How did you pick your wedding date?

Is it an anniversary or a particular Friday/Saturday in your favorite season? Or did you go with whatever date the venue of choice had open?

    I always knew I wanted a September or October wedding, so we found a venue that had a options in those months and then just figured out which of the available dates was best for us.

    We had a time frame, and then went with what the venue had.

    In the end, it was 5 days before DH's birthday.

    Our date is a COVID reschedule. I basically sent all of our vendors a list of dates and had them tell me which ones they were NOT available on. July 31 was the only one that they could all make.

    Not a super romantically motivated choice for us! We chose our date based on a combination of personal schedules and dream venue availability.

    I've always wanted an October wedding and the whole point was to try and have fall colors around, so we picked a weekend that we believed would be decent for color in our area.

    FH picked the date October 9. He then called the priest to secure it, and then we met with the restaurant owner who had it available. We were both married previously (we are both widowed). We had married our late spouses in August (oddly 3 days apart). We decided we both wanted a cooler time of year this time.

    We were originally supposed to get married on December 6, 2020. We chose that date because it's our dating anniversary. We ended up having to postpone due to COVID shutting down the city 2 weeks before our date. We didn't anticipate a re-opening until late March through mid-April, so we were closely watching for any updates because they were coming out roughly every 2 weeks. April, May, and June are riddled with birthdays in both of our families, and end of June was the cut off for my family to use their flight vouchers or they would expire. The best day we could maneuver all the birthdays and holidays was June 6, 2021. We thought about postponing to December of 2021 to keep our date, but it would have been a Monday, we were anxious to get it done after 3 years of engagement, and I didn't want my family to have to pay for all new flights in the middle of another holiday season. We still got the 6th of the month, so I can't complain! It was still incredibly special regardless.

    When we originally decided to get engaged in 2018, we decided on our date 10.17. The next year I became pregnant and our son's due date was 10.17. He was three weeks early but when my FH proposed in 2019, we went back to that date. We think its fate.

    I wanted a fall wedding, but my fall months were kind of limited. September is just hell for me, my family has A LOT going on in September, so I knew I wouldn't be choosing then. Everyone gets married in October so I didn't really want to choose October. That left November or early December. I wanted to have something before the holidays, and we decided on a Friday because our guest list was right on the cusp of the required minimums for Saturday, so we chose 11.12.21 because it was a Friday in earlier November.

    We initially were planning for 8/15/21. My FH's lucky number is 815 so we thought that would be fun. Shortly into planning we decided to push back the wedding and went with 12/8/21. Our August date wasn't available at the venues we were looking at and changing the venue location meant chaning the type of wedding we were planning. With that we went with our dating anniversary in December. It actually mafe everything easier and the change was well received by most of our guests.

    Our wedding date was exactly 2 years after our first date. A few months after dating, we knew we wanted marriage and we saw that July 25th was a Saturday in 2020. That was it! We weren't even engaged for another 8 months but we knew the date lol
