The traditional wedding rhyme goes: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe. It describes the four (technically five) objects a bride should have with her on her wedding day for good luck, and brides have been following this custom for centuries.
Any Day in June The sixth month is considered a lucky month for weddings because it's named after Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage.
In some cultures, rain on your wedding day symbolizes fertility and cleansing. This couple's wedding was interrupted by a torrential downpour, and nine months to the day of the wedding, their daughter was born. According to folklore, a knife signifies a broken relationship and is bad luck to give as a wedding gift.
Horseshoes. Horseshoes have long been seen as a symbol of good luck in everyday life. For your wedding day, if the bride carries a horseshoe with ribbons tied on it during the ceremony, it collects all the good luck from the day.
It's bad luck to wear your wedding rings before the ceremony. And it's bad luck to take them off once they've been slipped on your finger. And don't let the groom drop your wedding ring! This is a disastrously bad omen, according to some.
Hands down, Saturday is the most popular day of the week for weddings. Many people have off from work, and it gives out-of-town guests Friday evening and Saturday morning to travel. They're more affordable than Saturday and Sunday weddings, and the venues couples want are more available.
Is it bad luck to take off your engagement ring? Old superstitions might have claimed it was bad luck to take your engagement ring off. Leaving your engagement ring or wedding band at home while you go to the gym isn't bad luck (nor is it a reflection of your relationship).
Don't Wear It If you don't want to worry about your engagement ring during the ceremony, recruit a trusted bridesmaid or family member to hold onto it during your ceremony. Some brides may prefer to stow it somewhere safe, like a locked box, instead.
Tradition has it that the bride (and/or her family) buys the groom's wedding ring, while the groom (and/or his family) pays for the bride's. Again, this language is binary—the real moral of the story is that each person traditionally pays for the other person's ring.
Traditional etiquette would require the bride to wear her engagement ring on her right ring finger to walk down the aisle. During the exchanging of the rings, the groom would place the wedding band on the bride's left finger. The bride could then slip the engagement ring on top of the wedding band after the ceremony.
The Origin of the First Kiss Back then, it was customary for the priest to give a holy "kiss of peace" to the groom, who would then pass the kiss on the bride. This was done to bless the marriage inside of the church, giving way to the common phrase heard today at most ceremonies: "You may now kiss the bride."
Traditionally, the groom says his vows first followed in turn by the bride. That said, some couples may choose to say them in unison to each other, and if you'd rather the bride go first, speak to your registrar or celebrant well in advance to see if it's something that can be arranged.
