Another superstitious wedding date is the Ides of March. This isn’t just a made up tale from a Shakespeare novel, but a real bad luck day. Many fear the “Ides” because it was the day that Roman leader Julius Caesar was assassinated. March 15th is now globally known as a day of superstition and try to not plan a wedding on this day, especially if you are Roman! Previously this date was just simply known to the Roman’s as a night where a full moon will be present. Unfortunately for the next three years the Ides of March fall on weekend days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The last superstitious wedding day is a Leap Year. Some may think this is actually a lucky day because it is so unique and only happens once every four years, but in reality it is considered bad luck to tie the knot this day! Luckily the next leap year isn’t until 2016!
