Wedding Planning During COVID

Wedding planning during COVID is not what you had in mind when you dreamed of your perfect wedding day. Many couples have had to cancel and/or reschedule their wedding plans during the COVID pandemic. So many factors are at play when deciding what to do. Many states are now requiring a 14-day quarantine for out of state visitors. Venues have to limit seating capacity, and the way food is served is very different now. I know you never envisioned having to deal with the restrictions we are all now subject to. This is why there is an increase in wedding elopements and micro weddings among couples whose plans have been impacted this year.

Couples are choosing to elope, just the two of them. They are choosing a destination that is closer to home, or a destination that is open and currently welcoming visitors with minimal travel restrictions in place. One of the top international destinations couples are choosing is Mexico. Mexico has put safety and health protocols in place to ensure the well being of its visitors and does not require a COVID test prior to travel like some other tropical locations. Many of the resorts in the popular spots, Cancun, Cabo & Puerto Vallarta have already reopened. Couples are choosing to elope so they don’t have to limit the number of people who attend their wedding and will have a big wedding celebration with family and friends when it is safe to do so.

Another option couples are choosing is a micro wedding. Weddings that are much smaller in size, with only family or a few close friends attending. A destination wedding is perfect if you are choosing a micro wedding. Escape to someplace beautiful for a few days to a week, give your guests a much-needed vacation, and honeymoon at the same time. The options of outdoor venues are many; social distancing is easier to maintain and to keep everyone safe.

Wedding planning during COVID is not what any of us could have imagined. My heart goes out to all whose plans and lives have been impacted by this nasty virus.

Travel advisors save you time and stress

Reading about places to go is exciting, but planning a trip is stressful. There is so much information available online and on TV. Travel advisors are working for you when we travel; we look at everything from room size, the dining options available, special resort amenities, and optional activities for you to enjoy. If we haven’t personally been where you want to go, a colleague of ours has. We know the best things to do in a given destination because we have personally been there, or because a previous client came home and raved about something that they found. Travel advisors also specialize in specific destinations or travel niches like family vacations, honeymoons and destination weddings.
