The bride is said to be doomed if she wears her complete wedding outfit before the big day. The consequences of such an action can lead to heartbreak and tragedy.
It was believed that the veil would disguise the bride and help to hide her from evil spirits that were jealous of happy people, and therefore, might do her harm.
The dress must never be stained with blood.
It is unlucky to go shopping for wedding rings on a Friday, due to the bad luck associated with that day (Friday the 13th).
