Regardless of our individual beliefs there is still ‘something’ about Friday 13th. Even in this modern age, superstition surrounds anything to do with that date and a Friday 13th Wedding is not often welcomed.
There are many people who think it is unlucky, for all sorts of reasons. According to this BBC article, Friday is thought to be unlucky because it was the date of the Crucifixion. The “unlucky 13” came about because it includes the number of people present at the Last Supper or the number of witches to make a coven. But it was actually the Victorians who put the day Friday and the number 13 together.
So, is it unlucky? We don’t think so – and especially not if you’re planning a wedding. One of our lovely couples, who booked a Friday 13th Wedding at relatively short notice in 2016, found they had so much choice.
Venues and suppliers were more available and our couple had their wedding in the venue they wanted, with the suppliers they wanted, on the date they wanted!
Sending out their invitations brought an initial “Oh wow!” from their families and friends. But they all thought it was a great idea and the whole day was wonderful.
However, these dates are few and far between. Bookings at White Rose Ceremonies currently go into 2020 but none as yet fall on Friday 13th.
Here are Friday 13th Wedding dates for the next three years:
Friday 13th April 2018
Friday 13th July 2018
Then a huge gap of 15 months until…
Friday 13th September 2019
Friday 13th December 2019
Friday 13th March 2020
Friday 13th November 2020
So if you want a wedding that will be remembered for everything – including the date – a Friday 13th Wedding just might be right for you.
