Should you be worried if there is rain scheduled on your wedding day? Are you wondering if you need to book a hotel room, so you won’t see your fiancé the night before the wedding and before the ceremony? With so many different wedding myths out there, it’s hard to keep them all straight. If you are interested in learning more about common wedding myths and superstitions, keep reading. We share what we’ve found about wedding myths and what they really mean.
Seeing Each Other Before The Wedding
The superstition of not seeing each other before the wedding dates back to the time of arranged marriages. During this time, people believed that if the couple saw each other before the ceremony, it would give them time to change their minds about getting married. Today, however, plenty of couples choose to do a “first look” photo session before walking down the aisle, and it has no effect on their marriage.
Rain On Your Wedding Day
Rain on your wedding day might put a crimp in your plans, but it is known to symbolize fertility and cleansing. While this is just an old wives’ tale, today it can provide a silver lining to couples who have to deal with rain on their special day. Additionally, there are some great photos that can be captured!
Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue
We’ve all heard of the common saying, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” for weddings, but what does it really mean? Something old is meant to represent the past, while something new is meant to represent the couple’s future. Something borrowed refers to something that the bride borrows from someone who is happily married in hopes that the person’s good fortune rubs off on her. Something blue denotes fidelity and love. However, if you don’t have things that check all of these boxes, it’s okay! It is one of many traditions that are options when you get married.
Carrying the Bride Over the Threshold
This wedding superstition dates back to medieval times. Many believed that the bride was vulnerable to evil spirits through the soles of her feet, so to avoid bringing in any evil spirits, the groom would carry the bride into their new home. Today, this is just a fun thing that couples do and can make for some adorable photos.
