8. I never do this stuff, it always comes out saying I'm pregnant or going to die!


Your comments make my day! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
