The challenges of shopping for a dress can bring on an enormous amount of stress, but add a pandemic to it and you have chaos.
How can you deal with the state of affairs we are currently dealing with? How can today’s brides plan a wedding during this crisis with such uncertainties?
The Bridal Industry makes up more than just a pretty dress or expensive dresses that a woman may only wear for one day. Please keep in mind that this is an industry that prides itself on creating a “red carpet moment” for the everyday woman that she has been dreaming of all her life. At least for some women.
A woman is not simply just buying a dress, she is living her “best life” and sharing it with people she loves and for the love of her life. She will have these memories for a lifetime.
The bridal market was hit hard and it causes a major shift not only for you our brides but the industry people that work so hard to ensure you have a magnificent event.
Among the greats, such as Mark Ingram founder and owner of Mark Ingram Bridal Atelier, and how COVID-19 has not only devasted New York but has put a damper on so many dreams of happiness for so many families.
But he is hopeful and sees a brighter side to this… check out our video conversation below:
As various businesses make plans to re-open Mark Ingram Atelier is prepping to make each bride’s wedding shopping experience as stress-free as possible. After having to assist over 100 brides during these unprecedented times, he and his team have been working hard to prepare for the new age of bridal appointments.
The atelier currently operates strictly virtually to service their existing clients, and by email, as they await the time when they can open their doors to the public which will be by appointment only to ensure the safety of the bride, her family, and their staff.
While the future may not be clear for many of us. One thing you, our brides can be certain of is the wedding industry is making preparation to help you through this process.
