In exactly one year from now I am marrying my best friend! I’m soooo excited! Tonight we’re going out for dinner at the restaurant in the hotel where we’re having our wedding reception (seems fitting!) I also popped into Victoria’s Secret (we just got one in my city finally last week!) and picked up some lingerie in FI’s favourite colour.
I’m also starting a journal today. Every day between now and our wedding day I will write down something I love about Fiance, or something I’m grateful for that he did that day or whatever. Then on our wedding day I’m going to give it to him. I got a nice faux leather ‘executive’ journal, also in FI’s fave colour (grey).
Anyone esle doing anything to celebrate (or has anyone else done anything) their -1 year anniversary?

We actually split the difference between our actual anniversary (1 Nov) and our future wedding date (3 Nov) and went out for a celebration dinner on the 2 Nov!

My fiance and I went out to see an old friend of mine compete in a comedy show. I hadn’t seen her in forever, and a bunch of other people I hadn’t seen since high school also showed up. When someone asked me when the wedding would be, I realized it was exactly 1 year away and was like “oh! It’s our pre-anniversary!”
I’m just happy that now when I give the date, I won’t have people thinking I mean it’s in just a few weeks. We got engaged in September, and a couple of the vendors, even though I said 2013, didn’t register that part and were like “wow, that’s soon, you’re really waiting until the last minute” and I’d have to say, “no, next year”.

Since our dating anniversary, like other hive-members here, is also our wedding date-to-be, we did the usual anniversary stuff (dinner and small pressies).
I decided to start a scrapbook (using the Project Life system, to keep it relatively simple) specifically of the year leading up to the wedding just so we can remember the little details. It also reminds me to take pictures of him, me, and us on the regular–something we’ve been kind of lax on in general–so that’s good.

One year away tom! We are going out to a nice dinner at one of our favorite places to celebrate 🙂 I’m glad we aren’t the only ones doing something like this, but we call it our “reverseavvisary”(reverse-anniversary) I can’t believe how quickly these past 5 months have gone by! I actually have to start booking some more vendors!
