Wedding Bells are Ringing If your Facebook newsfeed has been unusually laden with engagement announcements recently, you’re in good company. Facebook found that one-third of people get engaged between November and December and 2.6 million people in the U.S. alone changed their statuses to “Engaged” last year. Wedding season is officially upon us!
It comes as no surprise that the most popular day to pop the question is Christmas Eve, with Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day following closely behind. If ‘I do’ day is quickly approaching, then chances are good that your stress level is flying sky-high. Being as they are (busy, stressful, family-filled… did we mention stressful?) the months of November and December are crazy in themselves, let alone adding wedding planning to the holiday mix.
If you’re among the lucky ringbearers out there, you’re going to want to keep reading because we’re going to let you in on a little secret…
What to Know Ahead of Time
After that initial over the moon feeling of your engagement wears off (trust us, it will eventually), the reality of what it takes to plan a wedding sets in. Every detail – from the flowers, the cake, the dress, the invitations, and the color scheme, down the fabric of the linens — must be considered. And did we mention that there’s a time frame for all of this? With everyone getting married at roughly the same time, vendors’ schedules book up fast. If you’re thinking of getting married during early summer or fall, add a couple more months to plan because everyone else is having the same thought.
With that in mind, it’s smart to start considering all your options; whether that be getting married close to home or cherishing a more intimate gathering at an exotic destination. Each option has its perks but deciding on what is best suited to your needs is key.
How do we plan?
Amidst all the hustle and bustle of solidifying the details of your perfect wedding, the week after your wedding might be the most important detail of all. The honeymoon is the start of your new journey together with your spouse; a time to escape all the pent-up wedding day stress and overwhelming family members, to a more relaxed setting before beginning a new chapter of life. It’s crucial to give yourself this time to reconnect with your spouse before facing the challenges of the every day.
Lucky for you, planning a honeymoon getaway needn’t be nearly as stressful as planning an entire wedding. At South Georgia Travel, we offer a wide range of services meant to expedite the planning process and guarantee you the honeymoon experience of your dreams. Not to mention, our honeymoon registry option allows you to select a number of excursions, spa treatments, or gift cards for your chosen destination and start receiving these gifts from family, friends, and wedding guests.
If you’re wondering where your ideal destination lies, let us help you discover a location that both you and your spouse will adore. From Los Cabos, Mexico, to a Caribbean beach resort, to a scenic location not far from home, our endless options give you the freedom to shoot for the moon.
