The wedding of James Potter I and Lily Evans took place sometime between the summer of 1978 and the autumn of 1979.[1] Their close friend Sirius Black served as best man.

Neither of James's parents attended the wedding as both were deceased, it is unknown as to whether either of Lily's parents attended the wedding.

  1. 1.0 1.1 In Deathly Hallows, Chapter 33, Dumbledore refers to James as Lily's "husband" in the scene where Snape asks him to protect Lily. This scene can be determined as having occurred in autumn 1979, based on the description of the setting ("...the sound of the wind in the branches" and "Though leaves and branches still flew through the night air around them..."), as well as J. K. Rowling's statement during her 2007 Carnegie Hall appearance that the Potters went into hiding when Lily was pregnant. James and Lily must have thus married sometime between leaving Hogwarts in June 1978 and autumn 1979.
