Wedding Rhymes and Verses

Weddings have their unique set of traditional wedding rhymes attached to them and sometimes followed by brides and mothers of the brides with superstitious religiosity lest the most important day of their life turn to the worst day of all.

The most popular and oft-quoted of these wedding rhymes is a little verse: "Something old, something new, Something borrowed, something blue, And a lucky (silver) sixpence for your shoe."

This short wedding rhyme was first published in 1883 and ascribed to “some Lancashire friends.” The editors of the newspaper pointed out that a possible link to the belief that “something old” will protect a baby (first cited in 1659). A way for the bride to have “something old” on her wedding day is to wear old jewelry.

On “something new” there were no pre-twentieth century citations; however, according to USABride this signifies hope for the future. A good way to practice this is to buy a new pair of shoes or a new gown.

Having “something borrowed” during the wedding, such as a wedding dress previously worn by a joyous bride at her wedding, according to the 1883 newspaper, would be ‘lucky’ for the new bride.

Since the color blue has been associated with purity and loyalty, it is considered the fortunate color for couples. Wearing blue to express faithfulness can be traced back as far as a 1390 citation from Chaucer's "Squire's Tale."

The matter of having a “silver sixpence” tucked into one’s shoe is deemed lucky by marrying couples in old merry England. There's a 1774 record of a Scottish groom using a sixpence in his shoe to ward off evil from his rival, and an 1814 (Scottish again) citation that the bride "wear a piece of silver in one of her shoes" to ward evil from disappointed suitors. There are also 20th century citations to the bride’s walking on a gold coin to produce prosperity.

Other traditional wedding poems and rhymes include verses on the best day and month to marry as found in the following verses:

"The Best Day to Marry"
(Traditional Rhyme UK)

Monday for wealth, Tuesday for health,
Wednesday best day of all, Thursday for losses,
Friday for crosses, and Saturday no luck at all.

As for the time of year, the saying 'Marry in the month of May, and you'll live to rue the day' dates back to Pagan times. May, the start of summer, was dedicated to outdoor orgies (i.e. the summer festival Beltane), hardly the best way to begin married life! Queen Victoria is said to have banned her children from marrying in May, and 19th Century Brides refused to marry during May. The sun has always been associated with sexual stimulation and, therefore future fertility. In Scotland it was traditional for the Bride to 'walk with the sun', proceeding from east to west on the south side of the church and then circling the Church three times 'sunwise' for good luck.

"The Best Month to Marry"
(Traditional Rhyme UK)

Married in January's hoar and rime,
Widowed you'll be before your time.
Married in February's sleepy weather,
Life you'll tread in time together.
Married when March winds shrill and roar,
Your home will be on a distant shore.
Married beneath April's changing skies,
A chequered path before you lies.
Married when bees over May blossom flit,
Strangers around your board will sit.
Married in the month of roses-June,
Life will be one long honeymoon.
Married in July with flowers ablaze,
Bittersweet memories on after days.
Married in August's heat and drowse,
Lover and friend in your chosen spouse.
Married in September's golden glow,
Smooth and serene your life will go.
Married when leaves in October thin,
Toil and hardship for you gain.
Married in veils of November mist,
Fortune your wedding ring has kissed.
Married in days of December cheer,
Love's star shines brighter from year to year.

A traditional warning for the bride is presented in the following verse:

"Traditional Portent for the Bride" (UK)

Sweep the house with blossomed bloom in May
You'll sweep the head of the house away.

There is an old American belief as to what is in store for a couple who intend to marry. This can be affected by the day upon which they buy the engagement ring (thankfully they are all good outcomes):

Monday - A busy and exciting life.
Tuesday - A peaceful and contented life.
Wednesday - A good tempered relationship.
Thursday - Attainment of all you wish.
Friday - Hard work but reward in time.
Saturday - Will give you life with much pleasure.
Sunday - Traditionally this day was a time when shops were closed therefore advice does not currently exist.
