How to Make the Most of Your Postponed Event Due to COVID-19
The world as we knew it at the beginning of 2020 looks a whole lot different now. Bustling cocktail hours, packed dance floors, and cramped reception halls are a thing of the past (at least for now). We’re not here to rain on your parade, though. The team at Mugwump wants to equip you with all the information you need to make your parties fun and safe. Here’s your go-to guide for throwing events in Jacksonville in the post-COVID era:
Use your new coronavirus outlook as an opportunity for growth. Instead of remaining inside the box of expected event trends, give your guests an experience they won’t forget. This is easier said than done, of course!
Our event professionals say it’s more important than ever to partner with a professional planner. Unique venue layouts, unconventional event timelines, and alternative dining options should all be considered for the safety of your guests. Take your precautions to the next level with the addition of plexiglass shields and fully digital invites.
We’ve learned many lessons in the past couple of months. One of the silver linings of the pandemic is discovering the efficiency at which we can work and learn remotely. Allowing your guests to stay home without skipping your event is a huge game-changer.
Whether you’re planning a beautiful wedding or an educational seminar, live streaming allows your guest to plug in without stepping foot in the venue. It’s crucial to partner with a tech-savvy team to make your live footage a success. Our sister company, Sight & Sound Productions, specializes in all things audio and visual for the Jacksonville event scene.
A creative and exciting way to approach your event is to break it up over multiple days (or over the course of one long day). This concept isn’t entirely new, either. Wedding weekends, for example, are incredibly popular and involve multiple events with different purposes.
How can you apply this concept to your unique situation, exactly? Provide guests with a simple-to-follow timeline that describes the nature of your micro-events. This allows event-goers to pick and choose their schedule. You can even include RSVP requirements for each event so you can best manage the headcount.
Our team is here for you. From custom prop builds to event planning expertise, it’s our job to make your upcoming event the best it can be. Are you ready to discuss ideas for your wedding, corporate gathering, or social event? Contact the Mugwump professionals today to get started.
