The post Covid-19 functioning of hotels and resorts in the city has seen a major change with owners and customers focusing on caution. With nearly 60 per cent cut down on wedding extravagance and shifting to contactless service, the hotels are adopting safety guidelines in their business model while organising any social event. There is now no more self-service of food. Rather disposable cutlery and sanitisation tunnels have become the new must-haves during a wedding event.

“The pandemic has changed quite a lot as far as organising social and wedding events are concerned. Most of the services are now being offered by hotels through contactless methods, especially during food service. The buffet system, which works on the basis of guests serving themselves, has been replaced by contactless food service through a single person.

“The cutlery, used during wedding events, is now sanitised and wrapped in sheets and handed over to guests just before the food service opens. We also distribute masks to guests on arrival in case they come without wearing them. Masks and gloves are mandatory for the service and other staff during any event. The number of guests attending any event is also decided upon beforehand and strictly adhered to,” said Tarsem Singh, VP, Best Western Merrion.

Besides cutting down on wedding services that otherwise used to be a lavish affair before the Covid-19 period, a limited menu is offered to guests to minimise wastage. According to Ravindra Das of Holiday Inn, almost all wedding events these days have limited guests and people prefer simple arrangements. So, there has been seen a big cut in décor and flower arrangements and food choices too have changed.
