My Big Fat Dream Wedding

I dreamed last night about getting married. The only problem was I didn't have a groom. The wedding was very elaborate, my mother was very happy, as was her undefined sexually ambiguous close female friend (this person does not exist in real life). Relatives and cousins I don't have attended. At one point, someone took a picture of me and my brother, who I thought briefly was my groom, but at the end of the dream I was still looking for a groom, someone to be in the other half of the picture. I wonder if this dreams signifies traditional female achievement versus modern female achievement. In the dream I was happy to get the attention and never wanted the day to end, yet I also felt the attention was undeserved, at best, incomplete.

Well, I'm glad I had my wedding in a dream. I'd hate to plan one in real life.
