Q. Following the last 18 months, how has the wedding industry changed? Our local suppliers, experts in their field, give us the lowdown...
A. Victoria Carson says: Obviously the effects of the pandemic had a huge impact on the millinery industry, with many milliners diversifying their businesses and returning to home studios to avoid overheads.
Since the return of weddings Victoria Charles Headpieces has seen a huge increase in orders from wedding guests. Traditionally the core business had been mother-of-the-bride and -groom and racing attendees; however, in recent months wedding guests have been opting for more dramatic hats and headpieces. This certainly seems to be a sign of the times, clients are using every opportunity to dress to impress!
During the pandemic, I also made masks which have become popular for bridesmaids and the wedding party for those that may still feel cautious even after restrictions have lifted.
