According to The Wedding Report site, an estimated 2.6 million weddings are taking place in 2022. With COVID forcing postponements over the past two years, many have chosen 2022 as the year to finally tie the knot. What does this mean for you? It means that vendors are booking up faster than ever. If you're a 2022 bride, here are things to consider when planning your wedding.
Order Your Attire Sooner Rather Than Later
With such a significant increase in weddings, there are no shortages of brides looking to buy wedding attire for their bridal party. When searching for the perfect bridesmaids' dresses or your dream wedding dress, it's best to place your order sooner rather than later to account for the delays in production time. With COVID, production issues have already posed a significant problem in supply chains, and retail is no exception.
Take time now to sit down and decide on the style, color, and fabric you want for your bridesmaids. 2022 is the year to be decisive and forward with your choices for wedding planning. Stay ahead of the game and order your wedding party’s attire as soon as possible.
Book Your Venues ASAP
As a 2022 bride, booking your wedding venues should be on top of your to-do list. With weddings in high demand, securing a venue is one of the most critical puzzle pieces for your wedding. Venue bookings are flying left and right, and you must start booking your tours to find your dream spot to tie the knot.
Expect To Adjust Your Budget
It's no secret that inflation has increased wedding costs. You may find yourself (reluctantly) mulling over your wedding budget and adjusting numbers to accommodate the shift in prices. Expect to either spend more money or become a DIY bride to save on pricey wedding décor
You may find that it's more cost-effective to elope or have an intimate destination wedding with a few guests. Whatever you decide, keep in mind that this year has not been kind to the budgets of many 2022 couples.
Planning your wedding may feel a little more hectic as a 2022 bride, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't embrace this huge life event. While there are many things to consider when planning a wedding in 2022, always focus on what will make you happy on your special day.
