SOUTH FLORIDA (CBSMiami) – For engaged couples, 12-12-12 may not have the numerical appeal of 11-11-11, but it’s a date that won’t return for 100 years.

That fact was enough to attract novelty-seeking couples from across the country to South Florida clerks’ offices.

“There are so few times that people come to the courthouse for good things,” Palm Beach County Clerk Sharon Bock told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Bock’s staff will marry 25 couples throughout the day.

Brides and grooms across Broward County are rushing its clerks’ office as well.

“A lot of guys who forget their anniversary, they can remember this date,” Clerk Howard Foreman told the Sun-Sentinel.
