There is a whole lot to think about when planning for the day you will walk down the aisle. It’s your big day, and you want the best experience out of it, regardless of what is happening in the world. You deserve it.
In this coronavirus era, there are many moving parts, which can sometimes overshadow the big day. Currently, there is a broad vaccination campaign, and the expectation is that up to 70% of the population in the US may be vaccinated by October, and a sense of normality will be back.
That means things should be looking up as we move to the tail-end of the year. Here are a few points to help you plan for your wedding next year.
Play it Safe
The expectation is that things will start to go back to normal within a couple of months. However, it is crucial to consider the current restrictions that may still be in force on your wedding day.
For example, decide at least six months to allow your guests sufficient time to modify travel arrangements. This is also vital for the mental health of everyone.
For some people, the bigger the wedding, the merrier. Nonetheless, you may have to trim the guest list and consider social distancing rules.
Consider Your Guests
Where your guests are coming from is a huge consideration. Decide how much time they will need to make travel adjustments, considering that each state may have its own restrictions in place.
If most of your wedding reception crowd is local, then the adjustment period reduces significantly. We are talking about two to three months.
It is essential to voice your concerns to your venue and know what your options are going forward. At Villa Ragusa, we have experienced events staff, and we can help you with other logistics and other stuff to make your wedding successful.
Be Open with Your Vendors
It helps quite significantly to have a one-on-one with your vendors about the worst-case scenario. Discuss a game plan with them about the available solutions should you want to postpone the event.
Here at Villa Ragusa, we are hopeful that everything will change for the better, and you can finally have the best wedding experience. We are flexible, and our staff is at your disposal for brainstorming.
Reserve your space now!
I have an upcoming wedding to attend in August at your venue and am not comfortable having to get covid vaccination due to religious reasons. I would be willing to get a covid test and show results within a 3 day timeframe prior to event. Will that allow me to attend my family member’s wedding and reception?
