It seems like 2020 has thrown curve-ball after curve-ball at us all year long, and the rise of COVID-19 is no different. Having to anticipate events a few months in advance has always been a part of wedding planning, but all of this uncertainty has definitely made things harder. Luckily, there are plenty of recommended safety measures, like social distancing, from the major public health agencies to help you include safety precautions in your wedding plans! Here’s How to work social distancing into your Las Vegas wedding at Lucky Little Chapel!
Keep the Guest List Short
One of the best ways that you can work social distancing guidelines into your Las Vegas wedding is by keeping the guest count low. Restaurants and bars everywhere are implementing spread out seating arrangements into their floor-plans that make it easier to go about enjoying a venue without too many obstructions. Keeping your guest list short will make coming up with a seating arrangement at the reception that keeps your guests safe.
Not to mention, some states are implementing capacity restrictions on gatherings, so it is best to keep your wedding small in order to ensure that your wedding can go on as planned! We offer a wide selection of wedding packages that will accommodate even the smallest gatherings.
Livestream Your Wedding
In today’s climate, it’s likely that some of your guests may not be willing to travel to a wedding event because they are social distancing. Additionally, some people may not want to risk catching COVID-19 so any gathering of people may be a non-starter.
That’s why live-streaming your wedding may be your best bet! Many events that were canceled or postponed simply turned into digital events that were live-streamed. This is an inexpensive way to make sure that everyone who you want to be apart of your wedding can witness the event in real-time!
Wearing those blue hospital masks may not be the most fashionable thing to wear to your wedding, but that’s just because you haven’t tried looking for a mask that goes with your outfit! Look, it feels like we’re getting to the point where wearing a mask in public will become less than optional. At the very least, it will be socially unacceptable, so why not simply embrace that fact, and start adding a collection of fashionable face masks to your wardrobe.
Get Creative With Seating
Work with your wedding venue to plan a seating chart that is safer than sitting everyone down shoulder-to-shoulder. This may be a thing of the past. While rows of orderly chairs at your wedding are aesthetically pleasing, it doesn’t mean that you can find a creative seating arrangement that allows your guests to social distance during the wedding ceremony.
Switch up the Catering Style
Finally, while family-style buffets and platters of Hors d’oeuvres are classic catering options for weddings, having a buffet may not be the best idea if you want to prevent the spread of germs. Instead, serve your guests with a meal that is already portioned out so that they do not accidentally touch or contaminate another guest’s meal.
