I am in need of some serious advice. So my husband and I got married May 8th, 2020 which is our original date that we had planned. With essentially did a courthouse wedding with just his parents and grandparents. We moved our big celebration to September 4th, 2020 which is currently less than a month away. I have literally everything done and almost completely paid for so far. Decor rentals, venue fees, musicians, tuxedos, food. We are expecting between 40-45 guests at our wedding next month.
My biggest thing is that my sister, who is my best friend in the entire world, currently lives in Alaska on an island, and we are in South Carolina. We are quite literally on the opposite ends of the US. I had a deep conversation with her about traveling because she has to fly, and there is no less than 2 layovers she would have to take. One being Anchorage Alaska, the Seattle, to here.
My grandmother called her today and said that she didn’t think she should come. Not only for the risk of her getting sick, but her transmitting it to others. We thought about having my sister fly in one week prior, somewhat quarantine, get tested in time to get results back. I felt as though it would be safe enough with her wearing a protective mask (medical grade) while flying and at airports that she would be alright. I don’t know what to do. She said she’s a bit scared to fly and everything but is willing to in order to be there.
When she gets home from our wedding, back to Alaska, she is REQUIRED to get a Covid test, then self quarantine for 7-10 Days and get re-tested again to make sure it is not positive. Her husband (will not be attending) will have to find somewhere else to live during the time she quarantines because he is a medical profession on their island and would be forced to take time off with her if he would stay in their house together.
I really have no idea what to do. Any advice, input, whatever, helps. Thank you for reading my rant...
