Normally I have some fairly vague dreams, most of which I don't remember upon waking. But there are some dreams that stand about among others. My most recent occured just the other night. I was at my own wedding. (Maybe the fact that Pennsylvania now has same-sex marriage could have something to do with it, but that was back in June!)
My wedding dream was a bit weird. In my dream I was walking down the aisle of a church, toward the altar, which turned out to be a large set of steps that stopped at the wall. I walk past a cousin of mine who acted at a best man of sorts along with many others, whom I attrituted to my family. He and I exchange vows. Another strange aspect of this dream was it was someone I am acquianted with in life: I attended the same high school, and graduated the same year, I even loaned him money (over a year ago, which I just gave up on getting back--which was likely for the best). Then my dream went into another phase.
The second half of my dream was me searching for photos of the wedding. I found none. The dream ended.
Usually, I go to http://www.dreammoods.com/ for interpretation, since it's likely to be more objective than I would be in the case.
My interpretation is this: since dreams can be prophetic to a strong degree, am I looking at my own impending marriage, but not the person I described? Or as the interpretation goes: there are two aspects of myself coming together either in the immediate future, or some time in the distant future. I believe this dream to be nearly purely symbolic, since I know I wouldn't have any semblance of a chance with the person I described in my dream. The symbolism seems like what the dream site mentioned: http://dreammoods.com/cgibin/dreamdictionarysearch.pl?method=exact&header=dreamsymbol&search=wedding.
However, as I write this, I get the feeling something is missing and it will make itself known on its own time. Furthermore, the person I was getting married to almost didn't seem to be who I thought, it may well have been my own impression. I still feel an air of uncertainy when I think back on this most recent dream.
Any help of dechipering this dream is greatly appreciated.
