Maybe it’s superstition or simply a fad, but bridal couples are determined to scoop up wedding dates where the numbers seem to add up to something very special.
Although dates like 7/7/07, 8/8/08 and 10/10/10 are bygones, couples aren’t deterred from looking to the future for that special day to call their own. Some upcoming dates that are undoubtedly going to be busy for professionals in the wedding industry are 12/11/10 and 9/10/11.
Some wedding dates are chosen without really taking others into consideration. Sure, it’s your day, and it can be whenever you want it, but take a look at these dates to avoid and a brief explanation of why.
Religious & Cultural Holidays – (e.g., Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa). Consider your guests who often have pre-set plans for these holidays, making it a hassle for them to attend your wedding.
Major Sporting Events – (e.g., Super Bowl, World Series, World Cup, Final Four, Olympics). Sports fans, as a general rule, are die-hards. To avoid disgruntled people overall, avoid major sporting events.
Miscellaneous Days – (e.g., Daylight Savings Time, Friday the 13th, April Fool’s Day). Weddings planned on or around these days are pretty much asking for mayhem. Expect late (or early) guests, the superstition factor, and suffering at the hands of pranksters throughout your wedding celebration.
Regardless of the date you choose for your wedding, it is a very good idea to send save-the-dates well in advance to help those invited plan to attend.
