Shrinkflation in the wedding industry

We at Blueberry Hill are always trying to improve our services and add quality to our wedding package.

While many wedding venues are reducing the quality or quantity of their services/products and still maintaing or increasing their prices. This is a response to inflation and the costs of maintaining their venue.

Examples of shrinkflation at wedding venues include:

  • Reducing the number of staff, we on the other hand have added staff and will have a minimum of 3 staff members at your wedding. We have added the DJ and bartender as part of the package.
  • Substituting cheaper flowers for your bouquets. We will offer you different quotes and allow you to chose how much you want to spend.
  • Some venues have decreased the number of hours for the rental period, we still give you 2 full days so you can have a less stressful wedding weekend.
  • Other venues have decreased services, we now offer onsite housing for the wedding party and guests. We offer tables, chairs, linens, place settings and decor as part of the package as well.

It is essential to be aware of shrinkflation and carefully review contracts. Our contract is transparent and you will have listed everything to make you wedding day special.
