As a team, we created our own Health & Safety Checklist that we use in discussions with our couples to review. This checklist includes what was mandated by Texas in their Open Texas Checklists, but also suggestions on what else can be done to help keep our clients, their guests, and vendors safe at events and help to prevent the spread of Covid-19. As of March 10th, Texas is fully open at 100%, the checklists no longer apply and the mask mandate has been removed. We decided to keep this information for those who would like to keep some precautions for now. This list is meant to open conversation and help educate everyone on what their options are so they can figure out what works best for their event. We want to share it with you in case this helps you in conversations with your venue, planner, and vendor team.
As I’ve said many times this year, our industry is based on imagination and those in our industry are true innovators! We’ve been so impressed with what members of our community of have done that we thought we’d share a few of these resources with you as you just might want to have them at your next celebration!
COVID Defense Products (aka Shag Carpet)
Shag Carpet Prop Rentals got BUSY once they realized businesses everywhere, not just events, needed proper equipment to help prevent spread. From signage to help with social distancing to barriers for office desks or buffets, they have been hard at work creating what you need, for purchase or rental, to keep everyone safe. Their division for these is called COVID Defense Products and you find it here.
Harmland Visions LiveStreaming Service
While many companies are offering a livestream option, Harmland Visions took the next step with creating packages for multiple-camera operators to give your online guests more of an experience in attending the wedding virtually. They also record all of the streams, so you have everything that your guests watched.
From Linens to Masks
Many, many companies and people have jumped on board with creating face masks, whether in general or custom. April Hamm with AM Linen Rentals was one of the first and you can check out their masks at https://fromlinenstomasks.com. As soon as we have a solid DFW resource for custom face masks, we’ll be sure to add it here!
