Kane County courthouse officials foresee a rise in walk-in weddings Tuesday, as area couples seek to tie the knot on a date they will never forget: 11/12/13.

Judges will perform wedding ceremonies from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Kane County Judicial Center.

Weddings are by appointment only from Monday through Thursday, with Fridays being open to walk-in weddings from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

"We do expect we're going to have quite a few weddings," said Judith Brawka, chief judge of the 16th Judicial Circuit, which includes Kane County. "There's so much demand for 11/12/13, we opened it up as a public service. The suggestion was made that we do it as a public service. It sounded like a good idea."

Some see dates with consecutive numbers as being lucky. Others find them easy to remember.

Some couples are taking the consecutive numbers thing to a whole new level, trying to get married at 9:10 a.m. (Get it? 9:10/11/12/13), but Brawka said that would not be possible at the St. Charles courthouse because they're not doing weddings in the morning.

To accommodate the expected rise in walk-in weddings, Brawka said several judges had doubled up on their afternoon court calls to free up others who wanted to volunteer.

"Adoptions, marriages and civil unions are basically the happiest things we do as judges," Brawka said. "Judges are very willing to preside over these happy proceedings."

For those of you looking ahead, Dec. 13, 2014 is the last time this century that a date will have consecutive numbers.

It also is a Saturday.
