Haha, so weird.  I would never assume that an Aug 13 wedding was booked due to Twilight or Twilight-themed unless the person was EXTREMELY obsessed with the books/movies.  I can see how it would annoy you.

Ok, I am a Twilight fan, Saw Eclipse three times, and have read all four books. To be honest with you, I wouldn’t even have remembered the wedding date if you hadn’t said it! LOL. That just goes to show how obsessed YOUR friends are! LOL. Let them joke about it, it will definitely get old in a few weeks *hopefully*. I am sure all the other August 13th brides are getting the same thing! Make a joke out of it such as “Yeah, I guess you can say that since I will be marrying my Edward (sweet romantic guy) on that day. Jealous?”.

I have managed to completely avoid the whole Twilight thing. Haven’t read or picked up a book or seen any of the movies. I assume this is because I’m 28 (and in Australia, although there are plenty of Twilight fans here too). So no, I would never think of attaching August 13 to Twilight ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve read the books and seen the movies and wouldn’t have been able to tell you the date Bella & Edward got married to save myself! I’m sure it’ll all blow over and in the mean time at least you can console yourself with your Edward look-a-like FI! Lucky you!

If you and your friends or wedding guests are in the movie’s target age groups (13-18 & 18-24 year olds), then you’re going to get some flack about the date.  You will especially get flack if your guests know that you like the books & movies.  That being said, try to let it roll off your back…by the time the next movie comes out (Nov 18 2011; yeah, I’m 33 & I’m a fan) your wedding will be (with all due respect) “old news”.  And at least you won’t be accused of copying the actual style of Edward & Bella’s wedding, since the movie comes out after your wedding.

Have fun with your wedding planning & try to forget the people that annoy you.

Ok so i have to admit this is kinda funny. Cuz it just seems so SILLY!!!!! I wouldn’t even worry about it! You should just tell your friend you invited those actors and you’ll hook her up with them =].

Honestly, this just shows that these people are more obsessed with the series than you are, and honestly, that they are pretty immature. Just rise above it and be strong!!

Your friends sound obsessed. I mean, I’m 32 & I like Twilight but I would never have remembered the wedding date.

Tell your friend she has to come to the wedding dressed as a werewolf. And for accuracy, she will have to catch her own food.

I think it says more about how much THEY’RE into the books more than you! I’ve read the books but in no way, shape, or form would I (or most readers) ever remember that!

What in the world?! I love the books and movies, and I had no idea their wedding was on August 13th…how do these people even know that? And what an insane leap of logic to assume that you picked the date because of Twilight! Very, very strange!

I agree, very weird.  I am obsessed with the books and movies, too, but this is crazy!  Are you doing anything else Twilight-themed?  Even if you knew August 13th was Bella and Edward’s wedding date, and picked August 13th for your own wedding b/c of that, I don’t think those comments would be justified unless you were somehow incorporating other Twilight elements into your ceremony/reception.
