Planning a wedding during this lockdown can be quite stressful because of the way things are. Almost nothing is normal anymore so planning a wedding means you’ll have to try things you never did before and applies to securing vendors too. If you are trying to get a wedding vendor during this pandemic, here are smart ways to hire them from your home.
- Venue: Online Tours
Many venues are beginning to do virtual venue tours so you can have a view of their event place from the comfort of your sitting room couch. You’ll know exactly what to expect because the postings come in 360-degree walkthroughs allowing you to see every part of the event hall. To have a virtual walk of venues, event coordinators are the persons to point you in the right direction.
- Get a DJ Portfolio
How do you get to hire a DJ without having a feel of their works or seeing them in action? The best way to hire a DJ at this time is to ask them to create a playlist or send you a portfolio of past playlists at weddings they covered. With this, you’ll feel their vibe and understand what they’ll do at your wedding.
- Online Florist
You may have to place an online order for your florist to deliver flowers and sample their arrangements. The florist will have to collect your wedding colors and favorite flowers online, to help them pack the bouquet appropriately. The social distance might stop you from going to the flower shop, but not from having lovely flower themes at your wedding.
The menu at your wedding might have to come from local restaurants because you can’t meet your favorite caterers right now. But you can head to the websites of these local restaurants and check if their menu matches your wedding orders or if they can do a custom menu for you. After this, you can send them a mail or chat them up via social media to make further inquiries.
- Digital Dress Appointment
Like other vendors, bridal boutiques are beginning to offer virtual appointments where an attendant will have a consultation with you to find out your style, expectations, and prices for a wedding gown. You will be shown options via the screen so you can select what catches your fancy the most. Even though you will still want to try on the dress, utilizing this method means you’ve circumvented the need to try on so many dresses.
