Miami Dade mayor makes announcement
We have excellent news that we are so happy to announce! As of Monday, June 8th, wedding banquet halls for newly weds are able to open!
Back in March, Florida started ordering some businesses to shut down amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Eventually, all business and facilities except what was deemed essential were closed, and people were instructed to stay home.
Virtually all weddings had to be rescheduled, and no one was sure when they’d resume again.
Now we see the light at the end of the tunnel!
As per Miami Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s instruction, venues have begun to open.
If you’d like to read more about Florida’s reopening, you can find the article here.
If you still feel unsure about having a traditional wedding at a venue, some couples are coming up with new ways to celebrate this beautiful day of love.
Some are doing small weddings (under 10 people), with social distancing (photographer/videographer will wear a face mask, keep 6 feet distance). Areas this could take place could be a park or a backyard wedding.
This couple decided to get married at South Pointe Park with close friends and family, and it was a great success! See all their photos here.
Another idea is to do a couples photoshoot (the shooter will practice social distancing as well and wear a face mask). This would be a great & safe way to commemorate and acknowledge your wedding day!
We know this situation has caused many people anxiety and concern, and we are here to accommodate different ways to get married while ensuring everyone’s safety. Feel free to tell us your ideas!
Resuming your wedding planning
Because wedding planning is back in motion, here are some important reminders to ensure you’re prepared for any situation!
- Stay in contact with your venue
-As there are many unknowns when it comes to COVID-19 and how it will affect your wedding, be sure to check in with your venue for any updates on their end! Venues are processing very large amounts of reschedules/cancellations and may not inform you if there is a change in the amount of guests allowed, etc.
2. Update all vendors when there is a change of plan
-If you decide to postpone your wedding, change the guest amount or the amount of hours needed of work with vendors, update them ASAP! If you reschedule a wedding without checking if your vendors are available for the date, they may not be able to accommodate you. Therefore, check in with them before confirming a new date with the venue to save yourself the stress of having to find a new vendor!
3. Be in touch with guests
-Your guests may have many questions of how the wedding will be structured as well, such as if there be social distancing, how many guests are allowed/will be there etc. A periodic update to them would save you from answering the same questions and easing their possible anxiety too!
We are very excited to get back to doing what we love most, capturing your perfect day! Feel free to contact us with any questions!
