I dont think that means sports are coming first. I think he knows that if it is a college football day you wont get all the attention you deserve. Everyone loves college football, everyone loves weddings. Why chose between the 2 on the same day!  I think he is trying to show you some love πŸ™‚

We scheduled ours for 5 days after the BSC championship game.  I’m really hoping that Bama doesn’t win another one because I really don’t want to hear about it at my wedding from my father’s sister (War Eagle!).  Unfortunately, we did pick a day that is the first non-wildcard game of the NFL playoffs.  If the Packers are playing then they will be on at the reception.  I will be super pissed if the Packers play in Atlanta again on that day, because I’d want to be there wedding dress and all.  I just didn’t want to push it off until after the Super Bowl because that’s about the time that my BFF and my cousin’s kids start spring baseball/softball.

Yep — Fall was completely ruled out. And we’re working around his school schedule, so our only options were early summer or next Chrismas. I voted early summer, I don’t want to wait any longer than I have to!

I planned my wedding on a Thursday just so I didn’t interfere with any football. Just my luck though my Future In-Laws want it on a Saturday…that’s not happening. So we compromised for a Sunday. My whole bridal party is going to the football game the day before but my FH is sitting on one side and I’m sitting on the other. Wreck ‘Em Tech!

My wedding was this weekend, and we chose February specifically because there was no college football going on, and it’s after the superbowl.

It was a joint decision, I’m just as big on football as DH, and he loves telling people why the wedding is/was in February.

My comment refers to Australian Rules football – we wanted to schedule outside of footy season but my uni timetable just made it impossible. AFL goes from March – September and during October and November, I’ll be graduating from my teaching degree, going to job interviews etc and I’d just be too busy. Anything after November was out because it’s just too hot (December = Aussie summer).

So our wedding is smack in the middle of footy season – which is not great considering we met through our love of footy, we watch every single game, and Fiance and many of our guests actually *play* football! However, neither of our teams (Richmond and North Melbourne) actually have a game on the day of the wedding. Our friends who play footy are willing to skip the game, but one guy is the captain and the coach would crack it if he missed it, so he’s coming to the reception only.

  • Wedding: October 2013

When I got engaged last June, I knew I wanted an October or November wedding because the weather is so nice in Alabama during that time of year (I wanted an outdoor ceremony).  Summer is too hot, winter is so dreary, and spring is so unpredictable. But, there is nothing more important than college football here in Alabama and most of my family are die-hard Bama fans. I tried scheduling around both UA and AU games to please family, but I finally got tired of working around what other people wanted. My FH kept telling me to pick whatever date I wanted and if people didn’t show up to our wedding because they couldn’t miss one stupid game, then f*ck them because they obviously don’t care about us.

Our wedding is set for Oct 26, 2013… same day as the UA-TN game and I don’t really care about AU’s game. I’m still worried people won’t show up or will leave right after the ceremony to go watch the games. I really don’t want a tv there because the day is about my FH and me and not about some stupid football game. I guess we’ll see who really cares about us come October!

Football… not my thing. Now hockey, I love πŸ™‚

This is funny – it just occured to me a few days ago that the Stanley Cup Finals could still be going on during our wedding in June. (Usually they last for about a month?). Although I do not want anyone watching tv during the wedding reception, I probably would have the DJ update the score throughout the evening. What can I say? I love my hockey!

A small part of me secretly hopes the playoffs last until June, and that the local team is still playing. It’ll make the music I’m using for our wedding party entrance to the reception even more fun πŸ™‚
