The holiday season has always been the most popular time to get engaged
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
OneWed.com, the wedding planning website with the largest online wedding vendor database, declares January 5, 2009 as "Matrimony Monday." Just like on Cyber Monday, the internet is the hottest destination for newly engaged couples as they eagerly start their planning process. After a whirlwind season of holiday engagements, this is the biggest day for online traffic and extensive wedding research.
According to a recent study by the Fairchild Bridal Group, an estimated 28% of all engagements happen around the holidays in November and December. Once the celebrations end, the wedding planning begins, starting with a boom on the Monday after New Year's.
To celebrate this online occasion, OneWed.com has partnered with Luscious Verde, the customized handmade stationery company to launch a contest for one lucky entrant to win $5,000 in customized wedding stationery. Contestants can enter by visiting http://www.OneWed.com to view complete submission guidelines, rules and regulations.
"The holiday season has always been the most popular time to get engaged," says OneWed.com VP of Marketing Jennifer Napier. "Couples are typically away from work and either home with family and friends, or off vacationing together--it is the perfect time to propose and share the exciting news. Once the holiday season comes to a close and couples have returned to the daily grind, brides-to-be are anxious to hit the ground running and turn to the Internet to begin wedding planning, searching for wedding dresses, wedding photographers, florists, and more."
