Will you be wed on St Valentine’s Day – February 14, 2010?

By Michele the Celebrant 5 January 2010 27

Just a quick post to let you know that if you wish to marry on St Valentine’s Day this year – which happens to be a Sunday – you must lodge your Notice of Intended Marriage with your celebrant by next Wednesday, January 13.

Please note here that the ACT Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages no longer has a celebrant service. You must find a private civil celebrant or a religious celebrant to officiate for you.

My congratulations and best wishes to you both

Sure, getting married on Valentines day sounds like a good idea right, its arguably the most romantic day of the year, and the symbolism will be special right?

WRONG! Think about it a little more, do you really want your wedding anniversary to be on Valentines day every year, for the rest of your married life? Sure it will be romantic for the first 5 to maybe even 10 years of the marriage, but think of the hidden costs and frustrations you are setting yourself up for.

1. The pressure of Valentines day to be ultra-romantic will certainly wear off 20, 30, 40 years plusn into the marriage, are you still going to feel so sweet about it down the track, with the pressure year after year to live up the ultimate romance fairytale every time?

2. Good luck getting a restaurant booking on your anniversary for the rest of your lives unless you always book 6 months plus in advance.

3. Flowers, chocolates, etc.. will always be more expensive to buy if your anniversary is on Valentines day, and these you can’t buy in advance.

4. Thinking of a romantic trip away for your anniversary instead? Expect to pay double to triple prices for those romantic getaway locations during Valentines day every year.

Trying to impress on Valentines day is hard enough as it is, do you really want the added pressure of having your wedding anniversary on the same day every year? Play it smart, and pick a different date. Why compete with all that extra hassle year after year, do the right thing, don’t get married on Valentines Day!

This message brought to you as a Public Service announcement with tongue held firmly in cheek. 😛

Thanks for scaring her off! haha

HAHAHAHAHAH!

At least go out on a date, just so the rest of us can live our misspent youths vicariously through the two of you.

Knowing each other’s real name isn’t a condition of marriage is it?? lol

LOL! I much prefer my online name to my real name. Although if my mother had named me motleychick I’d be slightly worried. Haha.

haha maybe not motleychick.. but I’m sure someone in the world has named their child motley, I’d think it would be a boys name though. Your real name is better 😉

That’s great, Skid, and thanks for the history lesson, but it’s still a crappy hallmark holiday to most people.
