    @renwoman:  I on a whole, am not very superstitious. I think my ONLY thing is that FI can not see my dress before the wedding day. I want to do a 1st look before the ceremony, that I dont care about. I want that moment to be special and I think if he sees my dress before, that it wll spoil the moment some how.

    I’ve thought about the fact that my SO’s e-ring’s center stone is a diamond from her mom’s engagement ring. Her parents are no longer together….it concerns me every now and then but it’s a pretty stone and it’s over a carat and really, if we don’t use it, it won’t get used. So whatever. I’m not a superstitious person in life, idk why I would choose to believe something’s “cursed”

    Well my mom was saving a diamond from my Nana’s second marriage (to an asshole) for me. I told her I didn’t want it bc I thought it had bad karma. My cousin was there and said she would take it. She had it set in her engagement ring. She had a whirlwind romance then a bunch of shitty luck for a year and a half. Not be  relationship per say but a bunch of bad luck. Apparently he wasn’t happy, because he left her about 3 weeks ago. She said to me recently I’m going to sell my ring I think it is bad luck. Now I’m so glad I didn’t take that stone. 

     

    My family’s lucky number is 13. So that number wouldn’t matter to me but 666 is another thing. I get freaked out about it.

     

    I don’t even know what an unlucky color or decoration would be haha. I am thinking about doing a first look but I’m not totally sold yet.

    Crap.. I voted wrong I misread the answers.:(

    I would do anything on that list and have already done one of them. FI has already seen me in my dress, seen pictures of me in my dress with all the accessories, and we will be doing a first look so he will see me before the ceremony as well. I’m not a superstitious person.

    Not at all! I don’t want to see each other before the ceremony, but not because of superstitious reasons.

    @renwoman:  I don’t believe in any of those things. My husband will be choosing a wedding dress with me (we are already legally married, just doing a ceremony for funsies) and we are spending the weekend in a suite. He will see me before the ceremony and probably while I’m getting ready too. If a marriage isn’t going to work, it has nothing to do with whether or not he saw your dress. We like to make our own rules and traditions.

    I’m not at all. I would prefer my FI not to see my dress ahead of time, but not because I think it would be a bad omen or anything. I just want it to be a surprise.

    Not at all, but wouldnt have worn someone else’s wedding dress, no matter, mostly because everyone was four sizes and six inches smaller than me, not because I believe the dress would be bad luck. And if the ring had a big, high quality stone in it, who cares? It is an inanimate object with no power or luck of its own.

    If someone had a super rad dress they wanted to let me wear for free, no amount of divorces could stop me from it.

    @Aquaria:  Word about couples tattoos.

    I am a very superstitious person. I checked off most of those boxes. I would not wear a dress from a bad marriage, unless it was, like, vintage-designer-perfection or something. As for the rings/other objects, I’d probably burn some sage or something haha to “clean” them.
