Bury the Bourbon - Advice needed on this Southern Tradition

Okay, so the Tradition is this "Southern folklore says that if you bury a bottle of bourbon at the site where the bride and groom are to be married it won’t rain on their wedding day. According to many believers, this must be done exactly one month before the wedding, the bottle must be completely full, and it must be buried upside down to ensure maximum weather persuasion." 

My question is "How specific do you have to be regarding the ONE MONTH rule?! 

Example: Our wedding is Saturday Oct 4th. Does that mean we bury September 4th (Which is a Thursday) or 4 weeks before (would be September 6th a Saturday like our wedding)" 

ALSO LET ME KNOW IF THIS HAS WORKED FOR YOU! :)

 I've never heard of this tradition but I like it!!!!!

I Googled it but there isn't a lot of information, everywhere just says 'exactly one month before' so I would take that as a calendar month meaning September 4th.

Have fun - and make sure you share pictures!!!

I've never heard of it either, and I'm in Kentucky (bourbon country)!  I'm not superstitious, but I think it sounds like a fun thing to try anyway.
