Read about one of our “Real Brides” Who Married on the last iconic date of the century!January 8th, 2013
Good Afternoon! As 12-12-12 was one of the most iconic dates of the century, we had a plethora of brides who decided to marry on this interesting date! Monica, one of our “real brides” from Houston, TX shared her lovely story with us and some pictures of her gorgeous wedding! Read more below about her fairy tale romance!
“My fiancee’ and I met online on October 12, 2009. I added him as a friend, and he messaged me asking if we knew each other. I replied, “Nope. My name is Monica, what’s your name?”. Ever since, we were in constant contact via e-mail, myspace, facebook, text, and phone. A month and a half later, he decided he liked me as more than a friend, so he decided to travel to Houston and have Thanksgiving with me: since he was living in Seguin TX at the time.
Two weeks after we met, he moved to Houston for good, because I refused to be in a long distance relationship. On December 12, 2009 I asked him if he was planning on making it official, and he responded with “Sure, since you beat me to it”. I’m not sure who asked who out, but since that day almost three years have passed and I am happier than I have ever been! December 12th will be our three year anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than with a wedding? Also, 12-12-12- is a once in a lifetime event. It only happens once every hundred years! The next time that dates will have triple digits will be 1-1-2111, and I don’t think we could have waited that long.
When we started planning our wedding, the date was already set, but little did we know how much it would save us. We are having a $25,000 wedding for half the price. Getting married on a Wednesday is not very common, but John (my fiancee’) and I wouldn’t change it for the world! The number twelve was symbolic to us from the beginning of our relationship, and it will continue to be important in our marriage. We have both agreed that every third anniversary we will do something extravagant since on our third anniversary we’re getting married, and every twelfth anniversary we plan to renew our vows.”
