Wedding and Marriage Superstitions – if you believe

Wedding and Marriage Superstitions – if you believe with the wedding season well and truly upon us, did it ever leave?

Wedding and Marriage Superstitions - if you believe
Happy ever after?

I got to thinking about all of the little superstitions, old and new,  we attach to Weddings and Marriage.

Some of them you will instantly recognise, other not so much.

However, please bear in mind this is just a bit of fun and not to be taken seriousl.

 

Rhymes and Poems- Days of the Week

Monday for health

Tuesday for wealth

Wednesday, best of all

Thursday for losses

Friday for crosses

Saturday for no luck at all.

Months of the Year

Married when the year is new, he’ll be loving, kind and true.

When February birds do mate, you wed nor dread your fate.

If you wed when March winds blow, Joy and sorrow both you’ll know

Marry in April when you can, joy for Maiden and for Man.

Marry in the moth of May, and you’ll surely rue the day

Marry when June roses grow, over land and sea you’ll go.

Those who in July do wed must labour for their daily bread

Whoever wed in August, many a change is sure to see.

Marry in September’s shine, your living will be rich and fine

If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry.

If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember.

When December snows fall fast, marry and true love will last.

For a lucky bride wear

Something old

Something new

Something borrowed

Something blue

and a lucky sixpence in her shoe

Dress colours

Wedding and Marriage Superstitions - if you believe
Multi coloured wedding dresses

 

Married in white, you have chosen right.

Married in grey, you will go far away

Married in black, you will wish yourself back

Married in red, you will wish yourself dead

Married in green, ashamed to be seen

Married in blue, you will always be true

Married in pearl, you will live in a whirl

Married in yellow, ashamed of your fellow

Married in brown, you will live in the town

Married in oink, your spirit will sink.

 

Wow some of these are really wacky.

So as long as you marry on a Wednesday in either January, September or December and wear white or blue then you should be ok.

If you believe.
