Plan Your Post-COVID Wedding


After weddings and events were canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic, happy couples are now free to tie the knot once again. Following an unexpected extension of the restriction, the Government confirmed that weddings could take place earlier this month.

While couples will need to adhere to some rules and regulations in order to prevent the virus from being transmitted, you can get back to planning your nuptials. As many couples were unsure whether their wedding would be able to go ahead, there are thousands of people making last-minute plans to celebrate their big day.

To ensure you’ve got everything covered, take a look at this ultimate checklist for your post-COVID wedding celebrations…

1. Check venue regulations

All wedding venues must adhere to the national and local rules that are in place, but some venues may have imposed their own guidelines too. Similarly, individual venues will be finding their own ways to implement the national rules, so do talk to your wedding coordinator in advance.

Once you know exactly how the venue is responding to the changing restrictions, you can begin to plan your day accordingly. Some rooms may no longer be available for weddings, for example, so there might be slight changes to what your venue can offer.

2. Confirm DJ availability

One of the most important aspects of your big day is the music you choose. When you’re walking down the aisle, having your first dance and celebrating with loved ones, you’ll want the music you love to be the soundtrack. However, don’t assume that your chosen DJ will be available if you’ve been forced to postpone or rearrange your nuptials.

Like everyone in the industry, DJs have been significantly affected by the shutdown. Now that events can get underway once again, their services are in high demand. To ensure you get your first-choice wedding DJ, contact them as soon as you know what date your wedding will be held on. This will give you the chance to confirm their availability and discuss your plans for your ceremony and celebration.

3. Modify the catering

One of the trickiest aspects of planning a post-COVID wedding is the catering. Many couples choose to serve a sit-down meal at their wedding, but this may not be a viable option in the current climate. Social distancing requirements mean that people from different households shouldn’t be in close proximity to one another. This means seating people at tables of eight or ten won’t be permitted.

Furthermore, caterers may need additional space in the kitchens to ensure their staff can operate safely and in accordance with the social distancing requirements. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t serve fantastic food on your big day. With innovative seating plans, buffet options, and canapé receptions, you can adhere to the relevant guidelines and still ensure guests are treated to a sublime selection of food.

4. Check your attire

If your ceremony was due to be held earlier this year, you’ll want to ensure that your wedding finery still fits and doesn’t require any last-minute alterations. Many people have embraced new fitness routines during the lockdown, so you might find that dresses and suits need to be adjusted slightly. Conversely, others have honed their cooking skills while they’ve been stuck inside, so their outfits may need to be let out in order to ensure they’re comfortable on the big day.

Remember – all wedding professionals are experiencing high demand at the moment, including tailors, dressmakers, and seamstresses. Ask everyone in the bridal party to try on their outfits as soon as possible, so that changes can be made if they’re required.

5. Adjust the guest list

Although weddings are now permitted to take place, there are limits on how many people you can invite. Unfortunately, this may mean you need to cut down your guest list. This can be difficult, particularly if you had your heart set on celebrating with extended family members, friends, and colleagues. However, the vast majority of people are fully understanding of the situation and won’t be offended when you need to adjust your guest list.

If you want to ensure that your loved ones can still witness the ceremony and take part in your celebrations, why not opt for a live video link instead?

Celebrating in Style

Your post-COVID wedding may look a little different than you originally intended but there’s no need to be disheartened. After months of uncertainty, the news that weddings can once again be conducted means you can tie the knot and finally make your partner your spouse.
