February is National Wedding Month, giving couples everywhere the chance to celebrate their day during the most romantic month of the year. Here in Tucson, we are lucky that we can get married year round, but nationally speaking, February is not even close to a top choice for wedding ceremonies, (June, August and September top that list). So how did February earn the designation of National Wedding Month? Here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we have a few theories.
February may not be at the top of the list overall, but February 14th does rank as one of the most popular days of the year to get married. Steeped in romance and meaning, Valentine’s Day is sought after by couples, even when it falls on a weekday. But it’s not for everyone – experts say that much like a child born on Christmas Day, people can begin to feel like loved ones are combining the two very important occasions into one event – or worse, one gift. If you did get married on Valentine’s Day, consider separating out the celebrations. For instance, give her breakfast in bed and a dozen roses for Valentine’s Day, and a bouquet of lilies over a romantic anniversary dinner.
Valentine’s Day also inspires quite a few engagements, with approximately 6 million proposals annually. However, the majority of marriage proposals happen over Christmas and New Year’s Day, which brings us to the most likely reason that February is known as National Wedding Month. According to the National Association of Bridal Consultants, all the newly engaged couples begin serious wedding planning in the month of February, setting off a flurry of activity with wedding vendors of all kinds.
