The trend: 2022 is likely to be a record-breaking year for weddings, as couples who postponed their nuptials due to the pandemic are ready to tie the knot.
More on this: As many as 2.6 million weddings are expected to take place this year, up 18.2% from 2.2 million in 2019, prior to the pandemic, per The Knot.
Eyeing an opportunity: The wedding boom should provide a strong tailwind for retailers that are attuned to consumers’ desire for shopping experiences in line with their unique needs.
The big takeaway: After two years in which a large share of weddings were canceled, pushed back, or scaled down, wedding-related retailers are eager for the return of pre-pandemic-style celebrations.
