Wedding planning can be extremely stressful, this year couples have an added pressure…..The coronavirus lock down has resulted in lots of weddings being postponed. Many of these couples have chosen to put their wedding back to 2021 to remove any concerns that the wedding may need to be postponed again. Meanwhile others have moved their spring weddings to winter at the end of this year.
It is essential that you book your wedding suppliers as quickly as possible. As wedding venue decorators we often find our diaries fill up quickly. However, with all weddings being cancelled for the next few months it means that would-be 2020 brides are now competing with 2021 brides and their bookings. Some 2022 brides are noticing the affects too as we are taking bookings for 2022 too.
In previous years you may only need to start booking wedding suppliers a year in advance. You’d get engaged and take it slowly, shopping around at different suppliers and finding the right services for you. However, if you are looking to marry towards the end of this year, 2021 or even 2022 – we highly recommend you start booking now.
For wedding cake suppliers and wedding dress shops, for example – they are able to take more than one booking per day. You may find that a magician can put more than one booking in the diary per day, the same for singing waiters and celebrants.
However when it comes to wedding venue dressing and the venue itself, they can usually only have the one booking per day. While we are lucky to have more than one flower wall, multiple blossom trees and chair covers, for example, there are some things we only have one of. If you want to make sure you get your dream wedding decor then you need to get it booked now.
Time is on your side for DIY and making your own bits and pieces. You have the extra time at home and you can make the most of this free time. However, when it comes to booking wedding suppliers, you need to get your bookings in now to avoid disappointment.
Wedding planning should be an exciting time. By getting the essential wedding suppliers booked you can enjoy the countdown to the wedding in a calm and stress-free way.
And remember; if you have had to postpone your wedding, you have a year longer to add any extra little bits and to make it a truly memorable and special day.
