– If your celebration is going to be from September onward, our best advice is to WAIT before postponing – you may have done it unneedingly in the end, but we do advise preparing a contingency date across your vendors.

 

El Folio Entertainment and other wedding professionals in Vermont are closely monitoring the situation that is affecting us all. Please remember that we ALL hold a responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We know that you’re concerned about what this means for your upcoming celebration. We are prepared to serve you by any means necessary, and will help in any responsible way possible to mitigate postponing or even canceling your affair, which given the current circumstances, we will never do from our end. We understand that any decision to postpone does not just affect our services, but that of the venue, flowers, cake, bar service, guests, and so on.




Q: How is El Folio Entertainment responding to COVID-19?

A: All of us carry a responsibility in minimizing the spread of COVID-19, and we are certainly no exception. We are also limiting our events to only weddings and turning away public events such as clubs and school dances until further notice. By doing this we are not exposing ourselves or our equipment to large groups of people more than necessary.

We remain one of the few single-operation DJ companies in Vermont and as such keep a smaller event count.

We have always used electronic online planning assets which make planning your celebration easy, thus making meetings optional. We will continue to meet as requested on a case by case basis, but remind our clients that planning can continue in the comfort of your own home, with video chat available via Facebook video messaging. Click “contact” above for all methods to reach out to us at any time during your planning process.

We remain open for business and are accepting new requests for 2021 and beyond.

Our 2020 Cancellation/Postponement policy:


We are all concerned during this difficult and unprecedented time, and our hearts go out to those affected, some in health, many more economically.

We encourage further questions to our email, ElFolioEntertainment@gmail.com regarding this situation and we will try to post pertinent responses here.

Thank you, and we unequivocally still look forward to celebrating with you!
