The end is in sight..
With the good news from the Prime Minister on Monday 22nd February we as a business can finally start to plan for the future. It has been an incredibly difficult eleven months full of concerns, fear, doubts and anguish and then every emotion in between.
It has been equally difficult for all the couples who have booked us. Most have moved their weddings, two, three and some four times. My heart goes out to them, there are no words to describe how difficult and heart-breaking this must have been.
The 21st June 2021 is the line in the sand were we as a business and those who have booked us know where we stand. Sadly, we still have a number of bookings between April – June which fall short of that magical date. This means more heartache for those couples who will have to re-think their plans once again.
Please be assured we will do everything in our power to help those couples through this difficult time, if we aren’t available for your new date, we will find someone to help you. I can promise you this much. You are much more than a booking to us; we want the absolute best for you even if we can’t be there for your big day.
For us as a business the planning starts now. I know we have a lot of obstacles to get over between now and June and maybe that date might get moved again, but it gives us something to work toward. I have now assigned those who work alongside me their bookings, so we all know where we stand. I have a number of little jobs which can now be completed, getting the Photo Booths recovered, purchasing guest books and props plus a number of small jobs I need to complete on the DJ side of the business. All these jobs and more can now be set in motion, so once the bookings start, we are ready to go.
I cannot begin to tell you how happy this makes my OCD.
I still have three big purchases to make. I would like to extend our Dance Floor range from 16 x 16 foot to 18 x 18 foot which means we can cater for much bigger jobs as well possibly completing a couple of smaller jobs on the same date. This leads to item number two, more transport. We need another little van to help with all the work. This really is a priority given the amounts of bookings we have on the same evening. Then there is item number three, which I would like to keep quiet for now, but rest assured you’ll know more about it in the future.
