And at The Flamingo Las Vegas, a seventh on-site wedding venue has been added to accommodate the 77 scheduled weddings for that day.
"We wanted our couples to be extra lucky in marriage," said Kris Labuda, manager of the Flamingo Garden Chapel. "This date represents good fortune and will be life-changing for so many people."
At the non-resort locations, the little chapels which Vegas is famous for, there is plenty of action.
More than 100 weddings are planned at the popular Chapel of the Flowers.
At the Little White Chapel the schedule was filled with 460 weddings, with more possible.
"We can't make any more reservations but we will take walk-ins and drive-ups, and fit them in when we can," owner Richards said.
The reasons couples say they want this wedding date is divided evenly between those who say the number seven is lucky, and those who say it has religious connotations for them, Richards says.
To help boost profits and provide mementos for their guests, the Little White Chapel is selling t-shirts, coffee mugs and other items made especially for this day.
Virginia Valdez, 57, is at last tying the knot with Stanley, her boyfriend of 10 years.
The California couple decided on July 7 partially because they thought it would be a memorable anniversary date, and partly because they happened to be leaving Las Vegas later that day, anyway.
"We've joked about getting married on this day, but it's definitely going to be special," Valdez said.
"It's kind of neat, especially with all the hype about this date. When I go to work on Monday, everybody will make a big deal out of it."
The couple plans a 7:45 a.m. wedding, then a drive back to California.
"That way we can get out of the desert before the car overheats," she said. Page: 1 2 Related medicine news :1
