12/12/12 may not mean much to you, but that’s not the case for many superstitious brides. According to a new survey by Wakefield Research and David’s Bridal, 2 in 5 (40 percent) brides considered a special wedding date, like 12/12/12, when planning their big day this year.

This isn’t the first time the numbers have aligned for weddings – other popular days for nuptials have included 7/7/07 and 11/11/11. The annual “What’s On Brides’ Minds” survey has been featured by the media today, including the Huffington Post, Chicago Sun-Times, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Washington Examiner.

Mark your calendar for January 1, 3001 (when three numbers align again – 1/1/1)…we might see an uptick in weddings on that day too!
