Tips for planning a 2022 wedding

A light at the end of the “COVID tunnel” is beginning to appear.

For those that planned a wedding in 2020 or 2021 ‘challenging’ can be an understatement! Now that 2022 is almost here and we are able to once again safely enjoy some activities, it is the perfect time to get your 2022 wedding plans on track.

Our team completed more than 100 weddings during the pandemic and here are our top tips for how to put that knowledge into practice and plan an amazing 2022 wedding!

Book venues and vendors IMMEDIATELY! As things open up again the best venues are booking up fast. Remember, there’s a huge ‘backlog’ of couples to accommodate, and it’s a situation that will last well into 2022 and possibly even 2023. The same goes for top wedding vendors. Unfortunately, some vendors have had to close their doors during COVID-19, so there’s an even greater demand for top wedding planners, florists, cake designers, etc.

Be flexible. If there’s one thing that COVID has taught all of us, it’s that sometimes things are simply out of our control. As a result, we’ve seen couples approach their wedding with a new level of flexibility. So when planning your 2022 wedding, it’s worth considering all your options. For example, a different location or venue or an off-peak wedding date may not be what you thought you wanted but could turn out to be absolutely perfect.

Be intentional. The pandemic has taught us all to focus on what matters, so take that lesson with you as you plan your 2022 wedding. Only include details and traditions that speak to you. Make it a personal experience for you and your guests. Focus on your priorities as a couple. It’s YOUR day, after all.

Review contracts carefully. Before you sign anything, have transparent discussions with vendors about their terms and policies, especially relating to Covid. Make sure you understand what is due and when, what is and is not refundable, and their cancellation and postponement policies. Also, ask about their safety requirements. Be sure that you get all these agreements in writing so everyone is on the same page from the start.

Create a wedding emergency fund. This is always a good idea for couples to do, but it’s especially wise for a 2022 wedding. Set aside a portion of your budget for unexpected expenses. This could be anything from stationery changes to costs around safety measures that may have to be put into place. The global economy has been significantly affected by the pandemic and prices for almost everything are increasing quickly. Supply chains have been delayed or completely broken, and some of the items that you may wish to have for your wedding may be more expensive or not readily available. We can’t know exactly what 2022 weddings will look like yet, so it’s a good idea to be on the safe side, budget-wise.
