And Santa Claus is coming to town, dropping off rings for all the gals! Sure, that isn't how the song really goes but the season of engagements is upon us! Whether it be wrapped up in a box with a little bow, stuffed in a stocking, or baked in a snowman shaped cupcake, engagement rings are really all around this season.
The diamond ads are all over the TV, storefront windows are filled with sparkle, and your Facebook timeline is surely filling up with "relationship status updates". According to Wedding Wire, 43% of engagements happen between November to January. The family is all together at this time, love is in the air and people are in the mood to unwrap presents!
Once the calendar switches over to January, wedding planning is in full swing for those who are engaged. In fact, The Wonderful World of Weddings is the first weekend in January in Milwaukee at the State Fair grounds, and Bank of Memories & Flowers can't wait to see all the bling and to talk wedding flowers! It's a fun time to see all the couples walking around, sampling cakes, looking at dresses and finding venues.
This year, our very own wedding coordinator, Sam Conner, gets to do all of those things as she is newly engaged. "I'm really excited to be part of the crowd this year as well as a vendor again. Also, getting to sample cakes is what my fiance is looking forward to!" The dates are Saturday January 4th, and Sunday January 5th from 10am to 4:30pm. We can't wait to see you there!
Sam's New Diamond!
