    Our "legal" wedding will be on my parents anniversary (5/26).

    We wanted our Mexico wedding to be close to that date so we picked 6/2, the following Saturday.

      We got engaged on 11/11/05 and married on 11/11/06. None of it was on purpose at all (if you can believe that! the timing just worked out), but I like it anyway. Our five year anniv is 11/11/11 and my friends and family are all talking about having a reunion in Cabo! :)

          No special reason why we chose our date other than it worked with our work schedule. We get a week off every 5 weeks and March 27th falls in the middle of our week off :)

              I originally wanted to do NYE since we met on NYE three years ago (and got engaged then, as well). But since that's high season for Mexico and high season for my work, I knew it would be too expensive for my guests and I wouldn't be able to take two weeks off.
              So then we thought 777 would be cool, and Dreams had it available, so voila.

                We picked June 5th because that's when we started officially dating. Since we decided we wanted a DW we didn't care that the wedding day fell on a Tuesday.

                  we never even tried to find a "meaningful" date - but i kind of wish we would have! the date we have was just available. although it probably is pretty close to us being together for 4 years - we just never had a first date or anything to go by!

                    When I asked my mom why she chose the date she did - well she said it was the only date available during her week off of school... but that's besides the point. She liked the idea of making an insignificant day special. I liked that idea too! Plus, now I get even more special days!!!

                      Our date doesn't have any significant meaning. I wanted 06/07/08, but FH's sister teaches at a Catholic School and its finals week. I didnt want to go later because it would be hotter and I couldn't go earlier because I am graduating from college a week before the date we picked. So here we are at 05/31/08.
