Ways to get Married During the Coronavirus


Get excited, friends! In anticipation of something super new and exciting that we are launching in a few weeks, this week we’re publishing the first post of a 7 part blog post series on ways to get married during the Coronavirus.

I think it’s pretty safe to say that 2020 isn’t going how any of us expected it to go. Not a single one of us. If you expected this year to take the direction it has, I really, really wish you would have reached out and let all of us in the wedding industry know about 8 months ago. Why? Well, it would have been great to be able to prepare all of our couples (who are we kidding, and ourselves) for what was to come. To be able to help everyone adjust expectations, make back-up, back-up plans, and to just be able to brace ourselves. But, alas, no one knew. Or anticipated. And now here we are. 

Those of us that own businesses in the wedding industry are scurrying around trying to figure out how to keep our business alive while still serving our clients with everything that we’ve got. We’re trying to figure out the best advice to give to our heartbroken clients. We would be lying if we said that it was easy. 

Especially because it feels like the rules change every single dang day. 

But, alas, here we are, friends. All of us together trying to navigate the unknown. But you know what? We’re going to figure it out together. That’s just the way this community works.

Why are we here today? 

Well, today we wanted to start the conversation. The conversation on ways to get married during the Coronavirus. Because yes, you absolutely still can get married. LOVE did not get cancelled, friends. Believe it or not, you’ve got a few different options, and today we thought we would give you a brief rundown of them all. PS – Stay tuned, in the coming weeks we’ll be deep diving into each option and the pros and cons that go along with it.

Reschedule Completely

Yep, this is the option we’re seeing couples roll with the most often right now. Completely rescheduling or postponing their wedding day until later this fall or early next spring. 

Tie the Knot Now, Celebrate Later

This is also a pretty common option that we’re seeing couples do. For a lot of couples their wedding day is special to them. And because of that? They’re still going ahead and getting married. Even if it means only 7 other people can be there. And later? Once everything has cleared up a little bit? You better prepare yourselves for the party of the year. 

Have a Zoom Wedding

Yep, that’s right. While we haven’t seen too much of this, but think it will catch on.Yes, there may be a little bit of extra technology involved, but it still means you can get married. 

Livestream Your Wedding

Surely you didn’t think that only large companies can livestream events? Nope, not at all, friends. Especially as things start opening up more, we kind of feel like folks will be a little leery about venturing out and about. Live-streaming your wedding is a great way to still include everyone in your big day. 

A Coronavirus Friendly, Modified Wedding Experience

This is a super-special combo of some of everything above that we’re super excited for. Maybe you’re restricted to only having 10 people in attendance, that’s okay. Livestream your wedding. After your ceremony go ahead and share your first dance, toasts, and cake, still live-streaming. And when you’re done? Hop in the car to drive around to all of your friends and family’s houses to do socially distant photos with all of your VIPS. Yep, this is something we’re totally digging, friends.

Like we mentioned – stay tuned, friends. In the coming weeks we’ll be deep diving into each of these scenarios to help you make the best decisions you can. And at the end of it all? We’ve got something super exciting to share with you!!
