- Wedding: September 2012
Hello! I just got engaged yesterday!!! I have been with my FH for 5 years, and we’ve been talking about marriage from about day one, lol, so I’ve already done some planning (or so I thought. I’m realizing I have a LONG way to go).
We want to get married next fall. I just realized that my grandparents 60th anniversary is September 6th, and I think it would be so sweet if we had our wedding around then and did a few special things to honor them. I’m a little disappointed that the 6th is a Thursday, however it can still be special even if we don’t get married on the exact date.
My questions are, what do you all think about having the wedding Sept. 2nd, Labor day weekend, 4 days before their anniversary? I would like to think that no one who mattered would miss our wedding for a weekend at the lake, and it would give my out of town family extra travel time! Also, a lot of our friends are still in school and will probably never graduate 🙂 so it would be easier on them as well.
Second question: do I tell my grandparents our plan to honor them at the wedding? Or should it be a surprise? We would have to tell them if it was actually ON their anniversary, but since it’s not would it be better to surprise them with a special toast/cake etc?
