More Wedding Dates To Avoid In 2017

Major Sporting Events

More than likely, some people that you invite to your wedding will be big sports fan. Therefore, you might want to reconsider getting married the day of a major sporting event. Your better option would be to leave these dates open for the bachelor party. Below you’ll find the dates of these sporting events so you can avoid them:

  • Super Bowl Sunday – February 5, 2017, in Houston, TX
  • March Madness Final Four – Saturday, April 1, 2017 and Monday, April 3, 2017, in Glendale, AZ
  • 2017 Stanley Cup Finals – Occur in June, dates TBD
  • 2017 NBA Finals – Ends on Sunday, June 18
  • World Series – Begins on Oct. 24, 2017, remaining dates TBD

Dates That Are Unlucky

These consist of The Ides of March, which occur on Wednesday, March 15, 2017. This is in reference to when Julius Caesar was assassinated. Since then this date has been held in unlucky superstition.

Also, avoid Friday The 13th, considered by many to be the most unluckiest of days. The next one is October 13, 2017. The history behind this superstition has questionable origins, but an early 1900’s novel titled Friday, the Thirteenth is what made it popular in today’s times.
