DOTHAN, Al. (WTVY) -- We're officially in "proposal season."
You're likely to see social media feeds light up with ring selfies and engagement photos in the coming months. Between now and February, nearly 40% of annual engagements are set to take place.
That's approximately 700,000 couples, spending an estimated $4.4 billion on engagement rings. The average price of an engagement ring is about $6,300 according to The Knot, a wedding website.
The average time spent planning a proposal is four and a half months.
According to The Knot, this year's proposal trends include destination proposals in exotic places, using a furry friend in the proposal and getting permission from family members before popping the question.
