I think we'd celebrate both dates! We'll be together almost 8 years before we get married, and I would hate to just throw that date aside just because we're married! The dating anniversary will just be a smaller celebration like a cheat meal in. Pizza and ice cream in our jammies watching a movie, while our wedding anniversary will more than likely be bigger like a weekend getaway or a fine dining dinner in the city!
We have a funny situation. Our wedding date is set for his SIL's birthday. So while we will absolutely celebrate both, I have a feeling that some years we won't be able to do anything big for our wedding anniversary because of doing birthday stuff
We’ll probably acknowledge both, but that’s mainly because ours will be 2 days apart. I always wanted to get married on the dating anniversary but our venue wasn’t available and we chose to give up the date for the perfect venue.
We met on 5/26 Getting married 4/23/2022 We will celebrate both
We celebrate our wedding anniversary. We purposely choose not to get married on our dating anniversary because it was too close to other holidays/events. Our dating anniversary was January 12th aka my brother-in-law's birthday. Both of our birthdays are at the beginning of December, plus Christmas and then Valentine's Day in February so it was a lot all within three months so it made sense for us to get married at a different time of year so we weren't doing gifts back to back to back.
We usually celebrate the day we met cuz itʻs such a funny story but weʻre lazy and usually forget until our "made it official" dating anniversary 2 months later. Now Iʻm stuck on a wedding date cuz I donʻt want to add yet another date to the mess haha
We acknowledge our dating anniversary, but we don't celebrate it.
We make a big deal our of our wedding anniversary. I always go a little above because it's also his birthday, and I secretly promised myself that I would never let the two meld into a single thing ("here's your birthday/anniversary gift") even though he doesn't care if it does.
We'll probably just celebrate our wedding anniversary - we never had an exact "define the relationship" moment so we've been celebrating our first date-iversary for now. Maybe we'll do something bigger for wedding (like a trip, fancy dinner, etc) and smaller for dating (takeout, get ice cream, etc).
We we got engaged 10 months after we wet, which we celebrate every time it comes around, separately and in addition to our wedding anniversary. The engagement one is just us, no one else. ok to get cards and such on the wedding one but we go out just us.
I can't say for sure, but I feel like we'll just celebrate the wedding anniversary going forward. We only celebrated one dating anniversary before both the proposal and when we're getting married, so it's not a particularly meaningful date to us. Aside from being when we officially began a relationship, of course! Our dating anniversary (July 6th) and engagement date (October 30th) are right around holidays and my birthday (November 4th), so celebrating either of those would just feel "cluttered" to me. We specifically chose April partially because nobody in either of our families has a birthday or anniversary in that month. It just kind of feels more special to us that way.
We celebrate our wedding anniversary. i feel also like it's ok to just do one because our relationships anniversary where things were "official" bf/gf wasn't that far off from when the wedding was anyway.
