Couples head down the aisle for 11-12-13

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A Tuesday in November is not normally a popular day for a wedding, but when it falls on 11-12-13, happy couples are eager to walk down the aisle.

An estimated 2,300 couples were expected to get married across the country Tuesday, about 2,000 more than got married on 11-12-12.

Locally, the county clerk's offices issued 174 marriage certificates Tuesday and hosted over 80 percent of those weddings.

So why is 11-12-13 such a popular wedding date?

"A lot of people think it's significant because the numbers are lucky, having the consecutive numbers in the date. As well as it's an easy number to remember. So anniversaries aren't missed," Jennifer Penchan of the County Clerk's Office said.

Some military couples say Tuesday is the perfect trilogy, with the Marine Corps birthday on Sunday, then Veterans Day, and Tuesday as their wedding day.
