This year, there’s one wedding date brides- and grooms-to-be are fighting over — 12/13/14, the last number-sequential date until Jan. 2, 2103. Eighty-nine years is a long time for people to wait, and, according to a David’s Bridal poll, more than 20,000 U.S. couples plan to marry on that date — which happens to also be a Saturday — this year; last year on Dec. 13, only 7,200 couples wed.
