Does anyone have a wedding date that holds sentimental value to them? Or a special reason why they picked that specific date?

We picked October 10, 2007. Just because, no reason really… haha we wanted to go away for the week of Canadian Thanksgiving that way our family and friends only had to take off 4 days rather than 5. We were trying to be considerate I guess. But I just found out that October 10th is my grandparents wedding anniversary too!!!! At first I was scared they would be mad… but they’ are very honored . Hehehe kinda cute and all the more special to me. Just thought I would share.

    We chose our date in large part because that's when the reception site I wanted was available...if we didn't book it then, we'd have to wait another 4-5 months for it to be available again!

    However, when we were looking at things May 5th (Cinco de Mayo) seemed like a great date to get married. It's a festive Mexican holiday that is celebrated some in Texas and also, we got engaged in San Antonio which has a lot of Mexican influences. So it just seemed fitting.

      No special reason why we chose our date, but we got engaged in October and we needed enough time to give our guests plenty of notice, but didn't want to wait until 2008, October was really the latest we could do it so it didn't get to close to the holidays.

          Hey Melissa, that's my FI's birthday too! The cool thing for that he was born 10/10 and is the 10th grandson on both side of the family. :)

          We havent' settled on a date. We both want sometime in January, but I want a Saturday so our guests can fly in for the weekend without having to take a bunch of time off, so we're willing to adjust the date, depending on which resort we finally choose...

            We picked the week first then the date, 4/22. I have a really bizarre aversion to odd numbers, so this is pretty even! 4/22/08. We then realized it's FH's parents anniversary date too!

              July 19, 2007 is the 4th anniversary of our first date, and supposed to be our wedding day, but it was not going to work that day, so we picked the day after so we will always have to do something extra special for each other because both anniversaries are right next to each other.
              Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

                We picked 12/8 because it worked with the vendors and the location. It just so happens that it is exactly 13 months to the day from when we got engaged. That's the closest to "meaningful" I could come up with.
