    I listed out every saturday in the following two years from when we got engaged. Then we eliminated hunting seasons (because that was my one no no for a date) then I chose three dates that I thought were cute because they were catchy. I reallllyyy wanted a fall wedding, specifically October, but because of how close it was to comming up and how many holidays come after we decided on April 3, 2021. 🖤

    We selected our most favorite time of year. We love fall and winter. We took a vote with our children and winter won.

    We picked a time frame knowing we wanted a fall fall wedding then looked at venues. Once we picked what venue we wanted we looked at available dates and chose from there.

    I had Halloween 2020 picked (before the proposal lol) because we wanted a fall wedding, and its not really even fall until at least October in Texas. I am obsessed with Halloween though!

    We decided together that we wanted a fall wedding and then went by date availability. We knew we wanted it on a Saturday to make it easier for family that worked and needed to travel. Then we narrowed it down by seeing if there were any birthdays or anniversaries that also fell on that day.

    We picked our date 2 years in advance! We looked at the calendar and was just looking at numbers and what number looked good together. We had no set season we wanted to get married in. So, we kept scrolling and found out 2020 was a leap year! With our unique relationship being freshman year sweethearts to literally him helping me pick my dress (he narrowed it down to 2 dresses and I pick my favorite of the 2) it was perfect for our unique relationship! 2.29.2020

    We both wanted a spring/summer wedding and chose a date that worked with our schedules and my children's parenting plan schedule.

    We just picked a random day based on timing of his leave. The military gives us 30 days to move across the country and that time frame was a surefire way to know that he wouldn't be training or deployed haha.

    We picked the month and tried to pick a date but found it was already booked most places. So then we found a venue we loved and picked a date that was available in the month we wanted.

    We wanted a summer wedding since my daughter is off from school but our date of 8 21 21 came from our anniversary of dating 6 21 08 and our daughter was born 1 21 so we thought 21 was destin to be our date..we checked the calendars and found out the summer that year August was on a Saturday. We didn't want a Friday wedding due to people working...

    Originally we planned to go to Vegas in August of 2019 get married and plan a wedding later. Then we decided we wanted our children and family to witness us become one, my FMIL passed away unexpectedly in May of 2019 so all the planning came to a halt. We later decided to get married in March. We didn't want it to be anyone's birth month, son Dec., FH Feb., daughter April, my birthday is in July. I wanted to get married before the anniversary of his parent's passing (both in May, 12 years apart). My FH favorite number is 15 which is how we chose March 15th! Lol sorry for the long story
