We picked our date because he wouldn’t get married during football season. Seriously. 🙂

In all honesty, we picked our wedding date because my fiance is starting grad school two weeks after we get hitched, and it’s a week after we finally graduate college! So… not a LOT of time. I wish there was a better story, but really, it’s because we’re so in love we can’t stand the thought of not living together for another year!

We picked our date because it’ll be our 8-year dating anniversary. This way, Fiance can’t forget anniversaries, or else he’ll be in big trouble! lol

  • Wedding: June 2010

We knew that we would need to get married in the summer because he’s a teacher. June 19 is about a week after his school year ends, so we are doing it as early as possible. We didn’t want to wait until later in the summer because of the heat, and this way we have the whole summer to be newlyweds 🙂

@August15bride–our choice was also made around football season.  We also liked spring, so May made a lot of sense.

We originally picked NYE, because that’s when my husband proposed.  But my dad advised to not pick something around the holidays.  Instead, my husband suggested we get married in between our birthdays (we were born one week apart) so we could eat cake for a whole week every year!   I agreed because I love my husband and cake.

I thought it would be special to get married on my parents’ and grandparents’ anniversary (6.12) and happens to fall on a Saturday next year. Even better!

  • Wedding: September 2010

FH wanted a fall wedding.  His cousin was getting married this August and I didn’t want to have it too close to theirs.  25 is our lucky number — the day we met, our first kiss, our first date, his birthday, etc. so we thought about getting married on a 25.  Sept 25th doesn’t hold anything special for us (yet!) so we decided to create another memory on a 25.

We knew we wanted to get married in September. And we tossed around a few dates but ultimately our venue only had one date available. Though now I kind of wish we had chosen July or August. I’m getting impatient!

We originally wanted to get married August 21, 2010 (my parents anniversary) but the reception venue was booked. We decided to go with September 25, 2010 instead because autumn is the best thing in Upstate NY.

  • Wedding: August 2008

Our date/season was dictated by our officiant.  The mister and I met while attending a Jesuit university where we were both really involved in student life and had a personal relationship with the President of the Univ.  The one <span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”text-decoration: underline”>definite thing we wanted was for him to officiate our wedding and we let him dictate what time of the year worked best for his schedule (summer).  We then looked into the academic calendar and picked a weekend before any of the students would be moving back on campus.
