We plan to just celebrate yearly wedding anniversaries.

We never really did anything for dating anniversaries before marriage so why start now and engage-aversaries really don’t hold any appeal for me either.  I’m sure in a couple of weeks on the 17th we’ll comment that “Yay – we’ve been married for 6 months!” but we won’t do anything special until July.

We will celebrate our wedding anniversary, though we acknowledge other anniversaries — the anniversary of our first date and the anniversary of our engagement.  We don’t make a big fuss about these, but we do acknowledge that it is the anniversary of a special day.

We celebrated the following:

1st month Dating

3rd month dating

6th month dating

1 year dating and every year after that.

Sometimes we celebrate mini anniversary on monthly basis.

I know, I’m an anniversary whore. Smile

@PitBulLover: Yeah – we were the same way.  Just over a 10 month engagement!

We celebrate the day of our first date.   We were boyfriend and girlfriend for 2 years and at the first year we celebrated our 3, 6 and 9 months of dating.   After the first year though, we tapered off and only celebrated the actual date of our first date.   When we get married though, I’m going to make sure we celebrate our wedding anniversary every 6 months.

Our engage-aversary, dating anniversary and wedding anniversary will all fall during the same week.  So I plan on instituting a yearly “anniversary week” that culminates in our wedding anniversary.  Anything to drag it out and celebrate for longer!

We celebrate monthly dating anniversaries with nice dates or much-needed “couple time” on the 24th every month.  We don’t go all out, but its nice to have an excuse to leave work at work and go home to play 🙂

For our 1st year anniversary, we celebrated by taking a month-long trip all over the US, with stops in San Diego, San Francisco, Chicago, New Jersey, and New York.

For our 2nd year anniversary, we recreated our first date, and then toasted our move together to Brooklyn!

For our 3rd year anniversary, we are planning a short trip to Hawaii.  And for our 4th, well, that’s our wedding day 🙂

We’ve been thinking of throwing ourselves an engagement party for our one year “engage-a-versary.”  We’ll see!

His family has seen a lot of divorce and is generally pretty negative about relationships, so we like to make a point of celebrating the fact that we found sanity in each other as often as possible!

This is sad, but–we don’t have an anniversary! We don’t really know how long we’ve been dating. I could give you specific dates–such as we met March 16, 2008. But he didn’t ask me out (nor did we communicate but once) until February the next year. Our first date was February 7th, 2009. But then we only saw each other for a month-ish. Then started up back in September, going on a date here and there, but I don’t remember that date. Then we REALLY started seeing each other in January. So about a year, give or take. But I’m kinda sad to not have anniversary. SO said: “Well, that’s what other anniversaries are for!” Cute. 

 

Well that was a long rant about nothing, haha.

We pretty much just celebrate yearly wedding anniversaries.  I don’t even remember really celebrating yearly dating anniversaries!  We probably went out to eat but they weren’t fancy dinners or anything.

We celebrate wedding anniversaries and usually just go out to dinner for dating anniversaries.  Once we hit a big one, like 10 years, then we’ll probably do something more special for that.

@PitBulLover: Thanks! It was so funny, literally RIGHT AFTER he proposed, a friend who was there asked when the date was.  We both answered, without even looking at each other, “June 24,” because its so special to us.  And, its a Sunday, so we are getting a steal on venue costs!
