COLORADO SPRINGS – Around this time last year, many couples were forced to put their wedding anniversary plans on hold.
Whether their day was canceled, postponed, or had few guests, couples had to rearrange something to make it work.
“We just thought it was the right choice to wait so we could have the event we wanted. We’ve been together for four years. If we do the wedding, we can do it as well as we imagined “said Dylan Craddock, future bride.
As for the venues, they could only support their clients.
“It was an emotional roller coaster ride that I would never have been prepared for. It was devastating to make these calls to the brides and say I was so sorry,” said Sarah Gregor, event coordinator at Almagre.
A year fast forward, with a full vaccine roll-out and a decreasing positivity rate, many couples are now ready to say, “I know.”
“We now have brides who contact us all the time,” said Gregor.
While it has been an ups and downs for the events industry, Gregor says her calendar is slowly filling up.
“You (clients) are jumping in as soon as possible for May, June so they can get a date.”
In addition, says Gregor, they are completely booked out in July!
A rewarding experience, says Gregor.
“It’s pretty fulfilling to see her come through the process at the other end.”
