08 Mar Feeling Superstitious? Let’s Take A Look At Some Of The Biggest Wedding Superstitions
Even if you don’t necessarily believe in superstitions throughout the rest of your life, it seems all too common for brides and grooms to buy into some of the wedding superstitions that always do the rounds.
Some of which make sense, however, some of them are a little on the odd side.
Therefore, with this in mind, we have put together our guide to some of the biggest and weirdest, wedding superstitions out there.
An 8 legged friend can be a helping hand
The idea of finding a spider on your wedding dress isn’t something that many brides are going to really want to happen.
However, it is thought that a spider on your wedding dress on the big day is good luck, not only for the day, but also for the rest of your marriage too.
Which day to say I do?
The most popular day to say I do has to be Saturday’s.
Despite this, it is thought that Saturday is the unluckiest day to get married and instead brides and grooms should aim for a Wednesday instead.
Similarly, May is thought to be the worst month to get married, so much so that there is even a poem to highlight this.
Carrying over the threshold
The groom carrying the bride over the threshold has been tradition for as long as anyone can remember.
Not only is it great fun, but it also makes for some awesome photos too.
But where did this tradition come from?
It is thought that carrying your bride over the threshold was to ward off any evil spirits that could plague your marriage, not quite the romantic notion that many people think of it as.
Stand to the left
Whilst the bride may stand on either side now, traditionally a bride would stand to the left of her groom.
Why was this?
Well back in the day this was to have their right hand free so that they could fight off any potential suitors who would like to take the brides hand instead.
Why something blue?
We all know the idea of having something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue, but what does something blue have to do with anything?
It is thought that having something blue on your wedding day is going to represent love, fidelity and purity.
If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it
Why are the wedding and engagement rings worn on those particular fingers?
We think that the reason for this was quite romantic.
This particular ring was seen to contain a vein that led straight to the heart!
Superstitions are just that, things that people believe that may or may not be true.
Whether you do believe them, or whether you don’t, it is entirely down to you.
Just make sure that you don’t spend your entire wedding worrying about them else you may end up ruining this exciting time.
