- When is your wedding date?
- Why did you choose it?
Hopefully 6/30/18, our 5 year anniversary.
Friday October 13th 🙂
We were looking at getting married in a castle that is supposedly haunted so I thought Friday the 13th would be perfect! We weren’t impressed with the venue and are doing a country club instead. I want people to be subtly reminded that it is Friday the 13th so I might do a few black cat charms in the table centerpieces. I don’t want it as a theme though, just a small subtle reminder 🙂
11/11/17- I wanted December, he wanted October so we compromised on the long weekend in between!
June 10, 2017.
and it worked for our VIPs.
Our date was October 15 2016. We picked it because we wanted an October wedding and as stupid as it sounds I just liked the way October 15th sounded. LOL 🙂
I was married last year and i picked it because I wanted a Saturday in July or august and took one of the options the venue still had open.
9/29/18. The 23rd is ten years to the day that we met, so I was hoping for September 22nd. BUT we fell in love with a venue that was already booked for that date so we just pushed it back a week.
Also, I am hoping to finish up my PhD in June of 2018 and really didn’t want the stress of finalizing wedding details at the same time. It’s nice to have a few months buffer in case things don’t go as planned.
We wanted a Saturday, little to no chance of snow, but still within our venue’s “off season” budget window. So we went with 4.2.16. Also 4 is my favorite number so go figure.. I got all derivatives of 4 in my wedding date 😀
9/17/17. Date has no special significance. We settled more on a month thats milder than August but doesn’t have the random rain worries of October in our area and then picked a Sunday. Originally Fiance wanted to be married on his grandmothers birthday but it falls on a Tuesday so we changed the date awhile ago.
Got engaged in April 2015. Got married April 2016 (first anniversary is Monday!!!).
I really wanted a fall wedding but, at the time, pulling that off in just 6 months seemed too much (in retrospect I could’ve done it). And we definitely didn’t want to wait a year and a half! We also knew we didn’t want it around the holidays. So we decided on spring. Then it was just a matter of what dates the venue had available. There was no special meaning behind the date. Though, as it turns out, all of our special dates have fallen in April (first date, proposal, and wedding).
7/17/2017 – 13 years after our first date…. It’s a Monday and our family and friends were all okay with it 😉
I really wanted a fall wedding, but I’m a teacher and the logistics of that agitated me (beginning of the school year?!). The most logical time is (of course) summer, which worked because a lot of our family and friends are also educators. I would have liked to have it at the start of the summer to enjoy all the time off together being married, but Darling Husband graduated early June with his DPT and had to take his licensing exam mid-July. He knew he had a lot of studying to do during that time, so we opted to get married afterwards, giving him at least a week to get the results. We figured it would be enough time if (by chance) he did not pass and then he wouldn’t be upset, or more likely that it would be a great celebration for him and his friends who did pass (and they all did! yay!).
Our date was July 30, 2016. BEST DAY EVER
August 5 2016
It was an open date our venue site had for both the ceremony and reception site we wanted, it gave us a year to plan, and it worked for all our VIPs.
It turned out to be a little closer to my husband’s PhD start date than we had anticipated so looking back we probably would have picked the May date they had and had a little less time to plan. We had our wedding, one day later left on our honeymoon, one day after getting back from our honeymoon we packed up our entire apartment and moved to a new state. It was a crazy month! But no regrets!
