HomeLifeWeddingMarriage Proposal Dream Interpretation

To dream of a marriage signifies commitment, harmony or transitions. The act of marriage proposal marks the beginning of that transition. It can be a turn for the better or for worse depending on the dream context and circumstances. Below are some of the most common marriage proposal dream themes that you may encounter.

Dream About Receiving Proposal or Proposing to Someone
If you are dreaming about a marriage proposal from a person that you are dating or romantically involved with. It reflects that you do want to get married with the person in the future. If they are a potential candidate but you are not romantically involved, you are subconsciously thinking that they may be the perfect one to be in a long term relationship with (or their characteristics / personalities).

However, if the marriage proposal comes from an unknown person to you, then the wedding proposal dream signifies that you are discovering some truth about your personality. It means that you are undergoing an important developmental phase in your life, aka finding yourself. You will undergo the search of the unification of formerly separate or opposite aspects of yourself. Consider the qualities and characteristics of the person that you are proposing or being proposed to. These are the qualities that you need to look at within yourself.

Dream About Proposal Ring
Ugly Ring – The engagement ring itself in the dream are going to represent commitment because a ring is given to someone you are committed to in marriage or engagement or friendship. By receiving a ring that is so ugly that you do not wish to put on yourself at all, it may mean that you do not feel committed to your current fiancee or husband.

However, if you accepted the rings inside the dream even though it may not be perfect or even downright ugly. It shows that your commitment is real and above all materialistic appearances. Remember how you feel and how you respond to your loved one’s ugly ring inside the dream can give you great clues about your innermost emotions and feelings.

No Ring – Dreaming about the marriage proposal with no ring reflects that you are not ready for the long term committed relationship yet. There are many factors that you feel worried about. The main worries is likely a result from materialistic factors such as cost of a wedding and life together in general.

Dream About Bad Proposal
If you are dreaming about bad marriage proposals, consider looking into the real life. It generally reflects bad treatments from your loved one in real life. Is he or she treating you badly and not taking you seriously? The negative feelings can translate into bad marriage proposals in your dream.

If the bad proposal is made by a complete stranger, then it means that you have not found yourself yet and you are struggling to take your own voices seriously.

Dream About Proposal From an EX
To dream that you are getting proposed by your ex suggests that you have accepted aspects of that relationship and learned from those past mistakes. You are being made full with the past experiences.

However, what you continue on responding to the dream can make a difference. If you accepted the marriage proposal from the EX in the dream. It reflects that you are still thinking about the past, the proposal dream itself is warning you to let the past go and stop thinking about the EX boyfriend or girlfriend.

As an extension of that, if you accepted the marriage proposal from the EX in the dream and completely forgot about your current love. It signifies that you are not happy with your current relationship. Your current romantic interest may not be the one for you for the long term.
