    I don’t know if I believe in them but I do love figuring out where they came from! I’d love to hear more.

    I once read that it was bad luck if the bride wore green because (apparently) back in the day it mean she had been rolling around with someone else! (And gotten grass stains) Not sure I believe that one…

    In Italian traditions it is good luck for the groom to tear the veil because it means he is very passionate about his bride… I don’t think I’d want Mr. A to rip mine in half, but a little tear for tradition might be fun/cute.

    I’d love to hear more!

    I find these sorts of things interesting. I agree it’d be neat to find out where they all came from.

    But now I’m curious: does this mean if we’re looking at rings, dresses, magazines, the Bee, etc BEFORE we get engaged, that we’re “counting our chickens before they hatch” or “putting the cart before the horse”?

    Hopefully not, otherwise I’m doomed! Haha 🙂

    Nope! Although I understand people do them for fun, I did the something old / new / borrowed / blue.

    @Dolcebabe: I have never heard the rail crossing one, what on earth is that about?? Also how does it work of you’re driving a manual car??

    I have tons of superstitions but very few wedding related ones… I think I need to lower the number of layers in my cake now though… lol we have a 4 layer cake and I definitely don’t want more than 1 more baby… tehe

    @Dolcebabe: good to know about June weddings and I’m glad were getting married at 5:30 =D

    These are a lot of fun actually!

    @Dolcebabe: but…unless the marriage ends in divorce, doesn’t every marriage end with one spouse dying? lol. 

    In real life I’m not superstitious but I am a reforming sports supertitious person. I used to have to either watch an entire game or my team would lose, or I wouldn’t talk about them on my blog or they’d lose, or if they won while I sat in a specific seat, then I’ll keep sitting there until they lost. At one point I banned my sister from watching games with me. LOL.

    But I don’t believe that anymore. Thank goodness because it was limiting!

    And if each tier represents the number of kids you will have, my goodness, what would that mean for those of us who are having cupcakes?! I refuse to birth that many kids.

    I heard a few superstitions about rings:

     – A solitary diamond on your engagement ring is supposed to symbolise a solitary life.  I asked for a 3-stone because of this, LOL.

     – My mom had heard that if the metal on your wedding band wore thin, the passion/romance would wear thin also, so her wedding band practically went up to her knuckle!

    @Dolcebabe: I think I would scream if I find a spider in my wedding dress. And I would hate to imagine the reaction of my best friend, the arachnophobic, if that ever happens to her.

    Now I understand the concept of Hune being a favourable month for marriage as it was named after Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage and the queen consort of Jupiter. But it always amuses me to no end since Juno and Jupiter are essentially Hera and Zeus – and those two had FAR from an ideal marriage. Aside from the being siblings, a number of the demi-gods and heroes from Greek and Roman mythology were the result of Zeus’ extramarital affairs.

    These superstitious rules are outdated, and they vary across the world so it would be hard to abide by ALL of them 🙂

    If that were the case every marriage would be doomed!

    I can be a little superstitious about things like knocking on wood, I completely believe that one and will even make other people knock on wood. I am also a sports superstitious person in a way. I believe different little things I do impact what is happening in a game, sad but true. Also I have both a home and away jersey for my favorite player and I have to wear the correct one so he will do well. And I have lucky socks!
