Couples To Tie The Knot On 11/12/13

After 12/13/14, There Won't Be A Sequential Date For Nearly A Century

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Some couples looking to start their lives together with a little luck are set to tie the knot on Tuesday – 11/12/13.

As CBS 2’s Tamara Leitner reported, rare sequential patterns have become the new hot dates to get married.

Joanna Ortiz’s big day comes on 11/12/13.

“I actually didn’t realize how iconic it was, but I love the number scheme. I just thought it was the cutest thing,” she told Leitner.

Ortiz isn’t alone in setting her wedding date to a calendar anomaly.

“Brides really started to pay attention to dates and numbers and I think they believe it’s a little bit lucky,” Sara Musillo, a manager at David’s Bridal, said.

Whether it’s lucky or just plain fun, 3,000 brides have registered with David’s Bridal to get married on 11/12/13.

“Over the past few years, the idea of sequential numbers have increased. When we had 7/7/07, we saw over 66,000 weddings happening on that day,” Musillo told Leitner.

Two years ago on 11/11/11, 11 couples were married at 11 a.m. in Times Square, Leitner reported.

And on 12/12/12, CBS 2 was there when Linnette Moses tied the knot with 12 bridesmaids and 12 groomsmen.

Ortiz said she hopes for some luck by saying “I do” at the Brooklyn courthouse at 10 a.m., so her numbers would be 10-11/12/13.

“We’re crossing our fingers,” Ortiz told Leitner.

The last consecutive series of the century happens next year on 12/13/14. David’s Bridal has already registered 1,000 brides to get married on that day, which falls on a Saturday.

After 12/13/14, the next sequential date won’t come until Jan. 2, 2103 – 1/2/03.
