How did you come up with your wedding date

Recommended Posts

We didn't want to go to Mexico during the really hot summer months and wanted to wait until after hurrican season so we decided on November. Then I realized that if we had the wedding on the 14th we would get there the Wednesday before, we could stay with our guests for the first week and then do our honeymoon the second week and still be back for Thanksgiving. Well when we decided to book we thought what the heck we don't really need to be home for Thanksgiving so we're staying 3 extra days and coming home the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We'll still have Sunday to unpack and get ready for work on Monday.

We knew we wanted to get married either March, April, or May as it would give us enough time to save; plus those are the best months to get married in DR. We really wanted March but the resort had those dates booked when I first submitted the request. It was also important for us to have a Friday or Saturday, because of both our jobs, so when the WC told me our date was available, we immediately jumped on it! So, it worked out!

We picked our dates based mainly around the weather, we didn't want to do it during hurricane season or when it was too hot in Jamaica. We also tried to ensure that it was during low season so that the prices were lower for our guests.

Our wedding date will be our 9th anniversary. But guess how we picked our annivesary date? We didnt know when we officially became boyfriend/girlfriend, so its the first day we slept together. LOL

We knew we wanted May since it was in the "low season" - prices were the cheapest (other then hurricane season) which I couldn't risk. We choose the 8th because it we wanted it as early as possible in May and not have our guests pay April rates (way more expensive) which they would have if we did the first weekend in May. We choose a Friday b/c we assumed most ppl will flying home on a Sunday and wanted our guests to relax on the day after the wedding instead of rush back home

My fiance has always wanted a May wedding. He likes the idea of everything turning green and the tulips blooming in spring. I'm not picky. His birthday is May 15th so based on the availability and cost of the beach house we picked Friday, May 8th.

For us, we were engaged on Dec 8 2007 and both knew that we wanted it to be in less than 12 month thing or very close. We orig planned a local wedding on Dec 20th because I wanted to have a fairytale christmas wedding with my flower girl being an angel.. LOL.Silly silly me .. new england and snow at christmas.... Well that all changed by the middle of Jan and immediately we were on the DW route, with that being said .. a big holiday was out as everyone on Jays side is in healthcare or in the FD/PD with unions... no one gets vacas. Then I started to look at dates and under the International calendar our date looks like this 08-Nov-08. That was it ... it was our date ... 11 months after we got engaged.

The date of our legal marriage is the anniversary of the day he proposed and our wedding will be on the anniversary of the day we "officially" became a couple. We didn't purposely do this it just happened that we picked a month to do it and it happened to be the same month as those things so we picked those dates.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
