- Invite virtually
- Live stream your ceremony
- Switch up your timeline
- If your venue has room in the parking lots, here’s a few ideas to keep up social distancing and see the people you love. Move your cake cutting/first dance out into the lot! Ask guests that are immunocompromised, or otherwise unable to attend to grab a spot in the lot to see a part of your wedding day.
- You can also assign a time for your send-off for all those waiting outside. You and your sweetheart can drive away together, you can be greeted by drive-by signs/horns and waving from everyone who would’ve wanted to cheer you on if they could have.
- Include a family recipe
- Does your grandma make the most delicious Apple Pie?
- Aunt Jo make killer chocolate chip cookies?
- This would make you feel that much closer to your family if you had them next to your wedding cake.
- Ask for love notes from loved ones ahead of time
- A great replacement for a traditional guest book.
- Pour a glass with friends and family
- Pick a time for virtual speeches
- Allow for in person speeches as well and make sure they are included on zoom
- Everyone can pour a glass from home and cheer with you!
All of these tips are a great way to allow friends to celebrate you in person while keeping that social distance. Also, this way, they can be there while you two share those sweet moments.
