Couples in the U.S. are racing to the altar in a vaccination-era wedding boom that has venues and other vendors in high demand.

With restrictions on large gatherings loosening, wedding planners and others who make the magic happen said they’ve started pushing their bookings into late 2022 and early 2023. Also contributing to the rush are couples who went ahead and got hitched during stricter pandemic times with few or no guests and are now on their second go-arounds with larger groups. They’re competing for services with those who had always intended to marry this year. Today on AirTalk, we discuss the implications for those who work in the wedding industry and are trying to keep up. We want to hear from you? Do you service events and weddings in some capacity? Florist? Photographer? Caterer? Call us and tell us how you’re being impacted. Also, if you’re planning to get married, is the demand having any impact on your big day? Tell us your experience by calling 866-893-5722.
