Dreaming About Death and Marriage?

English: Sweet dreams dreaming of snowhite and...

So, for the last few days I’ve been having some strange dreams. Actually — my dreams are usually always strange — but whose aren’t? They’re usually not supposed to make sense. But I’ve been having dreams about people dying and people getting married. I think I’ve had two dreams with someone dying, and in one a family member was getting married.

Oddly enough, in the first dream about death I was buying panties at some department store that were on sale for 60 cents (I know…either I’m crazy to buy bargain underwear or hell yes — best sale ever!) with my cousin when my aunt came to inform us of the death. What could that mean? Perhaps my love of deals and bargain shopping should take a back seat to something — or someone that’s more important? Could be…. or maybe not. Since I’m not dream expert, I got to exploring some dream analysis sites for some answers. Here’s what I found about dreaming about death and marriage, respectively…

Dreaming about Death

From Sleeps.com

For years in our family it has meant that someone in the family would soon be wed and the wedding would be beautiful. In some circles it means a birth, the opposite of death. To be unable to identify the dead person means a windfall of money for you, To talk to a dead relative is a sign of great good luck.

From Dreamforth.com

To dream about the death of a loved one indicates that you are missing certain traits that your loved one possessed. You should consider what separated this person from you as far as quality and what you enjoyed about him or her. It is usually this aspect that you are missing that is void from your current relationships or situations. This dream may also indicate that the attributes that defined this person have no bearing on your own life.

From Dreamdoctor.com

Consistent symbol for change and separation in dreams, that should not be interpreted literally. Dreams of a child, sibling, or parent dying reflect change in our perception of that relationship. Old qualities of the person are “passing away,” new qualities are being recognized.


Dreaming about Marriage

From Sleeps.com

Dreaming of a marriage, or a wedding, is the sign of a death in the family.

From Dreamforth.com

To see a marriage in your dream represents change, harmony, and obligations. You are facing a significant stage in your life where you will begin a new journey. It may also symbolize the joining of your various attributes and characteristics, especially the male and female attributes.

From Dreamdoctor.com

Often a literal reflection of desire to marry, especially among younger men and women. At a symbolic level, marriage may represent harmony between feminine and masculine aspects of the self, or a desire to join forces with another person or entity, as in a new business opportunity.

Well. Obviously sleeps.com has something different to say than the other 2. Turns out that my cousin will be getting married this summer, and I can only hope that being unable to identify the death of the person in my 2nd dream will mean a “windfall of money” — ka-ching! (Hey, I can dream…no pun intended.)

Although, that would also mean the death of someone as a result of my dreaming about marriage! Yikes! Maybe I’ll just take the money and hope that I’m about to embark on a new journey, and I’m trying to bring together my masculine and feminine side? Time will tell I guess…

  1. In my experience with dream interpretation.. Always look at what the symbols mean to YOU before checking on website dictionaries. However, if you do, dreammoods is very useful!

    • Great point! I’ve been having some really interesting dreams lately, and I feel like it’s always much more intuitive to dig deeper into what the hidden meaning is first because there’s always an instinct there that’s telling you what it could mean. Dream dictionaries can be fun, too, though — especially like in this case when my dream was so bizarre!
