We didn’t organise anything like birthdays, anniversaries, etc. We just picked a summer date that worked for us. He wanted 2012, I originally was a bit disappointed that he wanted to wait so long, but now I’m totally relieved that we’re having a two year engagement 🙂

First of all, like many of you, I picked my favorite month. In my case, that happens to be July. We looked at 7/3/10 because it adds up, but that is his parent’s anniversary, the day before the fourth, and the day after my birthday. So we went for 7/30/10, which actually works better for him as far as celebrating with me every year. Since we live/work on a farm/ranch, that’s right when they aren’t breeding or weaning or putting in any crops or doing any harvesting.

Originally I wanted Peonies to be in my bouquet, so this was one reason and I wanted a long day in terms of daylight, I liked the sound of it too.

Although our date is not set in stone I still feel like sharing lol. As long as I could remember I wanted a September / October wedding. So when we got engaged I knew exactly when I wanted it but then my Future Sister-In-Law (who got engaged 4 months before us) set her date for May of the same year which infuriated me because I knew my FIL’s were not going to be able to come for her wedding and then come for mine 4 – 5 months later due to cash issues and they also own their own business where they live so getting help would be a huge problem as well so I was panicking then I realized we could set our date around her’s give or take 3 – 4 weeks since when my FIL’s visit they usually stay for a month or so so I figured the beginning of July would be perfect since it’s close enough that the FIL’s will still be here and it’s far enough way from her wedding that I wont steal her thunder so hopefully if everything goes as planned our date will be July 5th. It being a friday and the day after a national holiday that year is a extra bonus!!

We chose (well I chose…lol) our date because it was the day we first met 2 years ago. I thought it would be something special to tell the future kids!
My younger cousin chose hers 13 days after mine. Her reason behind her date is:
READY FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She did a school project in high school that is required by the High School in our area to graduate, which is to plan your wedding, you have to do all the details: date, dress, flowers, venue, ect.
So when she got engaged she was like Oh yay…I already got it planned and pulled out the scrapbook she did in high school for the project.
All that was needed was to copy and paste the groom in,
In my opinion that is something really “special!”*
