What are some superstitions that go along with weddings?
I know he shouldn’t see me before the wedding and I shouldn’t use our gifts before the wedding but what else is bad luck?
We’re planning sleeping arrangements for a few days before the wedding and my fi is panicing that sleeping in the same place (not even the same bed) is bad luck 2 nights before the wedding…I told him he was wrong….but is he? I dont’ know any of this stuff.
What else is out there as far as superstitions are concerned???

I wouldn’t worry about being too superstitious or you’ll drive yourself insane! Your marriage is based on so many more important things than a bunch of old wives’ tales. That being said, make sure you have your something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. That’s good omen anyways

I’m not particularly superstitious for the most part, but fiance doesn’t want to see the dress before the wedding. He’ll run out of the room if he thinks I’m going to talk about it!
My weird thing is about knives. Fiance really wanted to register for nice knives, but for some reason the Chinese superstition about no knives for weddings resonates with me. I’ve got to get over it because knives are expensive!

Oh yeah, the dress! My FI doesn’t want to see my dress….now that, I do consider a bad omen! ha

The only ones I know are: Not seeing you in the dress until you walk down the aisle, and not practice signing your last name until you’re married. Those are the only ones I know.

Too funny … I thought I was the only one who had an FI that was all freaked out about the dress. My mother is sticking to the "he can’t see you in the dress". I personally am not superstitious… but my mom will get her way bc FI says he wants that moment to see me for the first time in my dress, but the funny story is I told my mom originally that we were going to do pictures before the ceremony and she was FREAKING out about bad karma, blah, blah, blah…
Also, to add to the old riddle for good luck: Something old, something new, something barrowed, something blue… and a penny in your shoe (for good luck). This too my mother won’t give up on. LOL

I’m not overly superstitious but somethings I’m doing more out of tradition (not allowing him to see the dress, or me on the wedding day, using gifts before we Wed, etc.).
Another that I’ve heard: No ex’s should be in attendance at the weddings (none of your ex boyfriends or his ex girlfriends)… this wont be a problem for either of us!
