Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas anticipates increase in 2017 weddings based on marriage proposals that will take place between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Over 300,000 couples are expected to get engaged during 2016 holiday season.
Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB)November 25, 2016
Thanksgiving weekend, best known for the famous parade, turkey, Black Friday shopping deals, and endless football games, is also considered the kick-off to “wedding season,” when thousands of couples make their relationship official with a marriage proposal and diamond engagement ring, according to Las Vegas wedding venue Chapel of the Flowers.
“Engagement Ring” is one of the top searched terms on Google in November and December, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that hundreds of thousands of social media feeds are filled with posts of smiling couples and “bling” updates on Pinterest, Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook. Over 300,000 engagements in the United States are projected during the 2016 holidays. The busy season is the most popular time of the year to get engaged, with approximately 25% of all marriage proposals taking place between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Chapel of the Flowers, recently recognized as the top wedding venue in Las Vegas by readers of The Las Vegas Review-Journal, and a consistent favorite on The Knot and TripAdvisor, has seen an increase in wedding inquiries and bookings during and immediately after the holidays over the past decade, and Pinterest wedding idea boards will drive many of the requests for photography sessions and flowers.
“This is one of our favorite times of the year, not only because of the spectacular winter ceremonies we have here in the wedding capital of the world during the holidays, but because of the many calls that come in from elated couples who want to start planning the wedding as soon as they announce the engagement.” said Donne Kerestic, CEO at Chapel of the Flowers. “As a family-run business, we love the conversations with just-engaged couples who reach out to us about planning a Las Vegas wedding, and oftentimes our planners will have an entire family on speakerphone, each person sharing hopes and dreams about the Big Day. Some couples are so excited about saying “I do” that they book their wedding at Chapel of the Flowers within weeks, and others inquire about dates several months or a year out. Since we have different types of indoor and outdoor chapels on our unique one acre property, we can usually accommodate last minute requests, which takes away the pressure of wedding planning and allows the couple to enjoy the celebratory time of being engaged.”
Chapel of the Flowers, the only freestanding venue of its kind on the Las Vegas Strip, will host close to 6,000 wedding ceremonies in 2016. Indoor chapels include the newly remodeled Magnolia, the historic Victorian Chapel and the Italian-influenced La Capella. Chapel of the Flowers also has the most popular outdoor wedding settings in Las Vegas: the modern gazebo with crystal drops romantically hanging from the ceiling, and the Glass Gardens, currently being renovated and opening on February 13, 2017, just in time for Valentine’s Day weddings. Chapel of the Flowers, featured in movies, TV shows and music videos, has been located at 1717 Las Vegas Boulevard for nearly 60 years and is in close proximity to the hip SLS Hotel and across the street from the famous Stratosphere.
