Just wondering how everyone picked their wedding dates. I haven't been on the board as long as many of you so please forgive me if someone has already posted this.
Our date it 09/19/10. We got engaged in March of 09 and wanted at least an 18 month engagement to be able to save money for the wedding. FI was laid off shortly after he proposed, so our decision to have a long engagement was a good one.
We knew that September was the perfect month for us. I did not want a summer wedding because I hate the heat. So, we had our month, next task to pick a date. My grandparents anniversary is on September 16 and they were going to celebrate the 49th anniversary around the time we were getting married. I thought that getting married around that date would be perfect as a tribute to them. So we picked 9/18/10. Unfortunately that date was booked at the venue so we chose 09/19/10.
