  • Wedding: November 2012

We’re tying the knot on our 14 year anniversary. I knew that when we finally got married I wanted it to be the same date as the day he asked me to be his girlfriend, November 25… since wev’e been celebrating that date for soooooo long, it means a lot to me.  It happens to be a Sunday this year (damn leap year or it would have been on a Saturday), but oh well, it’s a weekend and it is perfect.

My FI’s birthday is September 25th.  My birthday is February 25th.  We both wanted a late spring/early summer wedding so May 25, 2013 it is.

  • Wedding: October 2012

October is my favorite month, but the specific date was chosen because we’re having a Destination Wedding and my little bro is still in college, so I thought it would be best to line it up with his fall break.

It was pretty easy! It was the last Saturday available at our venue. Worked out perfectly though!

I originally wanted to get married on 11.12.13, but that’s a Tuesday I believe and we wanted a Saturday wedding. Then, we decided we wanted to get married in June, since it’s a summer month but not super-hot where we live. The first of the month just happened to fall on a Saturday, so yippee! ๐Ÿ™‚ (AND this date won’t interfere with my school schedule!)

We’re definitely aiming at having it be on June 8 2013 (we haven’t booked a venue though yet). It will be our 10 year anniversary, we’re high school sweethearts. June 8th just to happens to fall on a Saturday so it’s meant to be!!!

I originally wanted to get married in June but i’m starting to have doubts as to whether it will happen or not. I will get married whenever the Navy lets me lol.

May in Nassau, not to hot, not cold, the date was a week after my Period that month so I would not have to worry about that one.

We had the option of 5/11/13 and 5/18/13 (after deciding we couldn’t wait until Fall) and went with 5/11/13 because all of the numbers are in odd and in order from smallest to largest. ๐Ÿ™‚ Little OCD came out…

We had been engaged for a few months without setting a date. I have been finishing my thesis in grad school, and our original plan was to have a long engagement so that I could finish my thesis, start working, and we would have 2 full incomes to save up and pay for the wedding. But as life would have it, that did not hapen at all. I’ve been having a lot of health problems and after my insurance wouldn’t cover a couple of needed trips to the ER or a trip to my regular doctor because we’d maxed out my policy (and immediately after the wedding, they even stopped covering my prescriptions, including my birth control), we talked about it and both of us asked the other about moving up our date so that I could get on his health insurance. We both realized that spending another $10,000 on out of pocket health expenses while saving $5000 for a wedding didn’t really make much sense. And we’d already been living together for a year so in our hearts we were already married.

So we called up our families. We talked about eloping, but I was having a really hard time with a city hall wedding not feeling spiritual/religious enough for me. And the idea that my mom wouldn’t be there was really upsetting me. But we wanted to do something right away in case I got really sick again. My mom called me back and asked if DH celebrated cinco de mayo (he’s Puerto Rican so I told her no). She said they had great flights for that weekend, and we decided that would be a fun anniversary date. I called to tell my brothers and they ended up flyng down too. So our elopement changed into a small, at-home wedding with immediate family and our closest friends.

It was perfect, but definitely stressful. We literally called everyone up right after we set the date to tell them and they all hesitated and asked what year. And we answered, yes cinco de mayo, as in less than one month from now. But I love that it’s such a memorable day, and 05-05-12 just looks good. And as stressful as it was to plan everything in a month, I think it turned out beautiful. So now we’re trying to take a trip back home to celebrate with the rest of my family that couldn’t make it and we’ll try to have our honeymoon for our one year annviersary instead.
