Getting married on your birthday...

Recommended Posts

... that has been our plan thus far... to get married on my birthday. One relation of mine thinks it's an absolutley terrible idea!

 

I've already warned Matt that it won't mean him getting off lightly (in regard to anniversay/birthday gifts) And that he'll have to double up! LOL

 

But now I'm wondering about the date... (hell, along with wondering about everything else!)

 

Thoughts?

I got engaged on my b-day... but I wish it had been some other random day. Don't get me wrong, it was wonderful and special and a night I'll always remember, but I wish it wasn't attached to my b-day. I can't really explain why.

 

I think if you are ok with it, then go for it. But I don't think I'd personally want my anniversary to be the same as my b-day. We tried to plan our date for a time that wouldn't get blended with either of our b-days or major holidays.

i agree - if you're ok w/ it, go ahead! we did the same as jenn. didn't want it to be too close to our bdays which are in nov. i don't even like that my bday is a month away from christmas and hanukkah b/c i don't get presents the rest of the year! (i'm a greedy little beotch)

My FI and I were actually sad that we can't be married on his 30th birthday! (the day before our wedding) - we thought it would be fun. Plus it is the time of year that we always travel south... thought it could make for very memorable birthdays/anniversaries.

 

IMO - It is what you make of it!

I, personally, would not do it.

But that is just me.

In one week, we have FI's bday, my Bday, our anniversary, AND Valentine's day. SO if we added one more thing, my head would explode. LOL.

Just make sure you both agree to it and then ti's all good.

My FIs parents were married on FILs b-day. They love it & FIL always remembers!! When FI suggested that we keep the tradition alive I ki-boshed that idea but it all depends on you. Don't worry about what everyone else thinks. If thats what you want then I say go for it!

We did our religious ceremony in May in Mexico and our civil ceremony back home in June on my hubby's birthday. It is nice for us since we will celebrate May 10 as our anniversary but when we are celebrating DH birthday we will also be celebrating something else. :)

He could seriously care less about the particular date - he's one of those... "it's all about me!" wink.gif

 

His b/day is right around Christmas (which I think, kindof sucks) and so I'm going to really need to rethink the wedding date. Thank God deposits haven't been put down yet. There's one plus in this cloudy mess of late!

Our wedding is 4 days after FI's bday but it is the anniversary of our 1st date. i don't think i would like to share our wedding anniversary with either of our birthdays

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
