KENTON COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

Some people think 12/12/12 is lucky. Others have it tied with doom. A few were probably just happy to be half-way through the work week.

But for more than 7,000 brides on December 12th, 2012, it was their wedding day.

FOX19 caught up with one couple at the Kenton County Courthouse, who had been waiting a long time to tie the knot on this date.

David's Bridal estimated that 7,500 couples in the U.S. would say 'I do' on Wednesday.

It's a huge increase compared to approximately 480 marriages that happened on December 12th, 2011.

Many other wedding chapels in the Tri-State also reported a high volume of couples wanting to get hitched on 12/12/12.

It won't be possible again for another 100 years.
