What kind of weddings are people having during the pandemic? Are y’all still doing the traditional wedding but implementing covid precautions (social distance, sanitizing stations...etc.) or are y’all eloping or doing smaller events? Also, how many guests are y’all having? My wedding is August 13th, 2021, we’ll be having about 100 guests and we’ll be having a socially distant wedding.
We're going the traditional route! Our wedding is in Jan. 2022 with an estimated guest count of 170, so we're hoping things have calmed down by then!
If things are still the same, or haven't improved enough, then we'll implement some safety precautions to make our guests feel more at ease. (providing face masks, hand sanitizer etc).
It's also important to check with vendors and your venue on what regulations they have in place due to the pandemic. Our venue doesn't have any stipulations, so we're proceeding as normal. Some venues in our area have strict rules...so it all depends.
We’re having a backyard wedding in May with only about 50-60 guests. This is what we would be doing whether there was COVID or not for money purposes and us not wanting a huge wedding! It’s definitely worked out in our favor, I have no stress or uncertainty about what I may need to change or postpone due to COVID regulations.
We are having about 120 people in a barn venue, which is what we probably would have done without Covid anyway. Depending on how things look in December, we will be asking people to wear masks at the ceremony, provide hand sanitizer, and have more options for people who want to socially distance (further spaced, smaller tables). We are fortunate not to have any local or state restrictions on weddings thus far.
My wedding is September 11th 2021. We have about 132 people invited so about 90 to 100 will probably show up. We are providing hand sanitizer and masks but it’s there choice if they would like to wear them or not.
We have never had a guest list higher than 40. Since COVID hit, our GL has dropped down to less than 25 people. Our venue package has sanitation stations and it is outside. The people have attending are those we have been seeing regularly since the beginning of last year. It has not changed.
We're going the traditional route but implementing Covid precautions like custom-made masks and hand sanitizers. Our venue offers sanitation stations. We're inviting about 160 and our venue accommodates 400 so we believe we'll have enough space & room to safely dine and dance.
My wedding is in June and we're having around 60 guests in a traditional country club venue, down from our planned list of 150. We plan to stream the ceremony for anyone who can't attend, masks will be required when not eating (bought custom masks for the bridal party), and I've bought small bottles of Purell for each of my guests. Our tables can normally seat 8-10, but we're only putting 6 guests to a table to help with social distancing, and we changed from a buffet to a plated dinner.
We have decided to elope with possibly our parents present. Too conplicated with our state's mandates to have a traditional wedding. We also wanted to prioritize paying off student loan debt, credit card debt and save up for a house.
We’re going the traditional route with covid precautions (hand sanitizer, custom masks, rapid tests). We will also have people sit with their families and ample spacing throughout the venue. We have an option to move the reception outdoors (it’s tented now). We’re inviting 100 people but will also go down if things don’t improve. Hoping for the best!
Our wedding is in October and we're going forward with a traditional wedding. We're having around 80 guests and everything is pretty much outdoors (our reception is in a pavilion style building so it's open). I'm so hoping by then that vaccines are wide spread and everyone feels safe. If need be, we'll still provide plenty of masks and hand sanitizer for everyone.
