Wedding Dress Delays Due To Wedding Industry Surge
According to the BBC News, couples are now facing an 8 month wait for wedding dresses to be made. Now on a normal year we expect a 9-12 month waiting list, but the difficulty we are facing is that couples want to get married sooner rather than later. In the last 2 weeks we have had an astounding number of new enquiries for months March-April. Normally wedding season doesn't tend to start until early May, so as you can imagine, there is a huge demand for everything else.
With sample dresses flying off the shelves, couples are left with no alternative but to order wedding dresses in, however with an 8 month wait, it isn't possible for everyone to do. Designers are becoming increasingly worried about what's to come in 2022, with a struggle for keeping up with demands now, it's going to get even more difficult in the next year.
Not only wedding dress designers, but wedding accessories are becoming a problem to source too. With issues Post-Brexit, items are being held up at ports which is leaving brides frustrated. With weddings falling into the winter, there is no clear break in site for the wedding industry.
We've put together some alternative ideas that can help you if you come across this problem whilst planning to marry in 2022.
