    We choose the 17th, cuz every month since we met, Matt has left flowers on the windshield of my car at the train station I park at - one for each month we were together. If it was a weekend, he would sneak in when I was out and leave them in my room. He has been slacking lately, since we moved in together, but I told him to get it together for tomorrow! Hahahaa

        Yeah, he is def the sentimental one. We often joke that I am the boyfriend and he is the girlfriend. But it is awesome. Cuz he thinks of those things, I am learning too, so it is beneficial to all!

          We picked november of next year because we wanted to give our family/friends enough time to save money for the trip. Plus our wedding planner says that Maui in november is just LOVELY and not quite as hot as july which was our first idea..

            We picked April and I can't even tell you why! Seriously--no clue. We just picked a month and went with it. We originally wanted a fall wedding but I wouldn't wait nor try to rush to plan it. Thank baby Jesus for that one.

              I wanted to get married just before the holidays since I just love the month of December with all that joy going around ! !

              Thinking of my FI, we will be getting married on 12-12-07 because the date will be easy to remember (for him!)

                  First I narrowed down the dates based on the weather. Then, we chose a holiday weekend to make it more convenient for our friends and family to attend.

                    Our date has to be either 7,10 or 17. All of our birthdates are one of those numbers. Mine and our yougest daughter's bday is on 10th, Richard,my other half, and our oldest daughter is on 17th and our middle daughter is the 7th.

                    The first house Richard and I lived together in was 71 (change them round and you get 17) , the first house we bought together was no 7, we started seeing each other on 17th. The list is endless. So I really would like to get married on any of those dates.

                    Incidently the latest 'numbers' are flying out to the Dominican Repulic on the
                    7th and getting married on the 10th and if you add those together you get 17 so it should work!!

                    A bit long winded but thats how i have come to my dates. Also we want to get married in July (7th month!!)

                      Funny.. we are constantly asked "why 4th of July"?

                      here was our thought process..

                      we needed to make sure it was summer break (for those with kids and those in college)

                      it needed to be early summer, since its rainy season in Mexico and the later summer you wait the heavier the rain.

                      we wanted a Friday wedding since we assumed most guests would leave on a Sunday and didnt want people rushing the day before they leave.

                      so this left us with either the last friday of June or first friday of July.. which happend to be the 4th of July.

                      We thought it would be fun, gave us an excuse to get fireworks for the wedding and we thought it would be great to always have your anniversary off!
