Rhode Island Television Station WJAR (CH10) interviewed some local wedding vendors to discuss the state of the industry in the face of the global coronavirus pandemic. You can view the complete interview here.
The global wedding industry brings in about $74 billion annually, and Rhode Island’s share is just under $200 million. It’s one of the top ten wedding destinations in the US according to Erica Trombetti, owner of Infinite Events.
The interview shows some insight as to what it’s like to be a small company that relies completely on one industry, and what happens when that industry is upended by some unprecedented and unforeseeable event.
