Marry in April when you can...

I've seen this rhyme on a few other wedding forums and blogs so thought it would be nice to add it to mine. Apparently the legend below describes how each month could have some bearing on the fate of the marriage:

Married when the year is new, he'll be loving, kind and true,
When February birds do mate, you wed nor dread your fate,

If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you'll know,
Marry in April when you can, joy for Maiden and for Man,
Marry in the month of May, and you'll surely rue the day,
Marry when June roses grow, over land and sea you will go,
Those who in July do wed, must labor for their daily bred,
Whoever wed in August be, many a change is sure to see,
Marry in September's shrine, your living will be rich and fine,
If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry,
If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember,
When December snows fall fast, marry and true love will last.

Seems we made a good choice with our wedding month without even realising it (although we were told that May was unlucky), however not so with the day of the week (Saturday):

Monday for health,
Tuesday for wealth,
Wednesday best of all,
Thursday for losses,
Friday for crosses,
Saturday for no luck at all.
