Aug. 1, 2018 will mark the first of several “magic wedding dates” next month, which include the palindromic dates of 8/1/18 and 8/18/18, as well as the equally auspicious date of 8/8/18.
Long considered to be a lucky number (in Chinese, eight is “ba,” which is similar to “fa,”meaning fortune), the number eight can also represent infinity, prosperity, balance and harmony.
Earlier this summer, Caesars Entertainment conducted a Facebook contest, encouraging couples to explain why they are lucky in love. More than 25 couples from around the country entered the contest. The winning couple is Justin Brittingham and Heather Bagley, who are based in Las Vegas! They will receive the complimentary wedding inside the High Roller cabin at 550 feet in the air, making them the first couple to get married on this magic date. Destination Las Vegas will provide the officiant, flowers and décor for the High Roller cabin, as well as a wedding gown, hair and make-up for the bride.
August is expected to be one of busiest months of the year in Las Vegas for weddings, as many couples will be seeking an auspicious start to their marriage.
Wedding to begin at 11:59 p.m., concluding shortly after midnight on Wednesday, Aug. 1.
