There has never been a more stressful time to be a bride. With a huge amount of uncertainty casting a dark cloud over your special day and countless restrictions dictating your planning, there is no doubt that you are feeling anxious and frustrated as the event draws nearer. Fear not, though, if you have always dreamt of a lavish, over-the-top celebration. Here is a helpful guide to planning a luxurious wedding during the times of COVID, all while adhering to relevant restrictions and safety protocols.
Splurge on the extras.
It is true that you will not be able to invite everyone on your extensive guest list. Try to change your perspective regarding this. You now have the opportunity to plan an intimate wedding with your nearest and dearest with a lot more money to spend on a few luxurious extras. You can select a more beautiful wedding venue, order the fanciest, most delicious wedding food for your guests, spend that little bit more on your dream dress, and hire the best bartending services that Denver has to offer, such as eventbartenders.com.
Consider a virtual wedding.
If a significant number of your guests have opted not to attend the big event due to fears concerning safety, or if gatherings are currently prohibited as part of lockdown restrictions where you are situated, you will be faced with two options. The first is to postpone your special day—a reality with which no bride or groom should ever be faced with. The second is to proceed as planned and to broadcast the wedding virtually. That way, everyone who was supposed to be there to celebrate in your love and future together can still do so no matter where they are in the world.
Design custom wedding masks.
Masks are a bit of a downer, but they are an absolute must for curbing the spread of the COVID-19 virus, which is why no wedding should be without them. There will be times during the day when you and your partner can remove them, such as when posing for photographs outdoors or when sitting down to eat—but for everyone’s safety, it is wise to wear them any time you are in close contact with any guests.
Make the most of a bad situation by having some masks custom-made to match your wedding dress and your partner’s attire. You can also have custom wedding masks made for your bridal party in the colors of your chosen theme. While it might not feel like the ideal situation right now, your wedding photos will certainly have a story to tell 20, 30, or 40 years from today when COVID is (hopefully) but a distant memory.
More importantly than anything else, just breathe. With so much going on around you, you still deserve to savor this wonderful time in your life. Make peace with the fact that there is very little that you can control right now and do your best to go with the flow. Regardless of when or how it happens, your wedding day will still be the most special day of your life if you are determined to enjoy every moment.
