Planning for my event during COVID-19

What to consider when adjusting my event due to the pandemic effecting the world 

There will come a time when it is safe to gather and when that time comes, ensure you're ready to plan your event. Listed below are three quick tips to help support you on the importance of rescheduling. COVID-19 is impacting all aspects of your life and Carrie White Photography along with all the other vendors involved with your planning want you to feel prepared.  

1. Postpone, Don’t Cancel

You’ve probably heard and seen this one posted all over the place. But it’s ultimately the most important message to send to you. Extending event booking dates and reworking vendor payment structures help industry businesses and their staff plan for the future, so the majority of vendors are more than happy to strike up a conversation about making changes rather than cancelling. So reach out to your vendors and encourage them to work with you to pick a new date in the near future, working together will ensure you have a date and also can reduce the chance of you having to pay a rate increase because prices have changed. 

2.  Get a Head Start on Planning

There are quite a few people still in the very early stages of planning their wedding or events.  Consider this extra "home time" as a great opportunity to start working with or chatting with any of vendors.  Take this time at home to really dig into wedding and event planning. Now is the perfect time to lock in your dream venue and professional event vendors for later this year and into 2021.

3. Guests Are Going to Be Ready to Celebrate

Guests are going to be ready to celebrate, gather and party in person more than ever before. Now more than ever,  be  encouraged that you have the opportunity to give real meaning to your wedding or event in the future. It won’t just be a  celebration, it will be a celebration of unity and resilience. Family and friends are going to be ready for it!
