I hadn't even looked at the date... and totally didn't realize its significance, til I saw this post from NBC 15's Greg Peterson--
For some couples, the date held special significance. Others didn't even notice the numerical palindrome.
I agree with Greg... having a date you can remember makes it a whole lot easier. My anniversary is on January 5th. It doesn't hold any special signficance, other than it was the first available Saturday after the holidays. (We couldn't get time off in December.)
And someone forgets it, just about every year. Me, Ray, our moms... don't even ask the kids!
But when you can get a date like this one, THAT's a wedding date to remember.

"On the 18th of August in the 18th year of the millennium -8-18-18- an auspicious date for weddings. Easy-to-remember palindrome and the luck of the double 18s, couples across the country are elbowing their way to the altar." A novel reason to marry! https://t.co/73U9DqvWCV— Hasan Z Rahim (@HasanZR) August 16, 2018
I thought about getting married on a date with matching numbers, but I saw too many weddings yesterday- 8.18.18 🙄— Daris (@DarisMykel) August 20, 2018
