You’ve been planning it for months, if not years, and now that your wedding day is in sight there’s another spanner in the works. Your parents insisted you invite all the aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbours and in-laws under the sun but now thanks to Covid-19 you have the fun job of restructuring your guest list and whittling it down without hurting anyone’s feelings and without losing the special feeling that’s essential for a wedding day.
You’ll do something online, of course, but what? And how can you make those joining you over video feel like they’re right in the middle of the celebrations?
Wedding planner Kate O’Dowd of Love & Gatherings says couples impacted by restricted numbers should plan their day as if it was intended to be an intimate event with close family and friends. She thinks it is an opportunity to be even more creative on your big
FULLERTON, Calif. (KABC) — Steven Shoemaker and Kirsten Haigh tied the knot in the courtyard of a Fullerton skilled nursing home to be sure Kirsten’s 89-year-old grandma wouldn’t miss it.
“I joke, she’s such a fantastic host that it would be just like her to find a way to host our wedding,” said Haigh.
The newlyweds live in San Francisco, but had always planned to get married in Orange County.
“We were planning on having a big wedding in Costa Mesa on September 6th. Everybody was invited. Probably at least 100, 150 people,” said Shoemaker. But that all changed with the pandemic and it was back to the drawing board.
“We had the epiphany of what really matters here, so we asked the facility if we could get married in the parking lot because her window faces the parking lot and of course, we got so much more,” Haigh.
STOCKTON, Calif. (KTXL) — Cynthia Guerrero’s dream is to own her own small wedding event rental business.
“Our focus is primarily on farm tables. We have vintage items,” she said.
She said her business, Wild Bride Rentals, was already struggling because of the pandemic, with many weddings postponed and major events canceled.
“We’ve just been at a complete standstill since everything’s shut down. So, our last revenue came in in February,” Guerrero said.
She said she feels like her dream is in even more jeopardy after thieves broke into their downtown Stockton event space at The Sycamore and stole their trailer and at least $10,000 in vintage decor pieces and rental supplies on Thursday.
“It just took a long time to get to where I felt like, OK, we’re getting known,” Guerrero told FOX40. “It felt like we were right there to reach that dream and it was just kind
“Intimate weddings have always been chic—even before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Joy Proctor, who designed Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s intimate wedding in the South of France. And we couldn’t agree more—small weddings, no matter how petite, are weddings nonetheless; well-deserving of attention to detail, jaw-dropping fashion moments, and a stellar guest experience.
With couples postponing and rethinking their wedding plans for 2020 and 2021 with fresh priorities, safety, and national and international regulations in mind, celebrations have inherently become smaller, more intimate—and, if we’re being honest, more intentional and personal than ever before. A common misconception is that a small weddings mean less effort, curation, and elevation. Quite the contrary; a wedding is a wedding, regardless of size, scope, and location—and smaller guest counts make it possible to get even more creative.
Whether your celebration takes place in the backyard at home or far
With the wedding industry having taken a massive hit due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the big fat Indian weddings are out of the way making room for a small intimate affair to mark the occasion. For someone who fantasizes about a grand celebration with everything lavish, dazzling under the lights, a big stage with dance performances and extravagant decor, a small scale wedding can be a bummer.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, small weddings with a limited number of guests have taken a rising toll among the wedding planners and the Indian society. People are now planning to keep it a small and private gathering rather than hosting a lavish party with an unlimited number of guests. If this trend remains to sustain itself, we could see an upcoming change in the wedding industry soon that will break all the traditional wedding norms and this may not be a

Anyone caught flouting the rules with be slapped with a £100 fine, doubling with each offence, up to a maximum of £3,200.
