I am getting officially married this May, on the 27th. However, that’s not the wedding anniversary we want. We want to have a nice wedding ceremony and reception in the fall but it won’t be for this year and maybe not even next year. I’m not sure what to do because as soon as we make it official at the courthouse, we will be legally married and would have that as our wedding date. I guess what I am asking advice on, should we just celebrate our anniversary on May 27th until we get our ceremony/reception in two years?

Why do you have to get married May 27th? Why do you need a wedding anniversary in the fall?

sgomez12: Well, once you’re married, that date will ALWAYS be your wedding date, believe it or not. If you’re doing a ceremony/wedding two years down the road, you might as well call it a vow renewal.
But if you’re asking if it is ok to call it a “wedding” when it’s two year away? Let’s just say that you might hear other people like your family or relatives calling you “gift grabby” or having a “pretty princess day” and they might feel they are getting duped becuase technically, you are married already.
So my advice is to tread carefully among people you are inviting and possibly call it a vow renewal if you want to avoid backlash or people talking behind your back.

I’m confused. If you’re getting married on May 27th, your wedding anniversary is May 27th.

Is there a rush to get married? Why not wait. Having a second wedding ceremony is generally not accepted. Deciding between which date would be your anniversary is silly, the date would be when you became legally married.
