Istanbul, Turkey hosts more weddings than any other city in the world. Las Vegas is second in the world - not just the U.S. - with 114,000 weddings annually.

Good luck ~ Bad luck
In times past...it was bad luck if a young man encountered a blind person, a pregnant woman, or a monk while on his way to propose. On the other hand, if he were to happen upon a pigeon, wolf or goat, he would expect extremely good fortune in the marriage.

It is believed to be bad luck for the bride to wear her completed outfit before the wedding day. As an extension to this, some brides leave a final stitch on the dress undone until the day of the wedding for good luck.

Seeing a lamb, frog, spider, black cat, or rainbows on the way to the ceremony is believed to be a sign of good luck!
