With smaller guest lists, cancelled wedding showers and even postponed weddings, Crate & Barrel found that 95% of COVID-era couples say it’s more difficult to complete their registries. Crate & Barrel will change that for 10 lucky couples
CHICAGO, Feb. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — While wedding showers and ceremonies continue to go virtual or to a smaller scale, couples across the country are still registering at Crate & Barrel. However, according to a recent Crate & Barrel survey, four out of five recently engaged or married couples say that the pandemic had a somewhat or significant impact on their wedding plans. The survey also confirmed that 59% of couples have decreased their wedding guest lists, 52% have delayed or postponed their wedding, and 38% have canceled pre-wedding activities. All of this has resulted in significant portions of couples’ registry wish lists remaining unfulfilled but, Crate and Barrel is here to help.
