Marrying on the Half Hour Superstition

This afternoon a wedding booked for next January at a ceremony start time of 6:30pm.  I found it kind of odd, because 6pm or 7pm on the hour is typically more popular.  I mentioned it to Lela, who said she’d heard it was a superstition that it was good luck to get married on the half hour.  As a google addict (I probably google “what does ___ mean” twenty-five times a day),  a message board thread on The Knot confirmed the superstition.  Evidently, the big hand moving up towards the 12 is better luck than it moving down towards the 6.

My husband and I married at 3pm, and we’re almost 7 years going strong!  What superstitions did you consider for your wedding?
