We picked ours because it is the day he asked me to be his girlfriend 4 years ago! So it is our 5 year dating anniversarry turned into our wedding anniversarry! I love it! Some family members tried to ask me to change it b/c it wasnt convenient for them but I really couldnt do that!

  • Wedding: June 2012

It’s my grandfather’s birthday… he passed away about 6 years ago.  He was one of my favorite people, so I thought how great would that be?!  And, it falls on a Saturday.  Perfect.  🙂

@cameronwedding: We originally wanted to go with June 12th, because it is our “dating anniversary”, and it is also the day we were engaged, exactly one year later. Unfortunate circumstances prevented this, and I’m still a little bummed about it, but no matter what, June 12th will always be special to us.

Our wedding will on our 5th dating anniversary.  It will be on a Friday, which is more unconventional than a Saturday, but the weekend will also fall on a long weekend here in Canada, so it should work out good!!

  • Wedding: April 2012

Initially wanted a September 2011 wedding for reasons of birthdays and other special occasions on all the other months. But my dad was getting married April 2, 2011 and he told me that he couldnt help me financially unless it was moved further away from his wedding date. So we compromised what we initially wanted and decided on April 20, 2012. Hahahahaha…looking back, we are actually happy we moved it back cuz it is giving us more time to plan and get our budget together. So….::Smile::….

I wanted a fall wedding, didn’t want my guests to travel two weekends in a row (Canadian Thanksgiving is the 2nd Monday in October), didn’t want a Hallowe’en wedding, so October 22 it was!

Also, it’s 1 month & 1 day after our dating anniversary. 🙂

We chose our wedding date because it’s closest to the day we got engaged. He proposed in Johshua Tree California so we are getting married there too.

ETA: It is also the best time to be there as it isn’t to hot and I believe it is less expensive. (Destination wedding)

He proposed on 9/22/10…unfortunately 9/22/11 is not a Saturday so we went with 10/22/11! Simple!
