Whether you are planning a traditional wedding or a traditional pagan handfasting as a witch you want to add a bit of magic to your special day. We got married in a pastor’s office in a Christian church but that did not stop me from working in a little wedding day magick.
The magick you work on your wedding day will follow your marriage, bless your children, and work in protection to help make your day wonderful.
Something new, something old, something borrowed, something blue…
This list of good luck charms comes from the Old English rhyme, “Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe” these good luck charms and a charm for prosperity have been adopted by everyone far and wide but is a wonderful and simple spell for blessing your marriage on your wedding day.
Soap protection spell for future children
Wear a bar of soap to use to protect future children that come of your marriage. Wash your babies with this soap or use it on your pregnant belly to protect your pregnancy when worry begins to kick in.
A travel-size bar of genital soap will fit perfectly in a pocket or even your bra. I had a tiny bar of Dove for peace in my marriage. That said I probably should have used a larger bar. I had not imagined having so many beautiful children in my life.
No one will blink an eye at a beautiful marriage candle modeled after a bride and groom. These candles come from voodoo traditions and make a great spell for your wedding day.
Carve your names into the back or bottom of the candle and allow it to burn during your reception. If you enjoy reading wax keep checking in on your candle so you can see how things are going to play out in your marriage.
You can dress your candle with oils to promote goals in your marriage. I always suggest a bit of cinnamon oil for passion and blessing your finances.
Flowers in your bouquet
The flowers in your bouquet can make for a wonderful magic spell These4 are all great choices for your wedding bouquet.
- White heather is a great option for protection and luck.
- Add holly and ivy to encourage blessings of protection and compatibility from Greek gods Dionysus and Ariadne
- Lavender to bring love and peace to your marriage.

For this spell wear a red garter with a piece of silver and charge it with the intention to protect. adding a drop or two of cinnamon essential oil is another great option.
