Las Vegas ministers and wedding chapels were on full tilt Wednesday, December 12, 2012 (12/12/12), as the last auspicious triple digit day won’t happen again for almost another 90 years.
On any regular day in the gambling capital of America, there may be as many as 150 weddings performed, but thousands of people were descending on Las Vegas to make it official on 12/12/12, including international visitors as well as American citizens.
According to CNN, couples have 40 different 12/12/12 wedding packages to choose from. Six of those options include an Elvis impersonator. Others include pirate, gangster and gothic themes.
According to numerology experts, the number 12 is very lucky because it is a very balanced number containing a vibrant, aggressive number one with the sensitive well-balanced number 2. The number one also emits the vibration of fresh new beginnings which is an auspicious way to start a new life as husband and wife. Some people speculated that in addition to its being a lucky day to wed, many people wanted a wedding date that would be easy for them to remember.
To celebrate 12/12/12, couples traveled from all over the world including: England, Brazil, Canada and Luxembourg, paying special prices ranging from $812 to $2,412 just for the ceremony. That is not counting reception, photos and any other extras.
Las Vegas wedding chapels are now getting ready for the next big event, the world wide apocalypse based on the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21.
