    Because our anniversary is in October, he wanted a Sunday, and I wanted something as close to Ocober 7th as possible. So 10.10.10 was born.

    May 15 is after tax season, not too hot yet. No hurricanes. And... the hotel has slowed down some. Whew. Lots of requirements.

    Ours is July 31st, FI actually picked the date. When we leave the island he is going to be studying his butt of for a huge test called USMLE Step 1, anyways so I asked him before or after he takes the step and he said afterwards and then picked the last weekend in July so he had time to study, take the test and then he can relax before we move for clinicals.

    We originally chose 02/14/2011 b/c of our 2 year engagement anniversary but our families were huffing and puffing b/c it was too long.

    Our second choice was 02/24/10 but our venue was booked so they gave us 04/10/10 and I LOVE it : )

    June 26, I wish mine had a really good reason but basically since I'm in an accelerated MBA program, I don't really have the long breaks you normally would get between classes (ours are only a week excpet for Christmas/New Years).  and we didn't want to have a really long engagement so we picked the 5th break (the one in the middle) and now we're getting married in June.

    Wow you guys all have good reasons - my date was basically chosen for me because it was coming up and the venue gave me a deal on a day they had no one else interested in.  ha

    I wanted March, just seemed like good weather and enough time to plan (got engaged in May) but then the venue was booked and didn't want to do Easter weekend, or conflict with some other family anniversaries/bdays, so just moved to the first date in April that was available at the venue.

    Despite being one of the most popular dates for this year, it really all happened by chance.

    1. Picked non-peak season to negotiate best deal... narrowed down to June - October
    2. FI wanted to get married outside, so we tried to pick the coolest month of non-peak season...October it is
    3. Next, wanted a Sunday to get a better rate and this happened to be Columbus Day Weekend and about 75% of our friends have the next day off....and October 10, 2010 became our wedding date.

    No reason at all lol all the dates that mean something to us are in the middle of the week. Our venue had that date open so we went ahead and booked it. NOW we have something to celebrate on that date after we get married =)

    I did some googling and saw that feb was the month with least rain and since I was hell bent on an outdoor wedding, I picked feb.

    feb 6th was superbowl weekend in miami so that was out

    feb 13th was the next sat and I am weird about the number 13

    soooo feb 20 was the next saturday :)

    I have always wanted a September wedding, and FI works at a school so labor day weekend seemed perfect. He would only be gone for 4 days vs. 5 from the school week for the HM, and this way we always have an excuse to travle on our anniversary :)

    March 12, 2011 because our 4 year anniversary is March 11th, but it falls on a Friday, so we went with the next day. =)

    It was the only weekend in May that we did not have something going on already and we wanted to get married after I graduate law school (May 15th), but before I start Bar prep (June 1) and still be able to take a honeymoon.  

    So now we have may 22nd!

    My FI picked our date, because he thought it was cool.  I liked the idea of having it over a 3-day holiday weekend, so 10/10/10 it was!

    He also can just put up 10 fingers when I quiz him about our anniversary and he will be right every time.

    love this poll and all your reasons

    so here is mine October 9, 2010 and here are the reasons:

    1. We started dating on October 18 and wanted an October wedding. It's my favorite month.
    2. Wewanted a saturday wedding because we have alot of out of town guests.
    3. All our significant dates seem to have to do with the number 18, which in Judaism stands for "chai" which means life. It's crazy but we started datinf October 18th, and we got engaged August 10th (so 8/10...add them that's 18). We figured we'd keep the trend and get married on the 9th (half of 18) lol
    4. love the sound of 10.9.10

    :)

    I wanted to be done with my MBA, that will be this April, but we also didnt want to get married in the sweltering summer so we decided on May.  We fell in love with Coral Gables Congregational Church and thats the only saturday in May they had available.  So May 22, 2010 it is!
