In fact, according to a survey of WeddingWire couples, 30 percent of engagements occur between November and January.

We’re nearing the end of 2014 (I know, we can’t believe it either!) and taking a look back at the year in weddings. One of the best ways to sum up 2014 is to look at the images and ideas that our Instagram followers loved the most – it’s a good representation of what was popular this year. From pretty decor details to fabulous fashion, romantic wedding moments to oh-so-sweet proposal stories, take a look at the most-liked photos on WeddingWire’s Instagram in 2014. And if you’re not already following us on Instagram, it’s time to get on that!
Choosing the right wedding vendors is one of the most important parts of planning your big day – and reading reviews of pros near you is one of the best ways to build your vendor team. WeddingWire is thrilled to announce that we now have over two million reviews submitted by newlyweds and wedding professionals, which is the largest number of reviews on any wedding and event industry site.
What does this mean for you? Well, whether you’re looking for a wedding venue, caterer, photographer, or any other type of vendor, you’ll be able to read even more useful reviews of pros in your area, written by real couples, than anywhere else!
“This is a major achievement for the entire WeddingWire community as it signals a major trend in the wedding space where engaged couples are not only relying on reviews to help make their critical wedding decisions, but are actively giving back to all engaged couples in the future,” said Timothy Chi, CEO of WeddingWire. “This incredible milestone of 2,000,000 vendor reviews helps engaged couples find their perfect wedding vendor team and strengthens the vendors’ online reputation and credibility, which ultimately helps them grow their business.”
Ready to start building your vendor team? Start searching for vendors near you (and reading reviews!) here.
And if you’re recently married, be sure to help other couples plan their weddings by writing your own vendor reviews on WeddingWire (bonus: you’ll be entered to win a $1,000 Amazon gift card with every review you write in December)!
