As we make our way through cold weather and snowstorms in this part of the country, we may wonder why February has been designated as National Wedding Month. It is not as if February is a popular month for nuptials – as a matter of fact, it falls at 10th place on the list, with June, August, and September being the top choices for brides. But the National Association of Bridal Consultants actually had a strong argument for choosing this wintry month for the designation, and it has more to do with wedding planning than wedding ceremonies.
If you are among the many planning Philadelphia weddings this year, you can trust Robertson’s Flowers to provide the most spectacular bridal bouquets, centerpieces, and venue decor – not to mention exceptional expertise and customer service.
Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days of the year to get engaged, but two days beat it out – Christmas and New Years. And it is precisely the timing of all those proposals that make February a very important month for weddings. Experts tell us that most of those newly engaged couples begin serious wedding planning during this month, causing a significant increase in inquiries and bookings for wedding venues and resources across the board.
Did You Know? February is the perfect month to book with Robertson’s Flowers for your summer, fall and winter wedding. Experts recommend a minimum of 6 months preparation with your floral design consultants – and more time is even better. Due to Valentine’s Day, February does get its fair share of proposals and wedding ceremonies. In fact, an average of 6 million couples get engaged every February 14th, and the day is also one of the most sought-after for exchanging vows. Of course, with so many weddings on Valentine’s Day annually, there is a large population of folks celebrating anniversaries on the iconic holiday.
Just a Thought: If you are one of those romantics who tied the knot on Valentine’s Day, be aware that experts recommend that you not “merge” the two occasions into one dinner or one gift. Preserve the significance of each occasion with two celebrations – and don’t forget the flowers!
February may not be the top month for wedding ceremonies, but with so many sweethearts, millions of proposals and weddings, and an increasing number of anniversaries – there is no denying the romance of the month. Those planning Philadelphia weddings only have one call to make this month – Robertson’s Flowers is engagement, wedding, and anniversary central!
