Celebrate both anniversaries in a world of so much uncertainty find as much as you can to celebrate and declare your love for each other

Is there any reason you can’t have an anniversary celebration on both dates? Personally I’d choose the ceremony date over the legal date, but if you and your husband can’t agree, a good compromise would be celebrating both. After all, both dates have some significance in your relationship.

Just celebrate both.

Celebrate the first date privately, since it was private, and celebrate the second date more “publicly” since that’s when more people are aware of it.

Why not both?

I’d personally consider 8/17 to be your actual anniversary since it was your wedding day and 10/3 to be the reception in honor of your marriage. It seems more accurate to me that way. But there is no law that says you can’t recognize both in some way.

In my book, your anniversary date is the day you got married, so that would be the August date.

I’m in a similar boat! We got married on our dating anniversary in December, but are having the wedding celebration this June (unless we are forced to cancel/postpone). We plan to celebrate both, but fully consider the December date our true anniversary.
