CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Seven has always been
considered a lucky number with great superstitious and religious
significance. There are Seven Wonders of the World, seven continents, seven
seas and 7-7-7 signifies a Las Vegas Jackpot. So, the approach of July 7,
2007, which falls on a Saturday, is understandably generating a great deal
of excitement worldwide. The new Seven Wonders of the World will be
announced in Portugal on this date and Live Earth Concerts will be held on
seven continents to promote action against global warming. Desperate
Housewife Eva Longoria and Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs are
planning to tie the knot in Paris on this special day. And, they're not
alone. With the lucky connotation of the date, 7-07-07 is shaping up to be
the most popular wedding day of the century.
David's Bridal, the only national bridal retailer with more than 275
stores, estimates that there will be approximately 65,000 couples in the US
who will marry on 7-07-07. The industry leader alone will dress nearly
20,000 brides, with that number likely increasing as the date nears. "Seven
has always been perceived as a lucky number, so it's not surprising that
many people are choosing to get married on this auspicious date," said
Cindi Freeburn, Vice President of Public Relations for David's Bridal.

to be a part of so many people's 'lucky' day."
