IF YOU ARE one of the many Australians who count their
lucky stars and take dates and numbers seriously, choosing
the date of a wedding is serious business.
Fate, happiness and luck all depend on choosing the right
day for the ceremony! For many 10/10/10 represents luck
and good fortune and Australian marriage celebrants saw a
huge last minute rush of couples registering for this distinctive
"If intending to marry, a couple has to register their
application a month and a day before the intended date,"
said Martin Moroney, spokesperson for Australian Marriage
Celebrants, the largest and most respected association
of marriage celebrants in Australia. "Celebrants within
the association have acknowledged an over whelming
desire for weddings
on 10/10/10 with
some celebrants even
committing to three
weddings on this date
and turning away
others wishing to wed
when the stars align!"
"I was booked for
10.10am on 10th
October 2010 many
months ago," said
Elaine Searle, member of Australian Marriage Celebrants.
"I have booked two more ceremonies during the day and
could have booked probably about six more, but three is
my absolute limit!"
For the Chinese, the bride and groom's birthdates and times
are required for selecting the dates for a wedding to start.
Usually even-number months and dates are preferred and
the date of 10/10/10 is considered to be one of the best
days in the year to be married. According to the Chinese
calendar, 10/10/10 represents an auspicious day for
a wedding with some couples even consulting feng shui
experts on the timing for events such as fetching the bride
and entering the groom's home.
If you had registered for the date 10/10/10, you have
joined the group of auspicious brides and grooms to-be all
over Australia, who scrambled to sign on the dotted line
with a view to sealing their future's happiness!
Already the date of 11/11/11 is beginning to fill up
with requests for wedding ceremonies and the Australian
Marriage Celebrants are encouraging couples to get in
early to avoid disappointment. ■
