NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Aside from your friends calling you unoriginal and millions of other couples sharing your engagement date, there's a price to be paid for a Valentine's Day proposal.If you're considering popping the question Valentine's Day, the fact that you're far from the only one doing so only increases the premium you'll pay for your romanticism. According to the Conde Nast American Wedding Study, February accounts for 8% of all engagements. Rebecca Dolgin, executive editor of engagement and wedding site TheKnot (KNOT), notes that while August vacations make that month the most popular for proposals, February comes in a close second during the Thanksgiving-through-Valentine's Day period her site considers engagement season.
