Fun Facts: How You Plan

Posted by Kim on Mar 17, 2016

We’ve been sharing the results of our2015 Newlywed Report on the blog, and this week we’re sharing what couples had to say about how they’re planning their weddings. One of the most interesting (though not entirely surprising) things: It turns out wedding planning really is like a part-time job—at their busiest, most couples spend about 15 hours per week planning. And 80% of that time is spent planning online (hopefully on WeddingWire, natch!). Learn more about how couples plan their weddings in the infographic below. And don’t forget to check out our 2015 Newlywed Report for lots of great and useful info!

Stella & Dot WeddingWire Social Charlotte

Couples in the Charlotte, North Carolina area were treated to a fun night of food, drink, shopping, and helpful wedding talk this week at our WeddingWire Social! Attendees perused Stella & Dot jewelry and accessories, swapped tips with other couples planning weddings in the area, and got an exclusive sneak peek at the 50 Fresh Ideas story featured in WeddingWire’s just-released WinterBook. They were also able to have their planning questions answered by WeddingWire editor Sarah Zlotnick and Charlotte event planner Heather Bryson of Carolina Event Design.  Scroll down for pictures from the event.
