Superstitions, customs,  you hear some from friends, some from grandparents or elders, where did these unique tales derive?

Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue

This custom is based from an English poem: “Something old, something new Something borrowed, something blue And a silver sixpence in her shoe.” Each item refers to a good luck token for a bride. The custom is that if the bride carries all four items on her wedding day, she will have a happy marriage: Something old – continuity with the bride’s family and the past Something new – optimism and hope for the bride’s new life ahead Something borrowed – an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is believed carried over to the new bride Something blue – Before the late 19th century, blue was a popular color for wedding gowns, as evidenced in proverbs like, “Marry in blue, lover be true.”

Seeing Each Other Before The Wedding

This superstition dates back to time of arranged marriages, when people believed that if the couple saw each other before the ceremony, it would give them a chance to change their minds about the wedding.

Rain on Your Wedding Day

Ironically, rain is viewed by many cultures as a sign of good fortune, predicting fertility, renewal, cleansing and unity.  Some, on the other hand, view a rainy wedding day as having a negative connotation, representing that the bride is likely to shed many tears during her married life. A wedding day is known to be a symbol of fertility, related to the fact that rain waters the ground, allowing plants to grow. The idea that rain signifies renewal coincides with the rain washing away all the sorrow and struggle in one’s life, providing the ability to start new; rain’s cleansing qualities wash away sadness and hard times. take note, the expression “tying the knot” is derived from rainy wedding day lore. Since a wet knot is more difficult to undo, rain on a wedding day means the marriage is likely to remain strong. How do you think of it now? opinion changing?

Carrying the Bride Over the Threshold

Generations ago, it was considered lady like for the new bride to be, or at the very least appear to be, unwilling to “give herself” to her new husband… On a darker spin, several follow a different belief…following the theory that ancient Medieval Europe believed that a bride was extra vulnerable to evil spirits through the soles of her feet. To avoid bringing in any evil spirits, the groom carried the bride into their new home.

Crying on Your Wedding Day

This is also supposed to bring good luck to the bride if she sheds tears on her wedding day.  It symbolizes that she has cried all her tears and won’t cry at all during the marriage.

Breaking Glass

In several cultures, it is customary for the bride and groom to shatter a plate, cup or vase after exchanging rings or at the end of the ceremony. Each individual shard, symbolize the number of happy years the couple will spend together. Just a few passed down customs covered, each marriage its own piece of Art.

Sentimental Keepsakes

Every part of your Wedding has special meaning. From the beautiful flower bouquets adorned with Baby’s Breath to the centerpieces you have handmade. There are sentimental keepsakes that you can find a precious way to preserve. Start with your Wedding Dress.

Layers of beautiful satin and lace, trimmed with delicate features all over. You could store the dress and save for someone else to wear. Or, you could have the dress cut down and have a seamstress make Angel Dresses out of. These precious little baby girl dresses, toddler dresses or other will be a lovely way to preserve your dress and share with others. Give as gifts for special occasions such as Christenings, Baptisms, holiday wear or otherwise.

Wedding flowers can be preserved by drying in silica gel, pressing in between pages of your Bible, or other means. They can then be reused in special floral arrangements, jewelry, centerpieces or other great ideas. You may have leftover candies or other specialty treats. You can turn these into little gift trinkets for parties, take home souvenirs or other memorabilia. You can put candies in gift boxes, bags or wrapping.

Leftover food? How about donating the leftover food to a homeless shelter? You will not only enjoy sharing you will feed hungry people. There is great satisfaction in giving and sharing.

The Celebration Hall is the perfect spot for your Wedding and Reception or other event!
