    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?

      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

                    We are using our ceremony date. We plan on doing the legal marraige a week or two before the ceremony at home; and it will just be paperwork.

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