Wow... Wedding Dates Poll

So I was looking through and updating the database and noticed 10/10/10 was very popular (as imagined) but also 3/12/11! We have 5 knotties with that same date!

So what I wanna know is....

What's your date and why did u pick it?

    10.9.10

    We wanted to get married in October because we would have both finished school and well because we started dating Oct 18, 2005.

    We couldn't do Oct 18th bc I don't think it fell on a saturday night. Every number with us has revolved around the # 18 which means "life" in Judaism...got engaged on 08.10.07 (8+10 =18), so we went with the 9th since it's half of 18!

    03/12/2011 << I'm one of them!

    This date will actually be our 3 year anniversary :) When he proposed in Dec.2009 He said he wanted at least a year. I decided, why not a year and a few more months so we can get married on a day that means something to us <3


    Know what else I noticed?! Evelyn and Patty are on the same date as me, but their fiance's share the same b-day!

    April 23, 2011. Almost 2 years from when he proposed. Also we are going to Greece for our honeymoon so the weather is better from Mid-April into summer. We didn't want to get married in Miami summer (too hot and hurricanes).

    I'm very much into numbers and how they work together.

    My favorite number is 24. All my life I've liked April for a wedding, so that's 4. My bday is on the 6th, so 2+4=6.  I like the #2 and the only time I've ever entered into a lottery type thing when I was a child, I won with the #2. lol

    I noticed that every time I did something new, first cruise, first kiss, first overseas trip, bought first car, got first job.. etc... was always on the 24th.

    So April 24th was always gonna be my wedding date.

    When I met my FI, whose birthday is on the 24th, I told him about 4-24 being "the" date and he said, fine. Well, 3 years ago we had a commitment ceremony on a beautiful April 24th afternoon, just the two of us. It was very emotional. I walked into the chapel to "Going to Chapel" :-)

    So when we got engaged on Oct. 24th last year, we thought we already have a special memory on 4-24, so what about a year from now, 10-24-10. It happen to be a Sunday so that's our wedding date. Now we will have an anniversary every 6 months!!   See... 2+4=6!!!! LOL

    We decided on 3-17-2012- St Patties Day!   Im Irish and what a great way to celebrate. I also figured everyone will be in a party mood and it falls on a Saturday. We didnt want to get married around the holidays or our birthdays (oct/nov). Kelly

    10-10-10 becuse 10 is my favorite number and the number of my favorite baseball player...We had to have it have it Oct-Jan because of his career and we didnt want to do it so close to the holidays since we have mostly OOT guests.

    Love all the reasons!!!

    Jen... XXX? You dirty little girl!!! That's what it's gonna be rated your wedding night "XXX"!!


    We ORIGINALLY picked 1.23.11 cuz I liked the "123". But when we realized that was a sunday and it would be easier for our OOT guests we changed it to 1.22. I just liked the numbers. Easy to remember and it felt right.

    4.23.11
    We started dating Aug.7 03 and since that has been our anniversary for so long, I wanted it to be our wedding anniversary too. But theres too much rain and chance of hurricanes. So next option was April because I've always wanted an April wedding. But, there is a handful of people that MUST be at my wedding because they are important to me and one of them is my aunt. She lives in germany and owns a restaurant so she can only leave 3 times during the year - august, christmas and easter. So Easter weekend it was! I wasn't crazy about the idea at first but then realized that it might be easier for so many OOTers to take their vacations around Easter. And of course.. because I wanted some kind of significance to the date we picked, I was determined to find a way to include the 8/7/03 numbers in some way. So on 4/23/11 we'll have been dating 7 yrs and 8 months and 2+3+1+1 = 7 and 23-11-4 = 8. So there, I concocted a way to include our anniversary numbers and now I'm happy with the date :)

    We picked 3-26-11

    Really it is because thats the weekend that my work (at a school) goes on spring break. After it was set we found out that it was FI's Grandparents anniversary. We like to think that his grandma is watching over us and helped us pick the date. :)

    10.10.10!!!

    We originally were set to have it 10.23.10...but then my brother's friend announced his wedding 10.22.10 two weeks AFTER we told them our date.

    so...Garrett just throw out 10.10.10..he is a BIG even person, and he said its EASY for him to remember our anniversary.

    I was fine with it...it was a holiday weekend! extra day for OOT guests!

    We originally were going to go with 8-8-10 because our favorite number is 8.  Then we started thinking about how freaking hot it would be in August (OMG, I just realized if we had kept our original date we woul dbe getting married on Sunday)!  So, we realized that we started dating in October and he propsed in October, so why not get married in October?  And 10-10-10 just seemed perfect!

    3/12/11 Yippee!!

    We started thinking about a date and ruled out June, July, August and September because it is just too hot and hurricane season. We ruled out November, December, and January because those are holiday months and we didn't want to think about an anniversary when you are preparing for the holidays. We ruled out October because that is his birthday. We ruled out February because of Valentine's day. April and May the weather could be unpredictable and start getting hot and we wanted an outdoor ceremony. This is paradise after all. That just left March. We looked at the calendar and decided 2011 was good. Then we arbitrarily cut out the first week and the last week just because. That left us with the 12th and the 19th. We picked the 12th. It just seemed right.

    LOVE everyones stories! Mines not as cute as everyones.... but 9.25 is our dating anniversary and I love it because it gives me something happy to look forward to in September. It typically is a very hard month for me, because my mom died early in Sept of 04.

    I met the love of my life in August 05 and we started officially dating in September of 05. We chose 9.25.10 because it will be our 5 year anniversary. Because of him, I can make it out of bed on certain days in September... and I don't hate the month anymore. :) Now I have something to look forward to in September. AND... WIRK always does their summer Country Cruise on that weekend, so for our anniversaries... we can take a rockin cruise! So excited!

    But on to the number sybolism side... My fave number has ALWAYS been 2. And his Bday is... 2.2!!!! :) We were meant to find each other. :)

    3/12/11

    We picked March because it's still cool enough outside.  When we picked our venue we originally wanted 3/5/11, but thats the weekend of the honda classic so there were NO rooms available.  I didn't want to move it up a week bc I didn't want to get married in Feb, so the next week after what we wanted was 3/12/11!
