Ours has no meaning at all! It was the first weekend of the British school summer holidays (I’m a teacher so tied to school holidays) and our church and choice of venue were both available that weekend. We ended up going for the Sunday of that weekend because the venue guaranteed us exclusive use- didn’t want to bump in to another bride- especially if she looked better than me! haha. So unromantic and totally logical choices I’m afraid!

Ours was pretty meaningless–it was the first date we COULD get married once we decided to elope!

Our was meaningless. We wanted to get married in August and just picked a random date.

Ours is meaningless as well.  We just wanted it as close to the end of summer as we could get before school started.

  • Wedding: April 2011

Ours started off meaningless…the church we got married in is really competitive, so we basically took what we could get (when I say it’s competitive, I mean they open the phone lines at 8am on March 1st to book for the following year, and you spend the day calling until you get through).  We ended up with our second choice date and time.  

We realized after the fact that it was almost the same day as our dating anniversary (married 4/9, started dating 4/11).  And we ended up having the reception at the same venue where we went on our first date.  It wasn’t even planned, it was just the best value of what we looked at, we didn’t even remember until a few months after we booked it 🙂

My husband is a math/science geek, so he likes that our anniversary is two perfect squares. I think there is a joke to be made there about the two of us 🙂

Ours is pretty meaningless as well.  I’m a school teacher, so we needed to do a summer wedding, as my school doesn’t have any long breaks except for Christmastime, and the weather around Christmas in Pennsylvania is fickle with snowstorms.  I initially wanted June 30th, as soon as school got out, but FI’s brother will be graduating college in Orlando on June 29th in the evening, so June 30th was out.  July 7 was the next Saturday, so we went for it!  My first choice of reception venue was already booked that day (a year and a half out!), but we have a wonderful back-up venue as well.

While I might say July 7 is meaningless in how we picked the day…Fiance and I both have friends who got married on that day in 2007, and the Best Man’s birthday is also July 7th.

Ours has meaning, but it was an accident. We wanted it to be in April b/c I wanted a spring wedding, but we kept having conflict with the dates and had a hard time finding one that the rabbi, venue, and our family had free. So it got pushed up to the end of Feb, which happened to be the same date we met and got engaged.

We picked ours based on hotel rates for out of town guests (Oct was cheaper than March by $100!) And since Oct was in the middle of football season, we picked our dates based on the college football schedules.

Well, I wouldn’t say meaningless… since it’s now our aniversary. But we picked it based on availability and feasibility of us getting married!

Ours has no meaning either.  We just picked a date that was convenient for a number of reasons.
