I don’t know the verse, but of course red is the traditional color for wedding dresses in many Asian cultures.  Although I don’t know if your Grandmother will care.

Red is a very common wedding dress color in many cultures.  I’ve never heard of the verse… and even if there is a verse, who cares?  Wear what you like.

Married in White, you have chosen right
Married in Grey, you will go far away
Married in Black, you will wish yourself back
Married in Red, you will wish yourself dead
Married in Green, ashamed to be seen
Married in Blue, you will always be true
Married in Pearl, you will live in a whirl
Married in Yellow, ashamed of your fellow
Married in Brown, you will live in the town
Married in Pink, you spirit will sink

Married in lime, because it will rhyme? 

So silly. That’s like the Mother Goose poem that says I’m supposed to be full of woe because I was born on a Wednesday. It doesn’t mean anything, it just sounds good in a poem. I’d ignore it.

I have a red wedding dress, lol, and I DON’T wish death on my FI.  It’s actually a sign of prosperity and luck in Asian cutures (and being that my dad is Chinese, makes sense to pay homage to that.)  In Western I suppose it represents passion – so wear red and keep the fires stoked!

So would Ivory be classed as pearl according to this? I got married in Ivory, and living in a whirl sounds like a whole lot of fun to me!Wink
