  • Provide Customized Face Masks for The Wedding

One of the best ways to encourage your wedding guests to stay safe while celebrating your special day with you is by creating customized face masks they will use at your wedding.

When face masks are readily available at your wedding entrance, your guests will be left with no option but to put on the provided face masks.

The face masks can be made beautiful and attractive by applying your wedding color palette to them. Make sure you encourage your guests to keep them on throughout the wedding ceremony-except when eating, of course!


  • Consider A Unique Sitting Arrangement

The easiest way to encourage and maintain social distancing at your wedding is through the sitting arrangement. How you set up the seats at your wedding will determine how close or far apart your guests will be from each other on your wedding day.

There are so many unique ways you can arrange your sitting arrangement. If you are considering soft sitting styles for the wedding, you can minimize the number of guests sitting on a sofa to two or three depending on the size. You can also reduce the number on your reception table to four or six to create a reasonable space between your guests.


  • Reconsider Your Dining Option

The dining style at your wedding is also a very important factor to consider. Plated meals are wonderful at this period instead of buffet styles. Your catering staff can serve at each table while maintaining social distancing rules. By doing so, your wedding guests won’t have to serve themselves at your wedding reception, so they won’t need to get too close to each other.


  • Minimize Guests’ Trips to The Bar

While letting your guests mingle around your wedding venue and visiting the bar as many times as they wish may sound great for your wedding, this might not be the best of ideas with COVID-19 still hanging around us.

Minimize the rate of physical contact between your guests. This can be done easily when you assign beverages to staff to attend to your guests’ needs. This way, the staff can provide the drinks without your guests needing to leave their assigned tables to get it themselves.
