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'll be getting married in the states about a week before going to Mexico, but we'll be using our Mexico ceremony date as our official wedding anniversary.

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

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
