with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
Today is November 11, 2011. It is Veteran’s Day in the U.S. (and Remembrance day in Canada) which is a day where we remember those who fought for our freedom. It is also 11/11/11.
According to Brides magazine, it is the luckiest day to get married.
This Friday (11/11/11) is the perfect day of the year to get married—literally. Some cultures believe that a calendar date when all the numbers read the same may symbolize luck and fortune; other people may just think it’s kinda cool. BRIDES estimates that 31,000 couples tied the knot on Sunday, October 10, last year (10/10/10)—10 times the weddings that usually occur on Sundays. This year’s magic date falls on a Friday, which may mean even more celebrations (we’re estimating it will reach 46,000), since everyone will have Saturday to nurse a hangover.
I can see how having a date like that for your wedding would be cool. My sister was born on 7/7/77 and I’ve always thought she had a pretty great birth date.
When my husband and I chose our wedding date, we decided to get married on the May long weekend, and the Saturday of that weekend was the 20th. 20 is one of my favorite numbers (the other one is 11), my birthday is on the 20th (of January) and the year was 2000. It seemed like a pretty good date to me. (One year later we moved into a house with a street number of 20. Weird. And awesome.)
How did you choose your wedding date?
