    @Toastymama:  First te I’ve ever heard this.  I’m wearing pearl stud earrings (my “borrowed” from gf of mine).  My dress is ivory so I think pearl jewelry really compliments it and is classy and simple and elegant looking.

    Some traditions/myths actually believe that pearls are good luck as they take the place of the brides tears so she will have a tear-free happy marriage. So I guess it depends on how/where you are brought up (I am in Australia too by the way).

    @j_jaye:  This!  I wore pearls and a lot of my friends all wore pearls when getting married.

    I have never heard of that. Where did it come from? What culture?

    I believe pearl accessories are very commonly used by brides globally… but they are also used when women dress in black for funerals where I live. Pearls are classic, sophisticated, and noble. I think they are perfect for brides.

    Oh I voted “no” only because I am wearing crystal jewelry.

    I have never heard of that before. But I wore a pearl necklace on my first wedding day and my husband (now ex) had an affair only after 1.5 years later. I doubt it was b/c of the necklace but it didn’t end well. 2nd wedding I wore a swarovski crystal necklace. Maybe it’s a good thing! But he really is a better guy.

    I’m from Spain and that’s a well know superstition, at least among all people I know. Still, a lot of brides wear pearls for their wedding ignoring it. Its not really taken very seriously.

    I didn’t wear pearls, just in case 🙂

    @raspberrymacaron:  wow, that’s interesting!!!

    Honestly, there are way too many things to worry about if you take all these superstitions seriously. I can’t be bothered…especially since I am marrying someone of different culture. I have a lot more etiquettes and manners to worry about already!

    I’ve never heard of this superstition. But I’m not the least bit superstitious, so I’ll be rocking pearls regardless.

    I’ve not heard of this one before.  I probably won’t be wearing them anyway though, as I’m not really a pearl kind of girl Smile
