How's YOUR Wedding Planning Going?
It's Easy to feel that you're the only one re-scheduling, changing venue or re-writing the guest list for the third time.
BUT YOU'RE NOT ALONE!
Let me share with you some facts about weddings in this soon to be Post Covid era ......
1) 65% of Couples have postponed at least once
2) 17% of couples will now get married on a FRIDAY - almost double the previous levels
3) 61% of couples planning to get married HAVE NOT YET BOOKED ANYTHING
4) 82% of Couples with a guest list of less than 15 people will have 2 celebrations.
Feeling less out of the ordinary?
The length of engagements is running at twice the length pre-covid Most (68%) re-scheduled weddings are planned for June 2021 onwards with the majority wanting to get married in 2021 rather than delaying to 2022 Around 90% of couples believe they'll be able to have unrestricted wedidngs by JUNE 21
With the pressure increasing on Venues as more and more couples book their wedding in 2021 WEEKDAY WEDDINGS are becoming increasingly common.
Engaged couples now planning their wedding are, on average, likely to find their wedding costs increased by an average of £2000

WInter and especially Christmas, is still the most popular time to get engaged - Valentines is only the 7th most popular date
