Calling all November 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

We picked November because we were limited to November or December because my FI plays soccer and that's pretty much the only 2 months of the year he has off and any of his team mates could make it to the wedding. November worked better than December because we have some friends/family who work retail and would have a hard time getting off during the Holiday shopping season.

We also wanted to be outside and knew November would be a nice time of year in Mexico...

 

And now that November is getting ever so close I feel like there is so much to do! We did finally book our photographer though and flights so there are two BIG things off the list.

Does anyone feel like some stuff is just a waiting game to see how many guests you're going to have? For things like: OOT bags, menu cards, programs, etchuh.gif

we picked november for multiple reasons:

 

1. we wanted to go when its COLD in chicago...since our summers are so short here we wanted to enjoy our summer

2. We needed to do our wedding over a holiday when people have time off work.

3. We met on the 28th of May so 11-28-09 will be exactly 2.5 years since the day we met :)

4. TA told us November was cheaper than December/January and we wanted to get married in 2009 to have a bigger tax return (lol sad but true)

Can I ask you all a question.... Why did you choose to get married in November? That's a question I've been hearing every since I started planning.

 

We chose November the same reason I think someone has already said.. to have our anniversary date during the cold months of the year so we have an excuse to get away for it somewhere hot every year! We didn't want a decemeber wedding, cause travel is always more expensive in Dec, so that too helped in our decision. All we knew was we wanted to go somewhere hot when our weather back home was COLD! Cause we like to enjoy what little summers we get here in Canada as well!!!

I chose November because we got engaged in January and after dating for 9 years, I didn't want to wait another year! I wanted to get married in the same decade I met FI :) October is still in hurricane season and December is too close to the holidays, so November it is!!

Honestly, I chose November because I could take 2 weeks off work and not get bogged down with the catch up when I got home. Also, I chose the 11th because it's Rememberance Day. That way he has no excuse to forget when we got married! It only took him 6 years to remember my birthdaysmile116.gif. Hopefully, since it's a holiday he might have a shot at remembering it! But knowing him, he'll forget.
