One of my blogging goals for 2012 is to post more about international weddings. While researching different cultures, I've found that a lot of their traditions originated in some very old superstitions. Since today is Friday the 13th- the most superstitious day in America- I've pulled together a list of my favorite international wedding superstitions. Enjoy!
#3. If the younger of two sisters marries first, the older sister must dance barefoot at the wedding or risk never landing a husband (source).
#4. The bride is said to be doomed if she wears her complete wedding outfit before the big day (source).
#5. Pre-colonial Filipino superstitions warn that the groom and the bride should avoid traveling before the nuptial to prevent accidents from happening (source).
#6. In Russian villages they still believe that only sorcerers and ill-wishers “cut the path” of the newlyweds to harm them. No one should cross the path in front of the bride and bridegroom neither on their way to ZAGS (Registry Office) and/or church and back (source).
