congratulations!  not having an april 1st wedding but my FIRST wedding was on april fools day….. have a funny story for you….. we went to vegas and got married at a drive-through chapel…… it was really late in the day so by the time we got it all done it was just after midnight so it was actually april 2nd.  we told the woman who married us that we had hoped to be married on the 1st but we had missed it by 15 minutes.  she said “oh no problem!” and proceeded to change the date on our marriage licence with white out!  she wrote april 1st on top of april 2nd.  Tah-dah!  married on april 1st!

we were never sure if that was actually legal or not….. lol.

It’s not my wedding date but it is my mom’s birthday! I think it is an awesome idea!! You can get away with some funny tricks too!

I don’t know how I missed this thread! I’m an April Fool’s bride too! When people ask why we picked that date, I just say it’s coz we’re fools for love, or fools for each other, haha. Cheesy I know but we’re both excited about it!

If I could have gotten away with getting married before graduation April 1st was my first pick! Then again, the more I thought about it later I was kinda happe we didn’t pick that because his birthdat is April 5th and mine is April 19th,

I am also getting married on April 1, 2011. We actually picked the date because we fell in love with our venue and that was the only Friday night they had available in April.

We are going to have some fun with it and I am trying to think of some fun ideas and playful jokes for the guests. Any ideas????
