@mousepeach: We picked June 1 because we liked the way it sounded. It was the first decision we made after our engagement. We looked up the 2013 calendar and both zeroed in (hehehe, number pun!) on it immediately. Your future husband is smart, though – I imagine it will sneak up on us. My birthday is also in June, so my husband has no excuse to forget!

It really could matter less to me. I did see something on TV that indicates people view Even numbers as more “feminine” and odd numbers as more “masculine” and that subconsciously people prefer even numbers over odd numbers. Weird.

I just wanted the overall date to look good. We ended up choosing 2-23-13.

In Japanese culture, when it comes to wedding, people want odd numbers for everything. This is because odd numbers are not easily devided whereas even numbers are easily divided. If you ever invited to a Japanese wedding and asked cash for a gift, please do not bring even numbers like $200. That’s like you’re wishing the couple to divorce asap! It’s a bad bad luck yall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Honey-Bee: I justified our date to myself the exact same way, but the numbers were different! July 6, 2013… 7+6=13!
My Darling Husband thinks I’m crazy because there are ‘good’ and ‘bad’ numbers, and one day I spent a full fifteen minutes explaining the ‘rules’ to him…odds are bad unless they’re a square, primes are the worst, except for 5 and under, squares are best, especially if they’re even, etc. Etc.
…dear God, it’s a wonder he married me at all.

- Wedding: October 2014 - Legare Waring House
We are both really superstitious, so actually put off the wedding until 2014, not 13…and it’s 10.10.
So, yes. I have a lot of issues with numbers.
@mvg120: I know someone who did 06/07/13 – which also happens to be my birthday (06/07/88) 🙂

@Honey-Bee: It’s the default one – I just haven’t changed mine yet. 😛

@Pisces: Ah ha! Thanks for filling me in, my default was a bee I thought

@Honey-Bee: Yeah, I did. Fiance didn’t want to get married in an uneven year and I said “too effing bad!” And then explained the reasoning. He’s cool with our date now 😀

I cared more about what month it would be in because I like the sound of some months over the others. Never thought I’d actually get married in February. Originally we were looking at February 16, but the 14 ended up working out much better logistically, and I thought it would be cute to get married on Valentine’s Day. We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day traditionally in my culture/religion, so in my cirlces there aren’t that many people who have this anniversary. And since we don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s in the cliche/typical way, I enjoy seeing all of the romantic decorations because it puts a little spring in my anniversary step. The only downside is just planning in advance if there’s something in particular we want to do.

I like even numbers for wedding dates I guess. I know the wedding date on my profile isn’t correct (didn’t mean to put the wrong date!), but I got married during an even numbered month on an even day, but an uneven year!
Maybe it comes from being born during an odd month on an odd day in an odd year? Makes me feel a bit uneven.
