Planning Your Wedding According To Folklore

Posted by Rachel Donnelly on May 17, 2013

Even if you're the type of person who walks under ladders to prove a point, ignores magpies and black cats, and functions normally on Friday the 13th, you can bet that on your wedding day you’ll be clutching something old and donning something blue. In order to achieve the least amount of bad luck, and generally live a curse free existence, follow this sage advice from bygone times below.

  • Choosing the right day of the week: 

“Monday for wealth
Tuesday for health
Wednesday the best day of all
Thursday for losses
Friday for crosses
Saturday for no luck at all”

  • Choosing the best month of the year: 

“Married when the year is new, he'll be loving, kind and true.
When February birds do mate, You wed nor dread your fate.
If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you'll know.
Marry in April when you can, Joy for Maiden and for Man.
Marry in the month of May, and you'll surely rue the day.
Marry when June roses grow, over land and sea you'll go.
Those who in July do wed, must labour for their daily bred.
Whoever wed in August be, many a change is sure to see
Marry in September's shrine, your living will be rich and fine.
If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry.
If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember.
When December snows fall fast, marry and true love will last.”
