My fiance and I choose this date in early August of 2018 when we first got engaged. We knew we wanted to get married in August of 2020, and this second Saturday of the month worked best for our schedules. We had no pull towards this date for the double numbers, but it is pretty neat!
I Googled our date for fun tonight and found the following. I thought it would be something fun for others sharing our date!
"August 8, 2020: In the Chinese culture the number 8 symbolizes success and prosperity so seeing that this day is 8-8-2020, a double 8 is extremely lucky for a couple’s first day as husband and wife!"
