- Wedding: August 2018 - Banquet Hall/Conference Center
Whatever Saturday was available in August with our venue lol.
(We were limited by a bunch of cultural factors and our personal schedules, but after narrowing all that down, we decided on mid-to-late August so that we could honeymoon over Labor Day weekend).

- Wedding: January 2017 - Elliston Vineyards
We got engaged on new years day, about a week later we were discussing possibilities. He said why not do it a year from today? BAM – January 7th it was. (plus it’s much cheaper to do things in the off season November to March)

We’re getting married March 24, the same date as our first date! It is a special date to us and happened to be on a Saturday!

We were struggling with choosing a date (we’re doing a destination wedding so it doesn’t really help narrow it down too much – the world is our oyster!). We ended up deciding on our anniversary date, March 1st! It’s a good time to travel to the Caribbean and the date has significance 🙂

This is a question I just don’t understand being repeated over and over. I mean, surely you have an idea of time of year you want to get married. Then you find out available dates for your venue & go from there…. or if there’s a special date that’s important to you, then choose it. Maybe I’m just in a bitchy mood (hey, it happens) but shit, if you have that much problem picking a date, I’d hate to imagine how you will make any of the other million decisions there are to be made when it comes to planning a wedding.

We wanted to get married on the date we started dating in October, which falls on a Saturday this year. Every venue we visited was already booked for that date (we were looking at venues back in August!), so then we just went for whatever date our preferred venue had available in fall. We had to choose between November 10th and 17th and went with the 10th. A lot of people suggested doing a Friday or Sunday wedding, but our venue only hosts one wedding per weekend!

I picked a date with nice warm weather and picked a day that wouldn’t inconvenience people (so Saturday). People would just have to take one day off (Friday) to fly in, party on Saturday, and then fly back Sunday and get back to work Monday. Or they would have the option to fly in Saturday morning and leave Sunday if they didn’t want to miss work.

We were both in grad school 3 hours apart from each other so our only options were over Christmas break or the summer after we graduated. I hate the heat, so we decided to try and make Christmas work. The way the dates fell in 2016/17 we had the day after finals, Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, or Jan 7th. School started back for DH on Jan 9th. We didn’t want to do it on an actual holiday since people generally have plans. We checked with our parents and siblings and they could all make Jan 7th work, so we booked the church and that was that! Also living in a small town so we had time to figure out what we wanted to do for a reception venue after the date was set.

My parents begged me to wait until I graduated college before getting married….So we’re getting married the weekend after I graduate 🙂

We wanted to make sure it was not in the craziness of the Holiday Season (from Thanksgiving to New Year’s). And we definitely did not want it around both of our birthdays.

My original venue fell through. I already had my photographer so I had to play around when she was available which was a pain. We wanted a fall wedding. I wanted a November date. Photographer had availability in October. So we chose 10/28/18 (and I love Halloween).

Our wedding date June 16 is the anniversary of our reuniting after many years apart…it’s also Bloomsday, the date that everything occurs in James Joyce’s Ulysses.

Due to circumstances we had a window between end of April and and end of July possibly beginning of August. I liked the first of May. And its a Tuesday, the lucky day for getting married in jewish tradition. So I called my chosen wedding planner and ask if she was available. She was. From there she checked back with the officiant and photographer I chose and we had my dream date set.
