The holiday season is upon us. Soon we’ll be spending time with dear friends and family members as we gather to celebrate the season.

Engagement Season

Did you know that this season is also when most wedding engagements occur? It’s true. In the U.S., “engagement season” takes place from late November through mid-February. So, if you’ve been holding out for that special request, your day may be coming sooner than you think.

For those who are already engaged, the holidays are also the perfect setting for a wedding plans Q&A session at the dinner table.

Either way, once all of the congratulations and views of the ring are over, those big “when” and “where” inquires will undoubtedly begin. Perhaps you haven’t yet started to think about a wedding venue, however now is a better time than ever to consider your options. Many popular venues book far out in advance, and having a better idea before all the questions start will help you survive engagement season with ease.

Planning Your Wedding

Since most wedding plans are made about a year out from when you said “Yes!” you’ll want to pick a date and location sooner than later. Topping the list of items to start your planning and budgeting are location and food.
