- Wedding: June 2008 - St. Catherine of Genoa, Jin Asian Cuisine Restaurant
I’m squeezing in between roxanns and boavoxy. I’m a 06/07/08! We chose the date because we wanted a late spring/early summer wedding because I will be just finished grad classes for the semester. They we consulted the Lunar calendar to see which Saturdays were "auspicious," or lucky Saturdays (per Chinese tradition, you can consult a match maker or feng shui guy to use your birthdays and find the best day to get married – we didn’t go that far, and just used the general calendar to look up lucky days for marriage). Of the handful of dates, I decided on the early June date. It wasn’t until later when someone mentioned it to me that the date sounded cool. 🙂
(sorry so long guys)

We are getting married on 09/09/09. Our original intent was to go with 08/08/08 – but all the venues were PACKED. We wanted 08/08/08 because #8 signified ‘infinity & good luck’. After speaking w/ one of my coworkers who is chinese, she said 09/09/09 would be a really good date also. #9 means LONGEVITY . . . exactly what I want for my wedding.
09/09/09 works out well for me too because we’re getting married at Disney World – Disney Fairy Tale Weddings!! =)
09/09/09 is a wednesday during low season and the minimum expense is $10,000 lower than high priced seasons. . . = more money to spend on other things!

1)Wanted a holiday weekend (columbus day) as we are getting married on a Sunday for religious reasons
2)Fall-low humidity=good hair!
3) Low precipitation=the best shot at getting married outside under a tree with no rain!
4) After we tenatively picked the date we found it out it was my late grandmother’s birthday….and my FI’s last name a.k.a my new last name is my grandmother’s last name (my mother’s maiden name) if that makes any sense!
It was meant to be!

Our venue was booked for every Saturday in June, July and August (we got married on a college campus and ‘mergers’ [in which both the bride and groom are alumnae] got first dibs…they got to book 13 months in advance and everyone else only got to book 12 mo. It was crazy, though, b/c we had to call at midnight on the first day of July 2006 to reserve it!). So we decided on a Sunday and to make it a three-day affair. We were aiming for August, because of a conflict in DH’s family, so we decided on late July since we didn’t want to wait another month to book!

Fall is by far my favorite season, so I really wanted a fall wedding. So we looked at a couple of dates in October, and decided on the 13th. We’re not superstitious so the number 13 doesn’t bother us (in fact my mother always tells me that’s her lucky number). It’s also one of my uncles’ birthday.
Plus a fun little bonus fact… since my finacee and I are both X-File fans… yeah, I know we’re geeks :), 1013 is the name of the X-Files creator’s production company. 1013…"I made this." 🙂

6/14/08 We picked this date because our first date was on Friday the 13th and we wanted to have our wedding or rehearsal on a Friday the 13th for luck.
Yeah, I’m aware that this date is Flag Day, but like SarahL, I vetoed the red, white and blue theme quickly!
Oh, and I wanted to share that I had the BIGGEST crush on John Cusack as a teenager! Now, I’m almost thirty years old and I still think he’s soooooooooo dreeeeeeeeeeeamy! LOL

The south is too hot during July and August, so we ruled those two months out. My lease ends in July and I have to give at least a one month notice and payment if I break it befeore it ends.
My Fiance wanted September, I wanted May. We finally compromised for June, though he didn’t feel we would have enough planning time (10 months). I wanted 06/07/08, but I have two kids (and wedding party members) in my family graduating the Friday night before, so that ruled that date out.
Thus we settled for the next weekend…June 14th, 2008. We’ll have our rehearsal on Friday the 13th…. should be interesting with our families!

We picked May 31, 2008, which is the anniversary of our meeting! We are also doing the wedding (ceremony and reception) on the beach where we met. It should be very romantic!

08/16/08- Being number people. Both of our ‘lucky numbers’ happens to be 8. So, We thought it was symbolic of the two 8’s represent each of us, and the 16 represents us together.

We originally talked about early may but wanting an outdoor wedding we were both concerned with weather. Later in May is already booked with commitments. Plus MidSummer falls on the 21st (as well as only being 3 days after a full moon). We just decided on a date YESTERDAY!

October 20, 2007! We originally picked October 27th, but the church was booked already! We were lucky enough to get the previous weekend slot…the priest even said we called just in time because he had gotten a bunch of requests in and was sure that slot would be gone if we didn’t book it. Crazy!

I know this is an older post, but I thought I would post anyway 😉
We also chose the date of 6/28/2008 because:
1) Both of our birthday’s and most of our family birthdays are in the fall and we thought it would be nice to have something to celebrate in the early summer.
2) We get to use the 4th of July holiday for our honeymoon and will not have to use an extra vacation day.

October 4, 2008. we were going to have it on our anniversary 9/15, but that would interfere with the racing season, and we both like the fall colors, and would match perfectly with the theme of our wedding:)

We are getting married on 6/7/08. I was looking at dates and noticed the 8/8/08 and thought that would be cute, but my Fiance thought it was too far away, and also August is REALLY hot. And i really would rather get married in the spring anyway. So we were looking at other Saturdays and noticed 6/7/08 was on a Saturday. I thought it would be cute and easy to remember, but leave it to him to still forget already and keep saying, "when is it…6/6/08??" ugh!

Aug 23 2008, we were originally going to go with 9-6-08 but the venues were packed. The date doens’t have a whole lot of significance other then it worked out for us. But reading all your stories kind of make me wish I had one.
August however will allow a lot of family to make it, becasue school will not have started so those with kids will be able to come, which is really important to us.
