Starting The Year Off Right

Gone are the days of not knowing if you can throw your event or wedding without the fear of cancellation.

To kick the year off, Bongo & B was happy to be part of Canada’s Bridal Show earlier this month and received great feedback from attendees as well as fellow exhibitors. We truly missed the in person aspect that was missing from the last few years as there is nothing greater than seeing the look of excitement in a potential clients eyes. The Metro Toronto Convention Centre was absolutely booming with positive vibes and wonderful couples looking to add excitement to their special day. One thing that we also noticed while speaking with different couples is that the wedding industry has truly changed since before the pandemic.

More and more people are planning weddings differently than they used to. The cost of inflation has created a rise in cost in most businesses, and the wedding industry is no different. Many are opting for more intimate venues, smaller guest lists and even planning backyard weddings. However, although couples are budgeting differently, the wedding business is booming bigger than ever. Many couples have been patiently waiting for things to calm down to begin planning again. This has created a backlog that is unprecedented in our industry. Entertainment has also seen a boom, as audiences have truly missed the energy that a live performance brings to an event. The best advice we can give anyone is to begin planning well in advance as many have started booking their live entertainment very early to avoid disappointment.
