COVID-19 Action Plan for Weddings and Events

COVID-19 Action Plan for Weddings and Events

We have gathered some suggestions to help you navigate the pandemic situation and created a COVID-19 Action Plan for Weddings and Events we wanted to share with you. Our advice is only advice, so please consult a lawyer on legal questions.

  • Event insurance is not currently available, but consider getting event insurance in the future if your date is far enough into the future.
  • Contact vendors you work with to make sure you are on the same page about how to handle cancelations and especially postponements.
  • Review your contract to see if you are entitled to a partial refund or a full refund if you cancel. If you postpone, see what restrictions or penalties you have listed in the original contract.
  • Start with your venue and then contact your wedding pros that will be the hardest to rebook (for example, a caterer may do 5 events in a day but a venue only does 1).
  • Limit in-person meetings and switch to phone meetings only if possible.

Why You Should Prep for Your Wedding Day Photography

 

Why You Should Prep for Your Wedding Day Photography

A common mistake many brides make is not creating a wedding picture list. Not sure what that exactly is? The Bride Link and Ben Moser from Knox Wedding Creative are here to help! Your picture list is simply a list of shots you want your photographer to capture on your wedding day. A picture list includes specific poses you want, beautiful backdrops at the venue, time of day (golden hour), bridal party groups, etc. It's so important to discuss these ideas with your photographer during the planning stages.

Great photographers like Knox Wedding Creative know to ask their couples precisely this beforehand. Ben joins us this week on The Bride Link podcast to share his valuable insight!

Why Your Wedding Photos Shouldn't Only Be Digital

Why Your Wedding Photos Shouldn't Only Be Digital

2020-03-02_0002.jpg

In this digital age, it's so easy to see a picture once on your phone, forget it, and never look at it again! Wedding album designs that make layflat photo books beautiful and engaging are becoming increasingly popular with couples. Wedding album printing and professional photo books help relive some of the most incredible moments you'll experience.

Displaying your printed picture or photo album makes the images more likely to be viewed, and more often. If you keep all your event or wedding shots exclusively digital, they can be permanently lost or deleted if not backed up properly. We also already spend so much time looking at our computer, phone, and TV screens. 

Treasured memories deserve only the best. Bringing together exquisite materials and bespoke designs in a physical collection of images can be stunning! Create albums about your entire event or albums that focus on you and your...
