@Missus_LLC:  Well, in the South, I think MOST brides wear pearls and most of the married couples that I know have really great marriages even if the bride did wear pearls on her wedding day.

I also plan on wearing pearls. I don’t think a piece of jewelry will dicate how your life will go

I wore pearls for my wedding day and they came with a booklet about the pearls. It actually said the opposite. That the pearls will take the place of the bride’s tears…so a happy marriage.

I don’t believe in superstitious stuff like that. Wear whatever jewelry you want!

I’d never heard of that.  If that’s the look you want, go for it!  You could spend your whole life worrying about old superstitions.

I don’t think you should let it stop you, but my grandmother thinks you should never give pearls as a gift bc it’s bad luck or causes tears.  Sounds like your mom’s idea.  Though I will say, a few years ago she gave me a pearl ring!! Lol

I wore pearls… I’ve never heard of that.  I didn’t care about the superstitions that I had heard of… But I haven’t even heard of that one! 🙂

So weird, my mom literally JUST told me that old saying. I had never heard of it before either.

I’m not superstitious at all so it wouldn’t stop me from wearing them.

@Missus_LLC: I have heard about this — wearing pearls on your wedding day = a marriage full of tears. I don’t know where this tale originates from but I have heard it and so has my mom, Future Mother-In-Law, and Fiance. However, the Greeks believed pearls helped promote marital harmony and prevented newlywed brides from crying.
