Engagement Season

Did you know that roughly 40% of engagements occur between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day?

With that in mind, I find myself meeting and touring couples through our Winery daily this time of year looking for the perfect venue for their dream wedding, and they all have the same question – how long will my preferred date be available? The answer – it depends. It may only be a week, a day, or an hour before another couple arrives who is ready to book that date.

Choosing a wedding venue is never easy and is probably one of, if not the most, important decision to make when planning a wedding. My advice to prospective clients is to ask themselves whether they can envision themselves at a venue and how it feels to imagine that day. If they can picture their friends and family as clear as day dancing the night away, they’ve found their perfect venue.

It’s easy to be overwhelmed with the number of options available to newly engaged couples. Over the last few years, the wedding industry has surged, making it even more difficult for couples to parse out the truly experienced wedding professionals from the hundreds of names that fill the pages of wedding websites.

So what makes a Willow Creek Wedding stand out? Just ask some of our past clients!
