Having had to endure periodic lockdowns over the past 18 months or thereabouts, soon-to-be-weds are certainly looking towards the day when they can host a wedding reception to celebrate the nuptials that they have been planning for all this while. The pent-up demand is palpable. It is a matter of time before this demand is unleashed, particularly once the majority of the population has been vaccinated and when we see the infection numbers decline.
As we get prepared to gear up to face this scenario, venues, especially hotels, are putting in place the necessary processes to help couples plan for their celebrations in the new normal. Be it SOPs, packages catering to more intimate weddings or efficient layout of tables to meet social distancing guideline, the ones that are well prepared will certainly benefit when the enquiries start rolling in, in time to come.
A couple of suggestions :
- Start identifying potential venues and make a shortlist.
- Approach the venues and request for packages for review.
- Keep a look out for promotions.
Tip : Connect with the events team of Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur for now in order to get the ball rolling in terms of preliminary planning for your nuptials next year. And when inter-district travel is once again possible, perhaps pay a visit to have a first-hand look at the venues available.
