    I have never heard this before.  I was considering wearing pearls but didn’t.

    I think you need an option for “Never heard of this before and but I’ll wear what I want!”

    I thought a lot of brides wore pearls? I was going to but they don’t match my dress =/

    If you like them and think it’s bad luck then why not just follow good luck traditions to counterract it? I have never heard of this superstition, but I’m not superstitious at all.

    Never heard of this either. My pearl bracelet was my sister’s “something borrowed” at her wedding.

    You don’t have an option in your poll that will work for me. I think you need to add:

    I never heard that one before, but it won’t affect my choice of jewelry at all.

    I’ve never heard that one before.  I have heard that opals are bad luck under some arbitrary condition or another, but I don’t think it had anything to do with weddings.

    Never heard that before either.  I wore pearls on my wedding day. Is this bad luck with the wedding day or the marriage or what?  I didn’t have any bad luck with my wedding day.  Well, some things went wrong but overall it was a great success.  Bad luck with the marriage??  I guess we’ll have to wait and see how my marriage goes.

    I think it’s bogus.  Where did you hear this from?

    I never heard this before…I certainly hope its not true because my dress has tiny pearls all over it!

    I’ve heard this before, but I think it’s silly to put much stock in it. I understand things like not wanting the groom to see you in your dress (because I think it’s a sweet suprise) or doing the ONBB (for traditions sake I guess), but I think superstition deserves no place in a wedding. Weddings are about the love you have for one another. Are you going to stop loving your SO if you wear pearls to your wedding? Heck no! Wear what you want:)

    I’ve never heard this – I thought pearls were a classic/traditional jewel for brides. It wouldn’t affect my choice in the slightest.

    Do you know what culture/tradition this is from?

    Yeah, I’m with the others in that I have NEVER heard of this before.  I wore pearls for my wedding and still would have worn them, even if I had heard of this superstition before.    I too am curious as to where this superstition comes from.
