@futuremrsk18:  It’s just numbers so I don’t see what the big deal is. If you feel like getting married earlier is going to just stress you out more, then I think he should be more considerate. I would understand more if there was maybe a religious explanation for it.

I don’t think you should give up your vision just to have a “cool” anniversary date.  When it comes down to it, that’s the only benefit of doing this in such a rush.

No, I woudn’t rush the process just to have that date… it doesn’t really have any significance what so ever, right?

Think of it this way: You and your FH will always remember the date. I think it is a good date.

Personally, I wouldn’t because planning that in such a short amount of time is going to be tough.  Plus, it’s almost October – people are making holiday plans and may not budget any vacation and/or travel time they may need for the wedding.  I know my office already required vacation from November – January be submitted and approved by the end of August.

A fun date isn’t worth possible regrets about your wedding, imo.

 

Also, it will be 12/12/12 this year, but your yearly anniversaries won’t line up like that. (12/12/13, 12/12/14, etc.).  What about 11/12/13 if he wants a fun date? That’s at the end of 2013 like you were originally aiming for.

I can kind of understand the pull of dates, our wedding date was special to us because it is my husbands grandparents’ (the grandfather he’s named after) anniversary. At the same time these “number” dates that don’t have significance to you seem like less of a good reason to inconvenience yourselves. Also, your wedding date of course would always be 12-12-12, but, next year, your annivesary would be 12-12-13, less cute. My cousin has picked a similar date to get married and I am a bit frustrated because it’s in the middle of the semester, the middle of the week and >5 hours away (read: very inconvenient for my sister and I who she really wants to come to attend). All that so that she can have a date that is cute this year but never will be again!

I also think that if he wants to move the wedding up he should offer to step up and help with the planning, it’s not nice to put it all on you so that he can have a date he wants. 

edit: I like the 11-12-13 idea 🙂

i agree! it would be cool to have that date but it doesnt sound like the best option for yall. there just isnt enough time, in my opinion. and you want to be able to enjoy it and no regret rushing it just for the cool date 🙂

We found a lot of places jacked up their prices for 12/12/12 because it was so popular, and by January of this year, it was already booking up for most places that we looked at.  So be prepared to have a hard time finding a place and to pay a lot of extra money just for the date.

I would tell Fiance everything you said in your post.  Don’t do anything that you are going to regret.  You said you were originally planning for sometime later next year, what about 11/12/13.  That’s a cool date too.  If you are planning a Destination Wedding it shouldn’t be a problem.  I am getting married on 10/11/12 and it’s a Thursday Destination Wedding and it is working out great for everyone.
