Marriage document date doesn't match other records #poland #records


Does anyone know why the date on a Polish marriage record would be in January 1897, while the marriage date recorded on the couple's children's birth certificates is in March 1897?
My great grandparents marriage record says they were married in Szrensk, Plock Gubernia on 22 January 1897.It's definitely the right record, the place and all the names  match.
My grandfather was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1901 and his birth certificate has his parents' marriage as being on 8 March 1897. His brother's birth certificate has the same marriage date on it. The informant was my great grandfather in both cases.

Many thanks.
