LOL…that is the same one that caught my eye. I’m not worried about them though. Just a thought: if I saw a spider in my dress…that wouldn’t be good, lol!

Whaaaaat? A lamb? Where would I see a lamb in St. Louis?!?!?

At least “the bride cried the whole time” wasn’t on the bad list. Otherwise, bad news for me! lol

These are pretty interesting.. Luckily tho I plan on doing several of the things on the “good list” without even knowing. However there’s no amount of good luck that would make it okay to have a spider in my dress

If I find a spider in my dress I will NOT be excited…

Hmm the rabbit part may pose a problem for me since Chattanooga is seriously like Rabbit City.
How are they bad luck anyways? They’re adorable and they’re feet are supposedly lucky.
I think they should be a good sign of fertility if you get my drift…

Well, I think R is done for. He always falls asleep first. 😉

Well, I don’t remember who fell asleep first.  We were both a bit tipsy and extremely exhausted…. I wonder what that means, lol!

HAHAHA An open grave? Why in the world would they include that? Who would be near a gravesite on their wedding day?! 😮

As for the spider—no, I would freak.

I guess the evil spirits will get me becuase I’m not having any BMs or a MOH!

These are fun! Thanks for sharing.

  • You both step into, and leave, the church with your right foot first.
  • You carry a pinch of salt to the church (it will chase away evil spirits).
  • You carry bread in your pocket on your wedding day and throw it away, which represents you throwing away your troubles, or if you give it to someone who is hungry, which forecasts good fortune during your marriage, because of your generosity.

These are supposed to be good luck 🙂 Did you get these off romancestuck.com! So funny…

Awww, I love reading stuff like this. I’m screwed if the Nun this is right though – my Mom’s 1st cousin is a Nun and she’s staying with us at my parent’s house the night before the wedding. Odds are she might actually be the FIRST person I see that morning. LOL

One of the Bees posted about this a while ago (mostly I remember the Irish wedding traditions) but here goes:

  • Carrying a horseshoe – it has to be facing upward, so the luck doesn’t run out. My mom bought me a garter that has a tiny one on it – face up.
  • I know ringing bells is supposed to be lucky too. It has something to do with warning away evil spirits and also to remind the couple of the church and their vows. I think I read somewhere that it’s where the whole clinking of the glass with a fork thing came from (I hate that btw).
  • The bride’s supposed to carry a handkerchief that should be used for a baby’s christening gown. My mom did carry a hanky with a small bible and her flowers down the aisle. I’m gonna see if I can have the florist wrap it around the stem of my bouquet.

  • The spouse who falls asleep 1st on wedding day will be the first to die.
