It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic is still lingering in the background despite increased vaccinations and available rapid testing. This pandemic shadow has made it challenging for many brides and grooms to throw the types of wedding celebrations they wish they could throw.
Fortunately, if you have a wedding coming up and you want to be sure that you and your guests are as safe and secure as possible, there are a few key ways you can reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 while still celebrating your big day.
Limo services are one of the most popular choices for transportation when it comes to weddings. In fact, according to operators, phone-ins account for up to 90% of limousine and car service reservations. However, when you’re doing your search for the right limo services for your wedding, be sure to look into what that transportation service is doing to ensure both their chauffeurs and their passengers are safe.
RMA Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation is a limo service that takes sanitation and safety seriously. We use electrostatic disinfecting sprayers to sanitize and disinfect each and every one of our vehicles after every use. These cleaning methods are not only used by our company but also used by airlines, hotels, and other industries because they’re capable of reaching hard-to-reach places that may otherwise be missed by regular cleaning services. We require that our chauffeurs wear a mask at all times in the vehicle while driving you and we limit the number of passengers allowed in each vehicle. By choosing a professional transportation service that puts your health and safety first, you can feel confident knowing you and your guests will be as secure as possible.
According to the CDC, it’s still recommended that those who are vaccinated wear masks and social distance both indoors and outdoors due to the prevalence of the Delta variant. To help stay CDC compliant while also ensuring the safety of your guests, consider supplying masks for your wedding guests that they’ll actually want to wear. Fashionable wedding masks or masks that match your bridesmaids’ dresses and groomsmen’s tuxedos can be a great way to get guests excited to stay safe.
Now that fall is right around the corner, it may soon be too chilly to have your wedding outdoors. If you plan to have both an outdoor and indoor wedding, as many couples choose for their reception, make sure that you choose an indoor venue that’s well-ventilated. COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets, and ventilation ensures that fresh air is routinely entering the space while stale air is sent outdoors.
Many couples began having smaller weddings since the onset of the pandemic as a way to stay safe and social distance. However, this trend may also be here to stay as it allows couples to save more money on their wedding celebrations and gives them to the opportunity for a more intimate ceremony. If you plan to have a wedding between now and 2022, consider keeping your guest list on the smaller side to help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Once you have your guest list established, it’s recommended to create a health and safety plan for your wedding and to send your plan alongside your RSVPs to your guests. According to a survey by The Knot in August 2021, up to 61% of older guests and 51% of younger guests said they preferred to receive the health and safety information about the wedding along with their invitation so they could determine whether to attend due to local mandates, concerns, and restrictions.
A health and safety plan consists of plans for masks, socially distanced layouts or seating arrangements, hand sanitizing areas, guest count, air filters, and more. Hand sanitizer is one of the topmost expected safety protocols for events such as weddings.
Planning a wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic, even in 2021, is still a challenge. However, with the right tools and safety protocols in place, you can have peace of mind knowing your wedding is as safe as it can be at this time.
