Hey Future Brides
So I'm looking for a little advice. My mom was just diagnosed with terminal cancer and they have told her that she may only have 6 months left. But that isn't really a guarantee. Since we don't know if she'll make it to the our Wedding in May of this coming year what we've decided to do is have a small legal ceremony at our home and then still get married in May but the ceremony will not be legal and we will have a friend preform the ceremony. What I am now struggling with is that I really loved the day May 23, 2020 and now I feel like I can't celebrate that as our anniversary since we aren't really getting married that day. We will likely get married in January or February and I keep looking at dates thinking well I don't really like that date. I wanted to get married December 21st to honor my mom since that was her wedding anniversary to my dad. But that's only a week away and I feel like a lot of my family won't be able to make it.
So I guess what I am wanting to get your opinions on is if you had to get married early for whatever reason what day would you celebrate as you anniversary? The day you legally got married? Or the day you have your wedding?
Sorry for the long post. Thanks!
