There are so many reasons to love the holiday season. From spending quality time with family and friends to giving (and receiving!) gifts, there’s an overwhelming sense of togetherness and gratitude. And – perhaps, not surprisingly – it’s a popular time of year for proposals and engagements. In fact, according to a survey of WeddingWire couples, 30 percent of engagements occur between November and January. If you’re among this lucky group, and are ready to start thinking about planning your wedding (maybe take some time to relax first!), check out our five-step planning guide here. And if you’re fortunate enough to be hosting or attending a wedding during this magical time of year, check out 16 reasons why holiday weddings are the best.
Happy holidays from the WeddingWire team!
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)!
