If you are planning a wedding this year, it could be challenging. With high demand coming from a global pandemic, brides have limited options for everything from wedding dates to food to venues; it’s a true “wedding boom,” according to Brides.

After more than a year of postponed and called-off weddings, the industry has seen an influx of weddings coming back as the world opens up again. As a result, the demand for every aspect of the industry is higher than ever.

Tips for planning a wedding in 2022

Make decisions quickly – With everything from dresses to venues to flowers to food in high demand, be ready to make quick decisions. No one wants to rush these things, but it could prove worse to miss out on the best opportunities. If it seems like it will be a good fit, jump on it.

Prepare for inflated costs – Prices are high with the after-covid boom, so prepare to be open and flexible with vendors as they help you work within your vision and budget.

Hire a wedding planner – Even if it wasn’t in your original plan, now is the time to hire a wedding planner. They have all the insider information, and an experienced wedding planner could be the key to the day of your dreams, even in a very different climate.

Be flexible with dates – Finding a date could be the most challenging part of wedding planning. Be flexible and think outside the box with off-Saturday dates, offseason, and non-traditional event times. You’ll have more options to choose from, plus you could end up saving a bundle.

Consider your guests — Get your save-the-dates out as soon as possible, giving your guests plenty of time to navigate what is likely an extra busy wedding season.

Planning a wedding this year requires patience and flexibility like never before. No matter how challenging planning a wedding in 2022 can be, staying focused and making quick, sound decisions will be the biggest factor in pulling off your big day.
