9-9-09 ... Good or Bad Idea?

Triple-number wedding dates have been an interesting trend for the last 6 years or so. July 7, 2007 (7-7-07) was probably the most popular, and then of course August 8, 2008 (8-8-08) was not only the day the Chinese launched the Olympic games but the day chosen by thousands of engaged couples because the phrase “I Love You” has exactly 8 letters and the number "8" turned on it's side illustrates the symbol for "infinity." So what about September 9, 2009? Let's explore the pros and cons of 9-9-09:

PROS
  • Wikipedia says: "The number 9, being the greatest of single-digit numbers, was historically associated with the Emperor of China; the Emperor's robes often had nine dragons, and Chinese mythology held that the dragon has nine children. Moreover, the number 9 (jiu) sounds like the word for "longlasting", and as such is often used in weddings.

  • Several wedding planners and hotels (such as Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas) are offering their full-service packages at $999 if you book 9-9-09.

  • When examining the spiritual meaning of the number "9," it is said to represent attainment, satisfaction, accomplishment and success to achieve an influence in our circumstances.

CONS
  • 9-9-09 falls on a Wednesday.

  • Some view 9-9-09 as a scary date, being that it's 666 upside down.

  • See "first CONS bullet."

The the end of the day, it's all up to the couple which date is perfect for them. As long as your chosen day carries an extra special meaning for you both, you're starting off on the right foot.
