I always wanted to get married in May.. the place we wanted to go for our honeymoon was available early may.. and i would get my period end of May, so we went with early May... and ironically picked 5/8/2021 we started dating on 8/5/2018 lol
We picked the season we wanted, which was early spring. And from there picked a date that sounded right to us. March 11th just sounded like it was meant to be for us. It’s also the beginning of his spring break from college so that will be helpful for our honeymoon. I can’t imagine another date sounding “right”, ya know?
Our original date was 10/10/2020, which we picked because we wanted mid Sept-mid Oct for weather (outdoors in the South) and it was Columbus Day weekend, a holiday for me and some others. The "cool date" wasn't even a factor!
When we ppd, we picked an April date the venue and our vendors had open. It ended up being 6 months from our original date.
We decided on the day before our anniversary of our first date.
