Bubbles on Tap
Smaller weddings trend amidst COVID-19, inspiring New Orleans vendors to get creative
Last week, we reported on what the new restrictions announced by Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell mean for weddings and events in the Big Easy. It’s important to adhere to the state mandates and the CDC guidelines and some wedding vendors are finding ways to participate in their client’s intimate wedding and gatherings while keeping staff and guests safe and working within the rules.
Heather Massel is the New Orleans native behind New Orleans’ Bubble Tap trailer mobile bubble bar says she’s ready for whatever changes coronavirus brings to the wedding industry.
“Unfortunately, I think small, intimate weddings will be the new norm for the next couple of months and we would love to be a part of it,” Massel told us. “Who couldn’t use a mobile champagne bar during all this uncertainty?”
We couldn’t agree more. With a smaller party and guest list, the chic trailer that would look at home in any Wes Anderson film is a way to add something extra for your friends and family after a few derailed plans.
“The guests are always excited to see a vintage trailer serving champagne and wine on tap,” Massel said. “The level of excitement always intensifies when you tell them about the photo booth.”
In addition to the Bubble Tap representative that delivers and sets up the trailer – which is completely wiped down after setup – wearing protective gloves and mask, Massel is has a few special offers for couples. Couples who book during the crises will receive a discount, plus use of the photo booth inside the trailer free of charge.
As the coronavirus continues to change wedding and event plans, we continue to offer tips and tricks to navigate the ever-changing landscape, as well as vendor updates on who is still up and running and offering couple’s a little lagniappe for their Big Day.
