Wedding Destinations - - HAPPENINGS -

Cou­ples wor­ried about for­get­ting their fu­ture wed­ding an­niver­saries are solv­ing the prob­lem by choos­ing dates that stick in the me­mory.

In 2012 the wed­ding date of 12-12-12 proved to be “the” date to wed across the globe, with Agence France Presse re­port­ing that al­most four times as many cou­ples in Hong Kong were mar­ried on that date, and in Sin­ga­pore eight times as many cou­ples wed on 12-12-12 as in the pre­vi­ous year.

In the United States and Bri­tain 12-12-12 was also pop­u­lar fol­low­ing the trend of choos­ing se­quen­tial num­bers for wed­ding dates, like 11-11-11 or 09-10-11. So what about cou­ples choos­ing their wed­ding dates in the fu­ture? If they plan for 13-13-13 they may find them­selves a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed.
