We chose March due to my school schedule. It’s the weekend before my spring break starts, so I’ll get a honeymoon week off without missing class. It’s far enough before finals that I won’t have to worry, but far enough after fall finals that I won’t be scrambling with the last minute details during exams.

A spring/summer wedding would be nice as well (considering there’s a very likely chance that I’ll have snow or a blizzard in March), but getting married during/around bar exam has got to be a nightmare. March gives us the best amount of time with the least amount of sacrifice for school, and now we get some sweet ‘offseason’ discounts ๐Ÿ™‚

@CindyRelly: I’m doing the same favors!! How funny! I got the mini pots from Oriental Trading Company and they’re a really good size and price.

And on the ribbon, I’m going to attach a little card that says:

  May you have all the happiness

  And luck that life can hold

  And at the end of all your rainbows

  May you find a pot of gold.

Thanks for celebrating with us! (or something like that)

I always thought I would have an October wedding, because I LOVE the leaves and weather. However, we got engaged in Decemeber 2010 and Oct. 2011 was too close and Oct. 2012 was too far away.

There’s no way we could chance a summer wedding in MO weather- it’s miserably hot and humid, and Fiance has NO tolerance for heat and sweating!

So, March it is. And I couldn’t be happier! Since there’s really nothing to look forward to in the beginning months of the year (no big holidays and such) March is a good way to kick off the Spring/Summer coming around, and give our guests something to look forward to! ๐Ÿ™‚

@McVerde: We’re SO twins! I thought my idea was so one of a kind.. LOL LOL LOL!!!!!!

It sounds like we have the same “vision”… we should keep in touch re: plans and ideas!!!

 

And I LOVE your poem. I’ve been looking for Irish Blessings and sayings but none quite fit.

Mind if I perhaps borrow yours?

@caseylynn19: I agree re: something to look forward to!  I find that time of year very depressing. I HATE winter and once the holidays are over I go into a funk… Not this year!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

We picked March because it’s the month we got engaged (got engaged on the 23rd and will be married a year and a day later!) and we wanted a year-long engagement.  That plus we’ll be married in Denver and we wanted people to be able to still ski, but for it not to be the dead of winter.  I love that it’s the cross-over of winter to spring!

@indibee: We chose the same reason, only our school chose to do spring break a week or two earlier than we’d liked, but oh well ๐Ÿ™‚  We’re having our wedding here and going to the U.S. Virgin Islands for our honeymoon/mock sunset beach wedding..

Our first date was on March 4th. We wanted to keep our dating anniversary and our wedding anniversary around the same time.l

I initially chose March 26 and the ONLY reason was that it was before hockey playoffs started. It’s THAT important! ;-P

We had a March 26th, 2011 wedding for a lot of reasons! It was our anniversay and we wanted to keep the same date since we’d be getting married on our 9 year anniversay! It was also (supposed) to be not too hot and not too cold, fell on most of our friend’s grad school spring breaks and since it wasn’t peak wedding season everything was a little less expensive.

Picking a date was something my FH picked out and planned all by himself.  He told me the night we got engaged (March 26, 2011) that we would be getting married March 24, 2012!!  His grandparents got married March 24 – if they were still here, they would’ve been married 68 years!! My FH was extremely close to his grandparents and since they aren’t able to share our special day with us, we wanted to honor them by using their wedding date!  I love that our wedding date will mean something so special to us.

March was really the only month that didn’t have some kind of meaning stuck to it.  Our birthdays/anniversary/holidays are all at the end of the year.  We live in Louisiana, so we didn’t want to have to worry about hurricane season.  Then Jan and Feb were too close to Christmas/Valentines, so we picked March, and I’m very glad about it because it won’t be hot yet either (hot weather = me = red face = not so cute pictures!!).  Now if I could just not cry during the wedding…

By The Way – I live in southern Indiana, Kentuckiana basically – and was told by a few ppl to do it before The NCAA championship started or else ppl wouldnt come unless I had a tv with play by play and/or games on it….  umm yeah glad spring break was earlier this year – saved me the grief of dealing with that mess!  Basketball is big around here… LOL

@CindyRelly: Yes, we definitely should keep in touch and share ideas.

I found that little poem online and thought it was perfect. Of course you can use it!

Did anyone get a March wedding because you got a discount on stuff??  I was originally planning April but the venue that I loved was pretty pricey.  They said they discount Jan-Mar weddings and Mar 31st is a Saturday (which is the only day I was considering).  Reception won’t end until after midnight so thats close enough to April for me!  So thats how I got my date, LOL
