Just like making a wish while blowing out the candles on your birthday cake, many are firm believers that the time 11:11 also holds similar magic when it comes to luck. So why does the number 11 hold such prestige? The number 11 is believed to symbolize honesty, rebirth, and idealism, especially in terms of love and life. And while 11:11 comes around twice each day, the date 11/11/11 only happens once every hundred years, making it the most sought after day to commemorate important occasions.
David’s Bridal estimates that over 57,000 couples will tie the knot on 11/11/11, celebrating their commitment to one another on a date that embodies the same qualities of honesty, new beginnings, and idealism one honors in their marriage. Couples across the country have been planning their 11/11/11 wedding for over a year, waiting for the perfect date and some, even the perfect time (11:11 am/pm) to walk down the aisle. David’s Bridal is responsible for dressing over 21,000 brides scheduled to be married on 11/11/11, boasting a huge percentage of gowns to be worn that day.
As these anxious brides to be have spent recent months in eager anticipation, many believe it will prove to be well worth the wait once they celebrate their marriage on such a symbolic day. On behalf of the CaterBid team we wish every couple a beautiful, inspired, and eternal love as they celebrate such a special occasion in the days to come.
