Just Engaged? Wedding Planning Tips and Trends

The wedding industry is experiencing a surge in demand, with many couples looking to plan their 2024 and 2025 weddings. As a result, there is a substantial increase in the demand for venues and wedding professionals. Our advice is to start planning as soon as you can, as the most sought-after vendors are likely to be booked quickly.

Proposal Season:
Out of the ten most popular days to propose, seven take place in December, with the average engagement lasting 15 months. The "engagement season" typically spans from Thanksgiving to Valentine's Day.

The Proposal:
From selecting the perfect location to hiring a photographer and planning a post-engagement gathering with family and friends, over 40% of proposers begin making arrangements one to three months in advance of the proposal.

New Trends:
Traditional Saturdays are becoming scarcer due to the increasing number of couples getting married. Weekday weddings are on the rise, providing couples with more flexibility to design their dream wedding. If you haven't started yet, it's time to think about the season in which you'd like to tie the knot. Start a conversation with your fiancé about your wedding plans. Here's a guide to help you find the perfect wedding venue. It's also important to know how to approach and inquire about wedding professionals. Wondering how to inquire?
