I liked the look of it plus I always wanted a Friday evening wedding.  Win-Win

To us, it symbolizes “two becoming one” and I am a COMPLETE number person…so, it just fit. 

We’re gov’t employees, so the holiday is a bonus…we have veterans in our family that we intend to honor at our reception.

We originally picked the date because we got engaged on 12.21 (of 2008, but still) and met on 8.8.08. So, a total symmetry thing! We later decided to scrap the plan and get married a year earlier because we were tired of waiting, but we’re still throwing a party at our venue (hey, the deposit’s been paid) on that day.

I’ve seriously dreamed about an 11.11.11 wedding since I was a kid.  When my fiance and I first started dating I always joked that if we were to get married that would have to be the day, no questions asked ;].  When we officialy decided to get married in early 2010 the deal was sealed. 

But since we’re getting married outside of our hometown we’re having the wedding on 11.11.11 and the party on 11.12.11.  So we get two fun days!

I’ve always thought the number 11 to be a lucky number for me. And for whatever reason, I seem to be drawn to this number. I seem to always be looking at a clock at 11:11 or 1:11 and I met my Fiance on the 11th. For me, it just seemed very right and cosmic for us to pick this date.

My fiance thought it sounded cool- his idea. It didn’t even occur to me that the date would be so popular for weddings when we booked our venue, glad we did it early! Laughing

I’m married but my daughter was born at 11:11am, so I have a very sentimental attachment to those numbers.

I think the date is cool, but we got engaged on my birthday 02.02.2011 and are getting married on his… 11.11.11! He will always have that day off from work & won’t forget our anniversary 🙂 I’m in love w our date!!!

I am OCD about numbers. 11 being my favorite. So 11.11.11 is the ideal unltimate repeating number, and I have been dreaming of this day for years!  The running joke when I was single was, “she’s got her day, now she just needs a groom”, haha

And yes, the cheaper “Friday, off-peak date”, makes it a bonus as well 🙂
