Getting married after 2020 might look a little different than it ever has before, but it doesn’t mean there can’t be new, incredible experiences to create. As a bride and groom planning on tying the knot during COVID-19, you are in a unique position to change and upgrade the traditions of the past into something completely new, fun and glamorous!
Here are some of the ways you can reinvent old traditions at your wedding to make new memories. Remember, this is a special time in your life to cherish every moment as you live through it and keep the cherished experiences close to your heart for generations to come.
Consider New Photography Options
In addition to the couple’s photoshoot, most couples also have a list for the photographer to capture group photos at the event. If you’re trying to think of a new way to get all of these important people in your memories for the day while still keeping safe distance orders, why not choose all-new photography options. Like using a drone to capture larger groups from an aerial view or leaving old school disposable cameras at the table for people to take their group shots. You can even invent a hashtag for social media and encourage guests to use it to easily locate photos from the big day.
Redesign the Dancefloor
One of the best parts of any wedding celebration is the dancefloor. A chance to cut loose, have fun, and just simply have an amazing time! But even if you can’t get crowded in one space anymore, that doesn’t mean you still can’t offer a fun and intimate way for guests to enjoy the DJ and the music. Consider redesigning the dancefloor. Instead of gathering everyone in the center, leave open spaces by each table dedicated to them where they can dance in clusters. Or create groups and sections on the dance floor so that crowding does not occur and fun can still happen.
Reinvent the Guest Receiving Line
In most traditional weddings, guests would line up to create a special passageway for the newlyweds to enter through. This created a devoted space for their first appearance as a married couple but it also provided a way for the couple to greet and thank all of their guests for coming and joining in the festivities. With social distancing top of mind, this might not be the best way to mingle and greet your loved ones. But it doesn’t mean it can’t happen. Simply reinvent how you say thanks. Give a special speech when you first walk in, go around to each table separately or encourage air kisses. Whatever way you want to say hello and thanks, create that “new” way for your event!
