    How to Plan a Wedding in the Era of COVID

    Planning a wedding is notoriously stressful; between finding the perfect dress and the
    ultimate DJ, it’s hard to find time for much else. With restrictions on gathering size,
    social distancing, and traveling, the age of COVID-19 certainly hasn’t made it any
    easier, but don’t worry! Nothing can take away the magic of your big day; you might just
    have to make a few adjustments.

    Your wedding is about celebrating the love you’ve found and telling your story in the way
    you want others to hear. How you choose to do that is entirely up to you, but a global
    pandemic might need to have a say in the where.

    Let’s Start with the Guest List

    With consideration to your city’s local regulations – and the venue size you’re
    considering, of course – it’s time to start the guest list! Start with your closest family and
    friends, and go from there. In this day and age, people are more than understanding
    about not being added to your final guest list, and a smaller ceremony is the easiest
    way to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and comfortable.

    Micro-weddings have their own appeal: more affordable catering, smaller venues, and a
    more intimate ceremony. But if you’ve been dreaming of a big wedding your whole life,
    there are still options out there. Consider an outdoor venue with social distanced
    seating or a hybrid wedding – live streamed for friends, neighbors, and extended family –
    depending on what you need.

    Look for Venues with Safety Guidelines

    Your venue should meet local safety guidelines and your personal needs! Whether
    you’re looking for a grand ballroom or a small brickyard garden, there’s a space just
    waiting for you to make your mark on it. Finding the right one is as simple as asking a
    few questions.

    Many venues have sanitation processes in place, and you should ask your tour guide to
    explain them to you. You’ll also want to inquire about their masking requirements, social
    distanced seating plans, and max capacity. Once you find the right one, you can narrow
    down or expand your guest list as needed. Just be sure to fill your guests in on your
    venue’s requirements!

    Communicate Your Needs to Your Vendors

    The most important thing about your wedding day is the moment you say “I do!”, but
    that first bite of wedding cake is a close second. With restaurants shutting their doors for months last year, caterers are excited to get back to work! You’ll just want to make sure
    they’ve done it safely.

    Communication is an essential part of the vendor relationship. Talk to your vendors
    about your concerns. The good ones will be more than willing to help ease your mind in
    any way they can. If a vendor isn’t willing to work within your venue’s guidelines, they’re
    probably not the one for you. Luckily, there are hundreds of options, and you don’t need
    to settle for less than perfect!

    Take Advantage of Zoom

    Wedding traditions have been evolving for thousands of years, and this globally striking
    curveball has changed the way we expect to attend. Don’t be afraid to hybridize your
    wedding by including distant and immunocompromised loved ones online. Services like
    Zoom, Skype, and Discord offer a new option: marriage via stream. Even Facebook
    Live has seen an uptick in vows since 2019!

    Streaming your wedding allows guests that may not feel comfortable attending in the
    flesh a unique opportunity to share the moment with you. A cellphone on a tripod may
    not be the most romantic idea, but it’s certainly an affordable one. Consider a
    videographer with experience live streaming footage for an extra special result.

    Don’t Forget to Enjoy Yourself!

    COVID-19 may have caused a few bumps in the road, but nothing could take away from
    the journey you’re embarking on. You can still spend hours finding that perfect dress,
    choosing colors and decor, and basking in the whirlwind of excitement. Sharing your life
    with someone is something worth celebrating.

    This day is about celebrating the love that you’ve found and the life that you’re building.
    Don’t forget it!
