My Fiance and I chose the date that we first started dating. We will be getting married on our 6 year anniversary. Reading so much of all the crafty/creative things some of the ladies have done on here made me want to get a little creative with incorporating something to the extent of “our anniversary” into the wedding. I was thinking of some type of decorative board near the placecards that said thank you for sharing our 6 year anniversary with us. And then maybe adding our meeting/dating/courtship story. Thats as creative as I’ve gotten so far, and ideas/suggestions or is anybody else getting married on that special day??

We tried! Our original date was set to September 18th… our 6-year dating anniversary. However, someone booked our reception space before us, so we had to move it back a week. 🙁

- Wedding: January 2011 - Vintage Villas
We actually REALLY wanted to, but the timing just didn’t work out. Ours in Jan 29th, which falls on a Saturday, but my fiance will still be in college and the semester will have started by then. Plus, Fridays are much more affordable. So, we moved it up to the 7th

We’re close – our Anniv. is 9/7 and our date is 9/5. We’ll be on our Honeymoon.
We were talking about booking the H-moon the other day when he said, “If I told you on our 1st date that 4yrs from now we’ll be on our Honeymoon, would you have thought I was crazy? I would’ve thought I was crazy.” HAH!

Wow! That is our 6 year anniversary as well. We hope to get married on August 20, 2011. I think it would be a great idea to let everyone know that it is your anniversary!

No, but our dating anniversary and engage-iversary is today! We wanted to get married on a Saturday and we would have had to wait until 2011 for that to work out. We couldn’t wait that long!

@Jackie-O: Our wedding date was 12-12-09, yes!!!
I can’t remember the exact date of our dating anniversary, but to us it is the 1st weekend in December. We tried to get married on 12-5-09 but it was booked, so we took 12-12. Even though it’s not exact, it’s totally close enough for me. Early December in general just reminds me of when we started dating, so I was excited that we were able to do it then. We seriously celebrate our dating anniversary so I wanted to be able to get married then so we could just make it one anniversary.

we got married on the anniversary of the day we met (a month before we started dating) and the anniversary of our engagement (a year after we met).
we didn’t use anything from it in our wedding, but we did have our engagement party where we got engaged- at a campground.

I started a part time job 4/8/98, saw this really cute guy there got to know him for about a month, asked HIM out with friends 5/8/98, became inseparable ever since. Got married 4/8/00 at age 30 and now celebrating 10 happy years 4/8/10 at age 40.
Eight has always been his lucky number his whole life.

I was hoping for it, but for it to work out that way we would have had to wait until 2014 for it to fall on a Saturday. Not willing to wait that long!!

We are but didn’t plan it! I orignally wanted it around our birthday because we share the same Birthday month and met on his birthday. We bought an Aquamarine engagement ring (our birthstone)! But the birthday dates were taken so we went with the next open date. As it turns that date was our 1st dating date, so cool!
btw… only a few more days to the big day! 🙂
