Don’t let the pandemic put a damper on your I do’s! The end is in sight for brides managing wedding planning during COVID-19. Here are some covid wedding reception ideas to keep in mind while finalizing the details that will maintain your guest’s safety while celebrating your love.
A temperature check when guests arrive is a practical option that can limit the possibility of inviting a guest in who is running a fever. While it would be unfortunate to have to turn anybody away, it’s in the best interest of ensuring your guests are safe. You should check in with your state’s specific mandates to ensure while you’re being safe, you’re also complying with the rules. Let your guests know prior to the day of your wedding that you’ll be checking temperatures before they arrive, so they know what to expect.
Hand sanitizer was the holy grail of the year 2020. Washing your hands is one of the best ways to limit your exposure to germs and bacteria that cause illness. Making sanitizing stations easily accessible for your guests is necessary in 2021, they can also be a cute addition if they follow your theme. You can also have small bottles readily available for guests to grab as a little extra.
Fewer guests means more fluid arrangements during the ceremony. Spacing ceremony chairs six feet apart may be your best bet. If that idea doesn’t fit your celebration, consider grouping close families together. This should go for your dinner seating too, keep households and families close as best you can, just to be on the safe side.
As the weather is warming up, it’s best to bring the celebration outside. Outside is still the safest place to be, although we know this may not be a possibility for every couple. If you do have the option to celebrate outside, you should certainly take it. This will help keep your guests comfortable and the stunning view will make them feel like they’re on vacation.
Together is a beautiful place to be, and we applaud you for moving forward with your wedding celebration. A wedding in 2021 is best celebrated tying the knot, sanitizing and social distancing! Cheers to celebrating safely.
