In order to WOW today's couples, your communication needs to be more than a generic follow up email. As I mentioned in previous articles (see our WedPro blog), couples for the most part have never organised a wedding before, and they can be feeling overwhelmed and will often rely heavily on your expertise.
There is a disconnect between COUPLES who are not feeling special and VENUES who are being ghosted. In our recent 2021 Industry Survey we asked couples how the venue enquiry experience made them feel. 14% said they felt like just another number and 53% said nothing (about the experience) really stood out.

Virtual wedding fairs used to be a nice alternative to in-person tours for those who couldn’t make an in-person show-round. Today however, they are essential - they are practical, safe, within restriction guidelines and provide a great opportunity while your venue might be still closed. Just like an in-person wedding fair, organisation is key in order to make the most of the opportunity.
