Having a Wedding During COVID

Things every couple should consider when getting married during a pandemic.

COVID is changing weddings for couples everywhere. While some locations may be more or less impacted than others, there is no doubt that every couple will have new challenges and things to consider.

A pandemic wedding may impact everything from guest count, catering and even venue. Let’s breakdown how these three things could impact your big day.

  • GUESTS: Many states have restrictions on groups and large gatherings. Also, getting married in a pandemic is going to limit travel for guests. Consider keeping the group to strictly family and close friends. You can provide a virtual attendee option for guests and livestream your event.
  • CATERING: Catering has forever been changed. Many people are skeptical of buffet-style meal service. Work with your caterer to determine other options that could work for your event.
  • VENUE: When possible, many couples are moving their ceremony and reception outdoors – this allows for better social distancing of guests.

There isn’t one right way to approach these decisions during COVID – these times are unprecedented. However, there are lots of safety measures you can implement to make things safer for everyone.
