While we expect the demand for smaller, more personalised nuptials to be on the rise, one should not be surprised that the preference for wedding banquets remains as strong as ever, despite the need to meet the necessary social distancing requirements set by the health authorities. Once soon-to-be-weds are able to set a date to mark this milestone in their lives, we will see a deluge of bookings for ballrooms, and thereafter a need to plan meticulously.
Plan meticulously in order to abide by safety protocols, but most importantly, to ensure a celebration that befits this significant occasion, notwithstanding the challenges. A hotel’s experienced events team will be able to assist in the former, whilst a team of specialist vendors appointed by the couple would certainly be well equipped to ensure the latter.
Some advice :
- Keep tabs on the evolving protocols and once you are sure that events can take place again, book your venue promptly as demand may outstrip supply, especially for weekend weddings.
- Keep up with your research, be it for venues or vendors, and be aware of any promotions that may be on offer.
Tip : When the opportunity arises again, fix an appointment to meet with the wedding specialist at The Westin Kuala Lumpur to learn more about their wedding packages as well as to view their venues suited to nuptials. More details here.
