Corona Brides, what are you doing?!

To the brides who married/are marrying between March 2020 and Sumner 2021, what did you do or plan on doing for masks with exchanging vows and taking pictures with your new spouse?

I really do not want to exchange vows nor take every picture with my FH wearing a mask.
Only asking what the nuptials did, not the guests or wedding party...

    For our minimony we didn't wear masks at all (it was in October) and I don't plan on wearing masks for our big wedding in March either. It was optional for our guests during our minimony and 99% of them opted out, only my aunt wore hers when she was close to people because she's at risk. No one caught COVID or any type sickness.

    I plan on having my makeup done for our big wedding as well so if I have to wear a mask I would honestly postpone it.

    I'm not in this category but I went to a wedding over labor day weekend and nobody wore masks really at all. The couple/ wedding party didn't at all, and very few guests did. It made me a little uncomfortable but fortunately as far as I know, nobody got covid. Mostly I felt bad for the venue staff.

    My friend is getting married in March 2021 and her venue is corporate so they are very strictly enforcing masks for all guests and the wedding party, but she and her FH will not have to wear them during the ceremony and pictures. Wedding party can also remove for pictures but not the ceremony as things currently stand.

    4/3/21 AZ bride here! I will be contacting our venue to see what the restrictions are in January. We are not postponing but the only thing that might change is the guest list.

    We are gtting married in February, and we are both very pro-mask (plus FH is super high-risk) so we are requesting that, if CoVID is still as prevalent as it is now in STL county, that our guests wear masks. We won't wear them during the ceremony or during pictures, but we will the rest of the time.

    It will depend on your state and size of wedding but u refused to wear a mask on my day and I didn't buy we had like three guests and we had been tested and hubby already had Corona. I would say for the ceremony your guests can be masked but you do not have to.

    For my friends wedding they allowed the bride, groom, and priest to not wear a mask during the ceremony. The bridal party sat in the front rows to limit amount of people standing. For photos, we didn’t have to wear masks either. Everyone in the bridal party was asked to get a covid test before which made us feel more comfortable.

    We actually just called the church about this today, lol. I am not wearing a mask at my wedding so if my venue had told me I needed to, I would be getting married somewhere else. Full stop. The coordinator doesn't think we or BP will have to, but she told us she was going to check with the pastor to be sure.

    I went to a wedding in Aug where they were very strict about masks at the ceremony but the bride and groom as well as BP didn't have to wear them.

    I’m getting married on May of 2021 the bridal party won’t be wearing masks. Everyone else can if they so choose but I’m not making it mandatory. Our venue has said they don’t care what we do it’s completely up to us on how we handle the situation but all of the staff will be wearing masks which is 100% fine with me. The ceremony is outside but our reception is inside.


    My best friend got married in October and she had it the same way, bridal party didn’t wear them but she had masks for all the guests if they wanted, and then for the reception she let people choose what they wanted to do. And by the time the night was over no one was wearing them.

    We won't be wearing masks but our venue coordinator will have staff that will take everyone's temperature on the way in and have ample supply of hand sanitizer. Any guest who decides to still wear one is fine but I'd hope they be ok with taking it off for 2 seconds to take a photo.

    Because my FH and I love together, there is no reason for us to be wearing a mask during the vows. We will be wearing one throughout the wedding and while walking down the aisle, but we are having our bridal party sit instead of stand next to us and the officiant will be 6ft away. We will also be outside to reduce the risk, so I think as long as no one is within 6ft of us we will be able to take our mask off during the vows.

    Everyone wore masks except for us. Honestly it was hardly noticeable, and I feel kind of guilty about not wearing one except I simply could not enjoy the day with one on. We were careful and really kept our distance except for a few quick photos. No one got sick, but you can see from our pics that we kept our numbers small.

    For our ceremony and taking pictures we didn't wear a mask since we already lived with each other before. And our bridal party didn't wear them either because our ceremony was all outside and they were able to distance themselves 6-ft from each other. Our guests did wear them though but it was hardly noticeable! Also we only had 21 people total attend. No one has caught covid or any sickness since then.

    We didn't wear masks for the ceremony and for photos. We wore masks the rest of the time (besides first dances and cake cutting). All of our guests wore masks during the wedding ceremony & reception except when seated and eating.

    I’m getting married May 2021. Our ceremony is outside. So far, we are planning for the bridal party and officiant to be mask free (the officiant said he doesn’t have a preference). I just prefer not to have masks in the photos.


    For the rest of the vendors/attendees it will be up to their discretion to wear a mask or not. In my state, we currently have a mask mandate indoors so we will provide a masks once they enter the indoor reception. Unless they are eating or drinking they will need to wear them inside by governor order. However, I’m sure most people will not be wearing them and having a drink in their hand (lets be honest, it’s a wedding with an open bar).
    We planned for our elderly guests (specifically our grandparents) to sit towards either the front or back corner of the room, whichever we feel will be socially distant enough but still close enough they can participate and feel included. We also want to make sure they have easy access to the restroom. The venue has a private one they are able to use. We also will have a special Row at the ceremony with empty 1 or 2 empty rows behind them to keep them distanced from other guests. For the ceremony, we also considered keeping them on a golf cart to the side where they can watch from. We will speak with the venue about what they believe is the best option. Keep in mind our venue is a country club/golf course. We plan to request anyone who would come in contact with them to be wearing a mask at all times (waiters/driver/etc.). They won’t miss the wedding for anything, so we are doing our best to include them and keep them safe!

    Myself, 2 bridesmaids and groom did not wear a mask during the ceremony. No one wore mask during photos but everyone wore mask during reception except when we cut our cake.
    All guest were required to wear mask at least during the ceremony but they kept them on throughout the night except to drink or eat.

    Ok thats cool. In my state masks are required for any indoor gatherings unless eating/drinking or in a private residence.

    Did you get in contact with them? Did they tell you that you and your FH have to wear masks?
