Had this discussion with a married friend of mine. Once you were married did you stop celebrating dating anniversaries? Or engagement anniversaries? Did you ever celebrate them?
I can’t imagine stopping celebrating our dating anniversary because it’s the marker for how long we’ve been together, but celebrating two anniversaries seems excessive to me (unless we manage to get married on our dating anniversary)
What do you do bees?

We acknowledge our dating anniversary if we remember. But only verbally. We celebrate our wedding anniversary each year.

We celebrate our dating and our wedding anniversary, but I think whether it’s excessive or not depends on how you celebrate.

Only our wedding anniversary. I don’t even remember our dating anniversary.

For me, the meeting and dating anniversaries were only make-do until we had a real anniversary to celebrate.

We will celebrate both our dating (May) and wedding (December) anniversaries. I don’t think it will be excessive unless you do something downright insane (I can’t even imagine what that would be…) for both.

We had of course always celebrated our dating anniversary. But now that we are married, we just celebrate the marriage anniversary. I thnk we will still do a dinner, but maybe make a date night at home. Our two anniversaries are only 6 weeks apart 🙂

We never really started celebrating our dating anniversary. I’m not 100% of our engagement date (I know it’s one of two days) and I have no idea when we had our first kiss. So, we only celebrate our wedding anniversary.

We only celebrate our wedding anniversary. We mention our dating anniversary if we remember.. the two dates are only a month apart. I don’t really remember that exact date of our engagement. I know what weekend it was but I can’t remember if it was that Saturday or Sunday he proposed.

We’ve never celebrated our dating anniversary. Wedding is it for us (or will be…we’ve only been married about 6 weeks)….

We still celebrate our dating anniversary, I mean that’s been our anniversary for 7 years so I didn’t just want to ignore it. We just go out for dinner and maybe to a movie on our dating anniversary. As for wedding anniversaries, we haven’t had one yet, but I’d like to do something more special for it.

I voted dating and wedding, but we got married on our 5 year dating anniversary, so it’s the same 🙂

We only celebrate our wedding anniversary, but still note our dating anniversary when it comes around, as well. Nothing special, though.

we celebrate both our dating & wedding anniversary (7 months apart)! We dated for 8 yrs before we got married- I really hate that as soon as we got married that number resets to zero, so we decided to celebrate both at least until our wedding anniversary has “caught up” so to speak with the 8 yrs we dated before hand- then we will re-evaluate. However, we don’t usually do anything crazy or extravagant anyway- usually some kind of activity and a nice dinner or show and we’re not big on gifts so we see no reason not to celebrate love twice a year (three times if you include v-day)!

- Wedding: August 2013 - Wynn Las Vegas
We just celebrate our wedding anniversary. We never really celebrated our dating one. It would be exhausting to celebrate all of those events!
