When is Engagement Season?

Engagement season actually takes place around the same time each year, which also happens to be during the Fall and Winter Seasons. It’s the time of the year when engagements spike through the roof during the months of November, December, January & February. It also makes engagements extra special when they happen during the Holidays. So if you’ve ever wondered if there is such thing as an engagement season, I’m here to tell you it’s real, it actually happens, and it calls for extra celebrations! And if you say “Yes” during engagement season, you’ll be sending out what we like to call Winter Themed Wedding Save The Date Cards. If you don’t get engaged during engagement season (Fall & Winter), please save this post and thank me later!

Custom Winter Save The Date Cards

Nowadays, we have many couples looking for wedding inspiration and a very large percentage of these couples look for custom and personalized items such as Save The Date cards. As a suggestion for my couples, I love the professional, modern, and custom-made stationery from Basic Invite. Basic Invite offers a huge variety of stationery for your wedding, as well as free wedding websites that are completely customizable, mobile friendly, and easy to use. With almost unlimited options and over 180 colors and 100 fonts to choose from, you’ll surely find something modern and trendy for your save the dates and wedding invitation sets. Their newest collection is the Seal & Send Wedding Invitations which is an all-in-one, super trendy wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included. Addresses get printed on the front of the invitation so there's no need for an envelope, and brides are falling deeply in love with them!

And I totally get it. Hassle-free wedding stationary means less stress and more fun! But, why should you have save the date cards to begin with? Well, from a wedding planning perspective I can tell you it’s the best way to keep your wedding organized and here’s why.
