How much do you buy into this wedding superstition ?
This wedding superstition follows the same principal as “don’t count your chickens before they hatch”! This old wedding myth says that using your shower and wedding gifts before the wedding day is inviting bad luck and bad “juju” to your wedding and marriage. While this sounds like a fairly understandable “don’t jinx it” approach, most etiquette experts say you can ignore this one and start using your gifts! Especially if you’ve already publicly opened them at a shower and sent thank you notes.
Are you waiting to use your shower and wedding gifts until after the wedding day to avoid jinxing it? Or are you putting those early presents to good use?
