How did you come up with your wedding date

Recommended Posts

Our TA picked it for us...she choose the 4 days after we arrived in the DR just in case we were delayed on arrival we wouldn't be rushed getting things together....not romantic at all!

I wanted a date that would be outside of Hurricane season, outside of closing period (April / July / Octo / Jan), inside some school vacations or bank holidays for French/Singapore people, and less than a year after our engagement.

 

That did not leave a lot of days wink.gif

We picked the date Nov 28th its my FI parents wedding anniversary. And both FI parents have passed. We thought that would make it even more special. And I always wanted to get married during Thanksgiving weekend

We were in Jamaica last July and booked our wedding date while we were down there(we weren't even engaged yet) I am a teacher so it had to be in the summer so we could do the wedding and the honeymoon...so we picked the date a year from when we booked it July 11... We got engaged Aug. 24, 2008. FI had wanted to propose when we were in Jamaica but the ring wasn't ready.

We picked our date in an attempt to coincide with the Star Wars Weekends that occur every year at Disneyworld, where we went on our honeymoon. Yes, I am that much of a geek.

 

Unfortunately it didn't work out, as they changed the dates to the four weekends in June as opposed to the last two weekends in May and the first two weekends in June that they did in previous years.

 

But I still had an amazing time! The weather was perfect at that time of year (not too hot, not too cold), and we got to enjoy Disney without any crazy summer heat or crowds.

I randomly picked mine. I knew I liked the month of July. I wanted July 18th but it was booked. So the 20th it is..Its a Monday. At first I thought having a Monday wedding was odd but I guess there really is no sense of time being in Mexico.. So a Monday wedding it is..

I'm a school teacher and school gets out in May, my fiance's mom also works at a school doing clerical work and they work for 2 weeks after school gets out so June was perfect. I looked at the Saturdays and picked the 26th of 2010. I didn't like the 19th, it just didn't roll off my tongue as much as 6/26. We are planning far enough out in advance that so far everything is still available.

Our wedding date is March 30, 2010. We picked this date because we officially started dating on March 30, 2003 (03/30/03). =) I wasn't going to settle for any other date and luckily we were able to book it!!

I initially set a date out in May/June 2010 b/c I figured FH would be very gunshy about getting married since it took him forever to even propose (it happened out of the blue that even he wasn't prepared that he needed a couple of days to even get used to the idea, LOL). But once he got used to the idea, he was all gungho and said why are we even bothering to wait that long? So he wanted to move it up to some time in 2009. I knew it would take at least a year or so to plan the type of wedding we really wanted and to give our family and friends plenty of notice to save for the trip. I was also in another dept that worked on quarterly earnings at the time we got engaged so April, July, October and January were out of the question. So we thought we would chose either Aug/Sept 2009. That way, no matter what location we chose (since we hadn't chosen one), it would be warm but not too hot. We were leaning towards Aug b/c he has nephews that might come and we didn't want to impede on their school schedule. However, his brother (the father of the kids) told him that they probably wouldn't make it so to pick whatever day we wanted. So we picked the 1st week of Sept, just after Labor Day so people could also use the holiday as part of the trip and would use less vacation days. Then it dawned on us that 9/9/09 would fall during our wedding week so we figured it would be easy to remember many years later so we ended up with that date. Sorry I rambled on!

Nothing meaningful or significant here either!

We wanted January or February 2009. We picked January because it was a little bit cheaper than February & we picked the week of Jan 18-25 because it worked with DH's odd schedule. We picked the 22nd because we had to be there 3 days before we could get married. We wanted to leave on a weekend so Mon, Tues, Wed....Thursday, January 22, 2009 it is!! lol

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
