Have the details of your wedding changed due to the pandemic? Is it now more do-it-yourself? Are you overwhelmed by the constantly changing guidelines? The Tapuz team of service staff is here to assist!
Over the last couple of months, many weddings have either been postponed or cancelled— but love should not be cancelled!
If you are still racking your brain trying to come up with a new plan for your big day, a Minimony or Micro Wedding might be something to consider! According to The Knot, a Minimony is a small ceremony which can include up to 10 people (with social distancing) plus any vendors that you require. Many couples have been choosing to have a Minimony, followed by what's called a Sequel Wedding next year, which would be the original dream wedding you were planning pre-pandemic. Another option we like is the Micro Wedding. A Micro Wedding consists of 50 guests or less — think of it as a traditional wedding, but just with a more intimate setting.
Our Event and Service Staff can assist with DIY events, with setting up decor, cleaning up before, during and/or after the event, greeting, guiding and serving guests, creating your signature cocktail for your special day (our Bar Captains are happy to take the lead on this!), and much more. As an additional note, our team will be following all CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of you and your guests. Whatever it is, we are here to help make your special day unforgettable and stress-free!
