The Shockingly Popular Day to Get Married

If you grumble when you get invitations to Friday weddings (so inconvenient for guests!), prepare to roll your eyes: More than 3,000 couples will tie the knot on Tuesday, Nov. 12, according to estimates based off of David's Bridal's annual "What's on Brides' Minds" survey.

Why are so many couples clamoring to get married on Tuesday? It's 11/12/13—the only sequential date of the year. To put that in context, that represents a 722 percent increase from the number of weddings held on Nov. 12 last year.

Experts expect a similar uptick in weddings on Dec. 13, 2014 (aka 12/13/14), which will be the last sequential date of the century. According to the David's Bridal survey, a full 40 percent of brides would consider planning their wedding on a numerically significant date (interestingly, the most popular such date was 07/07/07, when more than 65,000 couples said "I do").
