Brides and Grooms Rush to Wed on 11/12/13
Most brides and grooms favor tying the knot on weekends when it's easy for family and friends to get off work and, if necessary, travel. But find a sequential date on a calendar and it doesn't matter what day of the week the wedding falls on. Couples love the idea of getting married on a month, day and year that follow a sequential pattern. Yesterday was no exception as couples rush to the altar. On 11/12/13 almost eight times as many couples wed as the year before according to David's Bridal. The Knot estimates about 3,000 couples were registered to be wed on 11/12/13, about quadruple any other Tuesday in November. No one seems to care that their wedding happened on a Tuesday. Brides wore anything from informal wedding dresses to elaborate designs with long trains. In Las Vegas, one chapel performed 65 weddings on 11/12/13 compared to last Tuesday when the officiated at only seven ceremonies. In New York City, The Today Show took the number game a step further having a couple get married on national television at 9:10 a.m. EST.
