Fortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic is winding down. Many adults and teens have been vaccinated. Now engaged couples are racing to the altar in a post vaccination-era wedding boom which has venues near Washington D.C. and other vendors in high demand.
Post-pandemic bookings are already being pushed into 2023
A recent Associated Press article said, “With restrictions on large gatherings loosening, wedding planners and others who make the magic happen say they’ve started pushing their bookings into late 2022 and early 2023.”
A person in the catering business was quoted as saying, “Our phones have been ringing off the hook with clients looking to have the weddings they had to put off during COVID.” Now demand is so high many venues are turning couples away.
As a matter of fact, 6 Pastures Farm in picturesque Winchester, Virginia, near Washington, D.C., is booked through the end of 2021 and for nearly every weekend of 2022 and briskly booking 2023 events. So, now’s the time to book these beautiful surroundings for your 2023 wedding. Choosing early assures you of securing the date and venue of your choosing, rather than settling.
Couples also planning for larger gatherings now
Brides and grooms who opted for just a few or no guests during pandemic times, are now planning larger wedding groups. They’re competing with those who were holding off or had already planned to marry in 2023 putting a squeeze on choices.
Early planning can save money, too
A number of wedding venues and vendors are raising prices to meet the pent-up demand increases. That means booking now can also save you money by locking in the cost.
Give yourself more time to plan
Instead of rushing to plan your event, take your time and savor the details. When it comes to wedding planning and organizing, getting there is more than half the fun. Don’t settle for a less than picture-perfect venue. Choose the location which best suits both of you and your guests – then relax.
