December is the most popular date for popping the question with the five most common engagement dates for weddings falling in this month, according to Bridebook's 2019 research.
Bridebook’s last UK Wedding Survey calculated the average engagement length as 23.5 months.
32% of couples update their Facebook status to ‘engaged’ within 24 hours. This is music to the ears of wedding marketers, who can use this data to target their ads to recently engaged couples on Facebook and Instagram.
Almost half of couples book their venue within three months of getting engaged, and one third within two months. These early days of engagement are key months for venues to get in front of prospective couples.
