Judging by the name of this blog, you could be forgiven for thinking it was about who you were taking out for a drink and a nice time – but the date I am referring to is the date of the year.
This week’s blog is a gentle reminder to make sure you make enquiries early – as the date you have chosen for your special event could be the same as many others!
Every now and then we begin to see patterns around popular dates for events – via the 1000’s of enquiries that come through our website each month. Often they are obvious ones like May or August bank holiday – but occasionally, for whatever reason, another date is super popular for the events.
Sometimes a lot of people just like the sound of a date – this is coming from someone who was married on what, unbeknownst to us, was Star Wars day – May the 4th (be with you). Thankfully none of our guests turned up looking like an Ewok or C3PO – though some of them looked a bit like Darth Vader at the end of Return of the Jedi by the end of the night!
This year, for whatever reason, the date that seems most popular is August 1st. Perhaps it is the way it nicely rolls off the tongue or the fact that it is the 1st day of the “hottest” month of the year. Whatever the reason is – if you are planning an event on the 1st August – please do make sure you make enquiries ASAP – i.e. now!
And even if your event isn’t planned for 1st August – every day of the year is getting more and more popular for events – so please do make enquiries as early as you can.
