Last night my fiancé asked me if I wanted to celebrate, as he said, our “negative” anniversary, 1 year till our wedding. And this got me thinking. The short answer is it’d be nice to go out to dinner, and maybe have a mock proposal or something. What do you think, hive?

Lol, when you’re fiancé asks you to marry him, again, but pretending it’s the first time, in front of a group of people and everyone claps for you, and if it’s at a restaurant maybe you get a free dessert. My fiancé and I haven’t done this, but we like joking about it.

I can’t see us doing something like that. We didn’t have a negative anniversary because we eloped on the fly.

Mine’s coming up too, and I doubt we’ll do anything. I’ll probably say something to him, but that’ll be it.

For ours we were in different states, but we definitely talked about it and would have done something if we were together. FI and I are kind of sentimental like that. We don’t make it a huge production but we like to make mention of little milestones.
I remember when FI so proudly informed me when our two months after meeting each other “anniversary” was coming around. He tried to make me guess what was coming up, as if I had forgotten something I should have known! I laughed in his face, and I still feel bad to this day. I never forgot the date after that, and he never remembers!
I also got a box of popsicles for a “pre-mother’s day gift” this year. For the future mother of his children.. LOL

It reminds me of the “unbirthday” from Alice in Wonderland 🙂
I probably wouldn’t do it, although the free dessert is tempting, lol.

We’re going to dress up and go to dinner at our ceremony venue then will sit outside to watch the sunset. (We want to know about what time the sun sets for scheduling purposes) Afterwards we’ll probably go home and watch a movie and have a glass of wine. We’ll definitely note the special-ness of the date, but wouldn’t take it as far as to have a mock proposal.

I’m married, so this doesn’t really apply to me.
But to me, the word negative just doesn’t go along with celebration. Why not call it the “Pre-wedding dinner” or something like that.

We’re celebrating by painting and tearing out carpet in our first house were about to close on! Maybe get some wine and spend our first night together there!

@ladyamalthea: no…one proposal is enough for me.

Our dating, proposal, and future wedding anniversary is all the same date, so we will be doing something fancy on 6/19 this year because it is our every-anniversary-day, not our future wedding day. Otherwise we would definitely note it, in a “Oh hey we are getting married in a year!” way, but that is about it

@JaneyDcat: I wouldn’t have called it negative, but my fiancé did, and because I agree with you, and maybe because I sometimes have an odd sense of humor, I thought it was funny. 😛
And I understand that my FH and I can be very silly people, but it’s still fun to see what everyone else thinks!

- Wedding: August 2013 - The Liberty House
I think the fake proposal is going a little too far, but my FI and I had dinner at our wedding venue- he hadn’t seen it yet, and it was nice to be there at the time when our wedding would be held the next year. I called it “minus 1”
