Which anniversaries do you celebrate?

Lynnie, on 14/September/2018 at 11:50 Posted in WeddingWire

Today is a big day for me and my husband! Smiley heart We've officially been together (dating) for 10 years!!!

Which anniversaries do you and your spouse (or future spouse) celebrate? Just the wedding anniversary, or also your dating anniversary, the anniversary of your engagement, or even the anniversary of the first time you met?

Now that we've hit this big milestone I think I'm ready to let go of the dating anniversary. Smiley shame But it felt crazy to start over with so few years of marriage!

    We currently only celebrate our dating anniversary but will be celebrating our engagement anniversary this year, and of course our wedding anniversary moving forward.

    My FH and I barely celebrate our dating anniversary let alone any other anniversary. We will definitely celebrate our wedding anniversary moving forward

    We currently only celebrate our dating anniversary. My FH proposed on that date, to try and keep it simple haha!

    Once we're married, we'll probably just stick to our wedding anniversary.

    We currently celebrate our dating anniversary and that's it, once we are married we will probably only celebrate the wedding anniversary.

    We met at work so that's not really one we celebrate! We celebrate the day we became official! Which 4 years in was our engagement so I'm sure we will keep that one going (it's also Christmas Eve which makes it more special!) Wedding is May 24 so we will celebrate that date too!

    Husband had said from the beginning he only celebrates year anniversaries ( no 6 months or anything!) and then when we got engaged, he said the only date he needs to remember is our wedding anniversary! I’m good with just celebrating the one. It also makes it easy since we got married 2 days before our dating anniversary!

    We celebrate the day we started dating but once we get married I think we will only do our wedding date which is the same day as fiancé birthday.

    My husband and I used to celebrate our dating anniversary (which is 5 years tomorrow!), but since we got married in March, we decided we'll start using that date and only celebrate our wedding. I want to go out for a date lunch tomorrow though and enjoy the 5-year milestone!

    We don't really "celebrate" too much... maybe making a nicer dinner for our dating anniversary... we haven't hit 1 year yet for engaged, and just after we'll be married anyways...

    Our anniversaries would be:

    Dating - December 1st
    Engaged - December 28th
    Married - January 19th

    I think because we already celebrate our 6 years together this December, I'll probably still "celebrate" our official start... but I don't see us celebrating our engagement anniversary... Wedding anniversary for sure will be the bigger one (part of the reason we picked January wedding was for off-season vacation time!)

    We only celebrate when we started dating (end of October). We will celebrate our wedding anniversary, too.

    All our anniversaries are kinda close (within 2 weeks) and each one is 2 years after the last (I swear we're gonna have kids October __, 2021 or something lol). Up until now, we only had the dating anniversary but I want to celebrate a little for each day (skip the wedding anniversary this year since it hasn't happened yet Smiley tongue )

    Dating - October 13, 2015

    Engaged - October 26, 2017

    Married - October 19, 2019

    My FH's already said that he will only be celebrating our wedding anniversary so I only will have him celebrate our 2 year dating anniversary next year. For me though... I'm going to celebrate all the days!!! Even if it's just by doing something nice for him Smiley smile

    December 30th - Engagement
