Too many special days, which one should we celebrate each year?

The day I said yes, is the first romantic date we celebrate for anniversaries. Then, when we got married thru civil wedding, we celebrate wedding anniversaries. 2 years after, we got married in the church, which happens to be a different date from the civil wedding. 3 dates to remember and celebrate, and if we could, we'll celebrate 3 times in a year. But, the most special day which we consider THE anniversary is that day when we became a couple.

that's funny! getting confused on which day to celebrate... but it's true, it's really confusing. I have an officemate here who also had a civil wedding first, and they decided to have a church wedding 2 years after. But they set it on the same date so it was not an issue to them. we celebrate our "monthsary" on every 27th... we have been bf/gf for 7 years before we got married with my husband. But I do not want to get married in December. So we chose June 27 instead. just the same day. we do not celebrate the dec.27 anymore but we still greet each other on that date. because we are still thankful for that was the beginning of our story together.

That's a wise choice. We also wanted to have our church wedding on the same day, but April 6th wasn't a saturday on the year of 2010, so we just had it on the closest day which was the 10th. So, we still get to celebrate a joint anniversary of our first date and church wedding.

I know you won't like the date I celebrate. It is not the anniversary of our first date; it's not the anniversary of our wedding; nor is it the anniversary of the day I said 'yes'. The date I celebrate is the one that commemorates the anniversary of our divorce. I have been happily divorced for sixteen years, three months, and four days!

Oh that's a little odd, but if that was the best thing you've done in your life, then it really is worth celebrating. I do hope that time won't come to me. I love my husband so much and hope to spend my lifetime with him.

If you consider the day you first became a couple as the most special one, celebrate that! Of course I would celebrate all three, or at least acknowledge them every year. But have a real celebration for the most special one. :)

I think I will also be confused if I have all those dates to celebrate. Good thing we only have our wedding anniversary to remember and celebrate now. But before we also celebrate the day we became a couple but we ditched that when we got married. It depends on how you value the day you are remembering, if you think the day you became a couple is important for both of you then you can celebrate it, but I guess the day of your marriage is important too. :) Why not celebrate the three?? If I have the means I will do it!!

Right, if we have the budget, we would celebrate on all 3 dates. But, the most special would be the day to remember when we became a couple and that's in April. Our church wedding is closest to that date, so we get to share the celebration for both days.

My husband remembers all the important dates in our lives. He even recalls the date when we first met. Like you, we also have civil and church wedding,which we both celebrate every year.My husband and I had our church wedding two weeks after our civil wedding.For me,our church wedding is the most special.

I guess you're right. Church weddings are the ones with the most preparations and the couples always give their best for it. So, it must be a very special date to remember.

I would choose the wedding day - that wedding day that mean the most for you. But I think I would celebrate all 3, but 2 in a smaller way (like getting the other a bar of chocolate or a flower), and the third one in a bigger way.

We cherish our church wedding day more than the civil wedding, and good thing its on the same month as our first date.

We just celebrate the official day of when we got married which is in March. We dont celebrate the date in which we started dating and we don't celebrate the day in which we got engaged just the day when we got married by the justice of the peace. Which is the same as a civil wedding.
