From the creators who brought you Get Hitched, Evently & the latest, soon to be launched restaurant booking platform, Bookia comes The Get Hitched Live Wedding Show! Jonathan Azzopardi Franz & Ben Vincenti are hosting a series of Facebook live discussions and chats with people in the wedding industry.
The live shows interact with various different wedding professionals including wedding planners, venues, caterers, videographers, etc. The shows deal with various issues relating to COVID-19 and its effect on the wedding industry. Our aim is to gain an insight into the different topics which could be on your mind if you’ve recently had to postpone or cancel your wedding, as well as if you’re currently planning your wedding for the near future.
Have wedding prices increased, decreased, stayed the same? What’s the deal with wedding supplier deposits? I’m sure these are only some of the questions that most of you have been asking yourselves these past few months. These topics were discussed in detail in our first live show with Chris X, one of the most sought after wedding planners locally. After his numerous years of experience in the wedding industry, Chris X was also able to share with us his recommendations to couples with wedding dates in 2020.
We also had the pleasure of speaking with Mauro Gasan, another popular wedding planner and professional in the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) industry. Mauro gave us his views regarding the consequences of COVID-19 on local and international weddings and events, as well as his anticipations for the tourism, wedding and event industry in Malta post-pandemic.
But it’s not all doom and gloom…the live shows also talk about the positive outcomes of the current situation, and how you and your partner can move forward without looking back. We love seeing couples excited to plan their wedding and we want you to have peace of mind when thinking of your future wedding date. In fact, most individuals in the wedding industry are encouraging couples with dates in 2020 to postpone their wedding to next year if possible.
There is nothing better than planning your dream wedding with confidence and without fear, and to have something to look forward to in this current world of uncertainty. For the couples out there, please feel free to use our wedding checklist to help organise your special day.
It always helps to know that you’re not alone and that unfortunately, almost everyone in the world has been affected someway or another by the consequences of COVID-19. Nevertheless, better days are coming for all of us…it’s always good to keep your head high and look forward no matter what.

Other aspects of the wedding dance that Jean Claude highlights are dance trends in weddings. Should you as a couple be going for a traditional dance or a more modern dance? What is more popular nowadays?
