Dress To Impress

Wedding Couple in The Bromley Court Hotel GardenThe actual act of getting married is, as I have discovered, overflowing with pitfalls, omens and warnings. The more I read about the subject, the more I think that, if any brides or grooms were to see the endless list of does and don’ts and what some of their actions could result in –well the wedding would be off!

For any brides out there who is a really talented seamstress and is about to make her own wedding dress, just remember this little snippet:

The brides should never make her own dress because for every stitch of the wedding dress the brides sews herself she will shed one tear during her marriage.

So now it’s off to the dressmaker or wedding boutique for you! However, don’t think you are in the clear yet, the colour of the dress is of course important but looking at this list there seems to be some shades that are best avoided!

  • Married in white – you have chosen right.
  • Married in blue – your lover is true.
  • Married in pink – your fortunes will sink.
  • Married in Green – you will not long be seen.
  • Married in red – you will wish you were dead.
  • Married in yellow – ashamed of the fellow.
  • Married in brown – you will live out of town.
  • Married in gray – you will live far away.
  • Married in black – you will wish you were back.

Once you have chosen your dress you will of course start to think about your jewellery, pearls are always flattering but, and yes there is another but, for some people, pearls represent future tears and are not a good sign. However, to others, the wearing of pearls takes the place of the brides’s real tears (heaven helps us), so by wearing pearls she is ensuring a happy, tear-free wedded life.

So if a brides does not want to spend, her married life in floods of tears all she has to do is to follow the above happy cheery advice, or alternatively take the whole thing with a pinch of salt. Oh no, did I mention salt?  Well that’s a whole new subject entirely!
