We’re often asked, “What are the busiest months for weddings?” Without a doubt, April and May top the list of responses. With blossoming blooms and mild temperatures, Spring has always been a top choice for couples when selecting a time of year to get married.
So here we sit, nearing the end of April and on the cusp of May, vacant and at a complete standstill. The only venue guests are families of birds making their homes in our light fixtures and landscaping. Instead of serving cocktails to boisterous groomsmen, we’re drowning our sorrows one Kim Crawford bottle at a time.
There’s no question the nature and expectations for weddings will officially shift following Covid-19. We’re at a slight advantage because we are the first and established business offering elopement and all-inclusive wedding packages for smaller guest counts, but we know there will still be growing pains. While you’re empathic to our situation, you may be reading this and thinking there is absolutely nothing you can do to support our small business. And although we don’t like to point out when someone is absolutely and totally wrong – you are.
The spectrum varies from those who are now homeschooling three kiddos to those who are perfecting their recently discovered cross stitching hobby, but regardless, we all have a smidge of extra time on our hands. Use those hands and that excess time to do your part to help our business sustain this crisis. We’ve put together a handy little list of ways you can help us – or any small business – survive.
