Did you know that the festive season is the popular time of the year for engagements?
While the majority of weddings take place in the summer months, an estimated 100,000 proposals were likely to happen over the 2018 Christmas period, according to Bridebook.co.uk! The wedding planning website looked at month-by-month break down of engagements in 2017 and found that December was the most popular time for proposals, with 40% of all proposals taking place between this month and the 14th of February.
And what comes between the engagement and the wedding?! A party to celebrate saying ‘YES!’ of course!
Popular wedding website theknot.com say ‘the engagement party should fall within a few months of the proposal—otherwise known as the sweet spot between carefree, just-engaged life and the start of serious wedding planning’… which we think means that spring is going to be party central after all those engagements!
There’s many themes and style options for your engagement party, and you could start setting the scene for the big day itself, but don’t feel like you have to rush to choose your colours and invites just yet just so your engagement party can match. The engagement party is might be the first time both sides of the family have a chance to meet, so we say throw caution to the wind, and embrace the fun and celebrations!
Do you know someone who said ‘YES’ this Christmas? Maybe you were lucky enough yourself?!
