Superstitions around the bride’s wedding clothes

old_new_borrowed_blueA superstitious bride may wish to take these superstitions into account in order to guarantee she gets as much luck as possible on her wedding day!

Brides in the USA and many other countries believe in the superstition of wearing “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”.

It is considered bad luck for a bride to let her groom see her wedding dress before the wedding day.

Wearing green at your wedding is generally considered unlucky.

Superstition also says that the bride should not try on her entire wedding outfit before the wedding, and sometimes brides have the last stitch sewn just before leaving for the ceremony.

Mexican brides sew three ribbons into their lingerie: yellow to symbolize plentiful food, blue for good financial fortune, and red for a passionate marriage. In many cultures, placing a coin in the bride’s shoe is said to bring wealth.

It is believed to be bad luck if the bride does not remove and throw away every pin from her dress and veil when she takes off her wedding clothes.

Take heed of superstition when choosing the color of your wedding dress:

  • Married in white, you have chosen right.
  • Married in gray, you'll go far away.
  • Married in black, you'll wish yourself back.
  • Married in red, you'll wish yourself dead.
  • Married in green, you'll be ashamed to be seen.
  • Married in blue, you'll always be true.
  • Married in pearl, you'll live in a whirl.
  • Married in peach, a love out of reach.
  • Married in yellow, ashamed of your fellow.
  • Married in pink, your spirits will sink.
