Beat the Engagement Season Rush

Looking to get hitched in 2017? Here’s how to secure your date and beat the engagement season rush…

For all you engaged couples who have yet to decide on a reception venue, you need to make a decision before Thanksgiving. Did you know that from Thanksgiving Day to Valentine’s Day  a magical spell is cast over all couples? Well, it’s not magical, but something does happen that spurs a lot of engagements. According to wedding blogs and vendors, Thanksgiving Day marks the start of engagement season. If you want to beat the crazy rush, secure your venue and your chosen vendors by Thanksgiving or risk the chance of losing out to other couples.

For all you couples who get engaged this Thanksgiving, enjoy your engagement, but make sure you have a plan of action come Monday. Research your top venues and schedule some tours. For those of you who want to revel in the moment a bit longer and put off the planning, you may have to postpone your  wedding to the off-season or wait another year due to lack of availability in the prime season.

For those of you who get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day, know that the pickings might be slim, especially if you are shooting for a 2017 wedding. Set real expectations and be flexible with your venue choice and vendor selections. You may not get your number one photographer, but don’t let that hold you back from having your dream wedding.

As a reminder, the Scoular Ballroom will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and Weekend. Tours will resume on November 27. Schedule your tour today: (402) 449-1424.
