Yes, it’s just a day like any other.  I’m not superstitious at all and wouldn’t think twice about it.

Right now 20 seems a lot more unlucky than 13.

Seriously though, it doesn’t matter. I’d pick the date that works best. Dates don’t hold any special power.

I know someone who got married on Friday the 13th in December. They’re still happily married and it’s been twenty three years if I’m counting right.  I don’t believe in superstitious stuff like that.

We were married in October on Friday the 13th. I did it on purpose 😆 some guests received comments about “who gets married on Friday the 13th?” But the guests never asked us.

I had small black cat charms on the tables as a subtle reminder that it was Friday the 13th. I didn’t want it to be an in your face Friday the 13th wedding, I wanted people to be like… that’s RIGHT, it IS Friday the 13th!

Personally I think it’s a lucky day because everyone thinks it’s unlucky 🤷🏻‍♀️

The day went smoothly, BUT Thursday the 12th we received a call ON THE WAY to the rehearsal that my step daughter just totaled my husbands car 😩

One of my family members got married on Friday the 13th on purpose. It’s not a big deal in my opinion. 🙂

If a Friday the 13th date was available, I’d snatch it up right away…I’d fight you for it!

@futuremrsblair:  I’m not superstitious, but when I got married in October 2017, venues were pushing me to take Friday the 13th, and it would have been cheaper, because it was a Friday and because no one else wanted the date. I didn’t want to get married on a Friday to prevent people from having to take an extra day off work, especially with some guests that had to travel, and I also didn’t want to have our wedding date be a Friday the 13th. We ended up getting married on Saturday, the 14th.

@futuremrsblair:  Sure, why not? I actually think it’s kinda cool and I would go for it.
