1. Downsize the Full Wedding
This most common restriction I’m seeing, all over the world, is a guest limit. Limiting the number of attendees to your absolute nearest and dearest is a very common adjustment couples are making. Largescale celebrations with extended friendship circles can still happen after the fact and having your guestlist culled to your innermost circle isn’t the worst compromise in the world.
2. Elope & Have a Party Later
Moving forward with an elopement on your date. Whether it be with just you two or with a small intimate group. The beauty of elopements is that they are extremely flexible and can happen anywhere without venue restrictions. You can elope at the beach, in the mountains, or even at that picnic spot where you went on your first date, check out Brides.com guide to Elopements. There is something romantic about letting nothing stop you from making that commitment on the day you had planned, letting your love shine through the darkness, and then celebrating it all with a larger scale event once we are all allowed to again.
3. Change your Destination Wedding to a Local One
If you and your guests were planning to travel interstate or internationally to your wedding and this is a source of anxiety, perhaps there is a way to shift the Wedding closer to home. If you need help finding a venue, I’m your man, I have a lot of resources and relationships with venues, vendors and Wedding Planners that I can draw on. There are so many amazing venues all over the place, some of the best are the ones the least people know about.
While all options will require an up to date understanding of current laws and restrictions, safety is no doubt the biggest priority of all. I will be complying with social distancing and hygiene protocols to ensure whatever the date entails, it will be a safe one.
