Would you go to a wedding if sending a picture of your vaccine card or proof of vaccine was required to attend?

    Absolutely not. Personal beliefs or disbeliefs aside, it's not up to a bride or groom to make you and your family's medical decisions in order to attend their event.

    I would go because I’m already vaccinated, but I don’t agree with it nor would I get vaccinated just to attend.

    Agreed. I would politely decline if this was requested of me as a guest.

    BIG NOOOOOOOOOO because:

    1: I AGREE with Morgan;

    2: I am against all "anti-covid" vaccines but strongly against them.

    This is why partner and I won't attend a wedding, scheduled for nov, unless the B & G change their mind. I wouldn't even attend my twin sister's wed.

    Depends. I would go but I wouldn’t get the vaccine to specifically go to a wedding. I’m not vaccinated yet but my FH is. If only half the couple is vaccinated/invited, it’s likely both won’t go. I’m not eligible to be vaccinated yet and once it opens up to my group, it will probably take a while to since demand greatly exceeds the supply now.

    No. I am (partially) vaccinated, but would find it intrusive to be required to provide private medical information as a condition of attendance.

    People I know are lying about being high risk and nobody is checking, so I feel like it will be a long time until we get past that category and to the general population

    Absolutely not, and it would negatively impact my relationship with the couple.


    I don't think I'll be able to get it because I'm planning to TTC immediately after getting married and my doctor strongly recommends against it for pregnant women. I think people aren't getting it for a variety of reasons and it's a completely personal decision.
    If you need to ask your guests to get a medical procedure so you can feel safe, you shouldn't be hosting an event this year

    I would go, but I wouldn’t want to send a picture of my vaccination card. People are sharing pictures of the card without realizing the sensitive information on them (which vaccine, lot numbers, etc) so I would like them to take my word for it.

    I would because I'm already vaccinated. I'm pro vaccine but requiring a vaccine to attend a wedding is in poor taste to me.

    No, I wouldn’t. Even if I was vaccinated, I definitely wouldn’t be sending a copy of my vaccination card to anyone, just like I don’t send my friends my medical history reports after I go for my physical.

    No because I can't get the vaccine. I'm currently pregnant and plan on breastfeeding and because no studies have been done on pregnant or breastfeeding moms I refuse to get the vaccine. But even if I did get it, I don't think I'd be comfortable providing a copy of my vaccination card.

    No, I would not go to a wedding that I had to show medical proof to attend. Even though I am vaccinated, I feel like that is my business and not something I need to show to anyone. I also would not get vaccinated just to attend a wedding.

    No. I think it's ok to require a negative test or vaccine. But to tell people you invite that in order to attend they have to have a vaccine is just crossing the line. You don't know why people can't be vaccinated or why they don't want to do it and it's not your place to in a way force it on people.

    Exactly. It’s my business. Unless we start having to wear public indicators of vaccinations, my status is between my dr and me.

    I don’t mind attending a wedding/event where I have to flash my vaccine card to get in, but I would feel weird if the requirement was to send a photo of it to the couple.
