The most popular wedding day in history? While there are no exact stats, July 7th, 2007 (7/7/7) was hugely popular. Las Vegas wedding chapels were sold out well in advance from 6 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. You might be able to guess which times were the least popular…. not only was it all lucky sevens, but the date adds up to 21 in blackjack for those getting hitched or honeymooning in Las Vegas.
