Your special date, what was the reasoning behind?? Was it when the venue had availability or was it deliberate and represents something special?
For us, we actually had our wedding on my husbands birthday! I wanted a date in August because we had an outdoor terrace at our venue so weather was important and I did not want in the middle of summer but also I thought why not double the celebration?? Some might think it would then be shared and overshadowed but because my husband is not at all into his birthday, it ended up being pretty subtle but still sweet to recognize it Why not give more reason to party right?? That was my thinking
