If COVID-19 has delayed or in other ways altered your wedding plans, you are far from alone. This pandemic is impacting couples and wedding vendors alike. Consider some of the following statistics from 2019 that show how many may be affected in California alone.
- There were 247.413 weddings in California – That means nearly half a million people tied the knot in the state last year. We can only imagine how many people have had to change their plans in just the couple of months that we have been dealing with this situation.
- The average cost of a California wedding in 2019 was $30,153 – Most of that money goes to venues, entertainers, caterers, photographers, and other wedding vendors. You can imagine how these businesses are struggling without the roughly $7.5 billion in revenue that weddings create in the state each year.
Both couples and vendors who rely on regular income have been devastated by this pandemic. However, we know that this situation is temporary, and many couples are rescheduling for the months ahead. Plus, some couples and vendors have gotten creative with ways to go ahead in a manner that ties people in remotely and allows for proper social distancing.
