I suggested a wedding date to him last night and he seemed to like it- 12/12/12. We would be doing a destination wedding so everyone flying out that Monday would be perfect and hopefully, because it is during the week, we can save on some of the costs?
Even if we don’t do a Destination Wedding, a wedding right in the middle of the week should help the budget and a lot of people may elect not to come due to work so then we won’t have to feel bad about limiting invites (I want a super small wedding, just the people that matter to us most). Eh, we will see….
Anyone else have a tentative wedding date?

What about actually doing the wedding on the 11th? I know you want the date symmetry, but honestly, it would be easier for your guests if the wedding was at least closer to the weekend so that they didn’t have to take as much time off to travel. They could fly home on Tuesday if they wanted to, which means they’d only need 2 days off of work instead of 3. As someone who has limited vacation time and would have to give up precious family visits to go to a wedding like that, I know i’d appreciate it. Plus, you could still save money with it being during the week.

We HAD one, but it’s been changed. 🙂 Not sure to what date though, we are still looking into it. I only have July since I couldn’t have our original date.lol
I think a middle of the week wedding is good. It does cut down on having people there. I always have been like, I want to invite them, so they don’t feel left out, but I really don’t want them all there.LOL (To others reading this before you go on a binge, No, I don’t want their gifts.)

I am actually counting on the date to keep people away. I want a SUPER small wedding- if it were my choice, I would invite only my immediate family and his immediate family. He however wants to do a Destination Wedding because he already feels bad able choosing who to invite, a lot of his friends got married and all them expect to be at his wedding and etc. and we really just can’t afford it. My main concern is our immediate family members- I don’t even know half these people on the otherside and don’t care for them to be at my wedding.

@MsMamaBear: yeah- exactly how I feel. I don’t care too much for the gifts either so a huge wedding isn’t necessary. I don’t know HALF his friends who expect to be at his wedding and my side of the wedding party is going to be RIDICULOUS small. Maybe 20 people MAX and that is including babies and children. It sucks when most of your friends are online- I would invite you MamaBear in a heart beat.

Sounds good to me! I would love to do 11.11.11, but it’s on a Friday I think, so people would have to take an extra day off work… AND we’re mostly likely doing a Destination Wedding & that date is during a time that hotel prices skyrocket, so I don’t think we’ll be doing that. I did want to do Jan 21, 2012, however… we want to have a reception when we come back & I think it would fall on Superbowl weekend… yeah, not happening. LOL. Right now, I think it may be Feb 11, 2012. Super tenative though!!

That’s so funny ’cause my man and I have thought that too! But just so you know 12/12/12 is on a Thursday! LOL Then we were talking about moving it up earlier to 02/02/12 but that’s on a weird day too. and 02/12/2012 which is on a Sunday.

Weirdly I was looking at the calendar the other day and set my tentative date for Sept. 15, 2012…… I’d like it to be earlier than that, but since I don’t have any idea when he’s going to actually propose, thats the one I came up with 🙂

@armychica06: OMG I think you’re in my head. I totally agree with you all your posts here because that’s exactly what I want. A small, intimate, Destination Wedding. We will have an at home reception. Not looking for too many gifts or an abundance of people to attend the Destination Wedding. I would expect about 20-30. Our initial tenative date June 4, 2011. But since that’s almost exactly 5 months away I don’t think that is going to happen. I don’t think a proposal is coming for at least another 3 months (if I can wait that long). I have no idea of any other dates right now. Due to the “seasons” and our favorite Destination Wedding location we may have to wait until 2012. I REALLY DON’T want to. But Summer (and maybe Spring) is more ideal due to bdays, holidays, etc.
I love the 10-10-10 (too close to our bdays which is the same month and of course this has past haha) 11-11-11 (my son’s bday haha) and 12-12-12 (nice but too far away for me…OMG that’s like two more years…LOL…don’t think I can wait that long).

Congratulations on picking a date. Just a word of advice though. That date is going to be very popular no matter where you get married, so if I were you, I would start booking vendors now. I also think that you are smart for having your wedding on a weekday because it will save you a lot of money. We also chose a Thursday and have saved a lot of money because of it.

I have a tentative date of May 19th, 2012. We’ll see how things shake out with vendors and such. I’d really be ok with any Saturday in May.
