If you think missing a family member's wedding for any reason is out of the question, think again.

Recently, 20 percent of respondents to an online survey said they would miss the wedding of a close family member to attend a Super Bowl game, as long as it was featuring their favorite NFL team.

Here at HuffPost Weddings, we found that statistic hard to believe, so we polled the Twitterverse to get some more answers. It turns out that the online survey had it right. Overwhelmingly, Twitterers said they would skip a Big Day bash to watch the Big Game.

Most users wanted to know: Why would anyone plan a wedding on Super Bowl Sunday?! We don't have an answer, but it might have something to do with the often years-long waiting lists for venues.
