When Chad and I got engaged, we ended up having a pretty lengthy engagement…2 1/2 years! It wasn’t because we couldn’t get our stuff together, we essentially had our wedding planned within 6 months….it was because I didn’t want to get married in an odd-year. You see, we got engaged towards the end of 2006, and could have gotten married in 2007 if we wanted to, but I have this thing with odd numbers, so we held off til Spring of 2008! Maybe its a silly reason, but hey, we ended up having ALL even numbers for our anniversary date…04/26/08, so I’m pretty happy about that!
That leads me to the premise of a film coming out on April 27 called The 5-Year Engagement starring Emily Blunt and Jason Segel….if you haven’t seen the previews yet, you absolutely must! The characters, Tom & Violet, get engaged a year after meeting, and through a series of crazy events, their wedding gets postponed multiple times over 5 years…its from the producers of Bridesmaids, so its pretty much guaranteed to be hilarious.
A bunch of blogs today are getting in on the fun…each participating blog below is featuring a different save the date that Tom & Violet sent out over their 5 year engagement….simply collect 4 of the dates (seen on the STD card) and enter them at the sweepstakes page for a chance to win $1000 Amazon giftcard!
