The Meaning Behind 6 More Wedding Superstitions

wedding-superstitionsLast week, I discussed six wedding superstitions that are not as well known as “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” It turns out that there are many more traditions, superstitions and premonitions that surround weddings. Here are six more wedding superstitions you may not have heard of!

1. If a couple’s two last names start with the same letter, it’s bad luck.

According to an old Victorian rhyme, if you and your spouse-to-be share the same last initial, you may be in trouble: “To change the name and not the letter/Is to change for the worst and not the better.”

2. The ring finger is a love line.

Why is that diamond engagement ring and those wedding bands worn on the fourth finger of the left hand? People once thought that a vein in this ring finger led directly to the heart - which is a romantic sentiment to think about as you and your spouse exchange matching wedding rings.

3. Spiders are good luck.

If you find a scary eight-legged creature on your wedding day, ponder this before running away in terror: spiders are a “best of luck omen” according to English legend. So finding one in your wedding attire or on top of your matching wedding rings would be an excellent sign!

4. Marrying in May is bad luck.

Spring weddings may be a popular trend now, but an old marriage rhyme warns against May nuptials: "Marry in the month of May, and you'll surely rue the day."

5. Bury the bourbon to let the sun in.

According to Southern tradition, burying a bottle of bourbon one month prior to the wedding will prevent rain from bringing down the party. (You may not want to tell too many people where it’s buried in case they want to drink your good weather guarantee!)

6. Cake brings you together.

Sharing a little sweetness is good for your unity as a couple, according to one wedding superstition. A couple cutting the cake at the same time represents their shared future.

Before you walk down the aisle, find your perfect pair of matching wedding rings.
