    I misread the poll. Our birthdays DID factor into when we don’t want to have our wedding. But I don’t think your wedding is too close to your birthday. Fiance and I both have November birthdays, along with my dad, two cousins, and my Grandpa. And don’t forget Thanksgiving. Needless to say we will NOT be having a November wedding 😀

    Fiance birthday is in may and mine is in august they are both on friday night s this year so we decided june/july  sounded good. we knew we wated a spring wedding but honestly other occasions played more of a role such as fathers/Mothers day and when all our neices and nephews got  out of school.

    My birthday was exactly one week after our wedding.  We celebrated on our honeymoon.  Honestly, that whole wedding/birthday month was like the best month of my life.  

    We make a big deal about birthdays so it’s kind of exciting to now have it be an even bigger deal with our anniversary at the same time.  But I did make Darling Husband promise that I still get two presents.

    @MrsTimmy:  Hallowe’en baby just like me, how fun! 

    I don’t think it’s close, almost a week a half.  If the wedding was on Saturday the 27th maybe that’s cutting it too close.

    My wedding was the day before my birthday!!  And it did factor into my decision… I chose to do it that way so I could say I was still in my 20’s when I got married (I turned 30 the next day), and my Darling Husband will have a really hard time forgetting both my birthday and our anniversary at the same time this way (or…if he DOES, he is royally screwed!).  =P

    • Wedding: September 2012

    We are getting married Sept 8th and my birthday is Sept 11th. I wanted to get married before my 29th birthday (for no particular reason) and since the first weekend in September is Labor Day and move-in day for MIT and Harvard, I decided against it…that just left the weekend of Sept 8th! Now I will get to celebrate my birthday on the beaches of Hawaii!

    I didn’t have to worry about birthdays because I always wanted an October wedding and our birthdays are May (me) and January (him). If I somehow couldn’t have a fall wedding, May probably would have been my second choice, in which case I’d have just picked a date at the end of the month since my birthday is towards the beginning.

    I don’t understand what problems there could be by getting married a week before your birthday?

    • Wedding: April 2011

    My birthday is March 16 and we got married April 7th. I dont think I would want it the same day but  a week or more doesnt bother me. WE just did an anny / bday trip, I like that they can kind of be combined to do the big celebration.

    I thought it would bother me but it doesn’t.  It ended up being when we needed to have the wedding due to my fiance being in school a bit longer than he planned.  His birthday is February 2, our wedding was on March 6 and my birthday is March 18.  We had two celebrations this year for our anniversary and then my birthday so it was kind of fun, it was nice to have that to look forward to.

    I always wanted to get married in May just because my parents and my grandparents, and my great grandparents all got married in May. Fiance and my dating anniversary is the 8th (but we decided we’d always just celebrate it the first weekend in May) so we thought we’d get married on the first Saturday in May! Exxccceepppt thats Cinco De Mayo…sorry but not fighting with crowds of drunks for the rest of our lives for our anniversary. That left the 12th, 19th, and 26th for our wedding. Well the 19th and 26th was too close to my birthday (there will be no combining anniversary and birthday gifts overe HERE!) so that left us with the 12th! Thhhhe End.

    My 30th birthday was a Monday and then my wedding was that Saturday.  The wedding overshadowed the birthday and I just ended up going out for tapas with my then-FI.  Honestly, it was kind of a bummer because it was my 30th and all, and my Fiance (now H) had a big bash for his.  Now though, it doesn’t matter at all that our anniversary is that close to my birthday.
