The Impact of Coronavirus on the Wedding Industry

Weddings During the Pandemic

“We are gathered here today” signals the start of a wedding, when friends and loved ones from distant places come together to eat, drink, dance and celebrate love. But now “we are gathered here today” is totally illegal because of a global pandemic. This event is one of the most important days of a person’s life. Sometimes they plan for years to have the perfect day. Now, heartbroken brides and grooms are canceling florists, caterers, venues, musicians and officiants as they wait for a day they can be around people again. People in the business of weddings are at a full stop, wondering when they will be back in business. Katherine Imundi is a wedding officiant and owner of Getting Married in Florida. She chats with Bold TV about this abrupt change in business and how people are adapting. 

How Global Pandemics Affect Weddings

The pandemic created a new type of wedding: a Zoom ceremony. Some people adapted with the times by having all their guests view them tie the knot on a computer screen. However, some people didn’t want to give up their dream day and decided to postpone their date. Some people moved their Disney destination weddings to an entire year later. While this decision is disappointing for the lovebirds, it creates challenges for the industry. Once the world opens back up, there will be a boom in weddings, putting pressure on venues and vendors. These businesses run on schedules planned far in advance, but their planners are now in chaos. 

Adapting to Mass Wedding Cancellations

Like other entrepreneurs, people in the wedding business are struggling to change with the tides. Some officiants are offering Zoom ceremonies and adding vow renewal ceremonies. If you had been planning a wedding and your date is no longer possible, what can you do? Contact your vendors, venues, photographers, etc. and let them know if you’re canceling or just postponing. Like all of us, they are taking this pandemic and its changes as they come.
