DO NOT move your wedding date up if you can’t afford it. Unless you’re willing to cut your budget in half and plan a wedding/honeymoon you can afford now but don’t go into debt over some number on a calendar.

I’m with PP on this though – a ‘dating anniversary’ isn’t a big deal to me (I hate calling it an anniversary because I only believe in wedding anniversaries). I know the rough date of when we had our first date but only because it was Memorial Day Weekend. I would never make life decisions on a dating anniversary date. Whatever day you have your wedding will become the important date even if it’s different than April 1st. But if you must must must have this date then take your honeymoon in 2018 and keep your wedding budget low (can’t imagine a dinner for 15 people costing more than what you can save in a year).

I don’t understand why you have to wait so long to get married!

I vote for getting married on April 1st 2017 and having your honeymoon 6 months-1 year later.

You could also split the difference and have 2 anniversaries. October 1st 2017 is a Sunday.

I’d pick a different date. If you do it one week before or after it will be special because it’s one week before or after the day you got together and it’ll be inherently special because it’s your wedding day! Me personally, I’d want a new date for my wedding because that date would be special for it’s own reason. Our anniversary date is on my birthday, and that’s already kind of annoying that all the celebration for two major events is put in one day, and I’ve already told him specifically NOT to propose on that day and that we’re NOT getting married on that day because I want our proposal date and wedding date to be special for those reason only, not lumped together with my birthday and our dating anniversary 🙂

I’m an atheist so I wouln’t care. If your family is really religious then yeah move it to a non holiday. Most people celebrate Easter.

If your goal is to save for an extravagant wedding, a later date is probably better for that. I personally would rather marry earlier and have a simpler wedding.

serotonin:  If you give a lot to charity, you will get tax returns. If you are in school, you will get tax returns. Sometimes you end up paying more than you should due to a variety of circumstances, and the government will correct that, resulting in a tax return.

I would do wedding and honeymoon all at once. I delayed the honeymoon and honestly it isn’t the same as when you are all excited just after the wedding. Even a small wedding has costs that add up. Frankly, you should stop clinging to the April 1 date and be more flexible.
