Can you change it at all? Is there a reason you didn’t pick it?

@peachbaby4008:Ours has no special meaning. We wanted fall, we had to work around a few things with the church, and other people’s anniversaries (my brother and SIL’s) and came up with our date.

The only thing even close to significant about it is that it’s 10 days after FI’s birthday.

But it WILL be significant after we get married. :o)

(try to think of it that way…)

Have you already sent STD’s or something? If you want it that badly, then can you change it?

I agree with Misfit if you have no ties to the current date then personally, I would change it to what you want!

We’ve been waiting a year and a half for our big day because when we got engaged in March 2010 I didn’t want to be rushed with only 6 or 7 months to plan.

I think it’s ok to get married on a day that doesn’t already have a special meaning for you. Think of it this way: now you have two dates to celebrate!

I think most people don’t pick significant dates and pick dates because of one or more of the following common reasons: 1.  They like a certain season of the year. 2. That’s when they are able to get their vacations together 3. That’s when the venues they want have available dates. 4. They need to be married by a certain time. 5.  They don’t want to wait too long or don’t want to have to rush.  

We picked our date because the weather is a little nicer and since it’s when I’m on spring break I will have the time off to honeymoon.  At first I wanted Feb. but we decided the rough winters we have here might make travel too difficult for guests.

@peachbaby4008: I have a very similar story.  4/21/12 is our 5 year dating anniversary and that was our first choice.  I would have loved the emotional significance of saying “5 years ago today…”  But our favorite venue was already booked.  I looked for another venue but nothing lived up to it so we chose one week after.  So we’re 4/28/12 too – we’re date twins!

No offense but I don’t see why people make such a big deal out of getting married on a “significant” or “sentimental” date. It is going to be your wedding day, it will be significant and sentimental. You are making a new special date.

@peachbaby4008: I always wanted a fall wedding, and had a tentative date booked for Oct 8, 2011.  Then DH’s parents got involved about how a bunch of out of town relatives were teachers and wouldn’t be able to make it, and essentially guilted us into moving to a summer wedding.  At the end of the day 2/3 RSVP’d no anyway.

But, when the day came around, it was pouring rain, so maybe it was a good choice?

We picked our date for finances/conviences.  We came up with an amount we could save every month and looked at how much we would have saved by Spring 2012 vs Fall 2012.  Once we saw that for the wedding we wanted we would have to wait for Fall, we then looked at specific dates.  We picked Columbus day weekend because we will be having kids at our wedding, so it would be easier for parents to be there, especially my three cousins traveling from california.  We didn’t want to be too close to my friend’s 1st year anniversary in mid-spetember, or to my birthday at the end of October.  We also wanted a sunday wedding because we knew it would be cheaper.

Our date didn’t mean anything either.  We picked it because it was the only day that would work for us, our church, and our reception venue unless we wanted to wait another year.  think about it, those other dayys werent special until something happened, why not make another day special? good luck!
