All over the world people are struggling to figure out what to do next when it comes to their wedding. They had planned and done a lot of hard work to map out the steps for a perfect wedding and honeymoon and the only thing that could have gotten in the way was a global pandemic. So, how do you have a wedding during Covid-19?
Although your wedding planning is certainly facing a stiff challenge, it can still be done. It may not look the way you had originally imagined, but you do have options still.
The word eloping is rarely used these days as it used to have a connotation that meant to get married in secret. Back in the old days, families used to be far more involved in the decision of who and when to marry. Which is why some people chose to rebel and run off to get married.
These days, that is not much of an issue so eloping is a word that has fallen out of fashion. However, many people are opting for a wedding that involves only the bride, groom and a justice of the peace.
And during a pandemic in which social distancing is a must, this is becoming an option for many that wouldn’t have considered it otherwise. The benefits are that you can choose a spot just about anywhere. Just take a look at the Moab elopement guide to get an idea of just how grand an elopement wedding can be.
If you’re in the early stages of planning …
Maybe you are only just now putting pen to paper when it comes to planning so you don’t have much in the way of reservations made. If this is the case, then your best option is to prolong the engagement. This lets you get to the nitty gritty of booking venues and photographers until the virus is under control and gatherings are allowed again.
If you already have reservations made, then you can either cancel them or postpone. Postponing is the best option as the event planner is usually a small business that could use the money. If you cancel you may also lose your deposit. Everybody understands the situation as it stands now. So they will be willing to work with you in putting your plans on hold.
Use the internet
You’re going to be relying on the internet for just about everything right now, including finding the perfect wedding dress. Luckily there are a lot of websites that use AI to help you find the right look for you.
You can take a quiz that helps identify the best look for your wedding during Covid-19. This replaces what a person would do if you were in store. The experience may not be the same, but the results will be. And this is a decent option considering that many of these stores are closed for the foreseeable future.
Whatever you plans are for a wedding during Covid-19 we hope that your plans come to fruition!
