Many brides are often clouded before their weddings by the superstitions told by elders, making the wedding planning process that much harder. People claim not to be superstitious, but that changes when its the day of their wedding.
The most classic superstition is “something new, something borrowed, something blue.” This has actually become more than a superstition and is now considered a tradition to many families. This is not necessarily an awful superstition as it is symbolic of gestures. Something old represents a piece from the bride’s past. Something borrowed is a piece taken from someone who is in a happy marriage to symbolize a happy future. The color blue represents fidelity and romantic love.
A more strange superstition is the couple not being allowed to see each other before the ceremony. This comes from arranged marriages in the past, thinking that the couple seeing each other or speaking before the wedding gives them a chance to change their minds. I think that this comes from a concept a little bit far fetched. But, at the same time is sweet. It makes the first moment seeing each other dressed up and prepared to be married, a special moment.
Whether you are superstitious or not, these thoughts play a role in the preparation of the big moment. Some may cause unnecessary stress, while others can be sweet and sentimental.
