Planning a dream wedding during a global pandemic can be challenging, but it also provides an opportunity to evaluate your priorities on the big day and create an incredible occasion for you to cherish forever.
The chance of throwing your dream wedding with swathes of guests may have been taken away but the potential to have a micro wedding might just be your saving grace.
In order to minimise the chance of the virus spreading, the UK government has made it clear that as of the 28th of September, the number of guests one couple are allowed to invite to their secure wedding is 15. Of course, this is likely to be a considerably smaller number compared to what you might have originally hoped for, but it’s important that you can follow these guidelines to ensure that you can protect yourself, your family and your friends during your special day. You must make an effort to keep yourself and your guests as safe as possible, reducing the risk of catching and spreading COVID by maintaining social distancing whilst utilising PPE such as face masks.
Inviting just 15 guests doesn’t have to mean that you have to say goodbye to your initial fairytale of hopes and dreams, as you can still have the very best intimate day by planning your own special micro wedding. A beautiful flowing gown, a dazzling reception venue and a heartfelt ceremony are all still options despite the rules and regulations that have been set in place, so you needn’t feel any less special on your big day. You gain the opportunity to make your wedding a lot more intimate and personal, slowing down the speed whilst having to worry about far less than you would for an otherwise ‘normal’ wedding pre-pandemic.
A micro wedding is a far more personal affair, as you are able to give your attention to each and every guest, speaking with them privately without the need to rush to the next guest as soon as your conversation gets into full swing. Deciding who you might invite when just 15 guests are welcome at your wedding may be the trickiest part of your project, but only you and your partner will be able to choose who makes the cut. Don’t worry about those who don’t get chosen, as you can utilise video calling platforms and photo messaging to show the ceremony to the rest of your family and friends that were unable to come inside!
