Wedding Season at the Shaar

07/04/2019 03:44:45 PM





As the season of sunshine and vacations unfolds, the entire city has begun to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. However, even in these warm weather months, the Shaar is abuzz with activity. Within just eight days, we will be hosting five weddings, and behind the scenes is a whirlwind of activity dedicated to ensuring that each one is a magical and meaningful experience.


Vendors and suppliers for every event of the week must be carefully scheduled to allow time for setup and cleanup of the Sanctuary and halls. Everything from tables and chairs, dishes and tablecloths, to drapes, bars, and dance floors must be shipped in, assembled, disassembled, and shipped out, often in less than 24 hours. In order to achieve this, the comings, goings, setup, and dismantling of every single item must be carefully monitored and planned in an astounding feat of coordination. Every part of the process is meticulously organized and extremely demanding, and during wedding season at the Shaar we have staff working during all hours of the day and night to prepare the hall, set up the Sanctuary, and make sure that everything is perfect in preparation for the arrival of hundreds of guests.


Everybody wants a summer wedding, but days are in short supply. In order to keep up with the demand, everything must be done as efficiently and quickly as possible, erasing any trace of the night before by morning and building an entirely new setup by evening. Without the hard work that our staff put in, both in terms of coordination and labour, we would be unable to host such brilliant events, and we are thankful for everything they do.


Mazel Tov to our newlyweds, and good wishes for the future.
