I was curious about why other people chose their wedding date and if it had any meaning to them. Or, if, like me, you chose your date only to find out LATER that it had more meaning that you had origionally intended.

I wanted 12-31-10 but the church has those NYE watch meetings, so I went with 1-1-11. I am glad that I did because it is such a cool date!

We chose our date 7-2-11 because it is my sisters bday and his brothers bday – we thought it would make it a great way to include both siblings/families in the day

Although we wanted a fall wedding, schedules just didn’t work out that way. We started dating on March 15, but since that is not a Saturday, we picked January 15th. Everyone thinks we’re crazy for having a winter wedding in Minnesota, but we’re SO excited 🙂

Good question, I like it.
I chose June 19th because I wanted a long Summer’s day, well I don’t about that in the UK lol, but a day with more daylight hours. I think this is because my birthday for example seems such a short day as it’s in December. Also there are quite alot of birthdays in July, my best friend got married in August this year and I do like the month June. Plus alot of bad things happened to my mum’s family in June and I want it become a happy month for my Mum.

i originally wanted a date with some kind of meaning, and ended up with a date that means nothing to either of us and is all odd numbers which i (oddly) hate. we chose the date because it was the one date our venue had open for next fall. i love numbers and was momentarily bummed about 9-17-11 but i got over it. i would have loved 9-10-11 but i’ve heard from other people that you have to plan so much stuff in advance for that date, since it’s sooo popular and vendors are booking up early. kind of like yesterday – weddingwire reported that over 33,000 couples were registered for a wedding yesterday (the normal average is about 5,000).

Lol here was our process:
- I want to get married in October. But we already have a family wedding in October.
- September and November are too close to October.
- We have a family wedding in August… July is too close and can’t be ready by June.
- Let’s do December! Crap! December is “in season”
- Let’s do January! Crap! FI’s work schedule won’t allow it.
- Let’s do February! No objections? Awesome!
- February 5? Nope. Superbowl weekend
- February 14? Too close to valentines day
- February 19? Too close to FI’s birthday
- February 26? Any issues? Any issues? DONE.

The venue was available on July 17th. I wanted the 24th but it was already booked.

It’s the date of our 7 year dating anniversary!! We didn’t really do it on purpose, it just so happens that June 30th, 2012 falls on a Saturday. When we were looking at possible dates and saw that June 30th was on Saturday, we knew that it was meant to be our wedding date. 🙂

The venue kinda chose it for us 🙂

I wanted May or June, and we knew it would be in 2012. I was thinking 6/9/12 (multiples of three! woohoo!), but my good friend and bridesmaid will be getting married two weeks earlier and won’t be back from her honeymoon until that exact day. So we picked the next week. End.

FI works out of state March-mid September.
September-November were out because of many weekend commitments for our family and friends.
So we figured, New Years Eve would be fun!

It wasn’t a long weekend, or close to a long weekend. It is the end of summer when the weather has settled down. It’s not hunting season (we are hunters!). That was basically it!

I would like to say it was something great and meaningful but it really wasn’t. We wanted either a Spring or Summer wedding. We are getting married in New Orleans and my FH has a major fear of a hurricane happening so we had to mark off June 6th-Nov 6th. I am a teacher and about 6 people in the wedding party are too. I looked at when I would have spring break so I would have time free for a honeymoon and those in our wedding wouldn’t have major issues with taking off work. Oh and it was either the week we picked or the following week and there was no way I was getting married on April Fool’s day. The Sunday was picked for a longer weekend because most guest are traveling and we wanted to be able to use Friday night for my bachelorette party, Saturday for rehersal, Sunday wedding…..Plus Sunday was $500 cheaper.
