Desperate couples make preparations, 25% more marriages due to postponement of marriage two to three times.
We were to be married in New York in September 2020. But due to restrictions, we did the formalities in the presence of 13 guests instead of 200 and decided that the celebrations will take place in 2021. This story is not about the pot couple alone. Last year in the US, more than 1 million wedding events were either postponed, canceled or couples decided to hold the reception in 2021 by doing legal formalities.
Wedding site The Knot quoted IBIS World Report as saying that these events will be held this year. Because a large number of couples paid extra money to have a wedding planner and place reserve. The wedding industry is also excited about this as it has lost 34% of its revenue.
Lauren of Not Worldwide states that 47% of postponed weddings in the US last year (around 5 lakh) will take place from July to October this year. Due to this, the number of marriages will increase from 20% to 25% in 2021 and 2022. In this way, it can be the biggest year for marriage. Vaccines are easily available in America. More than 61% of adults have had their first dose of vaccine.
The CDC has given permission to hold the event without wearing a mask. In such a situation, due to the postponement of the event again and again, new hope has arisen for the desperate couples. Landis Bejar, the head of the marriage advice company, says that many of his clients’ marriage has been postponed two or three times. Now the couple is ready that even if fewer guests have to organize, they will not postpone. Because they have spent a lot in planning again and again.
Not only this, they are also questioning the guests about getting the vaccines done during the invitation. Tamara and Matthew of Asheville are set to wed in August. He has clearly written in the invitation that all adults should come only after getting vaccinated. According to wedding planners, vaccination status is being shared with the wedding dress on social media.
However, there is also concern among people whether they will be able to sit and eat with a stranger. Children accompanying them would not have been vaccinated. But young couples say that it is not possible to bear the expenses of re-organizing if conditions change. Good if the guests come, even if they do not come this time, there will be weddings.
