Smaller Gatherings at Weddings During Covid-19

There is an enormous impact on the wedding industry at the moment and the services associated (florists for example), as the spread of Coronavirus infection increases when large groups of people gather at social events and weddings not just in Dubai and the UAE but also around the world. Another factor is travel restrictions. The wedding season usually reaches it’s highest busiest point from October to April because the bride, groom and guests prefer cooler weather offered at these times. Newly weds-to-be have cancelled or suspended their wedding plans including their honeymoon. Health officials wait to test passengers who arrive at International airports. During the summer we would usually be immersed in flowers but this is not currently the case for any florist anywhere.

Smaller Groups & Social Distancing at Weddings

A wedding means many people coming together to celebrate. Friends, family and colleagues normally locally, nationally or internationally. There is dancing, social mingling, hugs and kisses aplenty so weddings will continue to be under the spotlight for the time being. It’s a tough decision to cancel or move a wedding day and many have had to do so. Weddings with restrictions are now going ahead and there are those who are also choosing a virtual wedding where the bride, groom and guests gather online.

But for those prefering not to go dowen the online route, there are still guests who are still shielding who won’t be able to make it, and this is just one reason why weddings are being rescheduled.

What Does This All Mean for Flowers?

Well, we are in unprecedented and unpredictable times and florist retail stores are still affected by a lack of shoppers who remain cautious for now. Weddings involving a smaller number of guests are currently going ahead but decisions on who to bridal bouquet light coloured rosesinvite and who to exclude from the guest list won’t be very easy.

Couples can plan years in advance so it’s a very emotional time for them. Wedding flowers will be ordered and floral wishes will be granted.

You don’t necessarily have to choose fewer flowers just because it’s a smaller wedding.

Yes it’s important for you to stick to your budget if you have set one, but more flowers and for example a floral arch can dress the ceremony space and the original space to create a beautiful intimate setting and atmosphere for guests, bride and groom.

The Cost of a Wedding

Today the average cost of a wedding in Dubai ranges from Dh300,000 to Dh500,000and many couples are waiting to see what happens before they reschedule. Many who had plans to marry in Europe have chosen to have their weddings in the UAE.
