Engagement Season in The Washington Post!

We were very excited to see that Santa left a copy of The Washington Post in our stocking on Christmas morning! Ellen McCarthy's piece on engagement season is a great read and we were honored to have been included. This time of year, many lucky ladies will be receiving a ring, and this article gives some insight into the vendor side of engagement season.

"Even couples who got engaged long before the holidays often double down on their planning efforts after the new year. “Over the holiday, everyone asks these girls, ‘When’s your wedding? What’s your wedding date?’ And those who don’t have an answer want an answer quick,” says Jennifer Stiebel, founder of SoCo Events, a Washington wedding planning firm. “If they don’t have that all squared up, panic sets in.”

Stiebel typically gets 50 percent of her inquiries for the year in January and February, so she’ll spend much of next month meeting with prospective clients, polishing her portfolio and touching base with favorite vendors. She gets some calls from couples just starting out and others from brides who got halfway through the planning process and began to feel overwhelmed."
