How to Have a Socially Distanced Wedding

There is no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world around us. Face masks, social distancing and frequent use of hand sanitizer are all part of our daily lives. A lot remains unclear and if you are planning a wedding, you will have to keep the current situation in mind.


Social distanced weddings might look different. But you can still enjoy a wonderful reception and ensure that you protect people attending. Here’s a look at some of the things you should keep in mind when planning a socially distanced wedding in Mooresville.


Limit the guest list and go online

Depending on the social distancing guidelines in place at the time of your wedding, you may need to cut your guest list. It’s important to start talking to your wedding venue early to understand the restrictions.


You should consider limiting the guest list to your closest friends and family. You can incorporate guests to your wedding in other ways, such as going online! It’s possible to livestream your wedding on a laptop or tablet. It will allow those wedding guests that can’t attend the option to still enjoy your big moment.


Organize an outdoor wedding


Social distancing rules are different for outdoor venues. The germs can’t pass as easily in an outdoor setting and therefore, it’s a good idea to consider holding an outdoor wedding. You have lots of options from backyard weddings to beautiful rustic weddings at a local NC farmhouse.


Serve plated meals

Buffet style catering can be a bit difficult to organize. The safer option is to provide plated meals to your wedding guests. You can have staff serve meals following safety guidelines. Guests can sit at the table and enjoy a bit of extra luxury!


You might also want to skip the tiered wedding cake. Have miniature cakes or opt for quirky cake alternatives. Donuts, cupcakes and muffins are a fun alternative and they can ensure your guests are not all slicing the same things!


Snap a lot of photos


Capture the moment by taking as many photos as possible. Since your wedding guests have to keep a distance to each other, photobooth is a fun way to get everyone involved. Guests can take individual photos and post them on social media. Everyone can get involved with the fun safely! Our NC photobooth is an open-air model so you don’t have to worry about people cramping into a tight space.


Face masks and sanitizer as a wedding favor

Depending on the rules in your area and the time of your wedding, wearing face masks can be a good idea. Masks help slow the spread of this virus and you should ask your wedding guests to wear one, especially indoors.


Make wearing it a little more fun by creating custom face masks. You could include the wedding date or your initials in the mask and have them made in fun colors, for example.


Another good wedding favor idea is to provide tiny hand sanitizer bottles for your guests. You can print custom labels and help your wedding guests enjoy your big day safely!
