Planning a Wedding During COVID-19

Planning a wedding in preparation for a possible outbreak of the coronavirus, also known as the flu pandemic, is difficult. While you certainly shouldn’t completely avoid all non-essential travel during this time, you do have to prioritize your wedding planning so that you can better focus on the most important things such as your honeymoon. Fortunately, here are some tips to help you plan a successful wedding during COVID-19.

Find the Right Wedding Officiant

Unfortunately, couples often think last about hiring a minister to officiate their weddings.  After all, without a minister to officiate the wedding can not occur!  Do not delay in locating a minister.  There are many things which need to be worked out such as scheduling, availability, and pricing.

Be sure to get plenty of rest.

Since so many people attend weddings in a short amount of time, getting a good night’s sleep will greatly reduce your chances of contracting the virus.  Once you’ve gotten enough rest, take some time off to organize your wedding.

Make a list of everything that needs to be done, and then plan out the wedding in stages.

This will save you from having to start from the beginning of your day at the church and then work back to the reception. This method will also make it easier for you to keep your focus because you’ll be able to read over your list and make adjustments wherever necessary. As you go through your checklist, make sure to bring in the wedding favors and decorations from earlier in your plans. Also bring your gifts for your guests, but don’t worry too much about them being used right away. Instead, you can hold onto them until the last minute.

Once you have everything you need for your wedding in place, you are ready to plan a wedding in COVID-19! Keep in mind that there is still a risk of an outbreak, so take some precautions to reduce your risk. Always stay healthy by drinking plenty of water and exercising every day.

    • Take a shower or bath right after washing your hands,
    • Keep yourself hydrated by drinking lots of fluids.

These simple tips will go a long way toward helping you plan a successful wedding in preparation for COVID-19!
