In February, romance is all around us, thanks largely to the observance of Valentine’s Day. It seems weddings are on people’s minds as well, prompting the National Association of Bridal Consultants to name the month as National Wedding Month. For those of us locked in frigid weather this month, that may seem odd – in fact, June, August, and September are the top three months for weddings. So why the designation for February? Turns out there are actually quite a few reasons. If you are planning a wedding in White Plains, Yonkers, or Westchester in 2017, you may be interested in these facts. And even if you have been married for a long time, National Wedding Month has some implications for you as well! No matter what your stage along love’s journey, Blossom Flower Shops are the area’s premier source for flowers.
Fun Wedding Fact: In America, we average 6,200 weddings per day! That adds up to approximately 2.4 million weddings per year.
As Valentine’s Day occurs in February, it already is ahead in the romance department. But here are just a few more facts that support its selection as National Wedding Month:
- February 14th is one of the most popular days of the year to get married. Another very popular wedding date occurs in February as well – sometimes. It seems that February 29, which occurs every four years, is a sought after date for unique couples with a sense of humor.
- Despite the popularity of those dates, the rest of the month is often largely ignored in wedding planning. Therefore the month still fails to rate as top month to get married.
- Serious wedding planning tends to begin more so in February than any other month. This is probably due to the fact that a majority of proposals happen over Christmas and New Years.
- With so many weddings occurring on Valentine’s Day, there are millions of wedding anniversaries occurring in February annually. For those who are celebrating in February, experts recommend distinguishing between your personal anniversary and the big holiday. Think of how people born on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day often feel slighted by only receiving one gift – or no party or recognition at all. Your spouse may appreciate knowing that both days are very important to youFor those planning a Tri-state area wedding, National Wedding Month is a great time to review your schedule and start planning. Don’t forget – call Blossom Flower Shops at least 6 months in advance of your date!
