Host your wedding outside

Weather can be unpredictable, but hosting both your ceremony and reception outside allows for easier social distancing and eliminates many of the risks associated with a large number of people in a confined space.

Give out face masks and hand sanitizer

The perfect favors for a COVID-19 wedding? Fun, fashionable face masks for every guest and personalized bottles of hand sanitizer. Not only are these gifts practical and consideration, but they’re something your guests can take home and continue to use.

Provide colored wristbands to indicate comfort with social contact

Your guests will likely have different needs and different levels of comfort with being around other people. To help everyone respect others’ comfort levels, you can use colored wristbands to indicate whether a person is comfortable being approached or not. For example, green could signal that a person is comfortable around others, while red could be there for those who want to keep their distance from other guests.

Make it intimate and live-stream the festivities

The best way to ensure your wedding is safe and your guests stay healthy is to limit your day to just your closest family members and friends. For everyone else, you can live stream your ceremony and even your reception so that all your loved ones can feel like they’re a part of your special day.u want to be able to dance the night away at the reception, right?

Encourage everyone to get tested

Because many people who have COVID-19 are asymptomatic, they could pass on the illness without even knowing they’re a carrier. That’s why you should ask all your guests and everyone involved in your wedding to get tested before the event. And those tests shouldn’t be last-minute as it can take a while to get results back. Encourage everyone to get tested well before the wedding and quarantine while they wait for results.
