Hello ladies I’m curious how did everyone pick their wedding date? I’m personally having a hard time with this one. Particularly curious about those who got legally married then had the big wedding which is our situation. Really any input would help Thnx

Some people choose a meaningful date to them (maybe their parent’s anniversary or something), or a season they love. I’d think about the kind of wedding you want and go from there. If it’s your dream to be married at the beach you probably won’t have a February wedding, etc.
Is your wedding going to be in Hawaii? If so, I’m very jealous 🙂

@travelsize: For us, it was simply a matter of venue availability. We knew we wanted our wedding to be sometime in the Fall, but exact date wasn’t important to us. Originally we were thinking September, but our favorite venue’s first available date was November 3rd, so November 3rd it was!

We had our legal wedding exactly one year before our religous ceremony. I actually love the fact that we used our same date twice. We legally wed on a Fri, and had our wedding the next year on a Sat.

We knew we wanted a fall date. I looked up the rainfall for the fall months in my area and picked the one with the least amount of yearly rain. We wanted a date toward to beginning of October to stay away from Halloween. Basically… it just kind of emerged on it’s own 🙂

we originally wanted a fall date, and outside (we live in canada). the only dates available at the venues we liked were in late fall.. and we thought it would be too cold. all the weddings i was picturing in my head were sunny and outside, so august 4th it was! what are you picturing in your head?

We just sort of picked it. It was available for our vendors and it’s a timeframe that worked with my immigration visa and his work schedule.

KatyElle hawaii is definetly a possibility but we r not 100% sure. Cant you see the indecisive theme comign along. we both gre up on Los Angeles and its where most our families live. Wa are moving to Hawaii in aboth 2 months so i say y not btu i know that it may be little of a strech to get our family and friends to make that trip i know ticktes are expensive.
tksjewelry Thats the best plan in the world i would love to use our legal wedding date but because we got legally married while he was on leave (he is in the navy which makes pickign a date that much harder) our anniversary is Dec 28 which i know is squeezed between two holidays which is fun for us not sure about weddings
FutureMsVW i kept joking about a halloween weddign which is why our tentitive date is Oct 27 2012 we want a weddign where our guest can have fun n even be a little goofy

Being a teacher I basically had to have a summer wedding (July or beginning of August) if we wanted an immediate honeymoon and time to relax as newlyweds, so I requested July. Our venue had the 13th and 27th available (Friday’s), but my Fiance wasn’t keen on getting married on a Friday the 13th so we chose the 27th. That’s it!

I really wanted a winter wedding, and loved the idea of December, but didn’t want it too close to Christmas. After he proposed, like 5 minutes after – lol… I looked at a calendar and noticed that Dec 1, 2012 was a Saturday. I loved the sound of 12-1-12 and then his Mom said that was the year his grandparents got married in 1945. That sealed the deal! 🙂

alrighty ladies just because i had to share with someone we finally came to a decition. Well mostly i did n he agreed we changed our date to dec. 28 2013 i know its almost 2 years away but its also our 3rd year anniversary so yay that makes me excited and since its well over a year away i think hawaii it is since family and friends would have ample time to plan ahead if they want to come. we have a date !!!!!
