Taylor Swift just announced her 2023 The Eras Tour with 26 shows spanning 20 cities across the country. The only problem? If your wedding date conflicts with one of her concerts. Since Taylor Swift announced her first tour in five years, brides have been yelling, "Look what you made me do!" as some are considering moving their wedding date to attend the concert in their city.

"Taylor Swift is finally going on tour, but I live in Seattle, and that's my wedding day," a woman cries on TikTok as she points to July 22 — the date Swift will perform at the city's Lumen Field. Her caption read, "Sooo do I cancel my wedding or..??"

Those who aren't as die hard, can't wrap their heads around this phenomena while Swifties can't understand how a wedding could be more important. One Twitter user with "Taylor's Version" in their username, wrote, "i can't believe people who have been planning their weddings for months are now debating moving the date because there's a taylor swift concert that day…what the hell is the debate?? no wedding could be that important," to which another fan replied, "You don't understand how stressed we were about having a Taylor Swift concert date on June 3 (our wedding). We were going to elope if there was a conflict."

Unfortunately Swift's upcoming tour isn't only affecting brides-to-be but also the bridesmaids who are choosing between friendship and their Swifties alliance. "Watching my coworker's wedding slowly fall apart because she's getting married in the middle of Taylor Swift's tour," one user Tweeted, as the rest of us on the internet watch as mutiny unfolds.

Other Swifties rest easy knowing they managed to avoid the dreaded overlap. One fan went so far as to push her wedding into 2024 just to be safe rather than sorry. "The possibility of Taylor Swift doing a 2023 tour was like 90% of the reason why I chose a 2024 wedding date," the user confirmed in a Tweet.

For those who do end up canceling their weddings, the potential Instagram captions are gold: "They say I did something bad. But why's it feel so good? Most fun I ever had. And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could." Here's to no regrets.
