Hello lovely people! I would like to require vaccinations for ALL of my guests, but both of my parents are unvaccinated and will not get the vaccine. So I have instead opted to require a negative test within 3 days or vaccination. How do you keep track of the negative tests so close to your wedding? I assume some sort of spreadsheet, but with so many other last-minute details going on how have you handled this?
If you have people checking for negative tests at the door, make sure to have a plan for when people show up who either didn’t get a test, or forgot their result. Also, someone posted these tips, I can’t find the thread but they are really helpful!
Was wondering the same thing because requiring negative tests is my plan also. I don’t think that testing once your guests are already at the venue is a good idea because at that point they are already there. That means someone would have to be responsible for turning them away if they come up positive. I intend to have my guest send me (or a designated person) a copy of their negative slip 72-48 hrs before my wedding so that way it is already taken care of before wedding day. Hope that helps.
We’re doing a lot of the precautionary things listed above! Another is wearing masks through the buffet line.
I did the same for my June wedding. The week of the wedding I sent guests a Dropbox link to upload their vaccination cards or negative test to. It was real easy. Even our older guests were able to use it. Everyone cooperated and uploaded to the link and we had a fun comfortable wedding with zero to no stress
I just went to a wedding where everyone had to be vaxxed. The groom's own sister refused so she was disinvited. I can understand it's very difficult to turn away your parents though. Perhaps you can make your wedding available to stream online for people who are not willing/able to take the necessary precautions.
