Every year, an average of 2.4 million weddings are performed in the US – and this month, we celebrate them all! According to the National Association of Bridal Consultants, February is National Wedding Month. While this month may seem an odd choice – it is not the most popular month for weddings, especially in Anchorage – there are several reasons that February was chosen.
Did You Know? Here in Alaska, our stunning natural scenery inspires outdoor wedding venues, meaning that June through August are peak times to celebrate nuptials.
February is the month of romance, given the fact that Valentine’s Day resides there. February 14th represents a big day for proposals and is also one of the most popular days on the calendar nationwide for weddings. This alone could earn it the distinction of National Wedding Month, but there is more. Statistics tell us that more people begin planning their weddings in the month of February than any other time of the year; a fact that makes sense against the backdrop of all the holiday proposals.
When Should I Decide on the Florals for my Alaska Wedding? Call Bagoy’s Florist and Home at least 6 months prior to your wedding day. If you are planning a summer wedding, you should be speaking with us by February!
For those who have celebrated a past February wedding, observing your anniversary may require some finesse. You may be tempted to roll your anniversary and Valentines Day into one event. However, relationship consultants advise strongly against this practice. Much like Christmas Day birthday children often feel slighted because people only buy one gift to cover both occasions, your anniversary deserves special attention! No matter what you do to celebrate Valentines Day, make sure that you set aside a distinct time to also celebrate your relationship – and don’t forget the flowers!
Bagoy’s Florist & Home is the best choice for all things romance. So whether you spend National Wedding Month celebrating a proposal, a wedding, or an anniversary, we have the perfect flowers for the occasion.
