Greek Wedding Superstitions

Many marriage rituals are meant to offer luck to the happy couple, while others are meant to protect them from spirits who may wish them a not-so-happy future.

Step 1: Put the ring on the finger
Wear the engagement and wedding ring on the fourth finger of the left hand. In the past, that finger was believed to be a direct connection to the heart.

Tip
Brides wear “something old” as a connection to the past, combined with “something new,” for the future. “Something borrowed” from a happy bride would ensure good luck, while “something blue” symbolizes faithfulness, fidelity, and good luck, and wards off evil spirits to boot.

Step 2: Disguise the bride
Disguise the bride with a veil. Ancient Roman and Greek brides wore veils as protection from evil spirits that sought to harm them because they were envious of happy people.

Tip
Put herbs in your bridal bouquet. In ancient times, bouquets were a mixture of flowers and herbs because strong-smelling herbs would ward off evil spirits, bad luck, and ill health.

Step 3: Confuse the spirits
Confuse the spirits with decoy bridesmaids. In the past, bridesmaids wore dresses similar to the bride in order to confuse any nearby evil spirits who wished to harm the bride.

Step 4: Seal it with a kiss
Seal your love with a kiss. During Roman times, all legal contracts were sealed with a kiss. Not only is the kiss a symbol of the bride and groom’s love, it also denotes their agreement to enter into a lifelong contract.

Step 5: Cross the threshold
Carry the bride across the threshold. In ancient times it was considered unlucky if the bride were to trip while crossing into her new home, or enter with her left foot. So her new husband gets the honor of carrying her through the doorway. Follow these superstitions and enjoy a happy marriage.

Did You Know?
England’s Queen Victoria married in a white gown in 1840 and originated the Western tradition that has lasted to this day. Before then, brides simply wore their best dress.
