So we had the perfect date, 7th of June 2014, my favourite month, his favourite number and on a Saturday. Just perfect. Until we found out a friend of ours had already paid a deposit for that day (bummer!) they are quite close too, so its not like we were going to go ahead with that date! (The irony is that I was told this on the 7th of June this year!)
So… another week in June we thought… 21st was ok, but then of course… other friends have already booked a wedding a few days after, so that was a no go.
Then we thought… May but then I came to the realisation that I will probably have exams and its my MOH’s graduation time… so also a no go.
So the other half has always wanted to get married in September, an idea I always shot down, I don’t know I just never pictured it however the last week in August is my parent’s anniversary… this could be totally sweet except my parents are getting divorced and have had a terrible marriage!
So… we think we’re pretty set on September the 6th, it a Saturday, my friends are free and most of their weddings are in June/July so they’ll be back from their honeymoons by then. I wanted a summer wedding and where I’m from, September is still extremely hot and still full-blown summer, but slightly cooler than July and August (which my other half objected to due to the heat).
I would have loved a really meaning date *eheeem June 7th* (instead I will be attending a wedding that day), but oh well! What would you do? Do you think we made the right decision?

@FutureMrsSarah: I think September would be lovely. I wish we could get married on our anniversary, but it doesn’t fall on a Saturday for another four years. My partner always says that no matter what new day or month, it will always be special because its your NEW day. September weather is also quite nice. I wouldn’t be too disheartened, I think the 6th of September would be great 🙂 at least it isn’t close to your friends’ wedding days!

Or even September 20th/21st?

@FutureMrsSarah: FYI in case it affects anything, September 6th is the weekend after Labor Day. Just a factor to consider :). Also, college kids will be heading back to school that weekend or have already started classes, if you will have any college aged guests.

It was my dream to get married on our anniversary, September 25th. I thought it was fate when September 25th fell on a Friday… in 2015, but that’s too far from now. It would’ve been our 8th anniversary. We are students, so my guy has always asked for a summer wedding so it doesn’t interfere too much with school and work. Instead, I’m thinking the 25th of July. At least it’s the same date of our aniversary. Sometimes, dates don’t work out as you planned, but that doesn’t mean your wedding won’t still be everything you dreamed it would be 🙂

@FutureMrsSarah: What about the 14th of June? It’s a variation of 7 (times 2), and gives you an extra week after your friend’s wedding to have yours. 🙂

@sunshinewish15: I agree, we decided on the 6th so that our honeymoon will still be during summer weather , I agree though it doesn’t matter what date it is, it is our wedding day and that is what really matters at the end of the day!
@allyouneedislove: I’m not an American (I’m British and my bf is Spanish) so that isn’t a problem hehe, but thank you and university starts a little later here (late September) so that shouldn’t be a problem (I hope).
@lovelee1: I’m kind of sentimental will those things although technically my bf’s birthday is on the 6th (of January) so on the bright side that day bought me one of the best things and I rather have a wedding in which all my loved ones are there than a significant date without them .
@Sweet_Tea: We considered it but it interferes with my MOH’s graduation and our friends would still be on their honeymoon, oh well September it is hehe.
We actually booked our reception venue for the 6th of September yesterday so unless things change a lot that will be the date (I’ve come much more to terms with it and am starting to like it haha).
