HOUSTON—David’s Bridal estimates that more than 2300 American brides will marry on 11/12/13 and there are at least 43 in the Houston area ready to say ‘I do.’

Sarah Graham, a soon-to-be blushing bride, says she can’t wait for their big date.

“It’s a random Tuesday and I said we’d always run off and get married on a random Tuesday,” she said.

The last sequential date of the year, 11/12/13, will see a bunch of brides off to the altar. 

“A lot of brides like the sequential number sequence ever since we had 7/7/07.  We’ve had this great influx of brides at David’s Bridal that we’ve seen considering iconic dates,” said Cassandra Betley.

Part of it could be for the savings.

“Getting married on a weekday is ten times cheaper than getting married on a Saturday,” she said.

Or the date could be for luck. Or, most of all, love.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime date and this is a once-in-a-lifetime event and he stole my heart,” Graham said.

According to the David’s Bridal survey the next big date for brides is 12/13/14.
