Social Distancing Wristbands

Someone shared this with my FH earlier and he sent it to me. Our wedding is small so I don’t know that it’s worth even bothering, but maybe it would make some interactions easier 🤷‍♀️. Anyone doing anything similar for guests to identify how comfortable they are with interactions?

    I haven’t seen this idea before. I could see this work with button pins too so it is more visible. If a guy is wearing a suit I can see those wristbands get hidden by the sleeve cuff. Thanks for the shared idea! 💡

    This might work better with magnetic buttons. Men's suit jackets will cover their wrists and you have the potential for people to space out and forget what they are for or what the colors mean.

    I love this idea! One of my biggest issues lately is not knowing someone’s comfort level when it came to finally seeing loved ones again and them not knowing mine. I think this is great and will allow guest to have their comfort level stated without having to say it over and over.

    I like the idea of using pins, especially so they don’t get hidden. I think I’d just go with two colors though, the red strikes me as “don’t even talk to me!”

    I think it’s a good idea and so creative! My dad just called me to tell me a friend of his went to a wedding recently with these and the guests liked it. Thanks for sharing!!!

    Good to know, I was wondering how many guests would actually participate. I’m sure every group is different, but at least we tried to make people more comfortable. My mom was really sarcastic about it when I sent it to her 🙄.

    Excellent idea!

    I feel like this could be useful in so many other situations, too.

    My fiancé and I love this idea and we’re like we could put our wedding hash tag on the bands. Then my mom was like I don’t understand bc everyone is supposed to be social distancing lol. I think I’ll probably still do it though.

    That is brilliant! Definitely something new to me. We just might if this keeps up in February. I'm going to talk to FH about it. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm totally into this!! 🙌

    As a guest I'd love this - it would make me feel much more comfortable about attending but not hugging everyone!

    I like the idea of putting your hashtag on them, it’s another little reminder for people to use it!

    This is a very smart idea. I would love to see any other ideas or hear how it goes if anyone does something like this!

    I think this is an excellent idea however a blurb should be added to indicate which wrist band would fall under those guests who are ok with photos being taken together in groups, esp. if presumably masks are being removed during that time. (I'm guessing it falls into the green wrist band category?)

    Does anyone know where to find colored magnetic buttons for this purpose? I'm having trouble finding any because I don't know what to search for.
