Planning a wedding is no easy task, regardless of the state of the world. The past year couples all over the planet have faced unprecedented challenges surrounding their wedding days. The obstacles presented through the COVID-19 Pandemic has created insurmountable stress. It has demanded adaptation in virtually every aspect of life. Not knowing how the world will look in a week, let alone a year makes planning for the future a rather daunting task. The COVID-19 Pandemic has turned the entire wedding industry upside down and inside out. Whether you’re a planner, a vendor, or a couple, you are undoubtedly feeling the effects of this massive shift in our industry and global culture. I wanted to create this guide to pass on some lessons I’ve learned along the way. Hoping that I can make the process easier for members of my community whether they be across the street or and across the globe.
Your wedding may look slightly different than you imagined. Planning and creating thoughtful seating arrangements and event format options allow guests to celebrate at a safe distance. Guests may wear face coverings or gloves and may sit with members of their household. The love and magic of the day won’t be compromised.
If dancing is a non-negotiable necessity, spread small dance floors around your venue. Set up a station to have video chats with your virtual guests. Relocating too an outdoor area would be the best solution. It provides extra ventilation and space to keep your guests healthy and comfortable.
Having a smaller guest list allows you to spend more quality time with each and every guest. Smaller weddings mean smaller decisions. Meaning smaller amounts of stress. Look at it as a blessing in disguise!
