Your Ultimate Guide For Weddings During Covid-19
To have or not to have a wedding is one confusing dilemma for most couples this year; some are deciding to seal the deal, some are thinking of postponing the wedding, and others want to have an entire ceremony nonetheless.
Whatever your case is, you’re not alone, and navigating this ever-changing scenario is a challenge for many.
To prepare for your big day in these difficult circumstances, you need to hope for the best and plan for the worst. This blog will help you prepare for your wedding from A to Z:
- Check Local Laws
Every country has established its regulations when it comes to weddings. So, what you need to do is check the laws concerning significant events and gatherings in the location of your ceremony to have a better idea of how many people you can invite, indoors vs outdoors setting, yes or no seniors allowed, etc.
Although regulations differ from time to time and from one place to another, most weddings tend to proceed with caution, wearing masks, keeping distance, washing hands, and sanitizing surfaces.
- Host Your Wedding At Home
It’s not that bad that you have to postpone your wedding until next year! A wedding is the beginning of a new, beautiful journey. Of course, it’s sad not to have the event of your dreams, but you can still have a lovely and memorable celebration at home with a few loved ones doing the following:
- Ensuring everything is well sterilised.
- Downsizing your guests list by inviting only family members and close friends.
- Choosing outdoor over indoor spaces.
Everyone needs to be masked up, so as a host, you carry the responsibility of providing face masks for anyone who might have forgotten theirs, along with hand sanitizers and friendly signs to keep distance.
- Plan For Your Honeymoon In Advance
Because you’ve already had to compromise your wedding, make sure you reserve for your honeymoon as early as you can.
Although your honeymoon is also very significant in the relationship and should be planned to avoid complications, you should leave a space for improvisation these days.
