Our is completely meaningingless. We wanted May (which was fully booked over a year in advance) so we went for the last available Saturday date in April at our venue. It’s three years, one month and two weeks after our first date, but that’s hardly a major miletone.

We had an outdoor ceremony, so we picked May because the weather would be nice, but not too hot yet. The day is now significant, which is what I think is important. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ours was picked so people would have some free days to count towards there trip for our Destination Wedding since it’s on Easter weekend.  It is meaningless, but not anymore ๐Ÿ™‚

Ours is also meaningless. It was just the easiest. It’s holiday weekend for the Canadian out of country-ers and it worked with the military and immigration timelines we’ve been given. Hopefully that’s the date it stays.

 

I would have loved to have had a “ber” wedding (September, October, Novemeber, December) with a “cleaner” number just because it sounds nicer and I’m a bit fickle about things like that but it was not in the cards. May 19th hasn’t grown on me yet, but I’ll learn to love it.

Mine has no meaing at all. originally we were going to do our anniversary, but that would be memorial day weekend, skip. the three weeks prior all have close birthdays that we didn’t want to steal with our wedding date.  one of my BM’s is the Maid/Matron of Honor in a wedding the weekend after our anniversary, so we went with two weekends after! June 10th it is

None whatsoever. We picked a Saturday in the fall, and were careful to steer clear of birthdays and holidays.

Ours was picked based on the venue’s availability. We just knew we wanted July. I was hoping for the 24th but it was booked so we settled for the 17th.

puddingpop: we chose ours for that exact reason too!

originally we wanted it in january, but my little bro and his missus are having their first baby, and i really didnt want them to miss out or be uncomfortable. and then our photographer had this date avaliable. I dont think you have to have a date tht is meaningful, because forever after it will be meaningful!

Completely meaningless. It was one of the only times that worked with our work schedules while it was warm out so we could have it outdoors in our backyward ๐Ÿ™‚

I leaned toward our date because I thought it would be easy for Fiance to remember and we both like the fall.Then we found out after we picked the date that it is the same date as his mom and stepdad’s anniversary, so that is cool.

Ours isn’t a specialy day for us at all (yet!) – we knew we wanted December because we’ll be on winter break, I wanted to avoid my older brother’s birthday (10th) and didn’t want to get too close to Christmas, so, December 3rd it is!
