The Dress Code Myth

The Pearl Myth
According to the good luck version if a bride wears pearl then the pearls take her tears and she have a happy married life. But the bad luck version is pearls denote the tears of the bride which she will shed after her marriage.
The Position Myth
It is said that the bride should be on the left side on the groom so that the sword arm of the groom is free and he can protect her.
