Why did you choose your date?

Recommended Posts

Our choice was based on the fact that we didn't want to wait too long from the time we were engaged. My parents anniversary was about 9 months away and fell on a Saturday so that was supposed to be it - but that day was booked so we took the following Saturday.

I picked the date was easy to remember.... that's part of it; but I LOVE that it's all 4's (call me weird!) 4/4/08 at 4pm! How cool is that?! wink.gif pinkie.gif

We actually did not want October, we wanted November, but we were having a hard time booking for November, so we went with October. We went with the last week that prices were posted for when we were wanting to book. And then, tradition states that Wednesday is the best and luckiest day to get married, so we picked the Wednesday. That is all.

I tried to get 4/13/2008 (our first date was 5/13/2006 --Friday the 13th -- and we got angaged on 6/13/2006) ... but the rates were higher that week, so we decided on the following week (4/19/2008 ). However, even though 4/13/2008 is a Sunday, I found a notary who will meet with us to sign the papers that day, so our 'legal' day will still be the 13th!

We originally chose October 20th, because we tried to get married before our 8 year Anna, then my dad couldn't go anytime in Oct. because of his boss being on vacation. So, I had to move it til November....

Our date is June 21st. It's one year from the day we got engaged. We were engaged on a thursday, but with leap year that date is a saturday in 08 so it just seemed perfect. I wanted a saturday to make it easier for guest to take a long weekend. It's also summer solstice which is nice because I love long sunny days.

 

The other say I went to get my eyebrows waxed. I had to fill out an information sheet & there was a spot for birthday & anniversary. I was excited to write 6/21!!!!! Not technically an anniversary yet, but it will be.

    • 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?
