Friday the 13th: Top 5 Wedding Superstitions

| | 1 Comment

Some would say that today is full of back luck and superstition, but here at the Lesner Inn all we can see is blue skies and gorgeous weddings. To settle your nerves, we’ve picked the top 5 wedding superstitions to put their origins to rest.

5. Wearing a Veil

Nowadays, not all Brides choose to wear a veil, but for those who do… it comes from Roman tradition. It was thought that by wearing a veil, the bride would be guarded from evil spirits. 

4. Crying on your Wedding Day

This is thought to be good luck for a marriage!  The idea is to cry all your tears out so that once you are married there will be no tears left to cry, and that you will live a life of joy.

3. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

Everyone has heard this old rhyme- but do you know what it means? Something old represents the bride’s past and something new signifies the couples happy future. Whatever you choose to borrow should come from someone who is happily married in the hope that their joy will rub off on you. Lastly, the something blue represents fidelity and love.

2. Rain on your Wedding Day

Here in Virginia Beach the weather can often be unpredictable, but don’t fret! It is thought that rain on your wedding day can actually bring you fertility and cleansing. This might be comforting to the bride with weather woes.

1. Seeing Each Other Before “I Do”

Our #1 superstition is equally upheld as it is disregarded. It used to be thought that if the bride and groom saw each other before their ceremony that they would get cold feet and back out. Often times now though, many couples will meet beforehand to have a private moment together and take pictures of the special moment. However you chose to do it though is up to you!

So on this Friday the 13th, which notorious wedding superstitions will you embrace and avoid? Let us know in the comments below!

    ENTIRE VENUE

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
