As we all know, finding ways to create a safe and beautiful wedding during COVID can be quite challenging. From serving to seating, we’re here to help you with some clever ideas from celebrity wedding designers Stanlee Gatti, and Mindy Weiss. Scroll down to see how you can add impact to your reception and wedding photography all while adding the social to your distance. All photographs are by L.A. photographers, and WBWP members, Amy and Stuart.
For this gorgeous wedding, bright furniture, rugs, and colorful accents work together to make this reception uplifting and spacious. Push your seating a bit farther apart and you are all good to go for family groups, couples, and singles.
With chairs. love seats, and small tables there is no end to the seating layouts you can create.
And if you don't want your guests to share food, set out individual wedding cakes per table or cupcakes for individuals. Be sure your silverware and napkins are already set out and sanitized.
There are so many things to love about this design from Mindy Weiss! The red and blue setting off the green of the grass, the comfortable blankets, and of course, the canoes. Modify this look with smaller tables, cocktails tables, and chairs set apart and you are all set for social distancing.
How about a canoe, rowboat, or kayak as a centerpiece? Drape it with flowers, leaves, and vines and you have a showpiece that says, summer.
Wine can be shared with partners and friends in each other's Covid circles, so why not put out wine around a big barrel and let them serve themselves? Or consider serving frosty bottles of beer in a centerpiece made of ice, or giving out cocktails and lemonade in thermoses with your own design on it.
Whether you are having a small wedding or eloping with just an officiant and witness, you'll want to make it special. Two of the things we wouldn't leave out are a beautiful arbor and...
and the getaway car! People need joy in their lives especially now and decorating your car (or having a friend do it), will make your day more uplifting for you and eveyone who sees you. A sure-fire way to put a smile on your neighbor's faces!
