Ceremony and Vow Ideas

Is this true?

I recently was told that my FI and I have to be pronounced man and wife while the minute hand on the clock is going up? Has anyone heard of this? I was also told that I have to walk down the aisle while the minute hand on the clock is going up too. Is this true? I have never heard of these two things and I don''t know if this is true. I hope someone can help me with these two questions.

Re: Is this true?

  • They're not true as in "Your marriage is invalid if it doesn't happen," but some people believe these things.  Just like a bride needs to carry "something old, new, borrowed and blue."

    Feel free to not follow it.
  • If this is true then you and your new husband are going to have to book it back up the aisle since you will only have 30 seconds to do so.

  • I have never heard of this particular tradition. I would think as pp have said, it is similar to something borrowed, blue, etc. I would think you are fine to not follow this. No worries

    <div>Minute hand, not second hand:-)     The minute hand travels up for 30 minutes of every hour (from half-past to on-the-hour).  </div>

  • This sounds like a nice way of keeping people's ceremonies under 30 minutes. 
  • Thanks Ladies!!

  • I hadn't heard about being pronounced based on the clock, but tradition here states that funerals start on the hour and weddings start on the half hour.  Minute hand going down for a sad event and going up for a happy one.  My wedding starts at 4:30. 
  • I've almost never gone to a wedding that didn't start on the halfhour - and that is so the clock hand is on the upward sweep as the ceremony begins.  So these weddings start at 1:30 or 7:30 or something ":30"

    I have more recently been to a couple weddings that start on the hour so these weddings start at 3 or 5 or 7 or whatever the hour is.

  • @retread.  Don't you just love the south and their crazy superstitions?  My family is from Ireland but have lived in the south so it gets even worse with us. 

    And now that I think about it I've never been to a wedding that didn't start at something:30 and a funeral that started at anything but the hour, never something:30. 

    Never really thought about it until now
