It’s understandable if you’re currently experiencing mixed feelings about your big day. From social distancing to catching Covid-19, hundreds of couples across the United States have opted out of their 2020 wedding, moving the big day to 2021 instead.
…But if you are among those who have found alternative ways to approach your wedding, your most recent web searches may have led to you to this very article. From hosting the event via Zoom or Facebook with family members and friends to making the entire process private, getting married and staying safe during the pandemic has proven just as important. Wedding Live Streams is already practicing safety as recommended by CDC procedures!
Below are some preventive tips to consider if you’re still set for the remaining months of 2020:
1. Trust your gut feeling (and remember your priorities). The most life changing event of your life is in a matter of weeks and you’re still feeling conflicted. Your most recent thoughts: ‘What if I get sick?’ and ‘Will this be as exciting as a normal wedding?’ What matters most is your health and the memories you’ll make on YOUR big day. If you feel as though live streaming with your guests won’t make the cut, or if you’re currently feeling as if you’ll only feel regretful for not waiting for a post-pandemic wedding, it’s probably best to reschedule for the sake of your own happiness.
2. If you are live streaming with a professional, consider inquiring more on their sanitation procedures and regards for social distancing. Your big day should be a straightforward just as it is exciting for you and your spouse. As goes any collaboration, ensuring the team (or individual) you’ve hired respects your regards of the pandemic can prevent future miscommunication and disagreement.
3. When choosing a venue, consider at least two alternative options. Weather and closures in relation to the pandemic have made it harder for many couples to agree on a venue. Regardless of your final choice, and even if it’s just you and your spouse, it’s always good to have at least two alternative wedding plans to ensure you’ll still be getting the most out of your big day.
4. Stay in tune with your vendors, wedding planner (if you have one), and the latest headlines. Even if your wedding planner suggests otherwise, it’s important to keep in mind that any decision regarding your wedding should be of your best interest. If you do decide to reschedule, be sure to immediately inform all those involved along with your plans of moving forward in the coming months.
