I usually don’t post rants or anything because by the time I get on here my momentary frustration is gone, but this is something that has gotten under my skin and I just need to vent!
Who here has read the Twlight Saga or even just watched the movies? Well personally I love them because I would love to be a famous novelist some day, so to me the author/her work is a bit of a role model sort to say…I also love it because of Edward (my FI looks alot like him 😛 ) hahaha But in all seriousness it’s great and I enjoy them alot.
Anyways, a few weeks back right after the last movie Eclipse came out, I had a lot of friends asking me “so you gonna have a Twilight Themed wedding?” or “Going Twilight to the extreme, eh?”, etc. At first I was like whatever, but it got to the point where I thought, either things are too coincidence or someone is spreading a rumor…mind you I haven’t seen the movie yet, let alone get to reading the third book. Well two weeks ago, I decided to go see the movie for the first time with a friend…I wanted to wait until most of the crowds were gone…that’s when I realised what happened. The date that Bella and Edward picked for their wedding was August 13th!! I actually thought it was pretty cool that, that ended up happening that way but since the movie came out the comments have gotten worse by the week.
We are not by any means changing the date obviously that is completely out of the question in every way possible and I’m assumming in a few months this will all blow over and no one will even remember but in the mean time, it’s starting to p*ss me off a whole bunch! …it got to the point where I flipped out at a friend tonight after saying “Well if you’re choosing August 13th, then you better have all the actors at you wedding, let alone Jacob and Edward at your bachlorette party” IT’S A MOVIE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!! I of course apologized to her after I calmed down but that was enough the make me snap a little.
Anyways sorry about having to listen to my rant…any brides who are have August 13th as their wedding date, have you gotten any of this? Or is Twilight so over-blown here that it’s just me Ugh!

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 🙂

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 =].

Oh, there’s a spoiler for people who haven’t read the books or seen the movies yet! 😉

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.

Ugh thanks ladies, I honestly thought I was gonna go crazy! I’m not nearly as mad about it as I was earlier and yeah I figure that it will all blow over in the next little while. I’ve got a pretty stressful life at the moment (lost my job, etc.) so I guess these little comments are just enough the set me off but oh well, my head is clear and I’ll just laugh ’em off now 🙂

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!

- Wedding: January 2011 - Vintage Villas
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.
