Covid-19 has changed everything from shelter-in, store closures and unfortunately those businesses who are locked up permanently. Its not just the stores it includes the manufacturers and the raw goods material suppliers. Taking this in account, that is why it is important to plan out well ahead what everyone is going to wear.
Weddings in many cases are opting to buy instead of renting as the garments will be owned by those in the Wedding and can be used in the future. Buying is preferrred instead of renting and this is the reason. Owning is not much different than renting.
The next step is getting everyone in your Wedding Party to get measured early, not later! Time is of the essence to insure you get what you want. You want to make sure everyone in your Bridal Party can be fit and the sizes are available. This is part of the process.
Talk with your Wedding Party and make sure their weight isn’t going to change. If there is a significant weight change and that is not communicated early, the different size garment may not be available.
If another garment has to be ordered that adds additional cost that could be avoided! It is important that your Wedding Party stays in contact and let you know if there are changes in weight which will affect the fit of the garment.
