Invite Carefully and Stay Away From Infection
Make a guest list. Call only those people from both families who are very close to you. Ask other relatives politely to don’t attend your marriage. They will understand your concern regarding the current situation. Send a Digital invitation card in the form of an email to each guest. Invite different guests to different functions of the wedding so that more guests can participate in your marriage.
Dance But Be Careful
Do minimal functions. Also, you can organize functions at your home with few guests. What’s more, you can do Mehandi, sangeet, and other functions virtually. Host Baraat without Band- Baja. Dance at the baraat by keeping social distance and putting face masks on. Some venues provide satellite dance floors and satellite bars.
Sit and Eat
The venue should offer seating arrangements for guests by keeping social distancing and personal space measures. The sofa for family and the banquet for 2 or 3 people can be good seating ideas in the venue. Book the catering company that makes food by following strict safety and hygiene guidelines. Also, you can arrange self-service food counters. You can arrange packed food boxes for guests as well. But don’t try the buffet at the venue as it can cause infection.
Ask venue coordinators if they locate a separate sanitizer counter at the entrance of the marriage hall/Venue. From this counter, guests must wash their hands with sanitizers given by the staff before entering the venue. During the marriage, the venue should keep sanitizers bottles in many places so guests can use them. The venue should advise guests to wear face masks during the ceremony.
You can host marriages with creative themes such as Drive-in movie, Virtual wedding, social distancing wristbands for guests, and signage with written safety guidelines.
