Engagement Season Arrives!

It wasn’t too long ago that a few friends and I, taking advantage of the “slow” season in Asheville, enjoyed an afternoon hike up to Craggy Gardens. It’s truly one of the most beautiful, and accessible, areas on the Parkway. Just at the top, overlooking the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, we spotted the silhouette of a young man down on one knee. It was a magical moment to witness. The woman, visually excited, jumped twice and then fell into his arms. We can’t be sure, but we think she said yes 🙂

We realized later that while the “slow” season might be a great time to visit Asheville to beat the crowds, this time of year is a “season” all it’s own. This my friends, is called engagement season.

Did you know that the top 4 days to get engaged are during the winter months? Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and Valentine’s Day overwhelmingly top the chart for popping the big question. And while “engagement season” may not require reservations, what comes next certainly has a waiting list.

Last year alone, Asheville hosted over 2,200 couples as they exchanged their “I do’s.” That’s 2,200 venues booked, weekends booked and of course, wedding transportation booked. To make sure you get the perfect vendors, venues and vehicles for your perfect day, we always recommend contacting in advance.

Our professional wedding chauffeurs provide unparalleled customer service and timeliness. We offer private getaway cars, small group transportation to and from your venue, and private tours and travel for bachelor and bachelorette parties.
