Now obviously I can’t list every number in the poll so I’m going to go with general catagories. We’ve moved our date three times for various scheduling reasons. I was wondering if anyone else had moved their date, and if so how many times and if you’re in a sharing mood I’d like to know why. I’m just curious that’s all!

We’ve changed it once. We got engaged in April 2011 and intended on getting married in September 2012. Originally we were planning a destination wedding in Maui. We had everything booked – the venue, caterer, hotel, etc. But my FI’s mother became ill – not terminally, but to the point that it would have been really uncomfortable for her to endure such a long flight. So without question and without anyone asking us to, we cancelled everything.
No big deal. We had already been together for a long time so a long engagement didn’t really bother us.

@renwoman: Well, we’ve been engaged since 8 Feb. 2008. TBS, we’ve moved our date a shit ton a lot since we’ve been engaged forever a while.
To put it into perspective, our first wedding date was 19 Feb. 2011. Now we’re planning for 2015.

I guess we changed it twice? We chose our date, then changed it to a different day in March, then went back to our original date.

never! We didn’t have a date until we found a venue available (short 8 month engagement!) sooooo as soon as we had a date we were financially locked to it!

Never. We got engaged in March 2012 and 6/21/14 was our first choice from the beginning. We thought about moving it up to 6/1/13 but we decided not to 🙂

We moved the month around a bit before settling on a specific month, then chose a Saturday that we could both get off. Then we just changed it once (before we had anything ordered or dates set in stone) when we realized the Saturday we chose was the same day as my cousin’s going away bash.

We picked 6/20/14 and placed a deposit on our venue. Venue calcelled on us in July and we had to start a new venue search. The next place we fell in love with only had 6/21/14 so we took it:). (It was my preferred date anywAy but wouldn’t have worked with our 1st venue)
it turned out ok in the end:)

We changed it once. Originally we wanted December 7th but then we actually went to go and tour the venue they told us they also had the 20th of December available and that it was $3,000 cheaper than the 7th so we went ahead and booked the 20th.

Never. We got engaged Febuary 29, 2012 and had July 10, 2014 picked out way before we even got engaged. It’s my Nana’s birthday and sadly she passed away in 2006. Since then I always wanted to get married on her birthday since she means so much to me.
