Weddings are among those celebrations that provide event planners the most revenue. A lavish party with kisses and hugs. Family fraternities in a champagne frenzy, sweaty suits in the dance floor frenzy. Many couples imagine their wedding parties like this or something like that. But that seems unthinkable in the Corona crisis. Instead: wear masks, keep your distance, keep to yourself.
How COVID-19 will affect your 2021 wedding
Wedding planners understand when someone says that they don’t want to celebrate under such circumstances. And there are so many reasons for this reluctance to celebrate. This is a real problem for many wedding planners and other event planners for that matter. It had been a catastrophic 2020 and it’s not about to change in 2021.
80 percent of the weddings were canceled. Either because couples celebrated and canceled in a small circle or because they postponed. And in 2021? Doesn’t it look much better? Wedding planners are, at the moment, not planning at all. Many have canceled and the list gets getting shorter and shorter. There’s too much uncertainty.
Weddings more varied and spontaneous
Editor-in-chief of “Bride & Groom” said otherwise. Even if there’s great uncertainty, people will still get married – and also celebrate. But certainly not within the usual framework. “Weddings will be more diverse and spontaneous in 2021, that doesn’t have to be a bad thing.
If you really want to celebrate big, you should wait another year. 2022 could be a better year for weddings. In principle, it is already possible to make reservations for 2022, or at least to speak to restaurateurs and service providers. It is always best to simply stay in contact with the desired location and the various service providers. They also have no planning security and have to constantly adapt to the changing situation.
Wedding planning like package tours
Stay flexible and keep in touch. This applies not only to 2022 but also to wedding couples who are actually planning or have planned a wedding for 2021. For example, because they actually wanted to celebrate big in 2020. Getting married in 2021 is basically like traveling. If you want to plan that now, you should make sure you plan as quickly and flexibly as possible.
It is more difficult at a wedding. But it is possible, now more than ever. In other sectors such as the services in towing company San Jose, there are currently companies that are introducing very flexible regulations in response to consumer reluctance. And the wedding industry is certainly ready to talk.
If possible, no expensive down payments
Bridal couples and their business partners should write down agreements on reservations and their cancellation. And as always, read the small print, i.e. the terms and conditions, carefully – especially on the points of cancellation and rebooking.
