@msbadger7: We did some of our day after pics at the Starbucks we went to at the end of our first date! We also did a s’mores bar since that’s the dessert we ordered at dinner on our first date.

Probably not.  Our first date was at a friend’s birthday party, and he’s the best man, so it may come up but we aren’t planning anything specifically to reference it.  It was just talking and then making out in a bar while we were both pretty wasted, so…nothing super special worth commemoration.

Ummm no. Leathal Weapon and wedding don’t exactly mix.

We met online and our first “meeting” was at a Starbucks. But our first “real” date after that was a day in NYC. We spent a lot of time hanging out in Central Park, going to the zoo, and just sitting around in different spots and talking, getting to know each other. One of the areas was Bethesda Fountain, so we are having our ceremony there!

My original idea was to get married the day after what would have been our 3rd dating anniversary but the place was booked.  In hindsight, thank goodness since the weather on that day was AWFUL and the weather on our day was PERFECT!

Absolutely not!  I hate to admit this, but our first date was to go see the first sparkly vampire movie.  I knew absolutely nothing about it except that it was a vampire flick.  We went opening weekend and were wondering why there were all these 12 year-old girls lined up for it.  He told me that I was never allowed to pick a movie again…lol…Maybe that’s why it took a year for us to get serious about dating…

Instead of doing table numbers we did names. So a few of the tables were named after the places we went on our first date. 

@msbadger7: I agree with doing the grooms cake a cold stone cake!

@msbadger7: A Cold Stone dessert station would pretty much be the coolest thing ever. You should go for it!

@liartist: Off topic, but your ceremony site is beautiful.

Gosh I hope not. Our first date ended up with me having about twenty stitches in my face, a concussion and amnesia. 

We’re both semi pro bike racers and I landed bad off a jump. ๐Ÿ™‚

All kidding aside, we will probably incorporate bikes into the party in same way, shape or form.

Not our first date. But we are going to stop by our high school and take some pictures on the way to our photography site. We started dating in high school, so we (I) think it’d be cute. ๐Ÿ™‚

It would be fun if you guys had that same ice cream flavor for just the two of you to enjoy with your wedding cake!

The general concept of incorporating your first date into your wedding sounds so sweet!

We used to go boxing a lot, and our first date was actually boxing each other (we were friends before we dated, so it’s less weird!).  I think bringing the gloves and heavy bag to the wedding might set the wrong tone, haha!
