I was walking over a white stone bridge with my wife, but it was like an old rope bridge with missing planks, and I was having trouble with the walk because I’m afraid of heights and I kept tripping in the missing planks. Then my wife would be uncaring and pulling my arm and saying, “Come on, hurry up, let’s go.” That is not her in reality.
So all of a sudden we were in an airplane going somewhere and I had a window seat and some stranger was in the middle of us and she was only talking to him. And when I would say something like “yeah, hello, thanks a lot,” she would just do it more.
Then my dream changed setting again. All of a sudden I was in my kitchen with my teeth falling out and blood was everywhere. I didn’t know what to do so I put my teeth in a cup of milk. So there’s the dream. I had three different settings in my dream.

Not only did you have three settings in your dream, you also had seven well-known dream symbols — all of which appear to be related to your recent (judging by your age) nuptials! Let’s take them one by one.
As your dream begins, you and your wife are walking over a white stone bridge. Bridges in dreams are symbols of transition, because when we cross them, they lead us to a new location. It is significant that the bridge is white, and that it is made of stone. White is a color that we know is associated with weddings. It also would be difficult to think of a more stable structure than one made of stone.
Nevertheless, as you cross this symbolic bridge together, two new symbols make their appearance. Suddenly the bridge becomes “like an old rope bridge with missing planks,” which causes you to lose your balance. The bridge becoming unstable suggests that the road to married life may be more challenging than you originally thought. Similarly, losing your balance suggests occasionally confusing emotions as you make this transition.
