“Weddings are, without a doubt, back to pre-pandemic levels,” – Hannah Nowack, Real Weddings editor at The Knot.

If the projections come true, there will be about 2.5 million marriages in 2022,the highest number since 1984, yet planning for one has never been more challenging. This is what couples can expect.

Every wedding canceled in the past few years has found a happy ending, and that happy ending is…2022.

It is anticipated that approximately 2.5 million weddings will occur this year, the largest number since 1984, according to the Knot, a trade group thatgathered its data through a survey of vendors and consumers.

Most of the celebrations planned for 2022 are carried over by two years. The remainder are likely to be dominated by couples that got engaged during thepandemic.  Nonetheless, these peaks in demand collide with over-booked dates, site availability, and labor shortages.

That,on the other hand, is very good news. With strategic arrangements, this could give you the benefit of working more events and weddings. Couples that havebeen turned away may now become potential clients.

The Love Scramble: What is Happening?

Normalcy is back and with it, the event industry expects record-breaking demand. Currently,the rush to buy is far more widespread, which in turn causes many orders, delays,and other derived issues.Wedding planners and venue owners struggle to replenish their inventory at thevery last moment. This last minute is detrimental and can influence a client’s decision.

The Chaos Coordinator: Creating Opportunities

What are we talking about in terms of creating opportunities for chaos coordinators? This is the gold rush of the wedding and event industry as 2022 is projected tobe the greatest marriage boom since 1984. Since the pandemic, most couples have delayed their celebrations, or weddings droughts. Now, couples are as eager asever to have a great time on their big day.

What our EXHIBITORS say...


Russell Ross - Encanta Video

"The reason we attend the Bridal Extravaganza is that there are usually at least 3,000 brides. If they are not all getting married, they have friends and family who are having birthday parties, church events, recitals, and lectures that need to be recorded. It is difficult and costly to get this targeted of an audience via Facebook, Google, or any other method of communication."


Stephen Daulong - Daulong's Mobile Music Inc.

Every single show I meet brides who become clients. Recently, as the economy and industry have changed, participating in the Bridal Extravaganza has become an even more valuable way to connect with brides.

When I started reading about "Bridal Extravaganza" I came to the conclusion that this bridal show was one of the best ones in the United States... It turned out it is. It's been 3 weeks and I already booked more than 5 weddings and have more just waiting for final details. Thanks for the opportunity and for putting all this together for vendors and clients!!
