Brides everywhere ready for 12/12/12 wedding date

PHOENIX -

Wednesdays aren't usually popular days to have a wedding, but this Wednesday is very popular because the date is December 12, 2012 – 12/12/12.

We caught up with one bride, who, like thousands of others around the globe, will be tying the knot in two days.

Deborah Thomas is trying on dresses for her wedding in two days. She wants the dress to be perfect.

"It's a little bit too much bling for what I like. I like something very simple and elegant."

She and her fiancé chose December, specifically the 12th of December for their wedding, because of the numbers 12/12/12.

Deborah and her ex-husband will be re-married on this iconic date -- this time for good.

The two are not alone. 12/12/12 is a very popular date for weddings and the last of this type of repeating numbers for the century.

Beside the interesting numbers, for Deborah and Adam, the date holds extra meaning.

"That was the day we met. We actually met at a Christmas party and... he lost a game of pool so he had to take me to dinner," says Deborah.

Many other couples will be doing the same thing.

"43 percent of brides want to get married on an iconic day such as 12/12/12. it's an important date for fiancés to remember. They like the numbers, they feel it's lucky," says Mandy Sommer, David's Bridal.

And because Deborah believes it's bad luck for the groom to see the bride in her dress before the wedding, Deborah wants Adam, who may be watching, to know this: "The ones we tried on today are not what we picked out… I didn't want him to see me in the actual dress."

Some believe 12/12/12 signifies the universe's entering Age of Aquarius, a time believed to bring harmony, understanding, and peace to earth, all important qualities for a good marriage.
