Which Do We Celebrate As Our Anniversary?!

Recommended Posts

We opted out of the civil ceremony in Mexico and are just doing the symbolic one and getting legally married at home.

 

Which date do we celebrate as our anniversary?

It's totally up to you!

 

We are getting legally married back home after our symbolic ceremony in Punta Cana. We will celebrate our destination wedding date as our anniversary because to us that is the date we will be getting married. The legal ceremony back home is just paperwork to us!

I agree with @@kellymiller , ultimately up to you, but since my destination wedding is going to be the day I truly celebrate my marriage with my family and friends, it's the one I want to remember for years to come, even if it's not the "legal" date!

Mexico's date!!! That to us is our wedding and same for our guests. Canada's was just a requirement in the process we say :)

 

Obviously for legal stuff we have to use the Canadian date.

@@breezie - Haha I said that to my husband too :P

 

We're going to celebrate our Mexico wedding date.  We got legally married in Canada the week before but it didn't "feel" like our wedding and it wasn't what we envisioned as our real wedding

As of now my FI and I plan on getting legally married the Friday before we leave (we leave on a Tuesday), but celebrating our anniversary on Nov 20th (symbolic ceremony date).

@breezie- Men usually have trouble remembering one date, so having to remember two would be especially difficult.

 

We will celebrate the destination wedding date.

So my hubby and I have two anniversaries too!

 

We did our civil/legal ceremony in court here in California a week before our destination wedding in Mexico. And yes, we dressed up, but nothing too fancy -- just beautiful white attire and we went to have a delicious lunch afterwards  :D

 

Then we had our official ceremony in Mexico in front of all our family and close friends -- and that's when we wore our full wedding attire complete with bridesmaids and groomsmen. We recognize that day as our official anniversary because it had all the bells and whistles. BUT we also try to acknowledge our legal date with a small and simple dinner each year -- if we remember, hahahaha. :lol:  

 

Two reasons to dress up and celebrate -- always a good idea  :D
