In the United States, there is an average of 6,200 weddings per day, adding up to approximately 2.4 million ceremonies per year. Nationwide, the top months to get married are June, August, and September – with only January and March see fewer weddings than February. So why is February designated as National Wedding Month? At Campbell’s Flowers, we have discovered the interesting facts that support this month’s honorary status. If you are planning a Pueblo wedding this year, we invite you to sit back, enjoy reading, and then give us a call. February actually owes most of its weddings to a single day – February 14th. After all, Valentine’s Day does effectively crown February as the most romantic month, and the iconic holiday helps to inspire quite a bit of wedding activity. For instance, although Christmas and New Year’s record the highest number of wedding proposals, Valentine’s Day does manage to contribute quite a few engagements – nearly 6 million on that day alone.
Valentine’s Day also is one of the most popular days of the year to get married and is responsible for the large majority of February weddings. With so many people getting married on this romantic day, there is a constantly growing number of people celebrating anniversaries on this day as well. If you got married on Valentine’s Day, there is one very important thing to keep in mind as you celebrate every year – consider celebrating the two events as separate occasions. Ask anyone whose birthday falls on Christmas Day – it’s easy to feel a bit slighted if someone hands you one gift to celebrate two occasions. Our recommendation? Red roses for Valentine’s Day, and romantic lilies for your anniversary.
But according to the National Association of Bridal Consultants, the primary reason that February has been chosen as National Wedding Month is that more brides and grooms begin serious wedding planning during this month than at any other time of the year. The increase in activity signals a new year of love, romance, and gorgeous weddings.
If you live in the Pueblo area, February is the perfect month to call Campbell’s Flowers for your summer or fall wedding. Throughout the year, and for every special occasion – we are your premier local floral experts.
