    I love spring weddings! i think May would be really nice (plus it might fall on memorial day weekends in the future which will make for great anniversary getaways!)- where are getting married?

    We chose are date based on my brothers deployment overseas – we really wanted a spring wedding but he was set to leave in late february/early march – it was either go ahead and plan it or wait another 7 months till he got back – we opted for planning, we didnt want to wait – so we picked the farthest date out with my brother still being in the states so thats how we landed in mid February.

    I think it’s tough to plan dates around certain numbers and such, just my opinion.  HS graduations are usually in late June, I believe, so the 7th probably wouldn’t conflict.

    Are you set on a Friday/Sunday wedding?  Lucky numbers aside, usually Saturdays are easier to do.

    We picked ours sort of randomly.  We wanted June, and it needed to be after school was out for summer (my husband’s a teacher)  June 12 it was.

    @TequilaSunrise: Oh yeah, if you could swing a Saturday, I’m sure your guests, bridal party, etc. would really appreciate it!

    Your 7th anniversary date is a good one looking at significance, and also I think it would be cheaper when booking things.  Friday is also a cheaper date for venues and such.  Everything has it’s pros and cons… I would go for your anniversary date (that is my plan as well), although if you want to have another special day to celebrate each year, maybe 7/7 or 6/7 would be better 🙂

    I voted for your anniversary date, but if you can swing a Saturday that works for you, that might be better (depending on what kind of reception you’re planning)!
