Impact of Covid-19 on Business Suppliers In The Wedding Industry



Suppliers are classified as “businesses” and it can often feel unfair with the balance of power in favour of the consumer.


However all is not lost and with the right advice and guidance many businesses in the industry can survive and when we get through this pandemic it’s almost inevitable we will see a significant increase in the number of weddings which may have been lost or put on hold during 2020.

Suppliers in the industry range from venues, wedding planners, caterers, photographers, bands, hairdressers and make-up artists. Usually these will be small owner managed businesses that need guidance and assistance with the myriad of different bits of legislation governing the relationship with the couples.

Flexibility is clearly the key and there is no reason why existing contracts cannot be varied to allow the wedding to take place on another date. For those suppliers that have already supplied in part their services (preferably demonstrated with clear evidence) there is an entitlement to a fee in the event of a cancellation or postponement.

This is the time for suppliers to revisit existing contracts to make sure terms and conditions are current, fit for purpose and can deal with unexpected events such as Covid-19. Changes in phraseology may be necessary so instead of taking deposits, anything paid prior to the wedding may be regarded as an administration & contract fee.
