Adapting To The Times

Oct 01, 2020

Adapting to the new norm at present. Indeed, this is the buzz-phrase being used in the wedding industry, among vendors and undoubtedly among venues too. For the latter, the ability to adapt quickly and the reliability of their events team when it comes to adopting, keeping abreast of and implementing the necessary social distancing protocols are all factors that a couple will take into account when deciding on where to host their wedding celebrations.

For soon-to-be-wed couples, all is certainly not lost in relation to planning for a wedding celebration that is unique and memorable. The aspirations and inspiration have not changed, all that is required is some re-working of the traditional concepts that we have all grown accustomed to. And an experienced and enthusiastic events team at the venue will very much be able to drive such an initiative.

Some suggestions :

  • Keep an open mind and be receptive to new ideas and proposals.
  • Choose the venue within the hotel that best fits the size of your guest list and wedding theme.
  • Have your appointed wedding vendors brainstorm with the hotel’s events team as well.
