It’s much the same at Point D’vine South of Quincy, owner Rita Speckheart said their event venue has been home to a lot of smaller events, but for many that wouldn’t work. “But the rent still has to be paid utilities still have to be paid, so it’s been pretty rough going,” said Blickhan. “Going down to 25 and at the beginning to 10 just wasn’t an option we did have a few that did that but for the most part, no. They postponed and obviously this year would be better,” said Speckheart.
“We’ve had with everything shutting down last year. If there was any wedding business or anybody who was doing something outside where big brother was watching, they either didn’t rent anything or they cut back,” said Blickhan. Even though she might get to use it for some bigger events starting again soon there are still some concerns for the future.
She said while business has trickled in more recently, a lot of her décor has been sitting on shelves, as it’s nothing like the big weddings she did before the pandemic. Sandy Blickhan, the owner at Something Borrowed, which rents décor for weddings, said she’s used a lot less of their event décor over the past year.
“I would love to have that problem. But yeah, that is a fear because you just don’t you only have so many things,” said Blickhan. She just hopes people are as eager as she is to have big events again soon. Blickhan said while it would be great if things bounced back in a big way, it might be hard to keep up.
“And in the fall, especially October, we have double bookings, the whole entire month because we probably have last year’s, and fortunately we’re able to do some people that wanted to wedding this year,” said Speckheart. She said she’s hopeful though, with a second venue now open, even though they missed out on events in 2020, many people have rescheduled.
