covid Wedding

Hi everyone!
My fiancé and I are planning our dream wedding. It’s literally going to be a dream. We both want a big wedding and celebration. We work hard and we’ve been together for 4 years and we definitely deserve this but we’re still living in COVID times. What is an appropriate guest count now? Our wedding date is 12/31/2022 and we both have large families and we both are close with our families. Any advice on this? Go big and pray for the best or keep it really small with immediate family only? HELPPPPP!

    So much of this is going to depend on where you live, how covid restrictions work in your location and how comfortable you are gathering with people. In my area, big weddings are already happening again. My friend is a photographer and worked a wedding last weekend that had close to 200 guests.

    Your date is over a year away, so there’s really no way to predict how things will be that far out. In a lot of areas, big weddings are already happening! So if you are both dreaming of a large wedding, I would plan for one! Unless you are having a destination wedding, your invites won’t go out until 6-8 weeks before the wedding, so you have tons of time to alter your guest list if needed.

    You still have a lot of time. Seeing as how it's best to get a venue a year out, make sure they are flexible in case you need to cancel or make it smaller. Other than that, it really depends again, on where you live and what their covid policies are. Our wedding is in Los Angeles in February of next year and we are inviting 200 guests. However, our venue holds twice that number and we are requiring vaccination to attend. Also just have a back up plan. If things somehow deteriorate so bad, we are going to cut it down to 50 and do it in his cousins backyard Smiley smile

    I don't think anyone can predict right now how Covid will be next year. It's going to depend on so many factors.
