Thinking about this more, in a way it might be less stressful overall because there are some aspects you HAVE to let go because you just can’t do it all. I had 8 months (exactly to the day, Christmas Day proposal) and I think if I had more than that I would have really gotten crazy, I was adding things left and right at the end! As long as you are able to let go of some control I think you would be just fine. And I think it’s romantic!

What does 12-12-12 have anything to do with your relationship? Is he a mathmatician? The wedding and the date should be something meaningful as it pertains to you. I would not agree to rushing this wedding, tell him this is too soon, you want time to plan something nice and thoughtful for the two of you. No dice.

I tthink if it’s important to him, and you guys could have a wedding you’d be happy with (maybe not your ideal wedding, but one that you’d enjoy) then you should do it.
Otherwise, ask him how he feels about 3-1-13 or 31-3-13 (etc)

Sure youncouldmplan it. 3 months, but a receptiHe a year or twonout might not really happen. It would break my heartbtonget married without my parents and best friends around.n decide what is most important to you and then see if you can do it. For example, could you do a small destination wedding thN? Would your immediate family and best friends come? If its a Wednesday they would have to take a lot days off of work which is hard at that time of year.
Fornme my wedding day was an amazing, wonderful, special day. Yours should be too- but what that looks like comes in so many different flavors

We’re discussing it and we’re also discussing 11-12-13 which happens to be the day after Veteran’s Day, so would potentially work with people’s schedules. Thanks everyone for your input! 🙂

I think planning your wedding around a “cool date” is a little silly. There is alot to do – AND, don’t you want time to enjoy it? Plan, have a shower, bachelorette, etc etc etc. Tell him, you don’t want to rush and when the time comes you guys can pick another special date (your anniversary, 11-12-13, a holiday, whateva).

Our date is 12/12/12, but we’ve had it planned for months, so we gave ourselves time.
My family is HUGE numbers geeks. We always get excited about dates and numbers. We celebrate pi day 3.14 at 1:59…. cuz we’re nerdy like that.
So – we are getting married at 12:12pm on 12/12/12. Incidentally…. my daughter just turned…. you guessed it. 12!
I did not find that anyone increased prices. In fact, because it’s a Wednesday, our venue is about 1/4 of the price as if we held it on a Saturday.
I probably would not *rush* a wedding…. to have a certain date. Unless that is something that is your “thing”. Although ours is at a winery, and it’s pretty much a destination wedding – with a wedding planner that we use…. so there really isn’t that much for me to do. We don’t even have our planning session until next Thursday – that’s where we will decide food, flowers etc. So, it would have been totally possible for me to not even have started thinking about it, and I could get everything done.
I do like 11/12/13. so that might be an option
