As the people start accepting the New Normal, wedding would be a strong factor of revenue generation for hotels especially independent hotels and resorts as people would be more likely to choose domestic destinations for their weddings to avoid risk of the pandemic and travelling international and off course the cost of the wedding. People will now be willing to visit risk-free destinations, that’s when the resorts located at hill-stations and destinations could get a chance to enhance it’s visibility in destination weddings being away from the hustle-bustle and crowd of the cities having the least risk of the spread of the virus.
Alter in the big fat wedding plans to intimate ceremonies
Keeping the restrictions for social gathering & cost cutting wedding plans in minds, the guests will now be opting for the limited guest in the wedding
Demand for open air venues would be higher followed by indoor.
The post pandemic era, once people start socialising with the new normal, outdoor banqueting would be a priority as there would be plenty of space for all the guest to maintain physical distancing compared to indoor banqueting with all the precautions the hotel and staff would be taking to maintain safety.
A tweak in the dining services.
The highlight of Indian destination weddings are the lavish buffets, never the less, compiling to the safety precautions people may opt for sit down dining pattern to avoid gathering of guests at buffet counters. Or some may still stick to the buffet option, keeping the 6 feet distancing with accurate line marking between people.
Sanitation on point.
It is very much obvious that the hotel will be taking all the necessary measures to ensure the safety of all the guest, but it could be difficult then ever to convince the clients about it. Right from the entry, to have contactless check –ins with temperature checks and easy accessibility of sanitizers, napkins, gloves to guests at the common areas. Maintaining distancing norms with accurate marks at the events venue till the check-out of the guests, it has to be accurately planned or hire the best wedding planners around you to have the most beautiful and intimate destination wedding during the pandemic organised for you as per your plans.
