    • Wedding: February 2015

    We’re getting married on my birthday next February because we didn’t want to wait until later in the year so seemed like the perfect day.

    @bridetobee16:  My Fiance and I started going out in October 2005–I was 17, and a senior in HS. We’ve talked about marriage before, but I wanted to wait until I finished college and had my career set. Flash forward to October 2013—and the love of my life, proposed. I want time to plan, so when we chose a date, we both said that 10/10/15, would be perfect! It’s the 10th month, of the 10th day of the 10th year of us being a couple. 🙂

    • Wedding: August 2008 - Toronto, ON

    My parents own their own business and would always take the last week of July off and first week in Aug! We decided to get married on Aug 2nd it was a long weekend but we gave everyone invited advanced warning and we had a good turn out and it was a beautiful, warm, sunny day, so our wedding photos looked amazing!

    • Wedding: September 2014

    We chose our date because the original date my fiancé and I was also already booked at our venue.  So we picked the next available Saturday.

    • Wedding: July 2014

    We are getting legally married on June 24, 2014.  It’s a Tuesday.  My fiancé is chinese and it was very important to his parents that we get an auspicious date in the Chinese calendar.  My fiancé and I gave them a date range we wanted to get married and they found us a date.  

    We are having a destination wedding, we will get married in July 9, a Wednesday, because it was available and it worked with our flights. Lol. 

    We haven’t decided which one will be our anniversary date yet. Haha

    To make it even more interesting, we had our Chinese tea ceremony and reception on March 16 so my fiance’s grandparents consider us married already. 🙂

    Gulp. Um. Iconsultedanumerologistandshesaiditwasthebestdayforus. Lol. She said that dates that add up to the number 2 are dates that are auspicious for the two-getherness and coupledom. Soooooo 11 / 11 it was!

    • Wedding: November 2015

    Fiance wanted November so the leaves will be changing/changed by then (we live in Southern California so it doesn’t usually start feeling like Fall until late October or so, sometimes not even then). I said the 7th because that’s two weeks before Thanksgiving so some of our honeymoon will be paid leave for me  We decided on 2015 because we will both have graduated from school by then and it would give us more time to save $$

    • Wedding: August 2014

    Our date is the 30.08.14. We liked the date because it is two days before spring, and at this time of winter the weather is beautiful and slowly warming up. Our dating anniversary was 14.05.11 (14+5+11= 30)! So bizarre. We originally wanted a May wedding but with both of our birthdays and mother’s day in the same month we wanted to space out the celebrations.

    • Wedding: March 2014

    I wanted to get married in march because 4 years ago March 15th Darling Husband said he loved me for the first time. I lucked out and the only date my venue had available was March 15th, I was so happy.

    • Wedding: June 2015

    I voted weather/season…We originally wanted to get married on our 10 year anniversary in April 2015 but we also knew we definitely wanted a Destination Wedding in Northern Italy which gets a lot of rainfall at that time of year so we decided to put it back a few months and chose June 22nd…

    june is our favourite month of the year and 22 is my lucky number (it’s a Monday but as it’s a Destination Wedding it doesn’t make a difference what day if the week we choose)

    • Wedding: April 2015

    We just went with the most convenient date for my fiance to get a month off of work and for his sister to be able to attend and not miss much school. It just ended up being 4/4/15 which in hindsight is kinda cool.

    My fiance and I have a collection of over 250 different Zombie movies. 

    We wanted 2015, and we wanted fall, potentially winter so we could score a pricey venue off-peak. We joked about doing a Halloween wedding, and when I looked it up I noticed it fell on a Saturday. Our venue is chomping at the bit to get us to book for Halloween because 1. no one else will, and 2. she thinks it’ll be fun and unique, so she offered us a better PP price and removed the rental cost and rental minimum to get us to sign. Some things are meant to be.

    I know this is old but I wanted to leave my comment.

    My brother was killed in a car accident in 2000. My hubby and I wanted a way to honor him because we didn’t know if I could have children or not due to a heart defect. His birthday was July 30. The closest Saturday to July 30 was the 27th. So we got married 07/27/2002.

    Our 15 year anniversary will be 07/27/17 and our 25th anniversary will be 07/27/27…looking forward to planning a vow renewal now. 

    Incidently, we ended up having 2 healthy boys. The oldest is named after my brother.
