Ways to Have the Most Memorable Wedding this Year

A wedding day is one of the most memorable days of every couple’s life. It’s a celebration of their union, a commemoration of their love for each other, and the forerunner of the blissful eternity they vow to hold onto forever. The COVID-19 virus has disrupted everyday life to a great extent, making humans rethink what really matters.

We all know someone who had to delay their wedding shenanigans amidst the global health crisis that affected approximately a hundred million people, claiming the lives of more than 2 million innocent people.

Most certainly, celebrating your big day with friends, family, and loved ones is what every couple dreams of, along with a luxurious and extravagant wedding affair that becomes the talk of the town for all the right reasons!

Here’s the good news: you can still have a memorable wedding in the face of adversities; all you need to do is rethink certain aspects to ensure everyone stays safe. How, you ask? Here are a few ways to add that extra oomph and make your big day even more special.

Spread Love, Not Germs

If your wedding reception was canceled due to COVID-19, consider donating the catering to a local charity. Spend time with orphans and spread smiles instead of having a pity party at home!

Drive-In Movie Themed Wedding

A true marriage stands the test of times when, as a couple, you’ve to work toward making things better and stand even closer to each other during bad times. Yep, that’s right; the groom will have to compromise and watch the movie the bride may have seen a hundred times but still enjoys.

Have an intimate ceremony, and get it streamed on a big screen or live-stream it for remote guests. Pick a movie you both enjoy, hire your favorite ice cream and a taco truck, and enjoy a socially distanced wedding during the pandemic.

Consider A Unique Outdoor Venue

Embrace the change and try to have an intimate wedding but at a fun location such as a playground, a mid-mountain ski lodge, an amusement park with wedding pictures on a carousel (we love the idea!), arrange a summer camp, think outside the box!

Virtual Wedding
