Wedding Dresses – Traditions and Superstitions that Surround Them
When you think about a wedding, the chances are that the first thing to cross your mind will be the wedding dress. For almost four hundred years, the wedding dress has been a focal point of just about any wedding. There are many traditions that surround the wedding dresses, superstitions relating to weddings were many and varied.
Originally, the wedding dress was to symbolize the purity of the bride and her suitability to be a bearer of her groom’s children and a wife. It was in fact Queen Victoria who introduced the concept of a white wedding gown, when she married in 1940. This tradition is still carried on today.
When Empress Eugenie married Napoleon III a few years later, she chose a wedding gown to suit her sense of high fashion and her love of regal finery. You can trace the elegant and high-style wedding dresses that are worn today right back to Empress Eugenie.
Some wedding traditions and superstitions have stood the test of time, but others have not lasted. One of these that did not survive to the present day was the belief that it was not proper for the bride to make her own wedding gown. During the time this superstition was rife, the last stitch was to be stitched just before the bride entered the church for her wedding – this really would not work nowadays! At the same time a bride was not meant to try on her dress prior to her wedding day otherwise she would often be accused of counting her chickens….
In the late 1500’s the symbol of eternal love was bows or love knots in the form of a figure eight, and these were often added to the decoration on the brides wedding gown.
Once the wedding had taken place the guests would then cut off a love knot to keep as a souvenir.
During early weddings, the colors that the bride wore were believed to foretell either a full and happy life with a loving husband and many healthy children, or that many disasters would befall the couple and they would have a miserable future life. The various superstitions were given credence due to the lack of modern medicine, so any omen could be considered to cause bad luck or bad health.
Blue became a popular addition to the wedding gowns in 1800, as this was said to associate their ceremony with the Virgin Mary and therefore to strengthen the symbol of purity. If a bride had a sparkling blue sapphire engagement ring, it was believed that this would promote fidelity and eternal love. This is where the modern day “something blue” comes from.
Although pink became a popular choice for wedding gowns, especially during May weddings, a wedding superstition considered pink to be very unlucky with the saying “Marry in pink and your fortunes will sink.” Victorian women thought that having red in your wedding outfit was referring to scarlet women and hussies.
Having green for your wedding gown was said to be very unlucky as it attracted the fairies, and bringing their attention was not good as it could bring lots of bad luck and cause it to rain on the day.
Another wedding rhyme is “Marry in brown and you will live out of town,” so brown was not a popular color at weddings. If you lived in the country you were not as elegant and high class as those living in the cities and towns.
One color that has risen and fallen in popularity over the years is yellow. It was hugely popular during the 1700’s, but before this it was not considered holy to be wearing yellow in a church, as the color was linked to non-Christians.
If the bride came from the lower economic classes, she would often wear gray – this way she could keep the dress as her Sunday best. Employers would provide their domestic staff with a new grey dress each year.
Wedding superstitions have survived centuries in one form or another and today you can still find some wedding traditions and superstitions.
