The world is beginning to reopen but we have to be aware that there is a new reality when it comes to weddings and other large group events. Thousands of weddings happen around the world every weekend. According to the Knot’s global research, most engaged couples whose weddings have been impacted by COVID-19 are not canceling their weddings, and are rescheduling for either later this year or not making any changes at all. With such a strong desire to celebrate their weddings the way they always dreamed, 94% of couples do not plan to reduce their overall guest count. Kristen Maxwell Cooper Editor in Chief of The Knot said, “Tobeweds and wedding professionals are experiencing an unprecedented time as this pandemic has halted one of the most celebrated moments in a couple’s life, but love is not canceled.”
While the world is opening back up, many states are still implementing safety guidelines. One factor that will remain constant is the desire for human connection and the celebration of love with loved ones- no matter what the celebration looks like. With the help of wedding industry experts, we’d like to share the new reality of weddings and other large events regarding health and safety measures and rethinking the guest experience.
Venues may now be introducing the idea of a mobile receiving line. What exactly is this? Guests now have the unique opportunity to take part in the celebration right from the safety of their vehicles Each mobile station will follow CDC guidelines while also providing guests with a one of a kind experience.
HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO STAY HEALTHY IN A MOBILE RECEIVING LINE
1) Use a cell phone to communicate. We know this isn’t the most ideal way but it does
effectively help in the prevention of spreading Covid-19. You can prewrite some heartfelt messages and have them ready to display.
2) Wear a mask. If your windows are down, this is a great way to practice CDC guidelines and keeping all parties safe.
3) Pre-purchase meal tickets if the mobile receiving line is taking place at a restaurant. Avoid added interaction by having to purchase your meal(s) when arriving.
4) Bow, wave or blow kisses to have contactless greetings in lieu of a traditional receiving line.
5) Self-temperature check before arriving. Knowing you’re healthy prior to arriving at the event is the most important thing you can do in preventing the spread of Covid-19.
