haha...I knew that first one would get me. Our date is September 13th, but we started dating on that day and I don't have any problems with the number 13! I actually know people who that is their lucky/favorite number. Oh well, I guess we aren't very superstitious, just love each other and want to get married :). Plus FI always likes to tell people that this way he only has one day to remember!

I'm surprised Valentine's Day isn't on there. We thought about getting married that day until we realized how much flowers were going to cost us! Madness!

We got married the Sunday before Labor Day, and I thought it was a great choice actually, we even had a Labor Day BBQ the next day since everyone was in town alerady!  Plus since the wedding was a Sunday- we saved money left in right!

We are getting married on January 3rd. Some people won't be able to make it. But it's okay. We figure the most important people will be there. If its  not one thing, it's another. You cannot plan your wedding day around everyone else!

We are planning our wedding for July the 3rd. I know it isn't the 4th but there we are already getting people telling us they can't come. It's fine with me and I understand . But I realized that I wasn't getting married to make everyone else happy and to put on a huge party...I am getting married to be with the man I love. That and that alone is all that matters. :)

We chose a double-whammy...opening weekend of NCAA football and Labor Day weekend.  To compensate we've planned the rehearsal dinner at STATS, a chic sports bar (oxymoron, anyone?) on the rooftop deck and will be getting married on Sunday.  That way our wedding is in the middle of the break and folks can work their way home on Monday.

I'm a 4th of July bride and so far our response has been positive with guests being able to make it, many have mentioned that they thought it was a good idea so that they wouldn't have to really book much time off as most people have to come in from elsewhere.....However, our wedding is taking place in Las Vegas and I think most people are willing to sacrifice one year's 4th of July in their hometown in exchange for one in Vegas so that may be why ;)

We are planing our wedding our wedding on the 23rd of May Memorial Weekend.  All of our family and close friends have all been very supportive.  I dont think it would matter on the day that you chose it depends on whether you have 2 good families and friends that stand behind you to celebrate your big day.

I too am a memorial day weekend bride. May 23rd, but it was the only day my venue of choice was open unless I wanted to chance rainy weather or blistering heat. I actually think that it is going to help many of our out of town guests make it.

My Memorial Day has been booked!  It's actually a pretty good day for most people trying to get work off for travel.

I am a May 22nd bride. It will be great for my family who can find the time to get off work and the kids to get out of school. Also, it was the only day open for the venue I wanted. If you're family can make it . . . it's the way to go!!!

I am getting married on September 11. I figure why leave only bad memories of that day! My father passed away last September and our theme is New Beginnings. So I think it's perfect for us. Plus, my fiance will have no excuse for forgetting our anniversary!

Interestingly enough...I too am a May 22nd bride, however we are Canadian, but we chose this day to make it convienient for our relatives in California.  So I think it's okay whatever day you choose - those who are important will be there rain or shine!

I'm getting married on April 25...it seemed like a completely hassle free time of year for most people, but then my dad (an accountant) complained that it's he last weekend before the income tax deadline! Honestly, I don't think everyone will EVER be happy about the date you choose.

Labor Day weekend seemed perfect for us and our guests as it is a long weekend and our wedding is on a Sunday.  The long weekend affords our mostly out of town guests the opportunity to enjoy the wedding without having to worry about missing another day of work since they will have the Monday off anyways!
