Based on the length of engagement we want (and the fact we aren’t engaged yet!) we think our wedding date will fall in the year 2013.
I am not particularly superstitious but I know lots of people are and would be really worried about getting married in 2013. Does anyone plan to have a 2013 wedding? Or has anyone intentionally pushed their dates up or back to avoid 2013?
I wonder if it will have any affect on the wedding industry as a whole. Maybe we can get some good deals from our local vendors!

I don’t think it will be a big deal, and I certainly don’t think it will affect pricing. I’m not engaged yet either, and I’m hoping for a 2012 wedding, but if we did have to push it back to 2013 the date wouldn’t bother me. I’ve always thought 13 was actually kind of a cool number.

We’ve actually intentionally pushed our wedding from 2012 to 2013 due to us both pursing graduate school and being able to financially pay of the wedding in cash.
To tell you the truth, because we are waiting til June 28th, 2013 our wedding first off is being held on a friday-and fridays– majority of venues gives you discounts–secondly we’ve already put our deposit down for our wedding photographer (We saved a lot of money and was locked into 2011 pricing!! and we are putting our deposit down for our wedding venue next month which the manager is willing to lock in 2011 pricings as well for us. So all in all, you have some wiggle room to play with.
Good luck! Hope this helps a bit.

We are so not superstitious that we set our date as 13/07/13 (Canadian so I put the date before the month lol). We thought for those worried about our “luck” that the seven would cancel out the bad juju of the thirteens.
I’ve known three couples that married on 07-07-07 that are already divorced, so I’m not worried about my tricky date 🙂

@xx_ambyrr_xx: Your looking at one lady who intentionally picked 2013 because of school, work, money and time (all of which are currently in short supply…except for school :P)
We are also going to be booking our venue right after our engagement (occuring soon) so we can hold onto the current pricing, and secure our date

Oh, I could not push my wedding back a year just because of the date. I had a hard time with the length of my nine-month engagement! 🙂 but we are getting married on a Friday, the 13th and we’re not scared! no biggie 🙂
