Did you know that 40% of couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day? It’s no wonder that we often get a ton of tours at this time of year! The holidays are a beautiful time for couples to get engaged as they are typically in a festive mood and around friends and family to celebrate with.
One of my favorite parts of meeting new couples is hearing the proposal story- when they got engaged, how surprised she was, and how they made it personal and special. I’ve heard everything from heartfelt and private proposals involving pets or sentimental mementos to an underwater proposal, a proposal on The Great Wall of China, and proposals right here at Mercantile Hall (we had another one just last week!). It’s so fun to watch the couples’ faces light up and watch them laugh together while they tell the story and share pictures with us.
As we head into engagement season, we are so excited for all of the amazing couples who will be getting engaged and coming in to check out our space. We are here for you and can’t wait to watch your love grow here at Mercantile Hall!
We wish our Merc Hall community a beautiful and safe Thanksgiving- we hope it is full of good food and great friends and family.
Can’t wait to see you all soon this holiday season!
