#blissfulsavvybride #medhat #twoarebetterthanone #supportlocal Precautions that can keep wedding guests safe during the pandemic Happy couples planning to tie the knot in 2020 confronted a challenge they likely never saw coming. While many couples fear inclement weather on their wedding days, 2020's prospective brides and grooms had to contend with something far more fearful than rain clouds. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus that began in the winter of 2019-20 and was ultimately declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization put many couples' wedding plans in peril. In an effort to stop the spread of the virus and protect those most vulnerable to it, governments across the globe placed restrictions on social gatherings, including weddings. Those restrictions prompted some couples to postpone their nuptials until 2021, while others tied the knot at considerably smaller ceremonies than they initially planned for. Now here we are, a full year since the first restrictions were put into place, and we were asked to self-isolate. What a rollercoaster it has been! While the 2021 wedding season still holds a wealth of uncertainty, with the recent introduction of the COVID vaccine, there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. As restrictions start to lift, and hope blooms with the anticipation of being able to gather with some of your closest friends and loved ones, here are a few precautions we recommend you consider, to keep you & your guests safe: • Confirm current regulations. Restrictions related to COVID-19 can change from one week to the next. In order to minimize your stress, and maximize your planning success, come up with several options to choose from, based on what gathering restrictions are allowed. Whether it's having a "come-and-go" style event, or arrangements to accommodate 25, 50 & 100 guests, take a some time to brainstorm ideas that would work best for you. Chatting with a professional isn't a bad idea either, many of our wedding vendors have already begun figuring out how to pivot their events to work with their couples' needs. • Keep guests up to date about precautions.
