I think we’ll just celebrate our marriage anniversary after we’re married. Although we’re different because we don’t really celebrate a dating anniversary now!

I think we’ll just celebrate the wedding anniversary for the most part.  Maybe we’ll make a mental note when it’s 10 years since we’ve “been together” or something like that (we’ll have been together 5.5 years at the wedding).

Our dating anniversary was the day we got engaged (last year), and 2 days before we get married (this fall)! So I think we’ll just celebrate the wedding anniversary and just remember our dating one πŸ™‚

Darling Husband and I disagree on this — I think we should continue to celebrate our dating anniversary, but he thinks its been replaced with our wedding anniversary! I am trying to convince him to do a little getaway for it this year, but we’ll see.

Our dating anniversary falls 1 day before our wedding anniversary, 5 years apart (planned that way, wished we could have gotten married on the actual anniversary but it falls on a Friday and we didn’t want to inconvienence guests.) so we will probably celebrate both together πŸ™‚

My parents celebrate their wedding anniversary only. Their dating anniversary is acknowledged but on their 20th dating annivesary, my father bought my mom a big bouquet of yellow roses because it was the start of their friendship. How cute are they?

I have shared this story with my Fiance a million times – hopefully he gets the hint that I would like to acknowledge it and I wouldn’t be opposed to some small, sweet surprises.

We really only usually celebrate our wedding anniversary now, but we recognize our dating anniversary by doing something on the cheap, like getting take out from our favorite place or making a fancy dessert together. Just something silly and not over-the-top.

we already don’t know what date to consider our “dating anniversary,” so it’s never been celebrated.  problem solved! πŸ™‚

We started dating on Feb. 19th.  Just so happened to get married on June 19th.  We plan on doing something sweet on the 19th of each month.  Our monthly date.  Whether it’s dinner out, or a movie in with wine, or a fire in the firepit & beer.  We want to make sure to celebrate it every month.  So will will then be celebrating on Feb. 19th regardless!

Our dating anniversary is his now deceased grandparents wedding anniversary. Once we get married, I would prefer only to celebrate the wedding on a normal scale… but we’ll probably keep his grandparents tradition of dinner at the Denny’s down the street from their old house alive πŸ™‚ I personally hate Denny’s… but hey, once a year isn’t bad πŸ˜‰

Considering neither of us would be able to give our “dating anniversary” date if held at gunpoint – we’ll just be celebrating our wedding anniversary (it is however 2 years after the day we met).

I think dating anniversarys are nice when you’re just dating (or too young to actually get married) but become a little silly once your married, so I say leave it behind.

we are having a destination wedding and are actually having our legal ceremony at home with a commissioner of oaths on our 4 year dating anniversary. 

in the future, we will only be celebrating our “real” wedding anniversary (which is 2 months and 3 days later), but will probably acknowledge our legal day in some little way.

Well, we got married in June, and my husband has scheduled his fantasy football draft party on our dating anniversary, so I’m thinking we aren’t really celebrating it anymore.

I don’t know our exact anniversary and honestly I don’t think FH does either πŸ™‚ We met/started dating in January so thats how we figure out how long we’ve been together but we usually don’t celebrate anything. This year on our pre-wedding anniversary he got me a card and flowers, so I know we will only be celebrating our wedding anniversary.
