Planning for 2021
2021 promises to be a big year for wedding venues. Original plans and lockdown postponements combining to make a bumper year for celebrating love. The prospect of increased demand can be overwhelming, though, particularly for independently run wedding venues. We’ve put together some tips to ensure you’re getting the most out of your business in 2021.
Have a contingency plan
Although many have high hopes for 2021, it’s important to remember that we don’t know exactly what next year will bring. It would be wise, therefore, to write and share a blanket contingency plan with all of your prospective clients in order to limit confusion should government guidance change at the last minute. Remember to include contact information for the relevant people within your business, and a link to the website or social media account you’ll post any news on.
Consider outdoor options
We know lots of beautiful venues are indoor-only. If you have access to some outside space — whether it’s acres of parkland or a compact courtyard — it could be worth considering how you could use them as an outdoor alternative to your venue. Contacting local marquee companies now could save you last-minute scrambling to relocate into the fresh air.
Virtual tours for wedding venues
We’re sure your calendar is already looking busy for 2021, and it’s only going to get more tightly packed. It can be difficult to find the time to show your venue to prospective clients in all its glory. Especially when it’s constantly partway through being set up for or dismantled from a ceremony. Having a virtual tour of your venue at its best on your website allows prospective clients to view and book your space without having to visit. This also means avoiding the need for extra resources and cleaning for viewings.

The most impactful element of most wedding venues’ websites is the images. They’re the part which really show how beautiful your space is, and they usually greet the viewer from every page. In 2021, it will be more important than ever to make sure the images on your website reflect the beauty of your venue accurately and attractively.
While we can’t tell the future or guarantee what 2021 will look like for the wedding industry exactly, we can help you to make the booking process stress-free for you and your clients.
