Thanks ladies! 🙂 I loved my grano to death & it was so sad when she was taken. She was the perfect little grandmother! The one who always makes you things even when you don’t need them! & her house that she lived in at the time was like a heaven to me, haha! Because she would make dolls all the time & I LOVED them! 🙂

Congratulations. I wanted Oct 16th to be our date as it does hold signifigance to us, but his family couldn’t make it that weekend so we went back to the drawing board. Our date is completely random. Fiance had a dream about it and that’s how 1-1-11 came to be for us. We’re sorta a little weird because we do believe we get signs and he felt very deeply that this was a sign and that it felt “right”, plus he thought the whole 1111 thing was cool (men) I couldn’t come up with a day he liked better so alas here I am as a 1-1-11 bride. But really being wed in the winter was our dream to begin with so I’m glad this date could work for his family.

i always wanted to be married in march though around st patricks day but alas…. that would have meant waiting over 18 months! so a year it is 🙂 lol

Nope not at all. We wanted September, and due to Jewish holidays, Sept. 11th, and Labor Day (and the fact that we needed a Friday due to budget), the 24th it was!

Our anniversary is 11/11, we got engaged on that date, and our wedding date is 2 days later, 11/13!

It is my grandparents’ anniversary… and my God Mother’s… and my mom’s 2 best friends’ anniversaries as well… 4 couples will be celebrating with us!!! (We didn’t pick this date, but it was the only one available for the church… we later realized how cool it was that we will have so many people we love spending their anniversary with us on our wedding day! Two of the couples are celebrating 40 years!)

Thanks, MrsJellyBea. I totally understand what you are saying about guys wanting weird dates. My Fiance was going on about how “cool” it would be to get married on 10/10/10. Now, we are getting married on “Sweetest Day”, so that’s cool enough for him, lol

We were having a Sunday wedding, and September 2010 was one of the few months that worked with all family members. Chose labor day weekend so we could have an evening wedding and people wouldn’t have to go to work the next day. So no real significance. I’m not a fan of the numbers in the date at all, but this is so minor that I don’t make a big deal out of it.

We picked July 24th for a few reasons. We were both born on a 2, we got together July 2nd, so when it came to picking a date, it was either we wait another year for July 2nd to be on a Saturday, or we pick something else in July (our fav month). It just happened to be that the 24th was on a Saturday. What we came up with is that we would have the 2 for our birthdays, the day we got together, and us as individuals, then we would have the 4 for us joining our lives together and being one. I know, it seems sappy but it makes perfect sense to us. I can’t wait!! <3

we’re also keeping with our original anniversary. we met on leap year 2/29, so we can’t stick with that one unless we wanted to wait awhile, but we got engaged a year later 2/28, and we’ll be married one year after that, this 2/28. it was actually an accident for us to get married then, we wanted march but it kept being pushed up and that ended up being our date.

We’re getting married on our three year dating anniversary…July 24th. It makes it easy to remember!

I hope not…We’re getting married on Memorial Day. One of my Vietnamese coworkers said in their culture it was “horrible karma because it is a day about dead people”.
