    My parents celebrate both. They usually go out for a nice meal for both and get each other a little something ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’re getting married on our Dating Anniversary!

    One anniversary is enough for me. So we will be doing wedding anniversary only once we are married.

    We’ll be getting married in one month and we plan on only doing our wedding anniversary. We don’t do much for our dating anniversary now anyway so it won’t be weird to not celebrate it. I honestly can’t remember what our “official” dating date is, we basically just picked a day around when we started seeing each other so it’s not even marking a special occaision.

    stephisaur:  so lucky! Originally we wanted our wedding on our dating anniversary too (one less date to remember for DH!), but dates and venues didn’t work out.

    At this point, we just celebrate our wedding anniversary. We’ve been married too long to worry about a date-versary ๐Ÿ˜‚

    We celebrate our dating anniversary, or engagement anniversary, and our wedding anniversary. We ended up getting married so close to Labor Day that we really can’t go out and celebrate it the way we wanted to so we have the other two dates to do something special.

    snowflake2016:  Last year, we had decided that it would be the last year we celebrated our “dating anniversary” because we would be getting married that fall. However, as our dating anniversary approaches (next month), I’m finding myself sad not to celebrate it. It’s something we did for four years. Growing up, my parents only ever celebrated their wedding anniversary, but their dating anniversary was always acknowledged.

    Somewhere in the vicinity of our ‘dating anniversary’ we might go “hey this is about the time we met” and then continue with our day.  I’m not one for making up a bunch of anniversaries, so it’s not something we’ve ever actually celebrated – celebrating our marriage will be enough for us.  We might have held off the wedding until that point but I’d have already been back at work for a new school year and the weather would have been super hot.  Easier not to bother.

    I can barely get that man to remember my birthday. One anniversary is more than plenty for him to remember. lol

    We made up our dating anniversary because we don’t really know the actual day. So this year we will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary only. I have never really seen the point in a dating anniversary and definitely not an engagement anniversary.

    Just the wedding anniversary. We didn’t even celebrate dating anniversaries when we were dating – we rarely remembered it was our anniversary on the day of! The only time we celebrated a dating anniversary was when we hit the 10-year mark after our first date.
