Spring has sprung, and love is in the air. But have you ever wondered why spring is the season of love? Spring is all about new beginnings. Flowers and plants grow anew, and trees regain their leaves. The same can be said for people too. There are New Year resolutions to follow and new beginnings to be had.
In America, around 37 percent of engagements occur between November and February. From there, couples tend to choose either a brief or lengthy engagement. Some couples say “I Do” within the same season, while others tend to take their time. In 2019, the average engagement length was 15 months. Some couples enjoyed a lengthier engagement to have more time to personalize their wedding or because they wanted to get married in a particular season, like spring, and didn’t have enough time during the current year.
Here are the top three reasons why spring has become engagement season.
If you think about it, there are a lot of special holidays during the late winter and early spring. There’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and Valentine’s Day to consider. While not all couples choose a holiday to get engaged in, it’s relatively common in America to do so. What’s more, there are not many holidays outside of these common for an engagement.
Did you know that you’re scientifically more likely to fall in love or get engaged in the springtime? A person’s dopamine levels tend to be higher during the spring because of all the novel experiences that come with the season. As you know, dopamine is one of the key happiness chemicals released naturally in your brain.
Because so many couples get engaged during the holidays, a springtime engagement offers a lot of savings. Engagement rings can be pricey. Purchasing a ring during Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales can help soften the blow to a bank account.
