    • Wedding: July 2013

    We wanted 20 July 2013 because it’s our 10th anniversary of meeting and 7th of being engaged, and also happens to be on a Saturday (hooray!).  We got our date because we booked the venue so far out.

    • Wedding: April 2019

    Well it isn’t definite yet but there was no particular reason for picking the date except it isn’t in peak wedding season and it isn’t someone’s birthday (that I know of). It is also a weekend. The date wasn’t as important to us, except it will be nice to have an anniversary not close to either of our birthdays or other major holidays πŸ™‚

    • Wedding: June 2014 - Ontario, Canada β™₯ EDD- April 2016

    We would have loved to do a date that was meaningful for us but all of them will be weekdays for a while haha. We ended up choosing a date that flowed well to us and was nice and even πŸ˜‰ June 14th 2014.

    • Wedding: August 1900

    I was a Labor Day bride, just like my mom and her mom. We booked far enough in advance to get the Saturday of that holiday weekend.

    I chose that we wanted and got a specific date, but that was only because we were kind of limited in terms of when the best time to have the wedding was. 85% of our guest list is Out of Town, lots of teachers and several students, so we had to have it in the summer (I wanted a fall wedding originally). June is too busy, wedding-wise. July is too hot. August seemed nice, and we ended up picking the weekend before school starts for Fiance because we wanted it closer to September. We switched from that Saturday to that Friday because it was cheaper.

    Before we got engaged, we talked about NOT having it during the summer because of the heat, etc.

    BUT Fiance will still be in school and I work at a high school, so the summer just made the most sense! Since Fiance will be taking summer classes as well, this was the earliest we could get married next summer. It sounds so unromantic because of the reason. πŸ™‚

    • Wedding: August 2012

    We picked 8/25/2012 because it was our 9 year anniversary. We wating an extra year for that date to be on a Saturday so we could have as many family and friends at out Destination Wedding as possible. It worked out so well and was so meaningful.

    • Wedding: November 2012 - Oak Tree Manor

    Houston weather is really variable, but you can pretty much count on summer being REALLY hot and the winter months being a bit chilly, so we picked November because the weather is beautiful for an outdoor wedding. The date wasn’t important at all though. We DID think aboutwjich month would be the best to celebrate our anniversary, though, and November seemed nice for an autumn anniversary πŸ™‚

    • Wedding: September 2013

    We knew the season but basically just went with the date that worked for both the church and the reception venue. It’s not a round number at all, but it’s close to the original date we met, so it works for us! 10/19/2013. It will be special not because of the numbers, but because of our marriage.

    • Wedding: November 1999

    We wanted a Winter wedding to be different and before we were even engaged, I told Fiance that I wanted to get married January 26th. And his response was that it was his grandparents anniversary! So we just stuck with it. We didn’t mean for it to be a special date it just happened that way.

    • Wedding: October 2010

    It wasn’t all that important to us other then that it be a day that my in-laws were able to be here for it.  It did work out nicely that it was 6 months after our civil ceremony.  πŸ™‚

    I voted we picked a nice round number and got it but actually I had to have even numbers.  I’m a bit weird about numbers so I don’t love that we’re getting married in 2013, but I didn’t want to wait another year so I guess I’ll get over it.
