    Sorry, if this is already a thread. I did a seach and couldn't find anything!

    With that said, so, why did you choose the date you chose for your big day?

      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.

        We picked the month of February for the weather, and the specific date was all that was available.

            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.

              We picked our date because we wanted a short engagement and there wasn't much else available at the resort we wanted. :)

                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!

                  I picked mine for some of the same reasons as yours. Only my date is 8-8-08 (too bad I cant get married at 8pm) lol

                    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.
