"This is a special day to get married on since everyone will remember it, and we had booked the slot three months ago," said Chaudhary, an Andheri resident, who will wed Mishra in Goa on Friday.
For the Sawants from Vile Parle, it was co-incidence, or as a relative put it, "a cosmic plan", when their registration took place at 12:12 pm. "As luck would have it, we went in a little after 12 pm and by the time we signed the forms, it was 12:12 pm," said said Nikhil Sawant, 29, a businessman from Vile Parle, who had a wedding reception in the evening.
Goregaon residents Nikhil Mohindra and Kayan Motashe, had waited for this day for a year and a half. "One of our friends had got married on 10/10/10 and we liked the idea," said Motashe, 25.
