Wedding Superstitions: Fact or Fiction?

Superstitions are peculiar things. Logically, we know we should think of them as nonsense but often we still can’t shift the unsettling feeling that the universe is trying to tell us something! Some of you may be familiar with the superstitions while others will be new, but here are some weird and wonderful wedding ones for brides and grooms to be to either fret over or laugh away:

Same Letter, Last Name

If your new last name begins with the same letter as your first, then you may need to reconsider the upcoming wedding. According to folklore, it is certainly bad luck and there is even a poem dedicated to this issue. ‘The change of name and not the letter, is to change for the worst and not the better’. Something to remember or a load of old codswallop?

Avoid the month of May

Apparently ‘You will rue the day’ you get married in May. Not sure why our ancestors had it in for the fifth month, but this poem sees fit to offer us this warning for some reason. Fortunately, not many people pay attention because May is a wonderful month to get married, often with beautiful weather and all the blooms out.

Located in the UK, there is not much we can do about the rain on our special day so maybe we shouldn’t analyse this one too closely. Some legends say rain on your wedding day is to clean and improve fertility while others claim it represents all the crying that will occur during your wedding!
