My fiancé and I were that rare circumstance that actually worked. I hate telling people how we met though. Although it’s funny I definitely think it will sound better after 30 years of marriage than it does now. It also was extremely awkward to tell our officiant and I dread telling the priest once we find a Catholic Church. That being said- We met NYE at a bar. I was with my friend and he dared his friend to dance with me but his friend wouldn’t so then he ended up dancing with me instead. I barely remember this night minus the few things I did that made me wonder why he ever continued to talk to me. First- when he told me his name I responded with you got to be kidding me. He had the same name as the ex bf. Which of course I thought he wanted me to tell him that information. Second- after I gave him my number I told him I didn’t smoke. He looked confused so I told him he text me and asked if I smoked. He said no that must have been the other guy you gave your number to tonight. Busted. For some reason though, he kept talking to me then we went our separate ways and I never expected for him to contact me. I did not go home with him!!! Of course he did contact me the next day. Then comes the first real date which was pretty much like a blind date since I had to ask my friend to describe what he looked like. The first date was great and surprisingly it ended up we were both adult-like non-alcoholics that had our lives together. As much as this story makes me laugh, I think it should probably be toned down. We have always been honest with people about how we met but it seems different to tell someone in person compared to a wedding website. Any suggestions on how to word this would be appreciated. Have any of you ladies had to rephrase a crazy encounter story? I would love to see the real versions vs the edited version!!

“We met celebrating NYE 2011 (Or whatever Year). He asked me to dinner the day after, and we haven’t looked back since!”

Sara1923: I like pps suggestion. There is no need to tell more than that!

Sara1923: it sounds like an endearing story. I’m not sure why you think it’s awkward? You met at a bar on NYE and he pursued you as his new year’s resolution. best decision he ever made and easiest resolution he ever kept.
you’re welcome 😉

Kind of a similar story here, I met my DH at a party and we ended up hooking up (definitely out of character for me!!) We were both pretty drunk and we “dated”/messed around for like six months before making it official. I say that ” we met through friends, went on a lot of dates and adventures before making it official. We’ve been happy ever since!” My parents also met at a bar and they’ve been married 33 years! They also just say that they met through friends.

You met at a bar at New Years. Not awkward at all.

I don’t think meeting at a bar is awkward at all. No need to tell them everything else that happened that night.

Um, I met my husband when I was at his frat house, wasted, trying to get his friend to cheat on his girlfriend with me (class act right here!). Do we tell people all of that? Hellll no! We met in college because his fraternity was next door to my sorority and we realized we had class together.
