The symbolic meaning of dreamcatchers for weddings

With the dreamcatcher becoming popular as an artistic part of weddings, it is interesting to find out what it actually means or stands for.
It is believed that the original dreamcatcher was created by the Native American Ojibwa Chippewa tribe and intended to bring good dreams and attract the positive spirit during sleep.
However, with not being Native American and looking at the world we live in today, as well as all the stories that go round about this sacred object, we need to look at what the variations we created are meaning to us now.
I’ll first show you the variation that I was inspired to make:

What I like so much about this theme is that is really expressing a desire to connect with nature and a promise to honor planet earth and all that is living on it. Which is in other words an expression of love. Hence the perfect theme for a wedding!
Now I will have a look at what the specific parts of this design are made of and what they represent.

1. Feathers

Most eye-catching and central are feathers. They can be seen as special gifts from the birds they were once attached to. As the feathers in this design are “fantasy feathers” I would say the general meaning of them would be a message of love and light from the spirit of bird. The color brown reflects a connection to the cherishing nature of earth. They guide the good dreams into the dreamers, or in this case: the couple.

2. Shells

I added a shell that resembles a moonstone … held in precious rose gold … Shells help our intuition and gain insights and understanding. There is also an element of reflection in it. Meaning that you don’t step into a marriage without honest consulting with your heart. It invites you to look at who you are and who you are together. What highlights the other person in you and what parts of yourself are not showing as much as when you are alone?
Moonstone is very soothing and also helps with intuition. Moonstone enhances creativity and heals the emotional body. In a relationship it helps to deepen the bonding between the two of you.

3. Gold and Rose Gold

The sunny warm energy of gold enhances our mood and brings light to our heart. Many couples choose gold for their wedding rings and that has a reason! It helps the flow of beauty and happiness into your life. Optimistic and positive, gold adds richness and joy to your relationship.
Rose gold enhances flexibility and the telepathic communication between the two of you as well as the connection with spirit. Rose gold is ruled by Venus, which should tell you enough … 🙂
