Popular wedding dates for 2013
What will be the big days this year? As in years past we have had many novelty dates such as 9/10/11, 10/11/12,12/12/12 and several other such dates particular when the date is a Friday or Saturday such as the 9/10/11 date was.There was 11-11-11 (a Friday), 1-1-11 (a Saturday), 10-10-10 (a Sunday), plus a host of others. Many photographers were inundated with request for these dates. As an Atlanta wedding photographer I remember one of my biggest weddings I had ever photographed was on 7/7/2007. According to a survey by David’s Bridal about 4000 brides were married nationwide on 10/11/12. Well as we look at 2013 we see that there is the possibility of 11/12/13 but since that is a Tuesday it will not be a too heavily booked day. So what will be the most popular date for a wedding?
Well there is the 13 unlucky number superstition. We have heard a couple of brides that have either moved up their date to 2012 or out to 2014 but most people are not bothered by the number 13.
As the phone rings at our studio some of the most popular dates are still turning out to be Saturdays from mid April thru June and again from September thru the first week of Novemeber.
