Ours is meaningless…. we picked it because 7/7 is really easy to remember!

Ours has no special meaning to us. We picked it because that was the week we could both get off work for vacation. LOL

It just so happens to be one of my very good friend’s birthdays tho!

Yeah ours is meaningless… I wanted Oct (just b/c I like the fall and didn’t want the same month as my sister’s bday), but then we found that hotel prices were ALOT cheaper in Nov.  Since I wasn’t comfortable making my guests pay $500 for a room we went with the first week in Nov.

  • Wedding: June 2012

I had originally picked a complete meaningless date. I wanted a July wedding. We had to pick the first2 weeks of the month because we are taking a 5 week honeymoon. As we are both teachers, we wanted a couple of weeks after the honeymoon to come home, relax and gear up for another school year. So his church (he is Orthodox) informaed us either weekends in July we could do, were saints days and we were not allowed to be married on those days. I am not Orhtodox so I had no idea what the deal was. But we ended up changing the date to June, 30th. That is the day my grandparents got married. I’m actually not sure whether I like or dislike the fact that my wedding date now has”meaning”. I think that in reality, it’s just a day that WILL be special regardless of is previous significance or insignificance because it is YOUR WEDDING DAY!

Hah, we originally picked ours by pointing at the calendar, saying “this is good”, and making sure no graduations or other things conflicted.

Later we found out his grandmother’s anniversary is that day. Which was pretty neat to find out, since he’s the first grandchild to get married, but total coincidence.

@Pinksapphire: ours was completely random. We originally wanted to get married in September (even though our dating anniversary is in January) but Sept wasn’t available and only August was. That’s how it was decided!

YUP completely meaningless. But that’s what I like about it. It will hold amazing value and meaning in the future 🙂

We picked ours based on the fact that we wanted a July wedding (FI is a h.s. teacher) and it was the only weekend available at our sestiation resort.  Also, since we are having a destination wedding, we wanted to pick a week that most people would already want to take off (i.e. 4th of July).

Ours is meaningless.  if we had thought about it,  we could have brought it forward by just 2 weeks and that would have been the actual date we met……but we didnt think until afterwards.

I’m a teacher so I knew I wanted a summer wedding.  At first I was thinking late June, but one of my best friends, and bridesmaid, quickly told me that she had just found out she was pregnant and was due around July 4 and feared she may not make it to my wedding if I did at the end of June.  So, I decided to do it July 24 or in early Aug.  We have a ton of family bdays in July, so the 24 was the only option, Aug. 7 was our back up date.  Our venue was available on the 24th, so that was the date. 

Needless to say, it is no longer a “meaningless” date!

  • Wedding: March 2012

We picked our date around my Spring Break.  I work in a school and wanted a spring wedding so we picked the week of spring break.  I wanted the first saturday so we could go on a short honeymoon after or just relax for a week after and honeymoon in the summer, but the first saturday was St. Patrick’s Day and we didn’t want that, so the next saturday, March 24th, it is.

We picked ours based on price, venue availability, and that if we get married before the end of the year our tax refund will double LOL

Wasn’t your anniverary date also a “meaningless” date before you actually got together? The same holds for your wedding date.
