So bees, please answer:
1. What month is your birthday?
2. What month is your wedding?
3. Did you purposely make sure they are close together, on the same month, far away from each other OR you simply did not consider your birth month when choosing your wedding month?

My birthday and our wedding anniversary are exactly two weeks apart. I didn’t really consider my birthday when we chose a date. We just really wanted to get married in October.

pussinboots83 : so both are in the month of October?

- Wedding: October 2019 - Chateau Lake Louise
socalgirl1689 : So October is my birthmonth and it’s also the month we’re getting married. It doesn’t have anything to do with my birthday – it’s just a lovely time of year, and the month we went on our first date.
Honestly, I’d prefer they were a little more spread out. We “met” on 9/28 our first “date” was 10/14 my birthday is 10/31 and his is 11/8 That’s a lot of stuff, all worth celebrating, in very short order.
That being said, it’s not enough to convince me to have it any other time of year. 🙂

His b’day is jan
my b’day is july
wedding month is June
i suppose I wouldn’t necessarily make it really close just as it’s fun to spread things out a bit maybe but it didnt have significant impact on the date we picked.
He did propose on my b’day though and that was fun.

My birthday is in July, our wedding was in August. I never thought about my birthday when picking a wedding date.

socalgirl1689 : My birthday is in November, 2 weeks after DH’s. Our wedding was in June. And yes, we did specifically want an anniversary that was far from our birthdays, especially since our birthdays are already in the holiday season. It wasnt the only factor (DH is a teacher so he’s off in the summers, and it made sense to get married at a time when we can travel to celebrate our anniversaries). But yes, it was something we were excited about! Our dating anniversary was also around our birthdays, so it’s fun to have something to celebrate outside of the holiday months!

socalgirl1689 : my birthday is February, our anniversary is two weeks to the day later and two weeks 6 days before my husband’s birthday (3 weeks exactly in a leap year). The main reason we picked February to get married was because it was significantly cheaper in the winter months. For one thing or another the other winter months weren’t suitable for us. So we picked February. We had our first date on the 27th (of a different month) and the 27th of Feb was a Saturday, which was nice but not necessary. When we looked at the date, we liked that it fell between our birthdays because we can go away for an anniversary and birthday trip (although it’s not yet happened).

socalgirl1689 : yes indeed. October happens to be his favorite month as well and the number 8 is our favorite number so that’s how we landed on October 8th 🙂

Birthday May, wedding date July….didn’t even consider when choosing wedding date- the only consideration for our wedding date was timing it when long distance relatives were coming to visit.

I love occasions and reasons to celebrate, and look forward to them. I want my wedding date in March or April because there’s really nothing going on in those months. I feel like after thanksgiving and Christmas and New Years there’s really nothing to look forward to except a boring cold winter since the weather is terrible where I live in the winter. Once May hits the weather is nicer and we look forward to gardening and spring and summer activities. So I guess in a sense I wanted it farther away from my birthday and his birthday since those are already occasions to celebrate and I wanted it to be its own special occasion.

My birthday is in January and FI’s in May, we are getting married in April. Chose our date because it is a public holiday in our country which means that we will always get to spend our anniversary together. Another thing is that our wedding day/the public holiday falls on a Friday next year, the following Tuesday is another public holiday and because I am a teacher, I will also get Monday off, so if I take a week off for honeymoon I am actually only taking off 3 days at the end of the week.
Another factor is that both of our families are church goers, and by having a Friday wedding, everyone is able to relax/recoup on Saturday and able to attend church fresh and revived on Sunday 🙂

My birthday is Feb, his is Nov and we’re getting married in Dec. Birthday months didn’t come into the thought process for picking a date.
