Recent Etiquette + Advice Posts

One of the first (of a million) questions you’ll be asked after you get engaged is: “Have you set a date?” The “when” question is a big one, so we asked 6,000 couples to share when they got engaged and married. Turns out May through October is the most popular time of year to get married (no huge shock there), but June wins the prize for the most popular month to wed—with 16% of 2015 weddings occurring in June. And the most popular month to get engaged? Turns out the holiday season is also prime engagement season—December takes the cake, with 16% of 2015 engagements happening in December. Check out our infographic below and our 2015 Newlywed Report to learn more.
