@bridetobe7844:  I knew I wanted a date that fell in the 20s cause I liked the way it looked. *im crazy* I wanted September but my Fiance parents couldnt make it so we ended up with August 26 2012 and I like the way it looked on paper lol

@bridetobe7844:  That’s my mother’s birthday! I am still a waiting bee, but we have discussed dates… and we were hoping it could be on our dating anniversary, but it’s in the middle of the week, so hopefully a weekend on either side of it will end up being “the” date! It’ll be our 7 anniversary (that’s so crazy to type out).

  • Wedding: May 2012

Mine was a bit tough to decide upon. I work a job that has a busy season so I had to work around that time because I would not be able to get the time off otherwise. Also my mother who is doing a lot for the wedding as well who is a professional cake decorator she can not get any time off 2 weeks before a major holiday. That had a lot to do with it, and I had my schooling to think about I couldn’t schedule the wedding during a busy semester of classes, just was not going to work. So we decided on May 19, 2012 and the honeymoon will come in August because summer session for school will be starting right up. I am actually surprised we could even figure out a date. UGH

My Fiance planned it pretty perfectly…he proposed on our 7th anniversary and we will get married on our 8th (date was lucky enough to fall on a Sunday)

  • Wedding: November 2013

Our date is the day of our “first date” (well it really wasn’t a real date but it was our first kiss and the day we consider ourselves becoming a couple). After we got engaged, I knew we would get married in 2013. I checked the calendar and our date fell on a Saturday! I knew then that we had to have that date 🙂 Luckily Fiance was all for it too!

  • Wedding: October 2012

Well I always knew I wanted to marry in Ocotber because FI’s bday (28th), favorite holiday (Halloween), favorite season (Fall) all seem to coincide with October. Not to mention I love the cooler weather. It was either October 6th or the 20th for 2012, as we are having the ceremony on Saturday and the reception on Sunday so that knocked out the 27th as a possibility bc we didn’t want the reception to fall on FI’s bday. I’m not comfortable with the whole Friday the 13th so that knocked that Saturday out. We settled on the 6th bc we knew it would be easier for some of our out of country guests to travel that weekend. Also the 8th is Columbus day so with a two day ceremony/reception, it may make travel easier on our out of town guests if their schools/work observed. Best reason of all, it means I become his wife two weeks earlier. =)

We knew we wanted it in either spring or summer. We mostly based the actual date around when our photographer was available as we really wanted him. We were deciding between May 5th and June 2nd but my mom pointed out that May 5th was close to a popular tourist filled festival in our city that our venue is close to. So we went with June 2nd 🙂

Ours was based on my school schedule and what weeks I could get off from work.

It’s our 9year anniversary. I always joked our anniversary date was too important to overshadow it with a different wedding date, a while ago we discussed it and decided we don’t want a different anniversary, so when he proposed we already had a date.

  • Wedding: May 2013

Ours was a complicated mixture of reasons.  He’s in med school and will be finished with classes around late March 2013, and will be starting residency mid-June 2013.  He’s graduating with an MD in the first week of June; I’m graduating with an M.Ed. in the second week of June.  So then we narrowed it down to April or May 2013.  We wanted a 3 day weekend because I’m a teacher so I can’t miss a lot of school.  We wanted Sunday, May 26, 2013 but that date was taken at our venue of choice.  So we picked Saturday, May 25, 2013!  We just booked our venue last night!

  • Wedding: March 2012

We wanted a spring wedding so figured I’m off work for a week for spring break but the first Saturday was St. Patrick’s Day and I really didn’t want that, so we opted for the end of my break.  Our 10 year dating anniversary falls on a Sunday and I really wanted a Saturday wedding so that was out, but that was the first date I had thought of.
