    We’ve always done dating anniversaries, but will switch to marriage anniversaries after our wedding. FI was the one to suggest doing dating anniversaries too!

    We’ve done dating anniversaries for the last seven years, but after the wedding we’ll just celebrate our wedding annviersary.

    We celebrate our dating anniversary, but I’m sure we’ll only celebrate marriage anniversaries after the wedding.  There are already so many things to celebrate, and our dating anniversary is inconveniently placed between Christmas and Valentine’s day. I’m sure I’ll mention it every year, though.

    bmo88:  We don’t celebrate any. We might celebrate when we eventually reach the big ones like 50 or 60th. We choose to celebrate our love and relationship throughout the year.

    We currently celebrate the day that he and I became official/exclusive as our anniversary (doing a “dating anniversary” would be hard for us because we were friends before becoming romantic and neither of us really know when our official “first date” really was).

    We’ve already decided that we will keep celebrating this one and NOT our marriage anniversary because we’ve been together 7+ years and we don’t view “marriage” as being that big of a landmark for us.

    As for what we do on our anniversary, basically just say, “Happy Anniversary! Where should we go out to dinner?” and choose a place we’ve been wanting to go to. We’re not big on presents, so that’s pretty much it. Maybe we’ll do something fancier for our 10-year.

    We’ve been together 6/7 years now. We never celebrated a dating anniversary or anything else like that. We can’t even keep track of how long we’ve been together! We will be celebrating wedding anniversaries (maybe lol)

    FI has always been phenomenal at remembering anniversaries. When we were first dating, we would have monthly anniversaries and fraction of year anniversaries (e. g. quarterversary). Since hitting the one year dating anniversary, we don’t do the monthly anymore, but that one year mark was very special! It was FI’s idea to get married close to the dating anniversary too. 

    Initially, I was mentally prepared in case he was bad at remembering anniversaries, but he definitely exceeded expectations!

    We celebrate dating anniversaries. Which is an anniversary of our first date. After 6 months of dating I jokingly celebrated “monthiverserys” by giving him small gifts but after a year stopped doing it lol. I think when we get married we might celebrate both? Not too sure yet. Maybe just marriage. We’ll talk about it lol.

    We celebrated our first date throughout our courtship and engagement.  Next year, our wedding date will be the same date! That way we don’t lose the special day and it’ll be easy to remember our wedding anniversary since we’ve already been celebrating this day for the past 8 years!

    We might say something on our dating anniversary, but we don’t really celebrate it.  We celebrate our wedding anniversary.

    We do a low key dinner for our dating anniversary.  No gifts or anything like that, but it’s a good excuse to eat out & celebrate each other again haha.

    For each of our marriage anniversaries so far we planned a weekend getaway 🙂
