Tying the knot in this time of pandemic offers so many challenges.
While things are now uncertain, questions like “what if” abound in the minds of marrying couples. But, it should not take the excitement away that comes with wedding planning. We have listed down some of the tips to consider as you plan your wedding during a pandemic.
1. Decide on the venue and destination.
DC and Virginia are among the federal states that lifted all capacity restrictions and fully reopened their city as early this June 11, 2021, and May 28, 2021, respectively. Your best option of hosting a wedding amid the pandemic is to have it outdoors. However, if you are still intent on holding your wedding indoors, choose a well – ventilated with ample space for your guests to move around.
2. Hire a Wedding Planner
Planning a wedding at this time of the pandemic is tedious, to say the least. If there was ever the best time to hire a wedding planner, it would be now! Book an appointment and a free consultation with us and we guarantee to scout the best wedding themes, vendor communications, fair contract negotiations, while we make your entire venue compliant with the latest local, state, and federal safety regulations and guidelines.
3. Opt for a micro wedding
Now that weddings during the pandemic have created newer ideas in the wedding industry, some couples opt for a “minimony” or a micro wedding. It is an intimate affair, usually with no more than 50 invitees. Although they still have the time-honored traditions that come with weddings, the guest size is smaller which is ideal during Covid -19.
4. Livestream Your Celebration
If you have chosen a micro wedding and still want more friends and families to attend virtually, we recommend live streaming your wedding ceremony and celebration. Your wedding videographer will film the real-time happenings during your wedding and will post them into your preferred social media accounts. More so, your wedding planner can even create a virtual guest book so your friends and families can still send you warm messages even from a distance!
5. Specify and update safety guidelines on your wedding invites
Your wedding invite is the appropriate place to list the safety protocols and sanitation measures that you want your guests to observe while physically attending your wedding. This eliminates confusion by stating clear guidelines on wearing masks, social distancing, and handling of tokens. Your guests will appreciate being informed of safety measures ahead of time, thus giving everyone peace of mind while savoring the event.
