OMG, we literally can't even with some people! While we'll let legitimate reasons — like parents asking you to pick a different date due to a vacation they've already planned a year in advance — slide, we just can't get over asking anyone to move their wedding date due to your own silly superstitions or a kid's soccer game.
We wish we were making up these requests for a wedding date change, but no, they're for real...
Youth Sports > Your Wedding
"My sister asked if we could change our wedding, which was a few hours away from where she lives, to a Friday or Sunday night because her kids play in youth sports on Saturdays. Mind you, the kids are little so it's not like they're on super competitive teams and couldn't possibly miss a game for their freaking aunt's wedding. So insane! Needless to say, she didn't get her way." —Melissa
A Work Trip
"I could kind of understand if it was a super important work trip happening the weekend of the wedding, but my friend seriously wanted us to consider changing our wedding date due to a conference she had the following week. Her reasoning? She would be way too tired to travel after the festivities." —Keira
A Birthday Conflict
"My friend was super pissed when she found out our wedding date was a few days after her birthday. She wanted us to change it to the weekend before or after just so she could throw her own party. We didn't, and she didn't come to the wedding. Not cool. I mean all her friends were there and there was free food and booze! We had even planned on having a small birthday cake for her too. Her loss." —Stacy
A Birthday Request
"My little brother actually wanted us to move our wedding date around so that it was on his 21st birthday! Obviously we didn't, but my husband and I still laugh about it until this day. Fortunately, he was 21 by the time we got hitched so he fully enjoyed himself at the open bar." —Becs
"My uncle is sort of wacky and is really, really superstitious about everything. So he pitched a fit when he found out our wedding date would fall on the 13th of the month and insisted we just had to change it. Um, no. Turns out, we're still going strong almost 10 years later." —Gina
A Potential Baby
"My friend told me her and her husband were going to start trying for a baby, and if they conceived that month then she'd be giving birth on my wedding date and obviously wouldn't be there. So she wanted me to push the date up several months so she'd for sure be able to make it. While I appreciate her wanting to attend so bad, there's no way of knowing how long it would take her to conceive!" —Meghan
"My very Catholic grandparents were concerned that my wedding fell during Lent because then they wouldn't be able to drink, so they wanted me to move my date to before or after to accommodate them. I had to gently let them down and tell them it wasn't happening." —Shelby
