With most of the country under socially distancing orders, many couples have had their weddings canceled or postponed. Therefore many engaged couples are hosting their weddings virtually using Zoom. We believe that Zoom weddings will become increasingly popular because it has recently become challenging to secure a wedding venue. People are also experiencing financial hardships due to the effect of COVID-19 on the economy, and lastly when we emerge from social distancing guests may not want to attend large parties with crowds. 

The solution? The Zoom wedding business. 

According to Insider, a couple is having a 150 person wedding via Zoom. To save money and bring everyone together remotely, the happy couple arranged a Zoom wedding. But this will be no ordinary Zoom wedding with a photographer, band, dress code, and assigned tables. The wedding will have live music, toasts, and dancing! While the couple will have a post-pandemic party, this will be their wedding ceremony. They found a Zoom wedding to be ideal because they could host more people at a lower cost.  

Many couples have Zoom weddings, but how can your restaurant, hotel or wedding venue get involved? We recommend that you create a package tailored to a couple who wants to get married via Zoom. The package can include a beautiful background setting for the ceremony, a champagne toast for two, a wedding cake, and, most importantly, a staff member to run the Zoom so the couple can participate without any fuss over the technology. 

Each service should be customizable so the bride and groom can pick every detail as they would for an in-person wedding. For a hotel, the package can even include a stay in a couples suite, or a restaurant can consist of a romantic candlelit dinner for post-ceremony. Think outside the box to move the wedding experience online!  The event is no longer just one day.

As wedding season approaches and we continue to socially distance, these Zoom weddings could be an excellent opportunity to use your venue on a Saturday night or any night of the week! People may want to even host their post-wedding party at the place that hosts their Zoom one, especially if you provide an excellent customer experience. For a Zoom wedding, the possibilities for creativity are endless!
