EMILY & MARCO // COVID-19 AND WHAT THAT MEANS FOR WEDDINGS IN 2020
First things first, I want to extend a gigantic virtual hug to you during this current pandemic. I hope you are well and keeping safe during such a crazy time. The support we have for each other and helping one another out where we can is indescribable.
Over a course of roughly one week, things drastically changed in the events world in Australia. Couples planning their wedding were unsure of what to do due to the impact COVID-19 had. By Tuesday 24th March weddings were only to continue with a maximum of five people in attendance. Yep, five. That meant the couple, the celebrant and two witnesses.
Currently, small elopement-style weddings can take place, with bigger celebrations to be postponed to a later date. If you’re sitting at home wishing your wedding could go ahead, you’ve come to the right place. I am all for this style of wedding. Good news is it can still go ahead, albeit may look slightly different to your original vision, but you can still plan a day to remember, in an intimate, romantic setting and marry your bestie.
My biggest tip for battling the pandemic sh*t-storm is to consider making things legal on paper and postpone the party (or the whole day for that matter) to a future date without any hassle of COVID-19 lingering around. Better yet, you can live stream your elopement via video to a specific group of friends and family so they can still share in this incredible moment with you. This means you can still update your name on Facebook, get a fancy ring, AND celebrate with all your family and friends in person, at a later date. That means TWO anniversaries to celebrate too!
