Ingenious Tips on How to Plan a Wedding after COVID-19

Planning and organizing a wedding can be overwhelming and taxing at the best of times, but with the unprecedented changes happening all over the world, it will be a whole new ballgame. It comes as no surprise that wedding parties as we know them—grand, over the top festive events with all the close and distant family members and friends in attendance, won’t be the quite the same for the next couple of months, to say the least. Couples who had a spring or summer wedding planned this year had to cancel or postpone their events in light of the strict lockdown and social distancing restrictions. However, with everything slowly coming back to life as cities start to open, having an amazing wedding party can still be on the cards if you are willing to change things up a bit. That being said, with the newly set rules and regulations, guest list restrictions, social distancing, and extreme hygiene and safety measures, planning a wedding during and even after the pandemic is surely going to take you back to the drawing board.

If you’ve been handling the wedding planning checklist all by yourself, chances are you might be feeling a little more than overwhelmed by the situation at hand. Are you thinking about where to start and how to plan a wedding post COVID-19? Don’t fret! We have put together key pointers to prepare you for what to expect when planning for your wedding after COVID-19 and how to adapt to this new reality. Read on and explore some amazing tips and ingenious wedding ideas to make your big day celebrations as safe as it can be whilst ensuring that your guests have a great time at your wedding!

Choose New Wedding Locations

First things first, to comply with the ever so important social distancing rule, it is essential that you have enough space at your wedding venue that you accommodate your guests comfortably and let them mingle safely. If you had an indoor venue in mind for your nuptials, it’s time to rethink your choices and opt for an outdoor wedding venue instead where it is easier for guests to maintain physical distance and they are free to roam about without worrying too much about their safety which might dull down all the fun and joy of attending a wedding. Shifting your wedding party from an indoor venue where there is limited ventilation and no airflow to an open space such as a beach, farm, or a woodland forest is something worth considering. However, if a complete outdoor setup isn’t possible, use a venue that offers an open space that can be utilized for different sections of the day. For instance, you can set up a gorgeous wedding arch outside using our heavy-duty backdrop stands and ethereal wedding backdrop decorations to say your vows under the sky for an enchanting experience or create a fun photo booth and serve reception drinks on the lawn.

Whittle down your Guest List

Moving forward, weddings are going to be more of an intimate affair now, either due to the government’s guidelines or because couples would want to reduce the potential impact of their big day. Reconsider your guest list and whittle it down to your closest friends and family members without whom your wedding will seem incomplete. While your wedding ceremony and reception party might look a little different than the usual grand wedding celebrations, the love, joy, and festivity will still be the same as you’ll be surrounded by your loved ones. However, if you want to share this special day with everyone you know, host a virtual wedding by streaming your nuptials live to make them part of your big day. Choose lovely wedding favor gifts from our online store and mail them to those who can’t attend your wedding in person and pen down messages on customizable tags for a personalized touch.

Space out Seating Arrangement

In this age of social distancing, it’s a no brainer that the traditional wedding seating arrangements will no longer work. Wedding planners and organizers will have to find creative ways to arrange ceremony and reception seating spaces along with being more careful about grouping guests by households. Creating a distant seating arrangement for the ceremony will be the trickiest one. You can either adopt a circular or semi-circular arrangement with spaced out chairs and distanced rows and the couple in the center to allow everyone to get the best view or you can opt for the usual seating arrangement but with spaced out chairs to keep guests at a distance. If you are open to unique and out of the box wedding ceremony ideas, how about tying the knot in a drive-in themed wedding ceremony! Arrange a big screen and let your guests drive in and sit in their cars to witness the magical moments when you finally say “I do” for a less interactive but whimsical experience.

Moreover, you can also assign seats and tables to members of one family in the same way as you would for a reception party to keep social bubbles together and to avoid seating elderly guests or at-risk loved ones with someone who might be working in an exposed environment. Arrange tables at a proper distance to limit close interaction. This is where choosing a spacious wedding venue will work to your advantage.

Consider Health and Safety Precautions

Complying with the health, hygiene, and safety measures will surely be the primary concern as couples strive to make their wedding day as risk-free as possible. Opt for hand sanitizing spray bottles and creatively set them on your escort table with table numbers and guest’s names attached to the bottlenecks to provide your guests their very own sanitizing solution to keep their hands clean at all times during the wedding party. You can also embellish the hand sanitizers with decorative accessories to match with your wedding decorations and theme. For instance, use personalized ribbons to tie seashells or mini artificial flowers or wrap around pearl strings and use stick-on rhinestone gems to glam up your hand sanitizing bottles. Also set up hand sanitizing stations at your venue to encourage your guests to practice proper hand hygiene.

Furthermore, let your guests know beforehand if you expect them to wear face masks and gloves so that they are prepared and can arrange for suitable protective gear. However, if you are willing to go the extra mile or you have a color scheme set for your event, you can also choose to distribute fancy face masks to your guests at the rehearsal dinner or as soon as they arrive at the wedding for a chic look. Also have disposable gloves available at hand sanitizing stations, bathrooms, and other easy to spot places as they need to be changed often.

Create a Safe Dining Set up

Although buffets and family-style food setups have been a favorable option for couples, this trend is likely to lose its popularity as stringent safety measures come into effect. Dining options where guests are not touching the food or using the same spoons and flatware will be preferred. Our high-end disposable dinnerware is the perfect way to elegantly present plated meals to your guests which can then be tossed into the bin after the wedding party is over to limit any potential contact.
