The Boxing Day debate

Every year on Boxing Day our online directory receives more hits than on any other day of the year. Several factors converge on the same day; Christmas proposals, spare time after the rush of Christmas for wedding planning, a new smart phone or iPad with easy internet access needing to be tested, or our favourite; the mother-in-law-to-be asking over Christmas dinner just how far you are with the wedding plans.

Surprisingly, despite most wedding businesses monitoring their emails for new enquiries throughout the Christmas break, most couples wait until after the New Year before joining the jostle of brides and grooms, all trying to secure the best suppliers during January.

So where are the GfB staff while this flurry of Boxing Day activity is burning a hole in our server? We are at home with our families. The benefits of modern technology.
