She dreams that she is getting married. However, when she goes to get her dress her father's coffin is in the room and her dress is in shreds all over the room. Slowly, in the dream, she picks up all of the pieces and puts them back together. When she looks over at her father, he smiles at her.

This dream seems to indicate freedom from her father's control .
