Whether you are into superstitions or not, everyone gets a little curious, especially when it’s one of the most important days of your life. Here are some fun old superstitions that have been taken seriously by brides everywhere.

2. The English believe a spider found in a wedding dress means good luck. Yikes!

4. The groom carries the bride across the threshold to bravely protect her from evil spirits lurking below.

Southern Tradition : Burying the Bourbon

One of my favorite aspects of working in the wedding planning field, is learning about all of the traditions that come along with different ethnic weddings. We do weddings based out of Nashville, Tn. One of the most ‘southern’ cities in the South! So, yes, indeed, one of my absolute favorite types of weddings to do are the quintessential one-of-a-kind, full blown, Southern wedding!

So many whimsical details are included in these types of weddings. One type of these perfect details would be the many Southern traditions! To most self-respecting, Southerners, you can not have a wedding with out initiating many of the traditions that go into a Southern wedding. One of these fun traditions is burying the bourbon!


Southern folklore says that if you bury a bottle of bourbon at the site where the bride and groom are to be married it won’t rain on their wedding day. According to many believers, this must be done exactly one month before the wedding, the bottle must be completely full, and it must be buried upside down to ensure maximum weather persuasion.

We’ve also heard a variation that stipulates the burying should be done on a day with weather you’d be happy to have on your wedding day. Rain or shine, the bottle should be dug up post-ceremony and enjoyed with the bridal party, making this a win-win tradition no matter the skies.
