I let Fiance pick our wedding date and it has no significance to us, whatsoever. He wanted to get married on Friday the 13th. Wouldn’t have it any other way. Plus, he wanted it to be in the summertime. So, July 13th it is! We didn’t meet in July, nothing special happnened in July, it’s just pointless. I keep feeling like this is going to affect my marriage in some crazy way, or something. Maybe I’m being crazy, myself! Anybody else have a meaningless date?

We *were* going to have a “meaningless” wedding date, but then after we had already picked it, the Catholic Church announced (we’re Catholic) that it’s going to be the feast day of Pope John Paul! So I thought that was pretty awesome.

Yes. Ours is still up in the air between August 25 or 26th, based on when it is cheapest to fly to Hawaii lol.

@Pinksapphire: I’d think that most people have “meaningless” wedding dates. Ours was just a Saturday in the summer that worked for us and our venue. Now it’s significant because it’s the day we got married!

Ours did not mean anything to us.

My date has no special significance to me yet (it will after the wedding of course!) We got engaged on New Year’s Eve, and after waiting so long for the proposal I knew I wanted to get married within the year. His mom desperately wanted me to wait til next spring, but I wasn’t having it. I had originally thought September, but people told me that it would still be too hot (I live in Florida). My brother’s birthday is in the middle of October so I wanted it to be after that, which is how we ended up with October 30.

Our only “meaningful” date is September 11 so yeah…. I think we will go with something meaningless!

I only really though of avoiding the important dates of others I am close to, such as birthdays.

Ours is meaningless, mainly because we had to accommodate the schedules of FIs family – they eliminated the first 7 dates we picked because of schedule conflicts (who has that much scheduled more than a year in advance?) I really wanted 10/15/11, since it would have been the anniversary of our engagement, but no go. It came down to when his immediate family could make it and when the venue was available.
However, I don’t mind, it may be meaningless now, but come October 30th, it will be pretty damn meaningful!

Well, now I don’t feel so bad, I guess. It’s just that a lot of people in my family picked a day that had some signifcance to them. Like, the anniversary of the day they met or something.

We picked ours based on when the cruise we want to do for our honeymoon would be cheapest

Ours is meaningless, other then I liked the way the numbers looked (all even numbers, all divisable by 6). It’s a few days after the date we met, and a little more than a week before our dating anniversary (7/11). I would have loved to get married on 7/11, but it’s a wednesday next year and I wasn’t going to wait years for it to fall on the right day of the week. So, 6/30 it is – will have a great meaning for me from now until the rest of my life!

We picked ours based on when my in-laws were able to travel to the USA to be there for the wedding. 🙂

I chose September because the weather is awesome and my hair won’t be frizzy! I first chose our regular anniversary 9/15 but that date was taken. I pushed it back a week to 9/22 and figure it’ll hopefully be a bit cooler and even better! I choose good weather or a significant date.
