Experience Tuscan Ridge Wedding and Events Venue

It is that time of year again. Social media feeds are full of engagement photos. Is it because the holidays present the perfect time to buy large ticket item gifts? Is it because people don’t to feel alone during the holiday season? Sort of. In a 2015 article by Olivia Goldhill for, (Goldhill, 2015) she embarked on finding the theory for the reasoning why couples have a higher rate of engagements between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve.  

According to Goldhill’s research, proposals with engagement rings tend to be a symbol of the grand gesture of love and commitment. Since peak engagement season tends to be during the holidays, it is believed this is due to the season being a time of family and two loves exchanging vows is an ultimate way of creating a new family. The end of the year, according to her research, suggests that this is when people generally tend to ponder their lives and make big decisions about their futures. Another theory discussed is that since family is usually gathered together for the holidays, that it is an opportune and practical time to celebrate an engagement with them at this time. So, in essence, it all comes down to family and a sense of togetherness.  

Once a couple is engaged, it is time for the Bride and Groom to start looking for wedding venues and reception venues, someone to do the wedding photography and a place to find the perfect wedding dress and veil.
