The pandemic might have put the entertainment industry and celebrations on hold, but it won’t win over love! Now that the vaccine rollouts are yielding the results we had hoped for, you can finally resume the planning of your special day.
However, of course, things will be different and, instead of ignoring these differences, you should embrace them and create a memorable event out of it. Here are four tips you might consider to bring to life the perfect wedding party – but, if you wish to host an even more tailored event, maybe it’s time to look for a wedding planner!
Restrictions and testing requirements are changing on a daily basis, but one recommendation has remained the same throughout the past months: outdoor gatherings are safer than indoor ones.
So, do you really need to give up that perfect venue? Do you have to just make do with a small wedding in your garden or under the rain? The answer is no! If you wish to celebrate your wedding outdoors, the possibilities are endless!
You could consider a pool party, or book an exclusive location in a forest or at the heart of a local national park. Yes, you might need a specialized planner to help you with the details, but there is no doubt that your party would be memorable and unique.
Host a Multy-Day Event
A multi-day event can make a smaller event much more enjoyable! No, you won’t have to celebrate every day, but you can also use this mini-trip or weekend away to reconnect with your family and friends.
After all, during the months of isolation and various lockdowns, we have all missed out on so many important social events! Speak to your friends in advance to know whether this is something they would consider and turn your wedding celebrations into yet another lifelong memory you will speak about for years!
Keep Safety in Mind
Yes, the emergency related to the Covid-19 pandemic might be over in a few months or years – but you should not overlook the importance of introducing extra safety measures into your planning. In fact, the chances are that most of your guests will still hold fresh the memory of those first months of the pandemic.
And, it is your responsibility to ensure that they feel safe and protected. Some of the options you might consider include introducing social distancing, downsizing the wedding, hosting the party outdoors, and asking everyone to wear a mask in indoor locations.
You might also consider investing in antigen tests for everyone, so that you can be sure that everyone at the party does not carry the virus or has had the vaccine. While this might involve extra planning, you should enjoy your party without having to worry about the safety of your guests.
Hosting your wedding abroad might not be your average wedding idea, but it can be a way of celebrating the big return to travelling life. And, if you decide to combine your wedding party with your honeymoon, you can also enjoy a longer, more satisfying trip – and tick a dreamy destination off your bucket list.
