Wedding Planners are having a very hard time right now. The current situation has imposed lock downs and plenty of restrictions. The spread of Covid is making life very difficult.

Luckily, weddings planners are a hardy and inventive group and have a lot to say on how to cope and move forward.

Pointers For Planners
“As part of your wedding planner courses, you’ll learn the fundamentals needed to organize and execute the wedding of your client’s dreams! But what if she has important guests that can’t make it to her big day?

Natural disasters, travel issues, a global pandemic.

That’s where wedding planner marketing comes in.
Normally, this time of year wedding planners would be in full event mode -weddings every weekend, pre-event meetings during the week, and thriving in the typical excitement and business of wedding season.

As COVID-19 is likely to persist with us for some time. How can wedding and event planners keep their employees and themselves safe during wedding season and in the future?
As I mentioned above, weddings are still taking place, as demonstrated by blogger Alison Tinlin at the Plans & Presents Wedding Blog. Alison regularly shares beautiful wedding photos that are simply too good to miss!
