We actually had our Vanuatu holiday dates picked in Dec 08 before he proposed in Jan 09. Then we decided lets do it while we are there. But changed our minds to VIC for his family but it started turning into everyone else's wedding and bigger the Ben Hur so we just thought bugger it, it's supposed to be what WE want and Vanuatu Beach is what WE wanted so we picked 05/08/09 as 5 is his favourite number and 8 is mine. It worked out well and he 'should' remember the date LOL

We are getting married on the same date we got engaged on. We were lucky it just worked out that way. It's two years between Engagement and wedding so enough time to plan and save the money for it.

Well I finish uni this year and start working next year so we wanted to wait till 2011 so we could comfortably pay for the wedding ourselves. We wanted to do it asap. Jan was out because thats when I got married first time round, Feb was out cos we had a couple of birthdays, March was out cos we have HEAPS of birthdays, April has nothing special for us (besides Easter but we looked and it falls around the 22nd I think in 2011). We got engaged on 9th May so we decided to go with the 9th which falls on a Saturday :D

We we wanted an April wedding and as a teacher it had to fall in school holidays. Originally wanted first weekend of hols (3rd April, 2010) but couldn't as it is Easter Saturday and we are having it in the Catholic Church (which don't allow Easter weddings). So it is now the middle week in the hols (10th April). Shorter time for honeymoon now, but 10/4/10 is a cool date and FH has no excuse to forget future anniversaries!

We wanted to get married on the same date we met (4th nov) but that didnt fall on a sat last yr (which was the yr we wanted to get married, after being engaged fr 3 yrs it was about time haha) So we decided on the 1st nov, booked a venue, then changed our minds. The place we chose, only had the 29th nov available, so we settled for that. It wasnt important by the end of it! And it was still nov (just!!)

In hindsight though probably wouldnt have chosen that date, being 2 days b4 hubbys birthday! (and our son, xmas, nye and my birthday all in the space of 2months! Doh!)

I chose our date because my FH has 3 kids that live interstate and we wanted them to be part of the wedding...they have a month of school holidays...so I just picked the 3rd week of July...gave me enough time to organise their outfits and also gave them time to spend with us plus they get a week before they head back to their mum...And because we live in Mackay, July is a nice time of the year, if I had gone with December/January it would have been to humid for family and friends that are from down south. July 24th is the Day my FH actually proposed...so at least we are still getting married in the same month...can't have everything I suppose...

Well we got engaged in april this year and i wanted to get married sometime in the 12mths. our anniversary is the 17th April so we started looking at venues around that date, it just so happened to work out that the venue we loved had the 17th April 2010 so we will be getting married on our 5th anniversary. It then goes with the plan to start a family soon after the wedding, as all his family has birthdays later in the yr it then starts birthdays earlier in the yr :D
