Hi there everybody! I am a new bee, so I hope I am doing this correctly.
We have been talking about marriage for a little while now (we have been together for 3 years) and we are considering a few dates for our wedding.
My birthday is on May 15 and my boyfriend’s birthday is May 29. We both love the month of May but it is a very busy month (with our birthdays and Mother’s Day). I asked my partner when he would like to get married, and he likes the idea of getting married either in the week between our birthdays (on May 23) or two weeks before mine or two weeks after his to space the dates out a little. Our dating anniversary is May 14 so I think my boyfriend also wants to marry in May because it would be easier for him to remember lol!
What do you think about this situation? Would it be fun and memorable to have our wedding in May, or should we choose a completely different month all together?

@sunshinewish15: Personally I would go for a different month altogether. I get 3 special “me” days a year: birthday, anniversary and Mothers’ day. I don’t know if I’d like all 3 in the same month. Also, May tends to be cold and wet here in Australia.

I don’t put much stock into adult birthdays, so I wouldn’t worry about this issue.

We share so many dates! My birthday is May 29, my fiance’s is May 20, and our dating anniversary was May 14.
We went for June so we could spread out the important dates a bit. And his brother is getting married in May of this year, and one of our friends had already picked Memorial Day next year so we didn’t want a date too close to theirs.

We chose May 17 2014 because we wanted to avoid mother’s day weekend, and the last weekend of May is Memorial Day Weekend and lots of people have their own plans then.

@paula1248: That is very true, I suppose because I’m not a mother yet 3 special dates in one month didn’t seem so bad… but in fact it could be a bit overwhelming

@karebear3: Aw nice you have the same dating anniversary as us! That is a good idea slightly moving the date so it’s in a different month. We are having a hard time deciding which month we should move it to, since June is winter in Australia and a little colder than we hoped for. Maybe April or even September would be good for us!

Ditto JW1724. We chose the week in between mothers day and memorial day weekend so we weren’t running into holidays where people may not be able to make it. I guess in Australia you wouldn’t really have the problem of Memorial Day though LOL. Our anniversary is May 5th 🙂
