As we move quickly through the month of February, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to talk about one of the most romantic days of the year: Valentine’s Day. Not only is this the day for lover’s but it’s also one of the most popular days to get engaged!
If you’re planning to pop the question or were one of the lucky ones on the receiving end of a beautiful ring this year, Congratulations!
Now the fun begins!
As experts in the wedding industry, we wanted to offer tips that we think will help you during this next part of the wedding planning process.
Deciding on a Day
Before you can officially book a wedding venue this step is very important if you want to secure the top locations) you’ll need to pick a day. Here are a few points to consider as you do:
Weekday Weddings: Weddings that happen on a weekday are increasingly becoming popular. Premier wedding venues like The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station or The Society Room of Hartford offer a number of pricing options for booking different days and times of the week for your special day without compromising on the incredible food and service we are famous for.
Saturday Weddings: Historically, Saturday nights have been the time of choice to get married. As the most requested time, it also comes with a higher price tag. If you still want a Saturday wedding, you may want to think about one that happens earlier. A Saturday morning is perfect for guests who are not night owls. They will appreciate getting home by 5 PM and you can have your wedding but still have an after-party with those that want to keep the party going late!
Sunday Weddings: If you do not plan on having your ceremony at a church, then Sundays are also a great day to consider getting married on. Most people are available to attend on this day which can increase your guest count and at both The Riverhouse and Society Room you can choose to have your ceremony right on-site and even choose your timing and schedule for the day’s events.

Since Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days to get engaged, that means many others are following this same timeline now and trying to pick a date and location for their big day too.
