Wedding day is an important event for every newlywed. When concluding a marriage, a person asks himself: «Will family life be long, happy?». Such controversial issues are fueled by a multitude of signs that brides generally believe in. Beliefs regarding wedding shoes are especially exciting: the signs that accompany the bride’s shoes and the conditions for their proper choice are issues that are decided in the preparation for the wedding.
Signs when buying shoes
Acceptance associated with the purchase of shoes for the bride, a great many. In order not to get confused in them, we will divide them into two categories: according to style and color. These superstitions and traditions are worth knowing on the way to the clothing store so that you sift out the wrong shoes on the spot. Let's consider these signs in more detail..
The choice of style according to signs
- «No!» sandals. Future spouses will live in poverty, so to speak with «barefoot» legs. Even a small hole in a shoe is not welcome - happiness flows through it.
- «Yes!» closed shoes. This symbolizes the stable financial situation of family life, as well as the generosity of her husband. The family will be strong, happiness «won't run away», and the bride and groom will not part.
- «No!» fasteners and hooks. Shoes with clasps - to a family quarrel between husband and wife. Without fasteners - for quick and easy birth of children.
- One pair of shoes for the whole day. It is forbidden to change shoes during a wedding (usually in a restaurant the bride puts on a comfortable option with a lower heel). It’s better to immediately choose a comfortable heel while still in the store, otherwise family life will be «limp».
- Day of the week and the completion of the image. To successfully sign in the registry office, buy wedding shoes on Friday, walk in advance in them so that they are «worn out» - This is luck for the family. And do not look in the mirror in the entire outfit - such an omen to petty quarrels with your beloved.
Color wedding shoes and omens
Traditions say that the whole girl’s wedding outfit (dress, veil, gloves) should not match in color, especially shoes. For white or pastel tones, choose a dress in bright colors or models with colored elements, better than a saturated red shade. This color is considered protective and symbolizes that «the wall», which will protect your family union all your life. This superstition came from antiquity when instead of shoes, the bride and groom put on new red cloth boots, which promised a long and strong family life.
Heel related features
- Height. Shoes of the bride according to signs should be high-heeled. The higher it is, the more significant the girl will occupy in family life. However, do not choose too high a heel, because because of this, inequality of marriage is possible - someone will be more important.
- Sustainability. Wedding shoes with heels should be resistant. The emotional and psychological background of the family path will depend on this. Believe me, falling on a wedding day breaking a heel is a bad sign.
Stealing a shoe at a wedding is an old wedding tradition. At weddings, unmarried girls took shoes from the bride to measure. A friend whom she was just kept her, demanding a ransom from the groom. He paid as young as he could: fulfilled the conditions of the competitions, gave sweets, flowers or paid money. To conduct such a ceremony, which is a test of the future husband, follow this list of steps:
- Quietly take your shoe.
- Take responsibility for what is happening, then inform the facilitator (host).
- Discuss groom contests with him.
- Check the progress of the assignment by the groom, as well as the return of the shoes to the bride. The young man asks to return the shoe just like that - the sign says that he will be a stingy husband; pays with money or sweets, performs intricate competitive tasks - will be generous all family life.
Coin and shoes of the bride and groom
There is a sign at a wedding to use a coin for happiness, for wealth. So, in order for you to always be financially secure, think in advance about a round metal coin. A good omen is to wear wedding shoes with money. Put a coin under the heel: to the groom - for wealth, to the bride (under the right foot) - from the evil eye, temptation and temptation.
To marry without bad omens is the desire of every young girl. And wedding shoes are considered one of the important accessories for the future wife, not counting the engagement ring. Choose shoes for the bride according to those signs and rules that you believe in! In the case of an unpleasant incident regarding acceptance, any accident can be corrected, because parents and friends will always help in this. Have a happy wedding!
