For us, picking 7/7/07 was just by chance. With both of us having birthdays close to Christmas, then Valentine's Day coming shortly after, we knew we wanted to steer clear of a winter wedding. Our day had to be separate from every other holiday. This meant SUMMER! July 7, just happened to be a really neat date for this summer. It sure doesn't hurt to have a date that he can't forget! We will have 6 attendants on each side with each of us making the 7th person for each side. This is going to be a very lucky day for both of us!

I am a 7-7-07 bride. We picked the date because a family priest is marrying us and he had no other opening's but that date. My cousin is also going to be married on that date, but it was the only date that was open this summer. We will be havng a large display of fireworks at sunset (just like at Disney World) since it is close to the 4th of July. It is really a coincident becuase my fiance and I have dated for 7 years. After we sat our date on 7-7-07 we figured out the coincidence.

I am a 7/7/7 bride as well. I am having a double wedding with my fiance's sister so that is why we have this date. We aren't really superstitious. We don't have a theme and it won't hightlight the number 7 either. It was the first Sat. in July and during their family reunion so that is how the date came about. Good luck to all the Lucky 7 brides and grooms. Well congrats to all the lucky brides and their grooms. It sure will be if not anything one busy and beautiful day.
My FH is currently stationed in Iraq and will ending his year long deployment the end of this month. We had originally decided to marry 08-08-08 and thought is was clever and cool. But since the holidays, we realized that life will not wait for us, we have to take charge! So we decided to move the date up. I jokingly asked him,"Since we are moving up from 08-08-08, want to go for 07-07-07??" as a joke. To my suprise, he said, "Ok, I really like that. Let's go for it!" Needless to say, moving the planning stage from having 1 1/2 years to plan, up to less than 6 month was a shocker! My biggest fear was finding a venue. Everywhere we tried was booked and had been booked forever. My FH suggested I call the Botanic Gardens here in town, but I kept thinking that there was no way there would be an opening. So I could get him off of that track, I finally called. And wouldn't you know it...they had an opening! Since we believe in destinty, fate, luck or whatever you want to call it, what a better way to express our luck in finding each other, than by getting married on the Luckiest Day of 2007!

My FH and i are getting married on 7/7/07! It also happens to be my birthday that day. We werent sure at first on the date, but now we are loving it. All of my family is usually up here around the 4th anyways because its a big holiday for us. So now everyone gets an extended vacation out of it too! Its close to our anniversary 6/27, which is the date we originally wanted but it is on a wednesday this year and we dont know many people who would come to a wedding at night on a wednesday! Our ceremony starts at 7pm too!

My FH and I have been together for 12 years. My stepdad used to race and his number was always 7. My FH used to also race and well... his number was 7 also. It is both of our lucky numbers. We have always laughed at the thought of getting married on 7/7/07. Well here we are getting married on that day! Our wedding colors are going to be purple and yellow, my FH's racing colors and my favorite 2 colors. Also 777 is known to be the Lord's number, of which makes it an even greater day. So superstistious I am not but the number 7 is and will forever be significant in our lives.

haha it was pure coincidence for us, our wedding will be in Morocco and it was the only time our family from Australia America and Europe had a vacation break! I'v been telling myself July 7th and didn't realise it was 07/07/07 until i was filling out a form!
But there are other strangeee double digit coinsidences with my fiance and I. I'm 22 and he is 33 and his Bday is 01/01..Freaky!
I didn't want to worry about getting married until after I completed my degree - and this past December I graduated. Now that that's done, it will be my 25th birthday on 07/07/07, and after being together a little over 8 years, my grandmother is hoping he'll pop the question on this date.... I'll admit that I'm hoping, too!

My pastor gave me the date. I thought nothing of it until my fiance said the date was awesome! Then I found out that the number 7 is for completion. My fiance and I meant in the 7th month, we will be together for 7 years this year in July, I have 7 bridesmaids, we have 7 children between us. He has 7 grandchildren and I will have 7 grandchildren this year! So 070707 is perfect for us. We are planning a big event with a fireworks show after the festivities. Good Luck to all Lucky7 brides and may your dreams and wishes come true for you and your love.

I am a 07/07/07 BRIDE!!! Adam and I met on July 7th, 2005. He proposed in February of '06, and when we started looking at dates for our wedding, I started going through the calendar looking at the dates on all of the Saturdays during 2007. We found out that July 7th of 2007 was on a Saturday and we KNEW THAT IS WHEN WE WOULD HAVE TO GET MARRIED... even though it was 17 months later! But we chose the date mainly because we MET on July 7th rather than the superstitious stuff, even though it is cool that it turned out to be a lucky day!!! :) WE CAN'T WAIT FOR 07/07/07!!!

Ahhh... good ol' number 7! 7 has always been my favorite number. It is the Lord's number, the number of perfection and completion. Since early in 2003 (when I first discovered that 7/7/07 fell on a Saturday), I have been saying that I'm going to get married on that date. I met my fiance' at work (we're both financial advisors) on 8/8/03, and we had been just friends since 4/7/06 when we went on our first "date." Yes, I had been saying for years that I wanted to get married on 7/7/07, but I had no idea how it was going to happen, since I had no one to make it happen with! But when my fiance proposed on 12/26/06, I realized that my dream could actually come true. So, there it is. I'm not superstitous at all. I just wanted to get married on a date that represents my Lord and Savior- perfect and complete.
Our wedding will be in the morning, and the reception will end around 5pm. We're not going to have any special "7" theme for our big day. But it would be kinda interesting to see if we can wait til' 7:07pm to consummate our marriage (good luck to that happening, though, since it will be our 1st time together!)! :-)

Hello girls!! I am also a 07/07/07bride... Its actually my FH's 25th birthday! When he proposed he stated that the best gift he could ever have for his birthday, would be to have me as his wife!!.. & the fact that it is one of the most perfect days of the century makes it even more PERFECT! lol
In the beginning of all the planning, I was becoming a bit overwhelmed with all the news of other 070707 brides.. but now, it just makes it more fun!! Congrats to you all!!!!!

I am a lucky 7 bride! I always planed to have a spring wedding but with finishing college a spring wedding wasn't going to work and we didn't want to wait until the fall, so summer was the only option. With my FH's sister graduating from high school in May and all the open houses going on we decided the wedding would have to be in July. But it had to be early July so that we could be back in town for his sister's birthday later that month, so we picked July seventh and then realized it was lucky 7s and we will have known each other seven years on that day. And the day we fly out on our honey moon will be seven years since we flew out to Jamaica. Even without the lucky sevens I think we are pretty lucky on our own.

I am also getting married on 07-07-07. It is our lucky number and the three year anniversary of our first date. It was my grandparents anniversary, and we went out to eat for dinner at a restraunt that is on the spot where the function hall that my parents had their reception at. We bought our wedding bands in April and I looked at them in September and realized that they both had 7 diamonds in them. So I guess it was meant to be that day.
