Eloping and Keeping Your Marriage A Secret

Dreaming about Getting Married

If you dream about getting married in the shadows, away from your friends and family, then it might be a sign that you have been acting negligently lately and are worried that people who know you might begin gossiping about your activities.

If you are forced into this secret marriage, then you might be unconsciously worried someone in your life is being a bad influence on you and restricting you from achieving your true potential or happiness, especially if the groom or bride is someone you know.

Dreaming about Having Problems Before the Wedding Day

There are several issues you might encounter while dreaming of getting married, and each has different interpretations:

If you dreamed about escaping your own wedding, running away from the church or not showing up at all, it might symbolize you are attempting to avoid a new situation in your life you perceive as permanent and wish to escape from. It could also mean you have reservations about a big decision you took or a commitment you assumed recently, and wish you could make it go away.

You might be having second thoughts or doubt whether to even show up to your own wedding in the dream, and this might be a sign that you are feeling insecure and powerless in your own life. Even if you end up getting married, you feel people perceive you as insecure and indecisive.

If you, on the other hand, find yourself arguing with your spouse-to-be or relatives in the days prior to the wedding in your dream, you might be facing problems with commitment or your self-confidence in real life. It might also be indicating you are jealous of someone else’s success and wish you could be in their shoes instead.

Your spouse-to-be might not show up at the ceremony: This indicates you are experiencing trust issues, especially if you are currently in a relationship in real life.

Finally, if you are late to your own wedding, it might be foretelling you will endure monetary issues or financial loses, or might be a sign that you are struggling to deal with all the responsibilities you are handling at the time of the dream.
