LAS VEGAS (AP) – The newlyweds lined up outside the marriage license office in Las Vegas on Friday, ahead of a single date to marry: 3/4/21.
Nearly 700 couples were licensed for Saturday’s date, said Jeff Klein, a spokesman for the Clark County Marriage Office, as the city where Elvis can be part of the wedding party was set to mark another peculiar date for the nuptials. . The clerk’s office marked the occasion with souvenir marriage certificates.
“Special dates like 3/4/21 are always immensely popular,” said County Clerk Lynn Goya, noting that more than 1,800 couples were married on December 13, 2014.
April is usually busy for weddings, and past dates with notable number sequences have totaled more than 1,000 weddings in one day, Goya said.
The office is preparing for the first 10 days of this December, offering what the clerk calls “palindromic days” for numbers that read the same back and forth.
Almost 2,700 couples were married on 10/10/10; more than 1,800 were married on 12/12/12; and 3,125 were married on 11/11/11.
