Is It Bad Luck To See the Bride or Groom Before the Wedding?


This week’s question: “Is it bad luck to see each other before the wedding?”

Believe it or not, this superstition stems from the days of arranged marriages. Families didn’t want to risk the possibility of the groom seeing the bride before the ceremony and running in the other direction if he didn’t like what he saw.

However, in today’s day and age, the decision is up to you. What makes the most sense If you are having an afternoon ceremony that is cutting it close to sunset, you may want to do a first look to get the perfect photos. You can also opt for first look alternatives. Some brides, however, would rather stick to tradition. For these brides, it’s all about the groom’s expression when he sees her for the first time at the end of the aisle.
