As counties and states start to implement new mandates or even lift restrictions, many couples are getting more and more excited to start planning their future wedding. Whether it was planned for spring and rescheduled or they’re newly engaged and starting fresh with a new date! But what is the best way to plan a wedding during the Coronavirus pandemic? Has COVID-19 changed the way events are produced for the near future? On Wednesday, May 14th, we sat down with Jeannette Tavares of luxury planning company Evoke Design & Creative on Instagram Live to dive into the topics many couples are currently faced with around the world.

“We’re based in DC but work worldwide – wherever you want to take us, we will go,” shares Jeannette Tavares, encouraging brides and grooms to keep planning their dream wedding day. “Our level of planning is concierge level. We love to plan experiences!” Taking each client’s wedding into account to create a personalized plan for this new way of life is of the utmost importance to their team.

“We’ve been working really hard with our clients to make sure their vision stays intact… we’re putting out positive messages, which is exactly what we believe in, and working really hard to still get them planning – whether that means setting up a virtual venue tour, or having a Zoom call with us,” she adds. “There is an opportunity right now to continue planning and to continue getting really creative ideas.” We can’t wait to see more of the gorgeous weddings they’ll creatively plan in 2020, 2021, and beyond!
