You’re not alone if Covid has forced you to plan and re-plan your wedding this last year. It may seem almost impossible to have a “safe” wedding AND have the wedding of your dreams. I can promise you, though, that it is possible.
Whether you’re looking for inspiration or reassurance, here are some tips — and some beautiful photos — for a covid safe wedding day. It’ll be great.
For this particular wedding, the ceremony took place in the church. It was a short, sweet ceremony — about 30-40 minutes.
The only guests in attendance were 7 close friends and family, including the officiant.
Now, you don’t have to only invite 7 people, but if your ceremony is indoors, consider making it VIP only.
If you’re eloping or not having a reception, this does not by ANY means you have to skimp on the wedding pictures. You can still walk away with a photo album full of memorable images, even if your wedding only lasts for 2 or 3 hours.
I’d recommend some getting ready photos if they’re important to you, and you should pick 2 or 3 favorite spots of yours as a couple.
Everything can be outdoors, and you get to make some new memories at your most nostalgic locations.
If you’re feeling anxious about if it’s even possible to have a covid-safe wedding, I’m here to tell you: yes you can.
It may not take place at an indoor banquet hall, and your guest list may have to go from 150 to 15, but I promise it’ll be just as special. Besides, this doesn’t have to be the *only* party you have to celebrate your wedding day.
When you think about it: a short ceremony with just close friends and family and a 2-3 hour photoshoot outside at the spot where you first met? Could it be more ideal, honestly?
