Wishing you a Happy New Year!!
We know for some of you that 2019 is a very special year. It is the year you are getting married! As such you will always remember this year as a special time. For many of you, January will be a starting point for the big push to get all your arrangements finalised for your wedding. Hopefully, you will have the church and the hotel booked but other things need to be organised. This is the time to do it.
At Odyssey, we have already seen the dramatic increase in inquiries since January 1st. While we can accommodate most brides, we will always have some that have left booking too late and the wedding car they want and in some cases, every car, have gone. The same is true for our photographers and videographers. There are only so many professional wedding photographers and videographers in the industry, and fewer every year.
Advice for 2019 Weddings
Odyssey started in the wedding service industry in 2005. We have driven over 2,000 brides and photographed and videoed hundreds of weddings. Our advice is to ignore your wedding planner and the wedding magazines who tell you that 3 months is plenty of time to allow to book your dream car. They also advise 6 months for the photographer or videographer. Just so you are aware, we started taking 2020 wedding bookings for cars, videos, and photos back in early 2018. Many brides book 2 years in advance so as not to lose out! And they don’t!
We are not writing this to make you panic and book before you are ready! It is just so you will have a realistic idea of when you should be booking. We are working in this industry every day while for most of yourselves this will be a once off occasion. We just want to help you learn from our experience. For 2019 weddings in most cases you should already have booked.
Anyway, we wish you all the best for your big day and if we can help make it that little bit more special we will. You can contact us using our Contact Form or call us at 086 055 2660.
