Michigan Bridal Industry Looking Forward to Wedding Season
It's been a tough year for most bridal companies due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many weddings were postponed and several local wedding companies lost revenue. Most are hoping to get the wedding season back on track very soon.
According to the Lansing State Journal:
"For the year that everything was shut down, we lost a good amount of revenue because the reality is, we felt it was necessary to completely reschedule the weddings so that people could have the day that they dreamed of," said Daryl Evans, owner of Pure Enchantment Photography.
Since all of this has happened most recently, there are some businesses that did reopen just so they could make ends meet and are willing to go the extra mile to keep things moving in a positive direction.
Lansing State Journal tells us:
In the immediate aftermath of last year's shutdown, most local bridal shops temporarily shut their doors, experiencing a sharp decline in revenue. Some declined to reopen when restrictions loosened in late May. Hawkins Photography and Haltam Jewelers in the Meridian Mall closed for good.
Some of the local bridal shops were able to keep things moving with curbside pickup. With things being shutdown due to COVID-19, bridal companies had to come up with safe ways to provide brides and wedding parties with whatever they needed.
The wedding season is upon us and there is still work to do to eventually get things back to normal. Couples will write their wedding vows and put in all the hard work just to have a special day they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
