    I need a vote for other. We never celebrated our dating anniversary. We both forgot what day it was, haha. We do acknowledge the day we met, because it was valentine’s day. So we’ll probably keep doing that 🙂

    I vote no- only the wedding anniversary. You could mention something sweet to him- like remember this was the day we first met?  (or dating etc..) but no gift

    I’m not married, but I say do whatever the heck you want to! If it’s important to you, celebrate it. If it doesn’t really matter to you, then don’t. To each her own.

    I voted that we celebrate but don’t give gifts, but really, we just kind of acknowledge the day/time milestone. Our dating anniversary is the day after DH’s birthday, so we usually kind of roll them into one. Next month, we’ll be going on a trip to celebrate his 30th birthday as well as our 7th year of togetherness. =)

    We didn’t even really celebrate our dating anniversary before we were married, so nope we don’t celebrate it! To each his (her) own though!

    Still celebrate!  We were together many years before we got married.  I want to celebrate every one of them. 

    No gifts, though.  We don’t do wedding anniversary gifts either — we have more than enough stuff as it is.

    It depends on your relationship…

    We got married on our dating anniversary (yes we planned for this) so that we can actually have 1 date…


    But to each its own…

    We are planning on still celebrating our dating anniversary, at least until it catches up to our years being married. We dated for 8 years so I’d hate to just “lose”, in a sense, those years. We also couldn’t remember when we actually got serious- started as friends with benefits- so we just picked a day around that time of the year & it happens to be MLK Jr day which I get a paid holiday for & it’s the VS annual sale time so I’m keeping it! We don’t do gifts really though, just a nice dinner & event maybe with some lingere surprises!

    If that’s your thing, by all means keep at it. But we’re believers in that the only important date to celebrate is our wedding anniversary now.

    Our dating anniversary is Halloween and our wedding anniversary is one week before, so we tend to kind of celebrate both. We don’t do anything fancy for the dating anniversary, but there’s always something special about halloween and knowing we’ve been together x years.

    We celebrate our dating anniversary and our U.S. wedding anniversary. We also got married in India later for his family but it was a 3 day process so we skip celebrating that one as that would just be too much! 🙂

    Typically we’d just go out to supper, but since we got married, we just kind of akknowledge the date and that’s it lol.

    This year may be different, as it’s our 10th year together. I’m thinking we should celebrate that. lol
