    I’ve never heard that sayings, but we got married in May, so I’d say I’m not superstitious!  Truthfully though, I never really let superstitious sayings bother me.

    I’ve never heard of these… guess I’m glad I didn’t go with the original May date!  I’m not superstitous though, and I’m glad because it seems there’s no winning if you listen to too many of these things.

    I’ve heard the day of the week one, but never the month one.  I wouldn’t put anything into any of those sayings.  So I guess that means I’m not superstitious.

    I like superstitions if they’re positive about my wedding :-). I’m completely biased and best of all, I’m getting married on a Wednesday!

    For me it depends on the superstition. For example, I will be wearing something borrowed, blue, old, and new, with a penny in my shoe. I also just found out that I’m getting married on a full moon day, and not too thrilled about it at all. Other things like seeing him before the wedding aren’t a big deal though.

    I believe in tradition, not superstition. I don’t think it’s bad luck if you spend the night together before the wedding, or don’t wear something old, something new something borrowed, something blue.  But me personally, I believe in doing these traditions, just like our parents did.

    I’m glad I’m not superstitious because we’re getting married on Halloween! (Our original destination was Mexico and there they celebrate the ‘Day of the Dead’ on that day. My FI still tells everyone we’re getting married on the day of the dead!)

    I’m not superstitious and never have been. Actually superstitions were created as a way to attempt to explain the unknown (and everything else under the sun) because the masses were not allowed to get an education of any kind until fairly recently in history.

    Actually — I probably need to correct my last post… While we’re not superstitious, my FI’s family is Hindu so we did select our date based on choices given to us by a Hindu astrologer. =) They take each partner’s time, date and place of birth and somehow come up with ‘lucky dates’ for you. On the other side, they consider white bad luck (in India its a color of funerals / mourning – red is the color of good luck) but I’m still wearing a white dress. (Technically off-white but still white.)

    Have you ever heard that rhyme that is based on the day of the week your baby is born and goes “Monday’s child is fair of face, Tuesday’s child is full of grace . . .” I am supposed to be full of grace. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

    Monday’s child is fair of face,

    Tuesday’s child is full of grace,

    Wednesday’s child is full of woe,

    Thursday’s child has far to go,

    Friday’s child is loving and giving,

    Saturday’s child works hard for his living,

    And the child that is born on the Sabbath dayIs bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

    Dang it, looks like I’ll be working my tail off!  Good thing superstitions aren’t my thing!
