Wedding superstitions

There are dozens of wedding-related superstitions largest of which is that it fills you day after the wedding: the belief that you had the best wedding ever.
We asked friends, we looked for the Internet "and interviewed" three black cats and ugly witch, to bring you the complete guide to a successful wedding, according to the theory of superstition.
And do not say we did not warn you!
