A fun wedding date now and an awesome anniversary date for years to come.
A couple recently requested February 29, 2020 for their elopement date. Both Craig and I were like “OMG that’s Leap Year Day. What a great anniversary date!” and then we started thinking about the most awesome dates to elope that are coming up in the next year or so.
Choosing a wedding date can be a bit tricky but eloping can make it so much easier since there are only a few guests (only two guests is all that is required) to coordinate with. Which means that you and your co-eloper can get married on any day of the week. If the special date that you want falls on a Tuesday, then you can have your ceremony on that date with no stress about guests not being able to make that day.
When considering what day you want to get married, I would suggest thinking about how you may want to celebrate this date in the future for your anniversaries. For example, if you and your co-eloper are big travelers, I would suggest avoiding holiday weekends that may be expensive travel times for future anniversary trips such as Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, etc. You may also want to consider a date that is fun and easy to remember like your current dating anniversary date or double numbers where the month and the day are the same number (i.e. 04-04-20)
Whether you get married at our little wedding chapel or somewhere else, here is a list of cool wedding dates to consider. Have fun!
