Many people may be surprised to learn that February is National Wedding Month. After all, it might seem more logical that such a designation would be given to June, September, or October – the top three months for wedding ceremonies nationwide. But there is actually a great reason for the selection of February, and it involves Christmas! To learn more, read on.
Don’t Forget: At Peoples Flowers, we love romance no matter what month it is! If you are one of the thousands celebrating Albuquerque engagements and weddings this month, we’d be honored to work with you.
The National Association of Bridal Consultants tells us that their choice of the chilly winter month has little to do with how many weddings take place, and everything to do with an increase in inquiries and bookings for wedding resources, such as caterers, venues, bridal boutiques, entertainment, and wedding florists. More marriage proposals take place over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays than any other time, resulting in thousands of engagements. Those newly engaged couples seem to get their footing and really get serious in the month of February, causing a spike in wedding resource activity and earning February the honor of National Wedding Month.
Think Ahead: Experts stress the importance of hiring your florist at least 6-8 months prior to your event. If you are planning a summer or fall wedding this year, February is the perfect time to call to ensure the booking. With over 2.4 million weddings annually, most taking place over only 52 weekends, you’ll want to claim your spot!
Peoples Flowers also thinks we should mention that February is such a romantic month to begin with – Valentine’s Day inspires approximately 6 million marriage proposals annually, and February 14th is also a popular choice for couples looking to tie the knot. So whether you are celebrating Albuquerque engagements, weddings or anniversaries – we offer impeccable customer service, professional expertise, and sheer artistic floral beauty to help you share the love.
