It seems with the amount of visitors to London that they would make a huge amount of money over the royal wedding weekend. While they probably did make an amazing amount in sales, the cost of handling 600,000+ visitors is likely to up leave a deficit rather than an increase in profit according to this video by CBS.
What does that mean to wedding vendors around the globe? Looking to the future perhaps wedding businesses should worry less about the events to piggyback off of and instead focus on the ongoing growth of their businesses. It can be easy to get caught up in the hype, and when it comes to business it is better to keep level headed. Use what trends you can, but remember your business is going to be around long after the event is over.
