A Leap Day wedding!

So, in 2008 I will be getting married on leap day. I'm so excited! any females I tell that to get upset because that means you can only celebrate your anniversary on the actual date every 4 years, while the guys love the idea for the exact same reason. The way I see it, is not as many people will share our anniversary plus, ever 4 years we'll get to plan an extra special way to celebrate :) It'll be fun though because my wedding will be really simple but very sweet. We plan on having a little fun with it too. Like my fiance and I will learn some type of dance, we are leaning towards salsa but we may also choose something really bizzare, and have that be our first dance. You know how all "first dances" tend to be really slow? we want something quick and that will make people laugh :) I can't wait! So what do you guys think about a Leap Day wedding?

I love it. you can also celebrate on the other years as well just do it the day before or after. A friend of mine got married on Leap Day, and not a soul said anything about it. It is your day and you should do whatever your heart desires!=o}

Yeah, I agree. I was teasing my fiance about it too. I told him that it means on any other year we can then choose what day we want to celebrate. If we have stuff going on, on feb 28th, then we can just celebrate it on March 1st...lol, or celebrate it on both! Lol, and of course save our money for our special anniversary every 4 years :)

Congrats for both of you! Yes you should do something bizarre and unique for that day since the date only exists every 4 years. Why not incorporate the number 4 in your celebration? maybe 4 bridesmaids, 40 attendants, 4 different colours as wedding theme etc. Pick humorous and unusual leap wedding invitations or maybe create the template yourself. Good luck!

lol, that's a good idea about the invitations. I'll have to look into that. And now that you mention it, that is rather funny because we will have 4 attendants on both sides! lol. He'll have his 2 brothers and my 2 brothers, and I'll have my best friend, my 2 sisters, and his one sister...hmmm, I'll have to think of more stuff...I wonder if anyones ever written a Leap day or Leap year song!

That's kinda weird because me and my boyfriend were talking about this exact thing the other day, how cool it would be to have our wedding on a leap year. I say it sounds fabulous, and I hope that you have alot of fun when you do it!

I think that's cool. It means like you said that every 4 years you can have an extra extra great anniversary. Plus it's a very unique concept that many people will think is cool when you tell them. It will make for an interesting story for life! I would love to have the courage to make ppl laugh during our dances, but I don't so we will be doing the slow turning in a circle type dance :) Good luck with your wedding!!
