2020 has been an unprecedented year for the UK wedding industry. With weddings being cancelled and rearranged since March 23rd, we have worked with clients who’ve had their COVID wedding plans change many times over.
What have we learnt?
With so much to arrange from venues, jewellery, flowers, cakes, bridesmaid dresses, photographers, stationery, and groom attire, each professional involved needs to have time to do their job. For instance, it can take 12 months minimum to arrange the venue, 3 months to have the jeweller source the perfect stone and the photographer can be booked well in advance too.
So, with this in mind, we can only work with the information that is available to us. If you have a wedding planned for 2021 or beyond, do not sit back and await further direction from the Government. By doing so, this will leave you unable to have the preferred suppliers you wanted in the first place. Remember, if you ask a wedding photographer to come along in a week – and they agree – BEWARE! Any professional who is good will be booked up well in advance.
From a tailoring point of view, designing and making a grooms suit takes time, effort and energy both from the grooms side and the tailors. We work as a team to ensure that we get the perfect fabric, design and fit for each and every client.
Throughout March, April, May and June, cloth mills around the world closed their doors and we were facing challenges like every other industry associated with COVID weddings.
Time is critical and should be used affectively to ensure it is not wasted.
Indeed, for those getting married in 2021, it’s important to get things under way sooner rather than later.
