Christmas is the busiest time of year for marriage proposals- around 100,000 couples are thought to have become engaged over the festive season, according to planning website Bridebook.co.uk. And so it goes that January becomes one of the busiest times of the year for a wedding dress designer. A new batch of brides-to-be will begin making their initial enquiries (we're looking at you, Meghan Markle) and, as such, the bridal industry steps up to make this the month to secure The Dress.
“January is a common time for people to kick off their wedding planning,” says Hamish Shephard, founder of Bridebook. “Firstly, there has always historically been a high number of engagements over the festive period and people waste no time in booking their dream venue before their preferred date is snapped up. Secondly, couples who got engaged last year see the new year as the turning point when the countdown officially begins, so they start to get organised too.”
These are the tips to note...
The new collections are arriving
It’s out with the old and in with the new, as designers are currently restocking their boutiques with their 2018 collections. Some brands offer one collection per year, others will split into spring/summer and autumn/winter offerings (the latter being the styles seen on the catwalk in October) but both collections will currently be available to order. January, in this case, is the time when choices are bountiful.
