Other than our wedding date, COVID (HOPEFULLY) won't affect anything else with our wedding! We might include hand sanitizer in our hotel welcome bags just because, but if everything is back to normal in 2022, we'll be good to go! If not, we'll decide whether to postpone again or not, depending on how things are at that time.
Hi Mrs. Spring! Our original wedding was to be in in a gothic architectural church cathedral with cocktail hour on the water followed by a traditional ballroom reception. With outdoors being safer and the church allowing parents only, we had an outdoor rooftop ceremony followed by a reception outdoors under a white tent on the water (where only cocktail hour was to be).
Since the ceremony location changed to the same place as reception, no limo needed and no transportation for guests needed. Turned out to be an easier plan!! Don’t regret a thing ❤️🌸👰🏻♀️
Our 20 person wedding got moved into the biggest ballroom the venue had. Tables were more than 6 feet apart and the 8 person tables had 4-6 people at them. My best friend couldn’t come because of restrictions in CA, and my wife’s MOH didn’t bring her wife and child. Rows during the ceremony were 6 feet apart and everyone wore masks except during photos. Because we had such a small wedding, everyone voluntarily confined their movements two weeks before in order to protect others.
Hey! We are spacing people out more. Including masks and sanitizer. We are planning on having them on the chairs and not on a table for people to congregate around. The garter toss we are thinking of me not wearing the one that actually gets tossed. If you think about it pre-Covid days the garter would go from the bride to the parter to the eligible men and possibly on to another woman. Imagine all that contact tracing 🤪We are skipping that last parent entirely. Still trying to figure out a Covid Friendly bouquet toss.
It changed everything. We went from a 200+ person ceremony and reception at our venue to a 9 guest ceremony in a local park, brunch after, and adventure photo shoot in Yosemite a month later (5 plan changes altogether). Reception is planned at our venue for November of this year, but if restrictions don’t allow for the large event we would like, then we will simply forfeit our money paid and move on.
My BFF got married last September during the pandemic and what really changed was she had to change her ceremony exit from giving everyone individual bubbles to just having a bubble machine (can’t really give everyone bubbles to bubble individually by mouth during a pandemic like this)
We prioritized family and I'm kicking myself for not having invited some childhood friends. I wish I did. Consider that a percentage will say yes and not show up the day of. Please be very mindful of who you invite. It's a very special day to share.

Hi, this is what I did. We had 100 people and we had imperial tables. Groups who live together or hang out all the time were sat together. Or couples' chairs were placed really close and then a larger space between the next chair. Most of the wedding party got tested a week later and we are all negative. We had masks on the dancefloor and gel on the tables plus extra nasks

At my wedding, we had masks on the dancefloor and some guests were dancing table side. I loved that they just went with it. We also had a patio next to the venue and people were distancing dancing there
