In a previous post on wedding traditions and superstitions, we gave you an infographic with some of the best known traditions. For this one, we have decided to follow this up with six bizarre wedding superstitions and traditions. These are more esoteric than the infographic we did earlier. There’s some which you might think “hey, why don’t we do this on these shores?”
To be honest you should read too much into this. For the first of our wedding superstitions, an old English tradition suggested that Wednesday was the best day for getting married. Monday, according to the tradition, was for wealth, with Tuesday for health. The unluckiest day? Saturday, which is the most popular wedding day around the world. This comes from an English folk song entitled Marry Monday, Marry for Wealth.
Instead of rice, peas are thrown at newlyweds in the Czech Republic.
In bridal ensemble, blue is denoted as a colour of purity, love, and fidelity.
In Egypt, newlyweds are given a week’s grace from the cooking. The bride’s family cooks for the newlywed couple so they can relax.
Try to avoid St. Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve. If you wish to have your wedding in Las Vegas, they are the two busiest days of the year.
Stag parties were first held by ancient Spartan soldiers. They kissed their bachelor days goodbye in a raucous way. Of our six wedding superstitions, it remains to be seen if they wore identical T-Shirts or got sloshed outside the Acropolis of Athens. Or got lost in the chariot queue.

What can I say the pictures of the dress I think say enough :) I just fell in love with this dress the moment I put it on, it was completely different to what i had in mind but thanks to Hilda I found the dress of my dreams! 💕 From the moment I walked into Eden Manor and spoke to Hilda I knew she was the lady to find me the perfect dress. The way she approached everything from the way she had myself and my mother choose different style dresses that I liked to the fun challenges given to us . My bridal party and I really enjoyed the experience (it was like a bonding experience) ha ha Hilda was so helpful and honest about each dress I tried on knowing the moment i tried it on how I exactly felt. I could not thank her enough for all her help and expertise as if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have found my perfect dress that day!
I couldn't recommend this bridal shop and Hilda enough, from the moment I walked in the door I knew I was in good hands. Hildas professionalism and expertise made the experience of picking my wedding dress so easy and enjoyable. I can't thank her enough. Id whole heartedly recommend Eden Manor to future brides.
Hilda was recommended to me by family and the experience was phenomenal from start to finish! The place she has is stunning and Hilda herself is flawless in her knowledge and experience of bridal gowns. Her collection of gowns are broad and current, she has an abundance of absolutely sensational pieces! I can’t thank her enough, she put me at ease, kept me focused and found me the perfect dress. If you’re looking for a top quality experience and a beautiful collection of bridal gowns then come to Eden Manor Bridal.
Hilda was very helpful and professional. She had great knowledge of what would suit me and made me feel at ease. Lovely experience-would recommend Eden manor!

What an experience entering Eden Manor. We were treated like royalty from the minute we stepped through the door. Hilda is amazing. It was definitely worth the trip.
Top class customer service - nothing is too much effort - in a beautiful setting. Very professional and experienced - highly recommend.
I just picked up my dress today and to say i love it is an understatement! The girls where amazing and took the time to show me different styles. Would defiantly recommend ��
Had an amazing experience with Hilda at Eden bridal. From the moment I arrived the entrance and showroom are fabulous. And when I met Hilda she sat down with us and I went through what I liked and did not like from trying on dresses and from all the shops we visited, hilda was the only person to ask tea coffee or bubbly. The range of dresses Hilda has and there all in immaculate condition is impressive . Hilda knew what dresses to pick what I wanted and what looked really well on . I said yes to the dress. Would highly recommend Eden bridal best bridal shop I visited. 5 stars 🌟
From the moment you walk through the door you are greeted and treated like a true princess. I said yes to the dress 👗 here back in May. I had such a wonderful time the girls were truly amazing thank you so much.
Beautiful wedding dresses and a brilliant service. I would highly recommend Eden bridal ware ���.
A fairytale experience from start to finish! Hilda and Tom really know their stuff. I would highly recommend anyone to go and check out their beautiful place! You won't be dissapointed!
I had a great experience in Eden Manor Bridal. She was very helpful. They offer a great service and would highly recommend...
Getting my dress with Hilda was such an enjoyable experience! She really helped me figure out what style suited me and couldn't have done more to make sure I was happy with everything. I would really recommend everybody to go and get the Eden Manor experience!
We went to eden manor this eve to hire a suit not knowing what we wanted.met Tom and what can I say top man lovely friendly and looked after us well.we really appreciate all your help!
I can't recommend this place enough, we have just sorted our suits and the service we received was excellent
I would definitely recommend Eden Manor for bridal dress shopping! They honestly have such a wide range to suit everyone’s taste. The ladies are lovely and very helpful. They understood what I was looking for and I left with a gorgeous dress, super comfy and elegant. To top it up, the place is so beautiful that it makes the whole experience that bit extra special.
In my opinion don't waste time going anywhere else, fantastic place with the nicest staff.
Hilda provides a stellar 5* service. She knows dresses! The location is beautiful and the range of dresses fantastic. I went to Eden Manor following a recommendation from a friend. I was frustrated with dress shopping at that stage and was getting too much conflicting information. I explained my vision to Hilda and she just 'got it' and kept me on track until I achieved what I wanted. I would highly recommend Eden Manor to any future brides, you will not only find the dress you love, but the one that flatters you the most, all while having the loveliest experience.
Fantastic experience from start to finish.......the entrance, the ambiance, the selection of dresses! The whole process was a dream. It’s a must visit!!
What a fantastic experience. My sister is looking for a wedding dress and we couldn't have picked a nicer, friendlier, experienced boutique to start. Thank you Caroline, loved every minute
Can’t recommend Eden Manor any higher, we were made feel so welcome from the minute we walked in the door. Customer service was excellent! Definitely worth the visit.
Hilda was absolutely brilliant! She knew exactly what would suit me, I absolutely loved wearing my dress!!
I said Yes to the dress today at Eden Manor Bridal. Thanks to Mairead and Hilda, true professionals, who helped me find the the most perfect dress. By far the best bridal shop and experience I've had. Highly recommend.
I saw a 'pin' on Pinterest and was set on the kind of dress I wanted. I tried endless bridal boutiques but couldn't find what I had in mind anywhere. Hilda managed to track it down for me and was able to order it in even though it wasn't one of her current sample dresses. Thank you Hilda for making my dream dress a reality!
