- Wedding: September 2013
@Anardana: LOL…. I am soooo having the colour GREEN!!!! but Yes you should NOT have a green wedding dress as it is said that it is unlucky and that you are shamed of the Groom!!!! However being for the most part Celtic the colour green is important!!!
In many parts of England and espcially the North superstitions are a BIG part of life and I will be honset and say that there were various aspects that with this wedding that I have more adhered to because of it!!! lol Like we are marrying on a Tuesday (Only because we could not get a wednesday – apprently the best day of all – because the numbers of the date did not work with a wednesday!!!) Just like the month that you marry in – in England it ALL has a significance for one reason or another!
Here is a website with such superstitions:
In truth I find it totally facinating learning about different cultures than what we are brought up around and with, which in turn has made me a person that does not judge another on sight, because what is acceptable to one culture would be in insult to another. Just as the colour green for a wedding dress in England would be a NO NO but in China RED is considered THE colour to wear for a wedding dress… I find it slighty amusing at times when people talk about it being ‘Non-traditional’ to have a coloured e-ring or a coloured wedding dress etc etc BUT if they researched history they would discover that ‘coloured’ WAS the tradition!!! LOL
Perhaps each bride should just make their OWN tradition for the wedding she and her Groom desire to have…after all the world is now a place were because travel to other places is so much easier than years ago the cultures are mixing and therefore traditions of old are being primarily blended to make new ones.. I myself am in a mixed relationship and are using both cultures traditions for the wedding. 🙂
