When it comes to weddings, there’s no shortage of traditions and superstitions. However, many of the most popular legends are not true. If you have a superstitious friend about to tie the knot or want to enlighten a few of your family members before walking down the aisle, below are a few of the most common wedding myths debunked.

  1. The Bride & Groom’s Families Sit Separately 

Separate seating for the bride and groom’s families at the wedding venue is an old tradition. Today, many couples choose to seat families together. After all, once you’re married, you all become one big family.

  1. Rain on the Wedding Day Is Bad Luck

Even the best wedding planner can’t control the weather, but don’t be disheartened by a few drops of rain; your luck won’t change. If you’re getting married at an outdoor venue and it begins to rain, seize the opportunity to take some dramatic wedding photos.

  1. Seeing the Bride Before the Wedding Brings Misfortune

​​​​​​​When arranged marriages were more common, keeping the bride and groom from seeing each other before the ceremony was done so one of them didn’t back out of the deal. Of course, you’ll both be busy preparing to walk down the aisle, but poking your head into the dressing room and asking a question or sneaking a peck on the cheek won’t ruin your big day.

​​​​​​​4. Couples Need to Register for Household Items 

You probably don’t need three vacuums and multiple silverware sets, but that’s what you may get if you create a wedding registry for household items. Nowadays, many couples ask friends and family to put forth money to cover their expenses for the honeymoon or start a pool to help them pay for renovations at home.
