Tis’ the Season to Propose?

December 7, 2012

Did you know that December is the most popular month for proposals? That’s right! June is ‘wedding month’, but December is the month to pop the question according to PRNewswire, and many celebrity proposal specialists. Why you may ask? It seems the feeling of family and the beautiful scenery just makes the moment feel right. December accounts for about one in every five proposals, with actual Christmas Day leading the way.

December is here, you have the holidays, family and a picturesque proposal then panic sets in. The multitude of to-dos becomes overwhelming. What things are most important, what can you skimp on, what will make or break your big day?  So many questions, so little time!

Most brides-to-be vote that the photography and food are their two top priorities. Guests will remember the food and you only have the pictures to last a lifetime.  Selecting a catering service will not only ensure delicious food, but will help with the ease and flow of your entire reception.  A good wedding caterer will act as a wedding planner in many ways.

From cocktail hour, to pre meal appetizers, to the sit down dinner your catering service will handle it all (not to mention any pre-wedding events if you wish).  The best caterers are those who listen to exactly what you want your day to be like. The food and flow must match your own style and décor. We all have an idea of certain ‘musts’ and ‘do nots’ for our wedding day. A good service will be open and creative helping you to create menus, displays and timing that fits what you have dreamed of.

Make sure to think broad when talking to catering services. Many of them will handle lots of wedding needs aside from just food such as linens, servers, bar, décor and much more. It’s up to you as the host how much or little your service does for you.
