Last February, over 2 BILLION dollars was spent at the jewelry store…and yes, plenty of that went to sparkly diamond rings so that “the” question could be popped! Whether you’re already planning your wedding, or are still waiting for that ring, we wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
That said, Valentine’s Day is (not surprisingly) one of the more popular days of the year to get engaged. Other holidays that people prefer are Christmas, Thanksgiving, and yes, even New Year’s Eve. In the wedding industry, we like to call this time of the year “engagement season”. Many vendors will see a huge rush of newly engaged brides and grooms rush to their doors wanting to start the planning process right around this time. Keep this in mind if you’re one of the lucky ones to get a ring put on your finger on Cupid’s holiday!
The first step, after showing off the bling, is to start interviewing wedding coordinators. We are the glue that will hold your day together and the best friend to be with you every step of the way. Whether you’re looking to walk down the aisle before the next Valentine’s Day, or you want to take your time and explore your options, the wedding planner is the first person you call. We’ll be able to talk to you about your vision and really guide you to the right venue and the right vendors.
Don’t bask in the shine of that pretty new ring too long though, because those vendors that are on the top of your list, will be on the top of someone else’s that got proposed to today! Brides and grooms that are able to secure their number one choice of vendor in each category will always find the wedding planning process less stressful than others who wait.
So Happy Valentine’s Day to all of those couples out there! Make sure your first phone call is to us so we can get started on planning that special day!
