Gwinnett County, GA
If you’re looking for a unique date to tie the knot, today is the day.
Nov. 12, 2013, or 11-12-13, will make an easy anniversary to remember, according Gwinnett Chief Magistrate Kristina Blum.
She and Probate Judge Christopher Ballar are setting aside special wedding hours today from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. complete with flowers in the courtrooms.
“When people come in on a special date we make a bigger deal out of it than we would on a normal day when we have a busy operating courtroom,” Blum tells WSB’s Sandra Parrish.
Both judges try to pay special attention to unique dates that could be a draw to couples.
She says last year nearly 100 nuptials were performed in Gwinnett Magistrate Court for Dec. 12, 2012.
“It’s a wedding date that no self-respecting husband or wife should forget,” says Blum.
Weddings will be performed on a first-come, first-served basis. Just make sure to bring you marriage license first.
“We’ll see how many people we can get married,” she says. “I don’t know if it will match the same volume that we had on 12-12-12, but we were already talking about next year when we’ll have 12-13-14.”
The county also holds special ceremonies on Valentine’s Day.
