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?
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
and a lucky sixpence in her shoe
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.
