We were originally going to get married in April 2015, but since we don’t want to have too long of an engagement we are choosing September 2014 (the first month of Spring in Australia!)
SO and I sat down the other day and had a look at dates.
He likes the 13th because our original anniversary was May 14th, so the numbers are close.. and since we both love chocolate it is International Chocolate Day.
I like the 27th because we had our first kiss in his bedroom at his old house, which was number 27 on that street. 9 is his lucky number, and 14 is mine.
Both dates are nice but when it comes to the crunch I’m not sure which we will choose! How did you choose your date and is there any significance/cute reasoning behind it? 🙂

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 plan to get married on the 7th of Septeber, which is on a Sunday but we are not having it in a church and plus we have decided to leave out for our honeymoon that following monday.
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!
