Phew, what a year it has been. For many of our couples, it's been a real headache. Rescheduling is not a task anyone wants to undergo. Booking all the right vendors and sending out all those RSVP's is like a full time job.
Again, it's been a wild year. That's why I decided to write this short post on my predictions and suggestions for 2021.
Book a Year in Advance
Most couples book vendors a year in advance. Now, you're probably thinking, "what if we suffer another pandemic?"
I can't speak for everyone, but over the past 6 months I have personally witnessed vendors working graciously with clients over cancelations or rescheduling. If you reschedule your wedding with us and we have an open spot, your deposit will be honored. You're not going to lose a dime when you book and decide to keep us on board. We're willing to do what it takes to shoot your wedding film.
I recently shot a wedding that consisted of just ten people total...all wearing masks. I know it isn't ideal, but we made it work. We also were able to do it with only a deposit budget. Discuss with your vendors what their booking policy requires before you sign a contract.
2021 is Going to a Wedding Bonanza
In 2020 we personally saw a few cancelations/reschedules. (One of which will be taking place next Spring instead of this past June.)
That said, you need to anticipate that wedding vendors are going to get booked up really fast. If you're looking for more popular wedding vendors, it's going to get really difficult to snag them. My suggestion, book early.
We're hoping that COVID19 will soon come to an end. That's our prayer. So far, with the rate that things are opening up, 2021 is looking to be a ripe year for the wedding industry. We want you as much as you want us. Please reach out early!
