BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) – Every couple wants their wedding day to be special, but for brides and grooms getting “hitched” on Thursday, it’s all about the number 10-11-12.
Mark Schneider and Kate Segna from Bloomington chose to get married at the Mall of America’s Chapel of Love on Oct. 11, 2012, because they say it’s a date they (or he) wouldn’t forget.
“We got engaged in March and this was the first day that came up,” said Segna. “We didn’t want to wait until November to do an 11-11-12 wedding.”
After looking at places around town they choose the Chapel of Love and thought the church would be booked solid. They were pleasantly surprised to see it was available.
“I was like, ‘Sign us up!’” said Segna. “It was meant to be.”
Unique calendars days like 10-11-12 are coming to end. The most popular wedding days are the triple digit dates such as 12-12-12.
“12-12-12, we’re almost booked solid,” said Felicia Glass-Wilcox, owner of the Chapel of Love. “We’re running out of those days.”
After Dec. 13, 2014, you won’t see unique calendars dates like this until Jan. 1, 2101.
The Love Chapel does have one spot open on 12-12-12 for any lucky couple looking to get hitched.
