You would think February has all the romance it can handle, with Valentine’s Day taking place right in the middle of the month. And the holiday does inspire quite a bit of activity in regards weddings and proposals – 6 million couples celebrate their engagement every year, and the day is one of the most popular for weddings as well. With so many weddings annually, there are also an ever-increasing number of anniversaries celebrated on this special day. Perhaps these statistics are the reason for February being National Wedding Month?
Here is the Real Reason: According to the National Association of Bridal Consultants, the designation actually has more to do with Christmas and New Years. Those two holidays combined comprise the largest number of marriage proposals made throughout the year. The timing of that influx of newly engaged couples results in a sharp uptick in serious wedding planning come February – hence the title of National Wedding Month!
