5 Wedding Day Superstitions - From seeing each other before the ceremony to looking at yourself in the mirror fully dressed and wearing something old, new, borrowed, and blue to getting carried over the threshold, read what we have to say below about why it’s NOT bad luck.
Superstition #1: Seeing each other before the ceremony is bad luck.
We say: There is a certain magic about couples seeing each other for the first time as one walks down the aisle, however for many couples; waiting until the ceremony doesn’t work with their New Jersey wedding day style. A "first-look photo shoot" pre-ceremony can be just as magical, and it’s not bad luck at all.
Superstition #2: Looking at yourself in the mirror when you’re fully dressed in your bridal attire is bad luck.
We say: Clearly you want to look at yourself in all of your wedding-day gorgeousness before you head down the aisle – so this superstition is clearly outdated.
Superstition #3: You must wear something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.
We say: Sure, this is a fun tradition however; if finding these items are causing you stress, then you don’t have to do it.
Superstition #4: The bride must be carried over the threshold when you arrive home for the first time after the wedding.
We say: Sure, it’s a sweet tradition, but don’t freak out if you forget. You’ll probably be exhausted right after the wedding anyway!
Superstition #5: Getting married on a date that includes the number 13 is bad luck.
We say: Ask anyone who got married in the year 2013 (or Taylor Swift) – the number 13 can totally be good luck, so flip this superstition on its head and get married any day you desire!
