WeddingWire Now Helps Engaged Couples Answer the Perpetual Question: 'What's your wedding date?'

Leading Online Wedding Planning Resource Launches Wedding Date Data

CHEVY CHASE, Md., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- WeddingWire, Inc., the global leader for online wedding planning revealed its latest resource for recently engaged couples who need to find their wedding date--just in time for the couples who have contributed to the 40 percent of engagements occurring between Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day. The first wedding date education resource of its kind, WeddingWire now informs engaged couples as they make one of the initial critical decisions in the wedding planning process--the date. Selecting a wedding date affects numerous pieces including what vendors are available to book, hotel and travel costs and availability, and whether friends and family are able to attend the big day--making the task a seemingly daunting one. To ease the stress, couples can now utilize WeddingWire to search for wedding date options by location and desired month to get the information they should know--from important events and holidays, to the popularity of others getting married on a particular day, and more-- helping them to be more informed when reaching out to venues and working toward their final wedding date choice.

WeddingWire provides data-driven insight on dates through 2019 in the U.S., so no matter if couples are planning and booking locally, planning a destination wedding in a different city, or deciding between multiple locations, they have important national and local information needed to evaluate their options right at their fingertips. Color-coded dates demonstrate the most popular days to get married in order to help couples expect potential peak and off-peak availability and pricing and significant events are denoted with icons for easy reference. Users can just click on days of interest for information that may be relevant to their wedding date, ranging from national holidays, to the Kentucky Derby, to local sporting events, marathons and festivals, fun dates like "7/17/17", season changes such as daylight saving time and even celebrity wedding dates. Who wouldn't want to share a wedding anniversary with Beyonce and Jay-Z?

"Choosing a wedding date is one of the first major decisions in the wedding planning process, and with 50 percent of all weddings in 2017 occurring on 25 dates, engaged couples feel the pressure to get it right," said Andy Whittaker, Director of Market Insights, WeddingWire. "We understand there are numerous factors that go into selecting a date to say 'I do', with venue availability playing a major factor, so we wanted to educate couples about their options and arm them with useful information to help them choose a date and find a venue that works best for them."

WeddingWire is committed to providing resources to couples so they feel more informed and confident in making wedding planning decisions like picking a wedding date.
