Why did you choose your date?

Recommended Posts

We're getting married on my parents' 31st anniversary and my brother's 2nd anniversary. We wanted to get married in May because that's when everyone could come, so we figured why not make this our little tradition? (Plus my parents were excited for the anniversary trip!)

we chose january 17, 2009 because we wanted to get the hee-haw out of the cold winter weather and have our guest take advantage of a long weekend (its MLK weekend)

For us, it was about people's availability. Our nieces and nephews were out of school, and all the family could make it, so there you go...

Ours was the only date available...which just so happens to be ON Joe's b-day wtf.gif I rrrrreally didn't want that but Joe kept saying to do it it's no big deal, he would love it if it was on that day, blah-z-blah. I kept thinking that I wanted our anniversary to be on it's own day but after thinking it over, it's really no big deal gives.gif See- it was starting to get to be a pain in the a** finding a date b/c the church and hall we wanted kept conflicting :o( Oh well, I hope I don't regret it. I'll have to surprise Joe with a bday cake that day. offtopic.gif

I chose February 14th not because it's Valentine's Day but bc I wanted February and a Saturday. It seemed like the best one bc it's President's Day weekend and my guests could stay a little longer if they wanted to.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
