Stupid question, forgive me, but how are you writing out your wedding date in numbers?
Will it be:
11.5.11 (made up date)
I’m asking because I’m working on designing a monogram and I always refer to and think of my wedding date as the first option…but that might not be the correct way to write it. Thoughts?

I voted the second option, because it’s more correct, and I like how my date looks: 10/09/10 🙂

I always write 1.7.11…I’ve never been one to put a “0” before single digit dates, though. But, I think it looks good either way!!

I don’t think it really matters. If you are going for something more formal, then I think 11.05.11 would be the way to write it. It just depends on what you want. I don’t have this problem though, so it’s not something I have given a lot of thought to.

my wedding date was 11.7.08 and that’s how I wrote it on monograms, etc.

I’m military, so to me it looks weird without the zeroes!

I think it’s more of a personal preference than a right or wrong kind of thing. I mixed up the two methods… 9.05.10

thanks everyone! I guess I’m still torn. Obviously I always say “eleven, five, eleven” rather than “eleven, oh-five, eleven” and so I would always write it that way…but then I thought maybe it wasn’t “correct?”
But, you’re right, kiddosc, it could be a personal preference thing.

I like just the 5 because the two elevens on either side of it look mirrored. Very cool date.
The only time I’d write the leading zero in is if I were creating some sort of monogram or logo that was going to look more like this:
Hope that makes sense.

Wow, I never thought about it…I guess we’ll just do 7/3/10? Maybe 7/3/2010? Or just skip just numbers all together and write it out: July 3rd, 2010.
Prolly the last now that I look at it.

We got married in September, and put the zero in front of the nine. We didn’t even have a super formal wedding (or invite), but I just really liked the look of it better because it was even 🙂

I’m not a big fan of zeros unless it’s in a super abbreviated form.
ETA: But I think you could do either, no problem – which ‘balances’ better in your monogram? I hope we get to see that eventually!

Our monogram had 05.02.09 with the dots and extra 0s. 🙂

We’re doing 8-7-10, I guess I never really thought about putting the zero in front of either number.
