The Perfect 10/10/10

Since the dawning of the 21st century, triple-number wedding dates have been popular. June 6, 2006 (6-6-06) wasn't fondly embraced, but July 7, 2007 (7-7-07) was extremely popular, followed by August 8, 2008 (8-8-08) which was a big hit because the phrase “I Love You” has exactly 8 letters and the number "8" turned on it's side illustrates the symbol for "infinity." September 9, 2009 (9-9-09) seemed to have a mediocre following, but here we are facing another big date ... 10/10/10!

I must admit 10/10/10 has a great ring to it, but here are a few more "pros" to ponder:

* 10/10/10 falls on a weekend (Sunday).

* As referred to in The Straits Times, "10" marks the end of a single-digit set of numbers and thus a 10/10/10 wedding symbolizes the union of two individuals and the start of living together.

* Ten implies completeness of order, nothing lacking and nothing over. It signifies that the cycle is complete and that everything is in its proper order. Thus ten represents the perfection of divine order.

* 101010 is binary for 42, and according to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy it's "the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything."

* Several wedding planners and hotels (such as Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas) are offering special PERFECT 10 packages if you book 10-10-10.

So if you've decided to get married on October 10, 2010 and haven't booked your venue and vendors yet, you'd better hurry!

I know a few blogger brides who have 10.10.10 dates and I also attended a wedding on 7.7.07. Kind of a fun way to remember your anniversary :)
