So we picked this rescheduled date last year in March, before we realized that everything around us was about to change. At the time, we even thought by the summer that COVID would be a thing of the past and that we could have the wedding then. This was clearly not the case and I’m very thankful to my future sister-in-law for advising us to be safe and push it a year. When picking the date, it was the only open one our venue had for 2021. We had already put down a fair amount of money to the venue and vendors, so canceling all together was just not an option for us. So we’re adapting!
So we’re pivoting to part micro-wedding, and part zoom. We have so many loved ones that we’d like to celebrate with, but because of where they live or because of their health, travel isn’t really an option or something that we’re willing to ask people to do. Aside from safety concerns, we also don’t want a large gathering, considering we’ve barely had any human contact within the past year. Life is going to be awkward for a while and that’s fineeeee.
For those who will be with us in person, we’re taking all the steps to ensure that we can celebrate safely:
1. Everyone will be vaccinated! This is the biggest factor for us being able to move forward with the event at all. PS if you aren’t vaccinated yet, NY state just opened the appointments to those 16+ (
2. The ceremony will be outside, socially distanced, and masks will be worn. I even have a cute mask DIY coming next week that’s going to be so good!
3. We have approval from the NY health department and protocols in place to keep everyone safe including temperature checks and contract tracing. Our venue is following all steps to make sure guests will be safe and I’m so thankful for that.
