Rains On Your Wedding Day
Superstitions say that if it rains on your wedding day, good luck will come to you and your spouse's married lives.
Some say that it is because a knot that becomes wet is extremely hard to untie – therefore, when you "tie the knot" on a rainy day, your marriage is supposedly just as hard to unravel!
Different cultures give rain other representations.
One of these representations is fertility. Fertility, as we know it pertains to the ability of someone or something to reproduce; this means rain on wedding days is seen as good luck because people believe that the couple who gets married will be going to get blessed with children. This belief came about since rain ultimately waters the ground and lends to fertility, thus allowing the growth of plants and vegetation.
Next on the list of rainy wedding day superstitions is cleansing. It is common knowledge that water is used for cleansing hence the birth of this belief. Rain on your wedding day signifies two people's pure and clean marriage.
Another superstitious significance of a rainy wedding day is unity. As we mentioned before that a wet knot is difficult to untie, which is why they say that "tying the knot" having a wedding on a rainy day means strong unity.
These superstitions might push you to schedule your wedding on a rainy day, not on cliched, sunny day wedding ceremonies.
