- Wedding: August 2008
Our Wedding date we is for August 8th 2008. We are so excited!!! Here are some interesting number superstitions:
If you want your wedding ceremony to be on the most prosperous day of the year, set the date for August 8, 2008, or 8/8/08. In the Chinese culture, the number 8 stands for prosperity or sudden fortune. With three 8’s in the date, you can expect three times the prosperity, which is a great way to start a marriage.
Another significant notion of 8/8/08 is that when an 8 is turned on its side, it becomes the symbol of infinity. Many couples appreciate this meaningful message because it symbolizes perfect union between male and female.
Friday weddings are the new trend!
Although the 8th of August falls on a Friday, don’t let that stop you. While getting married on Fridays wasn’t the norm fifty years ago, it’s certainly becoming more mainstream. Friday weddings are often much less expensive than Saturday weddings.
Especially since the average wedding will cost $27,000 this year, couples want their ceremony and reception held at their favorite spot. This means moving the date from the traditional Saturday to a Friday. Not only will your wedding date be lucky, you’ll save some money on the Friday packages.
Think of it this way: why not give your friends and family an awesome place to party. Many brides figure that since the bars during Happy Hour are packed, they might as well offer a reason and location for the party.
Another plus of an 8/8/08 wedding is that August is the month most people get off work to take vacations. The bonus is that your guests will have the rest of their weekend to enjoy.
