Las Vegas, Nevada, is known for its penchant for employing magical thinking when it comes to numbers, making it the perfect place for the upcoming “1-2-3-1-2-3” New Year’s Eve wedding date. This unique sequence has become a hot ticket for couples, with the town’s wedding industry preparing for a surge in ceremonies. The previous record on 7/7/07 saw 4,492 weddings in a single day, and Las Vegas is aiming to surpass that this year.
Holiday weddings are already popular in Las Vegas, with around 500 ceremonies per New Year’s Eve since 2018, double the average business on a typical night. The combination of New Year’s Eve and a specialty date creates a massive attraction for couples looking to tie the knot on this auspicious occasion.
Several venues will be showcasing the significance of this date, aiming to accommodate over 120 couples, with only five managing to secure a ceremony during the actual midnight countdown. Despite the uniqueness of the “1-2-3-1-2-3” sequence, past dates like 11/11/11 and 10/10/10 have had record-breaking ceremonies, and this year’s New Year’s Eve expects to follow suit.
In preparation for the influx of last-minute decision-makers, Clark County has set up a pop-up marriage license bureau at Las Vegas’ Harry Reid Airport. This convenient service will be available every day until December 31.
As the excitement builds, the upcoming New Year’s Eve wedding date holds the promise of setting new records in the vibrant wedding capital of the world.
