    OH MY GOD I hate odd numbers hate them! And prime numbers. I’m sure my wedding planner thought I was crazy when we were picking out a date! My Fiance also was like a date? A date is an important thing to obsess over? Ahahah yes honey yes it is!

    We chose an odd day on purpose, but it is my parents wedding anniversary.

    Yep! In fact, when we decided we’d push our wedding back from 2013 to 2014, I actually felt much better, hahah. 16-08-14. 🙂

    Omg! Yes yes a million times yes! I am a tad OCD aour my fave number has always been 17- wierd I know but it has gotten worse since our first date was 4-17-10 and he had no clue at that point but ever since we celebrate the 17th every month- sometimes big sometimes small but it turned from my thing to our thing… He proposed 7-17-13 and date is set for 10-17-14. It’s a Friday but is great because its a destination wedding so people have to take off if they are coming anyway. I hope any future babies fall in line… Lol I kid!

    @jadlnc:  I didn’t really care if it was odd or even.  I just made sure to pick a weekend end where it didn’t conflict with any other family events.

    Ours is 5-4-14.  Not of any numerical importance.

    I’m definitely not a math loving person, but I do love numbers. I generally relate all numbers in some way or another to something I find important or sentimental. In general, I gravitate toward odd numbers (my favorite being 19 – my birth date; I also like 3 and 9). However, our wedding date (October 12, 2012) is even, which was intentional. Fall is both DH’s and my favorite season, and ever since I was little I wanted a fall wedding, so October was the way to go. The reason we chose the 12th was because it lands exactly a week in-between DH’s and my birthday (his is the 5th, and mine the 19th).

    Also, despite our wedding date being even, the month, date and year can be reduced to odd numbers…October (10th month) 1+0=1, the date (12th) 1+2=3, and the year (2012) 2+0+1+2=5… Numerologically, it would all add to 9.

    I hadn’t thought about it odd v. even, but I do care about the numbers of the date!  I wanted our anniversary BADLY!! May 25, 2014, or 5/25! 5×5 is 25.  My birthday is 5/5 so I am prone to loving 5’s.  BUT, that didn’t work out bc my sister is getting married on 5/10 (also a good date).  THEN, we looked at 11/1/14.  I liked all the 1’s, but it is already booked!  Sigh, now we are thinking about 11/9/14… I wish I liked the numbers more!

    • Wedding: February 2014

    I wanted to be married February 29th, but I’m tired of waiting. We’re doing it February 28th since there isn’t a leap year soon enough. I would have prefered an odd number, but it’s not the biggest deal.

    Haha, it doesn’t bother me at all. But my sister married a Chinese man, and she had to take Chinese numerology into account when choosing a wedding date: No dates with 4 in the number (4, 14, or 24), and no multiples of 4. They ended up being married on a Sunday because it was the only way to get a decent venue with no taboo numbers!

    One of the first things my Fiance and I did after we got engaged was pick our date. For some reason, I just really liked 6/21/14.

    I am weird about numbers. One of the reasons we didn’t get married this year is because neither of us like the number 13. I do prefer even numbers with the exception of 1 and 5. (that’s why I don’t mind the date we’re getting married – the 21st) 3, 7, and 9 are my least favorite numbers for whatever reason!

    And as embarassing as this is to admit, and I would never tell anyone, but I don’t want to have children born in 2017 or 2019 because I don’t like the number 7 or 9. Ridiculous… I know!

    I’m so happy to have company in this!  My favorite number is 6, but I managed to find a date I liked without a 6 in it.  It’s 10-4-2014.  However…

    10 – 4 = 6

    and

    10 + 4 = 14 

    (This was important to me, as was the fact that this is the anniversay of me asking Fiance out.)

    The sum of the month and day is significant because when trying on dresses I combined the 7th and 10th, which turned out to be the 17th I tried on!  (7 + 10 = 17)

    Odd, but more specifically prime… a bit extreme I admit, but I was born on a prime date, and have always loved prime numbers. If my SO and I get married around the time we’ve been talking it will be 2017, a prime year… and the next isn’t until 2027, but if it didn’t happen that year I wouldn’t freak out. It’s not like a number you have to constantly repeat.

    I absolutely couldn’t care less about this! Glad your date worked out for you, though.
