    I’m not big into anniversaries and stuff.. we usually keep it to a minimum. I’m planning on just whole years after we’re married.

    Other… none of the above.  We don’t celebrate anything but our birthdays really.

    We don’t celebrate our dating anniversary anymore, but we verbally recognize it & just say something like “hey its been X years.” I will however be planning a little surprise for our 10 year dating anniversary, which will be next summer. 

    We did celebrate our 6 month marriage annniversary, but that was more on the husband because he surprised me with a picnic. Other then that first year, we only celebrate our acutal wedding anniversary.

    We just will celebrate our wedding anniversary.  I don’t know when we *technically* started dating, as in exclusively.  However, we did meet back up for the first time alone together in 4 years (although not really a date) on Feb. 12, so I do like to just make a mention when it’s that date.

    We are a pretty low key couple and aren’t big on anniversaries. We don’t do a big production for any holiday actually. We’ve acknowledged our annual dating anniversaries and dont something like a picnic or cook dinner together, but won’t once we get married. We will just do annual wedding anniversaries, maybe go out to dinner or something. I’ll probably say “Hey, we’ve been married for 6 months!” when that happens, but I’m sure I won’t even notice when it’s been 3, 6, 10 years and 6 months.

    We want to get married on our dating anniversary to keep the same date. It’s really important to us, and I don’t want to have another date. The date of our relationship was a magical day that changed our lives.

    other–we do married anniversaries on the year, and have decided we’ll do dating anniversaries for the big milestone years, so like in 2016 we’ll celebrate our 10 year dating anniversary. sometimes we still go out to dinner on our dating anniversary, but we like to eat out so it’s not that big of a deal 😉 for our wedding anniversaries so far we’ve gone on vacations (one was big, one was small–a weekend away at a b&b), but we never went that big for dating

    I have no clue when our “dating” anniversary is. He was supposed to be a one night stand, and I didn’t even write about it in my diary. Must have been January though, now that I think about it, because he unexpectedly bought me a Valentine’s day present, but we had not met yet before the previous Christmas.

    Anyway, I think it’s cute to celebrate your first half-year wedding anniversary, I might think it slightly odd after that though. But whatever — if you’re big on celebrating special days, go for it!

    We’re kind of hit and miss.  We happen to be “celebrating our 7 year dating anniversary” this weekend because we just desperately need a date night, and will have a brand new baby on our wedding anniversary, so it’s more about just having a night for the two of us, but I don’t think we’ve done anything for it in a few years.

    We usually acknowledge our wedding anniversary though, although sometimes we consider whatever spring/summer vacation we take to be our anniversary celebration.

    What do you mean by “celebrate?” We “make note of” anniversaries, but I’m sure after we’re married our “engage-aversary” and “Dating-aversary” won’t be big affairs. Maybe we’ll go out to dinner because we never do that.

    I wanted to celebrate our dating anniversary but my husband flat out told me he had no interest. So, we’ll only celebrate our wedding anniversary.

    We only have a dating anniversary to celebrate at this point and we usually go on a little holiday.

    Once we’re married, we’ll ‘celebrate’ our dating anniversary as well as the day he proposed by having a romantic dinner and our wedding anniversary will become the one we travel away for/buy each other gifts for.
