Celebrate wedding ceremony safely in London – 2021
Throwback to December 2020, when the world though that a year change will automatically chase the Corona virus away. Well, here we are halfway through 2021, with the lockdown restrictions and safety precautions right where they were. The couples who had postponed their weddings last year thinking they’ll have grand ceremonies when all this ends, are now planning quiet weddings because no one knows how long this will take. So if you’re one of them, especially from London, reading this right now then go on because this is just for you. We’re about to brighten your day by telling you how you can have a lovely wedding ceremony in 2021, amidst all the pandemic chaos.
Start by making a checklist. Ceremonies are going to be different than what they used to be so you might need to plan differently as well. While planning, the most important things to consider are the guest list and the venue.
- The Venue
Currently indoor dining and celebrations are prohibited, so you will either have to book an open banquet space, or you could have the ceremony at your own home with close friends and family. Do check with your local authorities before you make any bookings.
- The Guest List
As per the latest COVID19 rules announced by the Government, you can have not more than 30 people for an outdoor ceremony and only 5 to 7 for an indoor ceremony. The numbers are really limiting, so you will have to plan out your guest list very carefully. Invite only the absolute close people; give preference to those who live nearby so travelling and stay will not be an issue. Only two people are allowed per vehicle, so make sure your guests know that as well.
- Virtual Guest List
All those people who cannot be invited due to the number limitations, far away residence or ill health, you can always have them participate the ceremony virtually. Share a video calling link along with the invite, so no one misses out on your special moments.
- Wedding Shopping
Try to shop online as much as possible. Avoid stepping out every other day. If you absolutely must go for shopping physically to get important items such as Lab grown diamonds rings, make a list and try to get as much as possible in one trip.
- During the ceremony
- Place sanitizer all around the area and mention in the invite that masks are to be kept on compulsorily unless people are eating.
- Arrange seating to be two metres away from each other.
- Put up boards or signs to remind people who do not live in the same household to maintain a safe distance from each other.
- Place markings on the floor to indicate where to stand in the reception line.
- Refrain from hugging, kissing or shaking hands with anyway.
- All gifts and flowers can be kept at a side table to minimize direct contact.
- Only the first dance of the couple will take place, for the rest, dancing is prohibited. The dance floor can instead be used as an extra seating space to compensate for the distance.
- A live band can be arranged only if the ceremony is held outside.
- Food and beverage arrangements should have compulsory seating. Standing and eating is not allowed.
- Avoid getting close to anyone. Talk from a safe distance. Keep the music low so everyone can hear each other clearly and there is no need to sit closer than instructed.
Yes, we know all this can seem very overwhelming, but in these trying times, what we need to remember is that more than the grand celebration, what matters is having your special moments with your special people. Make the most of those moments. And we know something that can definitely make your moments memorable for a lifetime: Lab grown diamonds Hatton garden.
