Honest truth? If we got married on 21st September we could be at Disney on our Honeymoon during the Food & Wine Festival… that’s literally it.

Seeing as you’re both clutching at straws for reasons – why don’t you see if there are any family birthdays that fall on one of the weekends (so you can avoid it)/see if anything is going on in your town/city that could hike up hotel prices.

Or – call some of your favourite vendors and see if any are booked on one of the weekends.

I think those are going to be your best reasons to choose a date. Not International Chocolate Day or his house number.

We got married on September 15, 2012. I wanted a September wedding and it was the only weekend that there wasn’t a Notre Dame home game, so that is why we picked it. I live in South Bend, IN and ND is a really big deal here 🙂

We actually wanted to get married in August….unfortunately all our favorite venues were fully booked…there were just a few locations that still offered September dates (otherwise we could have ended up marrying in October). So basically we got dictated by venues as to what our wedding date will be

My fiance and I met at a wedding, so we decided to get married at that same venue. We wanted our ceremony to be in the room that we met in, and it happened to be a room that they don’t book for ceremonies. So they said they would let us book the room if we had it on Friday, November 1st. Couldn’t pass it up. 🙂

We started dating in March which coincides with FI’s busy season at work, and I didn’t want a middle of the Summer wedding, so that brought us to September. The first date we picked conflicted with FI’s Aunt’s 60th birthday. After that we made sure nothing else conflicted with people’s birthdays or anniversarys and narrowed it down to two weekends that would work. Luckily we were also looking at honeymoon options and the date of the cruise we wanted to go on helped us pick the week to have the wedding.

We decided on the seventh day because thats the day we started dating 🙂 

Good Luck! And congratulations!

@sunshinewish15:  We chose our date because we know Oct is probably the last chance we will have to get married near the beach until next April or May & do not want to wait. Also, it is planned around his graduation from school and a cruise for our honeymoon.

@sunshinewish15:  Check the dates to see if anything awesome or terrible occurred on those dates. We like that our wedding is on All Souls Day but other people think it’s creepy.

I had my heart set on 4.26 but the venue only did one wedding a day and it was booked. Sooo we had to change it. Don’t get too set on a date because you might have to change it!
