    “Suppliers in the wedding industry have had to increase their rates because they are also paying more for goods and services like food, flowers and labor,” Forrest said. Year after year, inflation is reflected in the costs involved in this type of party even outbidding goods and services.

    The pandemic served as a pause, despite the fact that many companies that benefit from these celebrations closed due to lack of profit, such as; the manufacture of wedding dresses, the truth is that for this summer, weddings are taking a boom that takes the market by surprise.
