What wedding anniversary date are you using??

Recommended Posts

It sounds like a lot of girls (myself included) are getting legally married before they go on their DW - so I ask - what date is your anniversary date?? Your legal date or your wedding ceremony date?

 

I feel like our "legal" marriage and the date on our marriage certificate doesn't feel like my "real" wedding day. It was kinda just a formality. But I don't know, because legally, my wedding date is December 21,2008.

 

What are your opinions on this? What are you going to do? confused.gif

I feel like someone has posted this question before but I can't seem to locate it. I'm going to use my ceremony date as my wedding anniversary. It's really the date that means more to us since we will be surrounded by close friends and family. My FI and I plan on making it legal about 2 weeks before our ceremony date.

 

I think your situation is different though since you are already legally married but won't be having your ceremony until November. Maybe you can celebrate your wedding anniversary on your ceremony date, but also do a tiny celebration on your legal day?

I think it might be a lot to put off your anniversary for a year, but it's up to you. I would just feel a little ripped of 50 years down the road, when instead of a 50th, you were having a 49th! I suppose you could compromise and make your anniversary November 28th 2009. Then you'd be celebrating the more special day, but it would be closer to the right number of years :)

We got legally married on August 8th, 2008. We had decided since were getting legally married before our wedding that we would do it earlier so I could have health insurance since I don't work. We then decided 08/08/08 was fun, and it just so happens that we are getting married (mexico ceremony) August 8th, so really our ceremony will be our one year anniversary! So we don't have to worry about what day

We are also using our ceremony date in Mexico (May cool.gif our legal one is one month before April 8 so that will be easy to remember

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
