Ladies get ready, Engagement season is here! Yes, there is such a thing.

If you haven’t noticed or herd by now, The jewelry stores, tuxedo rentals, DJs, limo services, photography, photo booths, and all wedding vendors prep themselves and start to spend their big ad dollars now! That’s because end of the year holidays are prime season for getting engaged including Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentines Day.

The engagement season statistics say that 1 out of every 3 get engaged between the months of November and February. We call these the love months. If you and that special someone are at that point to move to the next level, then you may want to brace yourself and be prepared for him/ her to pop the question suddenly during these winter months.

Then the planning begins! Where do you start? First thing first is pick a date! Keep in mind if you are a budget bride that most vendors will raise their price in the popular months because of supply and demand.
MARRIAGES BY MONTH:

* January 4.7%
* February 7.0%

After you have selected your date, now its time to reserve your vendors. Here is a list by category and when is appropriate to book them.

Theses statistics came from Wedding Wire. My personal Recommendation is to add 2 months to each category. This will ensure you get the wedding vendors you want and they aren’t booked up already. Then you have to struggle with who’s left.
