Though summer season season marriage period may be at its optimum, these days will be especially silent for marriage providers like Deadly Tempos, a organization based in Atl that provides professional mix DJ solutions in the South east.
That's because partners are reluctant to begin their marriage on Saturday the Thirteenth, major many companies to offer special discounts to convenience their superstitions.
Kra Riddell, market administrator for Deadly Tempos, said she has no activities organized these days, not even an wedding or wedding. In fact, Riddell said, Saturday the Thirteenth seems to consistently impact common kindness companies in Atl.
"I think the South east is very irrational," said Riddell, who has proved helpful for the organization since 2010.
Although there are a lot of customer events organized these days, the groups and ambiance activities for which Deadly Tempos provides solutions also silent down when Saturday the Thirteenth comes around.
"It's very simple in the groups. I feel like people stay inside," Riddell said.
Ridell lately became involved, and though she is not irrational she said she "definitely would not get wedded on Saturday the Thirteenth."
"I'm not a big believer in seo, but I don't want anything to help it," she said with a chuckle.
Anja Winikka, website administrator of marriage website TheKnot.com, said Saturday the Thirteenth is not "couples' time frame for the marriage of choice."
"Choosing a time frame for the marriage is important from the beginning and they want it to be special to them," she said.
Fridays are not as sought after as Saturdays for weddings, though Fridays and Sundays are becoming more popular as vendors offer discounts to couples who choose to wed on those off-peak days.
But Friday weddings appear to be significantly infrequent on Friday the 13th.
According to The Knot's annual weddings survey, there will be 2,845 weddings today, compared to 3,111 last Friday. There will be 4,190 next Friday, July 20 and 3,407 weddings on Friday, July 27. However, there will be a whopping 17,886 weddings on Saturday.
In April, when the last Friday the 13th occurred, the unpopularity of Friday the 13th was even more apparent.
On Friday, April 13, there were 1,764 weddings, only slightly higher than the Friday of the previous week, 1,449. That was Easter and Passover weekend, a typically unpopular wedding time.
