There is a great amount of folklore and superstition associated with marriage . .
Many superstitions are so ingrained that they have become a regular part of wedding traditions: The reasons why a bride wears white and a veil, why the groom carries the bride over the threshold, why have a best man and bridesmaids, why we still decorate the getaway vehicle with noisy items and why the bride should have something old, new, borrowed and blue. They all come from wedding folklore and superstition. And many involve good (or bad) luck.
Do you know someone who could benefit from some special luck on their wedding day – or some lucky gifts for the wedding party or guests?

The groom is supposed to carry a small mascot or charm in his pocket on the wedding day for good luck. The best man should pay the fee of the minister in an odd amount of money in order to bring luck to the newly-wed couple. In some parts of the UK it’s also traditional for the bride to place a new coin in her shoe for good luck. Ivy in a wedding bouquet, assures luck, lilies signify purity, apple blossoms, better things to come, and myrtle is supposed to bring good fortune. Egyptian women are known to pinch the bride on her wedding day for luck and in Holland a pine tree is planted outside the newlyweds’ home for good luck and fertility.
Wedding favours are small gifts which the bride and groom give to their guests during a wedding ceremony or wedding reception to pass on their good luck. The tradition of giving wedding favours dates back many centuries to when European aristocrats (originally the French) would give a gift of a bonbonniere to their wedding guests to take home – a small box that contained sugar confectionery. In the thirteenth century, almonds coated with sugar, known as confetti, were introduced and over time, replaced the bonbonniere. Traditionally, five Jordan almonds were presented in the confection box or wrapped in elegant fabric to represent fertility, longevity, wealth, health and happiness. By giving these favours such as lucky charms to their guests at the reception, the bride and groom are passing on their good luck, making perfect traditional keepsakes for all the wedding guests.
Our lucky charms come from Almeria in southern Spain close to where the original Indalos were discovered. This is a region of ancient culture believed to be the origin of the Neolithic civilisation that spread up into the whole of northern Europe between 4000 and 2000 BC – and the beginning of a megalithic era that was one of the great periods of Spanish and European history and included the construction of the mystical monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury in Britain. Cave paintings of Indalo-type shapes mingle with representations of suns, spirals, animals and labyrinths, each with their own mystical and esoteric meaning.
