When Life Gives You Corona, Grab a Lime

As we all know this year has been unlike anything else we have all experienced. There has been more than one thing that has happened that will be in history books. Like many other couples who planned to get married this year they have had to rethink almost everything they had already planned and paid for, for their wedding day.


Thankfully many vendors and venues have worked with couples and they have been able to postpone their special day to a later date. However some couples are still choosing to get married on their expected wedding date. Here are some ways AMW couples have dealt with Covid-19 on their wedding days.


Elopement

Although having all your friends and family at your wedding is traditional having a small elopement can be even more special. With having an elopement or micro wedding you will have more time for photos and spend less money on making sure you have enough food for everyone that was invited. Elopements can be just you, your groom or bride, your officiant and of course your amazing planner or it can include your immediate family.



Micro Wedding

Along with eloping many of our AMW couples have had micro weddings. They have had a small ceremony consisting of only their closest family and friends. Then in place of the reception they had a sit down meal where everyone is able to join around the table and celebrate the happy couple.



Fun Sayings on your Koozies

Some of our other couples have made light of a heavy situation with fun sayings on their Koozies and signs around their venue. Other couple's have had personal sanitizers on the welcome table with a cute sign that says "to have and to hold so you don't get a cold."



Other Ideas to Help Make Your Guests Feel at Ease

  • Offer masks and/ or gloves at your welcome table.

  • Have different colored wristbands so guests can choose their comfort level.

  • If you decide to postpone send out change the date cards so your guests know you still want them to join you on your special day.

  • Be sure to communicate effectively with your vendors so that you can be on the same page with new safety protocols.
