The Ultimate Checklist For Weddings During COVID19
Earlier this year, the coronavirus pandemic broke out and forced couples to make hard decisions about their wedding plans all over the world. To keep friends and family safe, so many couples canceled their weddings while some chose to postpone until the pandemic was over. However, with COVID-19 showing no true sign of subsiding anytime soon, most couples have decided to proceed with their preparations.
If you and your spouse have also made the decision to proceed with your wedding, then you’re most likely thinking of effective ways to implement safety measures during the ceremony. Well, to help you ensure your wedding is as safe as it is eventful during this period, we’ve put together this wedding checklist below!
● Hire additional staff to monitor CDC guidelines
To protect yourself and everyone else at your wedding, you need to ensure that your guests and staff are free of the virus. So when hiring caterers, photographers, florists, and DJs and other professionals for your big day, consider hiring additional staff to monitor CDC guidelines. This staff should include a nurse to check your guests’ temperatures upon arrival and someone to hand out sanitizers. You can also ask a relative, friend or a staff to ensure everyone is socially distancing during the ceremony.
● Prepare a sign-in sheet
For contact tracing, provide a sign-in sheet at the entrance of the venue for each person to write down their contact information. This sign-in sheet should include the date of the event and provide spaces for names, phone numbers and email addresses.
- Provide face masks
Taking pictures with face masks on may be a bit difficult so it’s understandable if you don’t fancy the idea. However, to keep your loved ones safe, face masks are necessary. Politely ask guests to bring face masks along, and have extras available for people who forget to do so. To keep things light, you can even provide masks with cute designs to double as your favor or plain masks just to have extras on hand.
● Provide sanitation stations
Providing sanitation stations at your wedding is a great way to lessen the risk of a virus spread. With these stations, your guests can comfortably sanitize their hands before walking into the wedding.
2 ● Choose between plated service and buffet service
Another thing to consider when planning your wedding is the safest meal serving method. You can opt for plated meals as they will limit contact between guests and vendors. However, with this method, you have to choose a menu that will appeal to everyone. If you want a variety of meals served at your wedding, consider a buffet service as it will provide your guests with options. Simply ensure that your guests practice social distancing and make use of gloves!
● Ensure seats are 6ft apart
Lastly, make sure that there is at least a 6ft gap between the seats at each table. This will help maintain social distancing and keep you and your guests safe!
