COVID 19 Wedding Planning – Wedding Suits Still to be Chosen
A recent Hitched study showed 71% of couples are postponing their wedding due to COVID-19, with 90% of those planning to reschedule to 2021. Increasingly we are seeing weddings move not just to 2021 but to 2022 and even 2023. This will make the next 2-3 years very busy so it’s crucial that you secure the wedding suppliers you want. Most suppliers are small family business, and like us have a limit on their capacity so, our advice is to get things booked!
