Hey lovely bees!
I’m not sure where to post this question. So I asked my brothers girlfriend to be a BM recently! I just assumed she would walk down the aisle with my brother since they are dating. All my married couples are walking together as well. My mom mentioned to us that it was extremely bad luck for a couple that is dating and not yet married to walk down the aisle together. Has anyone else ever heard this?? I laughed it off but my brothers gf doesn’t want to bring on any bad luck lol. Let me know if any of you ladies have ever heard of this or seen a couple that was dating not married walk down the aisle together! Thanks!!
edited to say: it has been resolved my mom has just made this superstition up! Thanks for all the responses ladies!

I’ve never heard of it but it makes sense I guess. I know a couple who was in the same wedding but my friend was the MOH and her bf was a regular groomsmen so they didn’t walk down together.

No I never heard of such things. I don’t based my choices as irrational nonsense like that, however ask his girlfriend because she could be offended if she walks down with someone else.

I have never heard this before and googling it produced zero results. I’m pretty sure your mom just made this up lol

I’ve never heard of this, and had a BM and GM that were dating walk together. They have since broke up though! lol I still don’t think it was luck, they were together for more than a year after our wedding.

ok glad I’m not the only one that has never heard of this! I assumed it wouldn’t be a big deal but my brothers gf didn’t want to do it if it would be bad luck. I want her to be comfortable and couldn’t care less who walks with whom. Oh well I’ll show her this and show her its not even a real superstition.

Wow then my relationship is screwed lol. We’ve walked in two weddings together and are now planning to walk in our own so it can’t be that bad of luck.

I’ve never heard of a bridesmaid walking down the aisle with her significant other in someone else’s wedding…
That seems inappropriate. Shouldn’t the girls walk in by themselves and then walk out with one of the groomsmen? Are you saying that her boyfriend is a groomsmen?

@Christy42213: her boyfriend is my brother so yes he is a groomsmen.

Just a fun comment….
I was in a wedding in May 2012 and my boyfriend at the time was added (rather last-minute) as a groomsman. We walked down the aisle together…….3 months later we were engaged! Certainly wasn’t bad luck for me!

@Christy42213: Don’t see why that would be inappropriate? I was planning to get married before my best friend, and her FI was a groomsman while she was my MOH so likely they would have been walking together. Some people do the girls separately and some have the attendants walk in pairs.

In my case I hope not, lol. considering my SO and I will be walking together in a wedding this spring.
@Christy42213: It’s not inappropriate. My SO and I are in a wedding this June. the couple are really good friends of ours. SO is a groomsman and me a bridesmaid, we are paired up together. some have the bridesmaid walk alone, others in pairs.

Never heard of it, and it makes no sense to me… if it is generally accepted that GM and BMs who are not dating/married are walking down the aisle for the purposes of symmetry, why would a dating couple be bad luck? Very odd.
