WEDDINGS STILL GOING STRONG IN A DOWN ECONOMY


According to the Perfect Wedding Guide a downturn in the economy won’t stop the bride to be! 

Even though the economy has influenced spending habits slightly, the wedding industry is strong!  Wedding experts predict a 9.5% increase in the number of weddings over the next 12 years.

However, Brides are much more price concious than ever.  The wedding gown is a perfect example of what I mean. My last 3 Brides-to-be shared with me that they looked for “bargains” when it came to major purchases such as their wedding gowns.

Although they may have wanted designer gowns, they opted for “off the rack,” or discounted gowns. One bride found the gown she wanted at a local salon and then searched online until she found it for less money and quicker delivery.  Another bride waited until a local bridal store was having a big sale, lined up outside the store until it opened and then found the “almost perfect dress.” Although she said it wasn’t her first choice, she was happy with her selection because it cost a fraction of what she would have paid 2 years ago.

And the third bride told me she looked online at eBay. She found the perfect gown customized to her size and she got it in 5 weeks time (from China). I told her my eBay story about how I too found the perfect gown from China. The shipping cost more than the dress! That was in 2007. I got the perfect gown to go with the perfect husband! 

I asked my brides why they chose Eden Florist for their wedding flowers and they each said because they had been recommended, saw my work and knew we wouldn’t overcharge them because it was a wedding.  In fact, one bride came from Palm Beach to order her flowers because she told me her florist wanted about 25% more than I did for basically the same things.
