When it comes to your special day, it’s all about you and your partner. Simply follow these easy steps on how to adapt your wedding to lower risk of COVID-19 while continuing the celebration of love.
Make It An Outside Affair
Many wedding venues offer an indoor and outdoor option. By taking the ceremony outside, you’ll be able to socially distance the people who mean the most to you. Some bridal parties are even providing their guests with gift bags filled with hand sanitizer and face masks to mark the special occasion.
Have An Intimate Ceremony Now And Large Reception Later
Couples are having “micro-weddings” with only close family and friends to limit the possibility of spread. Then, planning a large-scale party the following year to celebrate with all of the original guests. Simply send out a “Change The Date” invite in the mail or virtually to update all of your friends and family of the new reception date and let them know that the party can wait but forever can’t.
Go The Distance
For those that decide to have a more intimate ceremony, invite those that cannot attend in-person to see your special day virtually. Set up an account with popular services like Google Hangouts, Skype or Zoom, but be aware of time-limits on unpaid versions. As you create invitations, place the link, login and password so that they can login. Like a rehearsal dinner, we all need a little practice. We recommend setting up a pre-wedding virtual meeting so that those who are new to these services don’t miss a beat come wedding day. On the day of your wedding, delegate someone to go live and make sure everyone is muted. It’s as easy as that!
Don’t Give Up On The Honeymoon
Although traveling is very limited right now with countries around the world reopening at different rates, honeymoon plans are beginning to shift.. Now, resorts, hotels and getaways are heavily-regulated and faced with cleaning and sanitation requirements from local governments. Because of this, they are creating an environment focused on guests’ health and safety and offering more personalized and secluded experiences for couples. Before traveling, consult the CDC or WHO for the latest updates on COVID-19 and guidelines for travel. Another fun alternative, similar to micro-ceremonies are staycations to save for a bigger adventure later when it’s more safe. Just let the sparks fly at home and find little activities and moments where you can transform your space into a beautiful getaway that you won’t want to leave.
