How did you choose the day you were going to have your wedding on?
I got married in September.
Was this my dream time to marry? No I always envisaged myself being a summer bride.
Although we were very lucky and ended up with the hottest day in September.
We got engaged in the March and knew we wouldn't be waiting too long to set the day.
In fact we ended up setting the day to coincide with ......wait for it........the school holidays!
Yes there I said it, we planned our wedding day around when the school holidays were!
Our oldest son was just turning 5 and had just started school. We were going to Dubai for our honeymoon / family holiday to visit my parents and so we decided to go when we knew it wouldn't effect Ben's first few weeks at school.
I actually chose the date in September...the 20th, which had to be an even number date (don't like odd numbers!), so that took out the week before and the week after. I know September is an odd number month, but sandwiched between number 20 and 2008, then I was happy with it. This sat nicely with the last week of term and flowed nicely into the 2 week school holiday.
Then it just started to transpire that this date was significant throughout Steve's family and suddenly we knew we had chosen the correct date for us and that it was never going to change.
Steve's parents had gotten married on Sept 20, Steve had joined the navy on Sept 20th and there was one other coincidence as well which I can't remember now.
So there you have it, why we chose our wedding day.
