  • Wedding: August 2011

Originally we chose 9-10-11 because it was exactly a year after we got engaged.  Of course we didn’t realize that everyone and their mother wanted to get married that day and a lot of vendors we wanted were already booked.  We didn’t want to wait more than a year to get married so we just bumped it up to 8-27-11.

Ok we were cheesy and picked 9/10/11 cause it was easy enough to remember.

How about 3/16/13 I would remember it because you subract 3 from 16 and get 13. But I think oddly like that…lol.

My date is 9.10.11 and I and we’re getting married at 12. I picked that date specifically for it being in order. Love it!!!

Honestly, we chose our wedding date because we wanted a long weekend anniversary every year (we are getting married on Labor Day weekend).  My parents’ wedding anniversary is also on Labor Day weekend and they get a mini-vacation every time they celebrate.  At first we didn’t want the same weekend as them, but they were all for it.  Easier to remember that way haha

We selected 7-7 simply because we both love the number 7, and it happens to be a Saturday. We did want to have wedding in July because we are having a destination wedding and July is the month when most of our family, friends and colleagues take their vacation and annual leave.

April rains A LOT too here where I live. I think May would be great, we had our e-party in May and it was perfectly sunny and warm (not too hot like now). And if you really like 1, why not using May 11? That’s double 1 πŸ˜€ And GEEZ! I just realized now, May 11 is my birthday LOL.

@Kamazing: that’s my birthday πŸ™‚ I think it’s a fantastic day to get married πŸ™‚

our ‘unofficial’ first date was on the 18th on the month. Our first ‘official’ date was the 18th of the next month.

So we wanted to do the 18th – originally we planned on Sept. 18th of last year, but Darling Husband went an extra semester due to an 8-month long internship, so we pushed it back. I looked for the next month that had a Saturday 18th and we picked June since it’s my birthday month and I always wanted to be a June bride anyway πŸ™‚

We had picked out 12/10/10 & quickly figured out it was a Friday & people had work. So we changed it to 12/11/10 on that Saturday. We didn’t even realize it was 12 11 10 at first, not even at all! haha Then I later found out my mamaw & papaw was married on 12/11 & my mom & step dad started dating on 12/11 ! I thought it was pretty neat–Seeing I found this all out after we got married. πŸ™‚

As far as tips, I would say if you are having an outside wedding maybe spring is to risky? But then again, it does rain in the summer also–Just not as much. We had ours in December & it snowed on our wedding day. But it didn’t start snowing until everyone including us was leaving after the reception. πŸ˜›

Huh. So you can tell I’m easily distracted… I found a numerology calculator. I don’t really know how all of this works, I just wanted something that I could easily key numbers into.

Our wedding date is a “match” – which I guess means it’s good for both of us? I got a kick out of the description of the personal day. For both of us:

“Executive Power. Today is your most powerful day, you are in charge and you have the resource and will power to make all the decisions and see them through. It’s a material day and money and possessions. If you can further your financial standing today is the day to push forward and make those gains.”

I’m totally obsessed with numbers. I knew that it needed to make some kind of mathmatical sense for me in order to deal with it. 12.11.10 was an obvious choice, since I wanted a winter wedding.

We wanted 6.9.12 because it’s multiples of 3 but that date was booked at our venue for a play so we took 6.23.12 instead and I told my Fiance to remind me every year cause I’m not good with numbers especially random numbers lol.

I love this post! Mine is 10/20/12 I just liked how it sounded and that our anniversary would always be 10/20. I like even numbers!

well, we picked 10.27.2012 because i <3 odd numbers, lol.  a little OCD, but there it is.  we wanted it when colors would be at their peak, which he claims is mid to late october around the twin cities and in SW wisconsin (since we’re not sure if we’re getting married at home in the metro or in his hometown of la crosse).  i’ve never lived there so i don’t know.  we don’t want to wait another year, and it kind of has to be on a saturday because of people traveling.  with 10 and 2012 already making 67% of our wedding date even, and his parents’ birthdays (BOTH of them!) on the 12th (making the 13th kind of weird and also on the early side for colors in full swing), that left the 27th to have an odd number.  couldn’t do it on the 20th either, since my parents (who split) got married on that date in 1979, plus that’s the date on which Darling Husband1 proposed to me in 2003.

We picked one that ‘wasn’t during a hunting season’…We had between July 15th and Aug 23rd. You laugh, but it was a long decision.

Also, we couldn’t do the last weekend in July since it’s my cousins birthday (BLAH) and August in Idaho is comparable to the temperatures in Hell.
