FI and I will have been together for 7 years this weekend. We usually do something for our “anniversary” like go out on a nice date and get each other a small gift. (nothing crazy expensive).
I’m just curious, do you still celebrate your dating anniversary as well as your wedding anniversary? What do you do? I need some ideas to make this anniversary special since it will be our last one before we get married!

We never celebrated our “dating” anniversary…I don’t even know when it is

we dated for over a decade so that day is definitely important to us. Our wedding date is within a week of our anniversary so we will likely celebrate once, but still acknowledge our dating anniversary

Our wedding anniversary is aout 2 weeks after our dating anniversary, so we’ll probably do one celebration for both, but will still remember the day we met/started dating (they’re the same day)! Considering we’ve been together for nearly 5 years but married less than one right now, it feels right to acknowledge that we’ve been together that long.

We do! But we also got married on our three year dating anniversary.

I don’t know the exact date that we got together. And we saw each other for a few months before becoming exclusive, and I don’t know that date either, but it was sometime around Labor Day, so that’s when we’re getting married. Although come to think of it, we’ve never celebrated our dating-anniversary to begin with. I just like the idea of getting married at around the same time. We’re even waiting until next year to tie the knot so that it will be after 10 years instead of 9 🙂

@MissCountryGirl727: …nah man….you know what? Its actually at the end of this month and we just happen to be going out to dinner on a totally non-related celebration….but I haven’t even thought about that day in a LONG time…

Our dating anniversary is important to me, so we’re going to celebrate both. However, I’m going to treat him to a special day on the dating anniversary, and he’ll plan the wedding anniversary celebraton! That way, each of us will get a romantic surprise! And you can never have too many date nights 🙂

We married exactly 6th months apart from our dating anniversary, so we do celebrate both. No ideas for you, what we do varies every year. Some years cake or dinner or fancy vacations, other years nothing but sharing a small fries at McD’s. Just spend time together and it will be special because it’s your last before marriage.

@MissCountryGirl727: We do. I say “FI” on this site because we haven’t had our official ceremony and I am planning it. However, we are legally married. Weird, now we will have three dates: dating, legal marriage, ceremony. Eep! One has got to go, lol.

Eh, sometimes. It happens to be Valentines Day so we do dinner but it’s not like we go all out for it.

We were talking about this and we figured…why not? It’s a good excuse for a date night 😀

We do, but only because it’s a few days after Valentines and we’ve always just celebrated a combined Vday/anniversary whenever the nearest weekend falls (and we never have ever given anniversary gifts, we just go out to a nice dinner), so it’s no big deal to continue that. Plus I love any excuse to eat out somewhere nice 🙂

I voted yes but we don’t exactly celebrate it. We acknowledge it, but we don’t buy each other gifts or purposely plan a date night or anything. We also acknowledge our proposal anniversary, but we also don’t do gifts or date night specifically.
