Wedding Day Luck

Published 03/15/2021

In honor of St. Patrick's Day here are some good luck charms for your wedding day. 

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe” This rhyme dates to Victorian England, and it seems to signify the simultaneous hope for continuity and a fresh beginning. It dates to Lancashire, England, in the late 1800s. The oldest written reference is in an 1871 issue of St. James Magazine." According to 

Keep a Secret - Have a first look at one another before walking down the aisle. 

Catch! When the bouquet is tossed, the lucky lady who catches it is believed to be married next.  Some variations of the tradition say the gentlemen who catch the garter, and the bouquet catch will be the next pair to wed. So, if you are at a wedding with your significant other be sure to both participate! 

Every family heirloom holds a little bit of magic. Borrow your mother’s veil, your grandmother’s locket or your great uncle’s cufflinks to infuse your big day with a dash of good luck and nostalgia. Not only can this act as your “something old” but it’ll also add a bit of vintage flair to your ensemble. 

The dreaded word...RAIN! Despite what some may believe, rainy weddings are lucky! So it may not be that bad to have a few drops of rain on your wedding day.
