COVID-19 is here, we can’t change that but we can take measures to ensure a safe and comfortable wedding.


I’d like to share my precautions so far and invite you to share yours. Who knows maybe we’ll get ideas from one another to implement on our day. Because let’s be honest there is not enough information on hosting a safe wedding. Calling all brides who’ve already gotten married during COVID and those who are going to this year.


So far we have personalized masks for our guests


Masks for wedding party


Mask holders so guests can have a safe place to put their masks when eating


Silicone glass covers (mostly for preventing bugs but will do great to protect drinks from germs)


Glass stem labels


Socially distanced ceremony and reception seating (by households) What are your covid wedding safety precautions? 1What are your covid wedding safety precautions? 2

    For our big wedding in March, we are doing masks obviously when not eating or drinking, customized hand sanitizers as a favor, tables spaced out and cutting our guest count down some. I think that the mask holder idea is cute!

    The ceremony is indoors and the church is asking people to wear masks. They are also asking people be spaced apart.


    The reception is outdoors and at the moment we don't have plans to do anything differently, other than having servers serve the buffet instead of self-serving.

    We reduced our guest count, had the ceremony and reception outside, tables spaced apart and 5 people max per table. Provided hand sanitizer for everyone, matching masks for wedding party and we bought a box of masks for guests but they all had their own anyways.
    Masks worn unless actively eating/drinking obviously! I think the most important is to lead by example and then guests will follow!

    My daughter's Covid wedding was in August with the ceremony and reception outdoors. She had servers at the buffet, personalized hand sanitizers, same household tables spaced out, masks for guests (required except while eating/drinking), and temperature check upon entrance.

    What a great post idea!! In addition to those listed, we had wristbands (color was peach to match our wedding) that said “Toasting from six feet away”. I wrote a poem and framed it saying “those wearing a band of peach please stay at six foot reach”. Autoimmune guests or anyone could wear these as a reminder for others they are not hugging, etc.


    We had our bridal party announced individually at reception so no one would be touching.
    Although we had group photos, I did a lot of individual shots with one person (ex: me and bridesmaid, me and mom, etc.).
    We eliminated the receiving line and did a convertible send off waving to guests from afar.
    Instead of tossing my bouquet to my group of girls, I tossed my bouquet individually from the convertible to my little sister with special needs and she LOVED it!! My groom didn’t toss the garter.
    We eliminated a limo and had everyone drive individually to the salon to the wedding (luckily ceremony and reception were at the same spot).
    I had Panera to go meals for my bridal party after their salon appointments, they could take it and eat individually (salons are typically not allowing the mimosas and such inside). Our salon was phenomenal on safety and scheduled my girls staggered so not too many inside, took temperatures, wore masks and face shields, etc.
    We added a speech (my groom who thanked everyone and asked for healthcare workers to stand as we applauded). We added two significant dances (me and Man of Honor/my brother and groom and his grandmother) to minimize a packed dance floor.
    Hope this give ideas to others!!! ❤️

    Thanks for all of the posts! I’m getting married in May and I had some ideas but I definitely hadn’t thought of all of these great ones.

    My COVID safety precautions were downsizing to very few guests, getting married outside, then we will dine outdoors.

    We downsized from 250 to 25. We are getting married on a huge deck overlooking the ocean and there will be plenty of opportunity to socially distance. Cocktail hour will be passed appetizers and reception is a plated dinner. The reception is in a room that holds 120 people and seating will be 4 people per table (tables usually hold 6 to 8 people). All of the wedding sites (ceremony, cocktail hour and reception space) will be sprayed down with Microban and will have sanitation stations - wipes, Lysol and hand sanitizer. We will also be providing our guests with a personal sanitation pack in their welcome bags (they include an individually packed disposable mask, mask guard, personalized hand sanitizer and travel size Lysol.

    We were married a few weeks back and here are a few things we did and we had no cases of Covid arise from our wedding!!

    Masks for each guest.

    Hand sanitizer as "favor" (welcome to 2020 lol)

    Hand Sanitizer and new pens at Guest Book table with labeled jars and HS on Bar as well.

    5-7 people at 10 person tables with households being the 7 and non being the 5

    Masks required at ceremony (not those who stood)

    We also had a LARGE venue with a small guest count. Our ceremony room had a capacity of 150 seated and we had 26 seated with similar spaced out seating as your chart. Our reception room held 150 with 32 of us seated plus a huge veranda which we luckily got to use as it was unseasonably warm that day.

    This is so great. Your wedding was beautiful. I like the idea of having the wedding party sit down, so it’s not overcrowded in the front and everyone can keep their distance. Their masks are so pretty as well 😊
