Weddings can be emotionally intense events. Though romantic love is often at the center, weddings, and the marriages they begin, also involve many other aspects of life. Your wedding dream can provide symbolic commentary on many things, whether or not you currently have anyone in mind to marry in your waking life.
While people might prefer to avoid talking about poop in their waking life, the dreaming mind does not have such filters of social appropriateness. There is no need to be overly grossed out or embarrassed by your dream of poop, or feces, though. Such dreams can be full of rich symbolic material.
If you have someone in mind to marry, it makes sense that you could dream about an engagement with them. Even if you are not in the market for marriage at the moment, however, a variety of human relationships ask people to commit to each other. The symbolism of an engagement dream is therefore not limited to the context of romance.
Sex dreams can be fun, but when they cast familiar people from your waking life in unfamiliar roles, that is sometimes awkward. Dreaming of making love with a stranger at least does not have that challenge.
Your dream of making love with a stranger can therefore speak articulately about your own issues without the distraction of involving people you already know.
A dream of driving off a cliff could be scary, and it could symbolize that things in your life are correspondingly scary. In some cases, however, your dream of driving off a cliff could hold the potential for a brighter future.
Dreaming of committing suicide can symbolize the type of difficult situation that happens when you realize you need to end some part of your life that is not working. Though there is potential for rebirth on the other end of such a situation, the disturbing imagery of a suicide dream may reflect the pain of the journey through it.
