Clever Ways to Encourage Covid Safety at your Wedding

Clever Ways to Encourage Covid Safety at your Wedding, Mansion Wedding Venue

You can celebrate your wedding and still encourage guests to practice COVID Safety at your wedding. Here are some seamless and useful practices that keep health protocols in check without losing the main focus at your event.

  1. Live Stream of the Wedding: Offering an RSVP option to join the wedding party live is an alternative that’s here to stay as the “new normal”. Think about older relatives or any susceptible guests that may want another option to be a part of your wedding day.
  2. Wedding Themed Hand Sanitizers: Adding a custom label with your wedding date and names onto hand sanitizer will prompt them to sanitize their hands throughout the day.

  3. Colored “Comfort” Masks: So many weddings are incorporating the COVID “comfort” band system for guests to imply the interactions they’re comfortable with. And it’s an easy way to know whether or not you should greet someone from afar, give them a handshake, or even go in for a hug. To feed two birds with one scone, we’ve decided colored “comfort” masks that guests can identify with is a clever way to encourage COVID safety at your wedding.
  4. Call-to-action Signage: Tell your guests what you expect from them with the same kind of signs you use for your dessert table, guest book table, etc. 
  5. Spaced out Balloons: Here’s a way to encourage social distancing visually that still adds the 2020 balloon decor wedding trend.
  6. DJ’s over Live Bands:. Live bands require 6-feet spacing which you may not have room for, and DJ’s can wear a face maskunlike a singer. It also saves money and guests can request more of their favorite songs. Overall, the less attendees, the better it is for your wedding’s COVID safety.

  7. Smaller Tables: Allow your guests to choose their table since they most likely have “herd-immunity” with a few other wedding guests. Spaced out, smaller tables of about four people keeps social distancing more intact.

  8. Designated Waitstaff for Guests: Each table should have their own waitstaff to avoid contact with too many guests.

The wedding industry is ever-evolvingand now even more so with COVID safety precautions. Everyone has been challenged to put on their thinking caps to generate clever ways to support your wedding safety.

Burleson Small Wedding Splurges

Now that we’re are all embracing the new normal, and accepting the fact that small weddings may be around for a while, we want to give you a few tips on the best places to splurge for your big day. From flowers to photography and decor to entertainment – the priorities for every couple are different. The beauty of having an intimate wedding is that your budget will go further with fewer guests and allow you to focus on what’s important to you.

When it comes to entertainment, you may decide to focus on live music, from a pianist to a band, even with a small group in attendance live music can create an event to remember.

If you and your fiance are foodies, you may want to dedicate the extra budget to the menu. Transitioning to a multi-course meal with paired beverages can be a personalized treat for all.

Another area we see a lot of our couples focusing some of their extra budget on is photography and videography. Although you’ll have less guests, there will be no shortage of amazing moments to capture. One consistent thing we hear from most couples is how fast their wedding day goes. They tell us how it was an amazing blur of special moments, and how grateful they are to have the photos and videos to come back to for years to come.

Most importantly, it’s about what’s important to you. You may feel like your plans have all changed, but creating an experience that is all about you and your fiance can be a magical twist.

Burleson Event Venue

When you’re venue shopping one area that you may not have on your checklist (but you should) are the bride and grooms’ suites. These spaces actually end up being a big part of your day and photos. Not only will you use the space to get ready in, but also have that last conversation with your family and bridal party before walking down the aisle. It’s where you’ll step into your dress, it’s where the men will have their boutonnieres attached, where you’ll toast each other and spend time laughing and smiling preparing for the big moment.

Because this room is an important part of our venue, we’ve designed an unmatched space for both our bridal suite and groom’s suite. Take a look at some of our favorite elements below.

The groom’s suite is a dream man cave! From the pool table, wet bar and big screen TV, to the poker room and sauna it truly is one-of-a-kind.
