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

Organizing a wedding is stressful as it is, but with the added pressure of adapting to the changing norms and new rules, regulations, and health and safety measures because of the unprecedented changes happening on the global scale, planning a wedding will totally be another feat. It should come as no surprise that wedding parties that used to be grand and over the top festive events with large gatherings will not be the norm again for at least the next couple of months. Couples who were looking forward to their spring or summer wedding had to unfortunately cancel or postpone their celebrations due to the strict lockdown and social distancing restrictions. However, with everything gradually coming back to life as the world begins to open up again after the lockdown, having a fantastic wedding party is not completely off the table if you are willing to tweak things up a bit. That being said, whether you are thinking of getting hitched to the love of your life this year or you have postponed your big day until things settle down, planning a wedding during and after the pandemic will likely be a little out of your comfort zone taking you back to the drawing board.

If you’ve been the one looking after the wedding planning checklist, chances are that you may be feeling overthrown due to the situation at hand. Like many other bride-to-be’s, you might be having a hard time thinking about where to start and how to plan a wedding post COVID-19 while keeping your big day as risk free as possible. But don’t you worry, we have listed some key pointers to help you adapt to the new reality and prepare you for what to expect when planning your wedding after the pandemic. Read on and discover creative wedding planning tips and ingenious wedding ideas to make your dreams come true whilst ensuring that your guests have the best time at your special day.

Look for Suitable Wedding Venues

To begin with, it is important that every aspect of your wedding is in compliance with the social distancing rule. Therefore, the wedding venue must be quite spacious so that you can accommodate your guests comfortably at a safe distance and let them mingle and roam about freely without worrying about being too close. If you had booked an indoor space for your nuptials or were thinking of touring one, it’s time to reconsider your options and opt for an outdoor wedding venue instead to avoid cramming people where there is no ventilation and limited airflow. Shifting your wedding party to an open space such as a beach, farm, or a woodland forest is something worth taking into consideration to allow your guests room to follow distancing without compromising on the fun aspect. After all, who likes being cooped up inside for the entire day. However, if a complete outdoor setup doesn’t fit in your wedding plans, use a venue that offers an open area as well that can be utilized for different sections of the day. For instance, you can create a gorgeous wedding arbor outside using our heavy-duty backdrop stands and exquisite wedding backdrop decorations to say your vows under the sky for a magical experience or you can set up a fun photo booth and have your reception drinks on the lawn.

Reduce your Headcount

In accordance with the government’s guidelines, small scale weddings with only close friends and family members in attendance will take preference. Reducing your guest list to only your loved ones will surely turn your wedding into an intimate affair and your wedding party might look a little different than the usual grand wedding celebrations but the love, joy, and festivity will still be the same as you’ll be surrounded by the most important people in your life. However, if you want to share your happiness with everyone you know, you can host a virtual wedding and live stream your nuptials to make them part of your special day. Pen down heartfelt messages and mail them to your virtual wedding guests along with lovely wedding favor gifts from our online store for a lovely personalized touch.

Spread out Your Seating Arrangement

Moving forward in this new-found reality where maintaining physical distance is crucial, it’s a no brainer that the traditional wedding seating arrangements will no longer work. Wedding planners and venue organizers will have to figure out a creative yet practical ceremony and reception seating arrangement. Grouping guests together by households is a safe way to limit social interaction at the reception party. However, creating a distant seating arrangement for the wedding ceremony is going to throw some spanners into the works. You can either arrange the chairs to form a circle or semi-circle or you can opt for the usual seating arrangement but with spaced out chairs. Are you planning to keep the ceremony short? Let your guests stand in allotted distanced spots. Use our metal hoops and decorate them with floral garlands to create beautiful standing spots for your guests. If you are open to unique wedding ceremony ideas, how about tying the knot in a drive-in themed wedding ceremony! Set up a huge screen and let your guests sit in their cars to witness the magical moments when you finally say “I do” for a less interactive and whimsical experience.

Moreover, you can also create a seating space similar to the reception party and assign the entire table to members of the same family 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. Position and separate tables to maintain the recommended distance between guests. This is where choosing a spacious wedding venue will come in handy and make it easier to space out your wedding tables.

Prioritize Hygiene, Health, and Safety

Abiding by the health, hygiene, and safety measures will surely be a top priority for couples trying to make their wedding day as safe as possible. Let your guests know beforehand if you expect them to wear face masks and gloves so they can make necessary arrangements. You can also provide customized or fancy face masks to your guests at the rehearsal dinner or hand them before they enter the venue to reinforce the event’s color scheme or theme. Moreover, opt for cute little hand sanitizing spray bottles and embellish them with thematic decorative accessories such as seashells, mini artificial flowers, pearl strings, or stick-on rhinestone gems along with escort card tags mentioning table numbers and guest’s names giving them their very own sanitizing solution to keep their hands clean throughout the event. Furthermore, encourage your guests to practice proper hand hygiene and set up hand sanitizing stations. Also, have plenty of disposable gloves available in bathrooms and easy to spot places as they need to be changed often.

Choose a Safe Dining Set up

With stringent safety measures coming into effect, the trend of having buffet stations and family-style shared food platters will no longer be viable. Individual food servings where there is no risk of people touching the same spoons or getting too close to the food will gain popularity. Using our premium quality designer disposable dinnerware is the perfect way to elegantly present plated meals to your guests with the convenience of tossing them into the trash after the wedding party to limit any potential contact.
