Wedding Stats For Photo Booth Rentals
Wedding season may be in full swing, but now is a great time to plan for 2016 success. With that in mind I wanted to share the latest stats and trends that WeddingWire gathered from engaged couples and newlyweds.
• Summer is also engagement season. Winter is still the peak time for engagements, but 24% of proposals happen between June and August. Make sure you’re still focusing on reaching newly-engaged couples – they’re the reason you’ll have a successful 2016 (not to mention fall and winter deposits!).
• Couples start planning right away. You know today’s couples are tech-savvy, planning their weddings online and on mobile. But do you know how quickly they start? 49% of our couples visit WeddingWire within one month of their engagement – some even before they say “yes!”
• Budgets can be flexible. Most couples have a budget, but 74% of newlyweds reported going over their projected wedding costs. Only 16% stayed under their allotted amount, so don’t be afraid to talk price.
Many of my other clients found these insights helpful as they form their 2016 marketing plans. We would love to talk to you a bit more about what we’re seeing in the industry, including the top factors that influence couples’ booking decisions.
