Wedding Myths

There are many wedding myths and superstitions that pass through generations, origins unknown. Some are supposed to mean good luck, others bad.  Like all superstitions wedding myths have no factual basis but for some, it's important to be aware of if you are going to have that traditional Wedding.

Bad luck for the Bride & Groom

It is considered bad luck for the bride to sign her married name before the wedding as it tempts fate. The bride also shouldn't make her own dress as it is said that ‘For every stitch of the wedding dress the bride sews herself she'll shed one tear during her marriage’.

To see a pig or a funeral procession on the Wedding day is a bad omen. If the bride also comes from the country it is bad luck to hear the crowing of a cock after dawn of the wedding day.

After the Wedding the bride should throw away every pin when removing her dress and veil, or she will be unlucky.

Good Luck for the Bride & Groom

On her Wedding day it is fortunate for a bride to meet a lamb, a dove, a spider, or a black cat on her way to church.  It is also fortunate that if on the journey to the church the bride sees a policeman, priest, doctor or a blind man.  On his Wedding day the groom should give a coin to the first person he sees on his journey to the church for good luck.

It is good luck for the groom not to see the dress before the wedding day.  It will also bring more luck if he does not glance at the dress as the bride walks down the aisle.

It is also fortuitous if the couple should exchange vows as the clock's minute hand is "ascending towards heaven".

Good or Bad?

To some, pearls represent future tears and are a bad sign. However, to others, the wearing of pearls takes the place of the bride's real tears, thus she'll have a happy, tear-free wedded life.

Some believe that dropping the wedding ring during the ceremony shakes out the evil spirits, while others believe that whoever drops the wedding ring will be the first to die.

After the wedding

If a bride wishes to be the dominating influence in her married life, she must be the first to buy something after the Wedding. To accomplish this, the traditional way is to buy a pin from the chief bridesmaid.

 In the end the amount of power an action has is the amount that you allow it to have. So enjoy your Wedding day!
