I think you’re experiencing what we experienced in the late fall... once we started doing events regularly everyone started booking their future events. It was pretty much all weddings at that point booking, but currently inquiries of all types are coming in. For the last two weeks I’ve been averaging about 2 inquiries a day... almost all I’m not available for.I've sent two contracts for 2022 weddings so far this week, and I have another call scheduled on Saturday. The uptick for me in inquiries could be coincidence of when planners send people my way. But I'm getting the sense that dates are being snatched aggressively right now.
I think consumer confidence is pretty high right now, and I would absolutely be advertising if I needed to be.
