According to the sixth annual survey from David’s Bridal, “What’s on Brides’ Minds,” an estimated 43% of brides have considered planning their wedding on an iconic date such as this one. Earlier this year, on 10/11/12, thousands of couples were married.

The people at David’s Bridal spoke to a lot of amazing brides getting married on 12/12/12 who have great stories. Here are five of the most popular reasons to choose this date:
