The 4th anniversary of our first date is Sunday, but now that we’re married, I don’t think we’re going to really celebrate. We celebrated our 6 month wedding anniversary earlier this week.
To you other Newlyweds–do you still celebrate your dating anniversary, or just your wedding anniversary?

We don’t even remember what our dating anniversary is! Honestly, we didn’t have a ‘first date’ because we were long distance for the first two years of our relationship so it’s sort of hard to have a date.

it is also our engage-aversary, so I’m sure it will always be special to us, but it doesn’t necessarily mean an expensive night out…my mom still remembers theirs almost 50 years later!

We totally did this year! It was officially 5 years since we started dating on November 6th…so we went out to dinner to celebrate us! Our wedding anniversary is 9/1 though…so we’ll definitely celebrate that more.

We got engaged the same day we had our dating anniversary, but to me it’s not worth celebrating, our wedding anniversary means so much more to us.

we always celebrate our dating anniversary! it’ll be 11 years at the end of December. Even after we are married we still will!

Before we got married, we said “oh yes, certainly!” and now that we’re married, we think we were kind of foolish. Being married is so big that it overwhelms what we used to celebrate and the relationship we thought was so close… I’m not sure if I’m explaining this well. Our dating anniversary is sweet, but sweet in the way our first grade pledges of BFF were.

We definintely do! But we consider our dating anniversary to also be the day we became a couple (sappy, right? I guess we knew there was no one else).

Our wedding day was two days before our dating anniversary so now we will just celebrate one anniversary.

we never reeally had a dating anniversary. We’ve been “together” for about 7 years… we just know that we started dating and falling in love of January 2003. No specific date. I mean we started dating in college and it was a time where a lot of people I knew had things like “04/04/03… the first day of the rest of my love <3 you!” in their AIM (hahahaha AIM) profiles and stuff… For those of you who are little ones and don’t know, AIM was pre-facebook.
I always thought those dates were a little too much, and often, those relationships were the on and off again, or short lived ones.
So, as a shorter answer to the question, no we don’t celebrate it because we don’t have one lol

We never really had a dating anniversary … (same as GaBGal) … oops =)
I think that the day we got engaged will be extremely special each year – day after Valentines day!

We probably won’t really celebrate it after we get married – we are going to be getting married about 3 weeks before it (we were planning on getting married ON our dating anniversary, which would have been amazing, but it didn’t work out because of school). But, FI has said that he still wants to at least acknowledge it after we get married – even if it’s just something small.

We didn’t last year because it fell on Easter, but we like to celebrate it because if it wasn’t for the start of us dating there wouldn’t be us 🙂
