Here we are, July 23rd, 2020 and we've all been through quite a lot with a fair amount of uncertainty left regarding gatherings and big events. Like everyone else in the country and specifically in the event business we've been looking for opportunities to support each other and help couples make their big day as special as they are, as inclusive as they can be, as fabulous as virtual attendance can offer and as full of love as any couple has dreamed of. In one word we can offer the key to success: adaptability. Back in March, the actual day that quarantine and work-from-home directives were put in place in much of the Denver-Metro area, we wrote about technology being your friend. Wow, at the time we really didn't know how much, and now we have a clue and have seen lots of success with various platforms.
Here's the short list: Decide what is most important to you and plan a way to make that happen, if it includes the physical presence of certain people, then work within the parameters of local social distancing directives. OR, consider a date next year when we are more likely to be able to gather. Many of our couples are looking at summer and fall 2021 as their new dates and letting 2020 fade away as it has been and will continue to be, a challenging time. Sure, there's no guarantee that 2021 will be less challenging, yet we all will have much more experience navigating the hurdles and successfully holding events where the health and safety of those present is common practice. Keri is working on a collection of "fancy masks" so that she can pull off the party look and offer safer social presence. And this is a reality, you will need to work with your planner and guests on what safer practices look like at your event. We are here to help with problem-solving discussions and support, don't hesitate to contact Pearl Events!
