(NEW YORK) — Usually Tuesdays aren’t in high in demand when choosing a wedding date.
Except this year, when an estimated 3,000 couples across the nation will make their way down the aisle to say “I Do,” all in order to secure the iconic sequential 11/12/13 date for their nuptials.
“I had over 100 brides that registered for 11/12/13 to do their wedding,” Stacey Rywelski, general manager of David’s Bridal’s Manhattan flagship store, told ABC News. “It’s amazing, considering it’s a middle of the week date. When it’s on a Saturday it’s a given, but the middle of the week blows my mind.”
Despite being a Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013 is one of the most highly anticipated wedding dates of the year, up a whopping 722 percent from the second Tuesday of November in 2012, according to a survey conducted by David’s Bridal.
“I think it’s a couple of reasons,” Rywelski said of the 40 percent of brides who consider planning their wedding on a special date. “Most often the brides say they’re into numbers, or having significant numbers in their life. Also it’s a cool date and they like how it looks on their invitations, or people wanted to have an easy date for the husband to remember the anniversary.”
