1. Outdoor Venue


One of the best ways to maintain social distance on our 5 Ways to Reduce Contact at In-Person Weddings: The Ultimate Guide For Brides is to have your wedding at an outdoor venue. Hosting your wedding outdoors allows for more space in between seating for your guests. Guests should still wear masks to ensure their safety along with those around them. There are plenty of venues that offer outdoor accommodations, even if it's on a partial basis. For instance, you can host the wedding ceremony indoors while guests can move outdoors for cocktails and dinner.



2. Have a Micro Wedding


Also, on our 5 Ways to Reduce Contact at In-Person Weddings: The Ultimate Guide for Brides, is to have a micro wedding. This option has become very popular during this time because venues are only allowed a limited number of people inside a particular space at once. So, downsizing your guestlist is a good way to reduce contact at your wedding. It can also help in reducing the spread of the coronavirus.



3. Create a Sanitary Environment


If you would like to take matters into your own hands, then think about creating a sanitary environment for your guests. For example, provide a sanitation station that consists of hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes. You can also have your guests sign a disclaimer if they plan to attend your wedding. This is a good way to ensure guests adhere to the guidelines that are set forth by you, for your wedding, and also the CDC.



4. Have a Plated Dinner


Another one of 5 Ways to Reduce Contact at In-Person Weddings: The Ultimate Guide for Brides is to have a plated dinner. Choosing this option instead of having a family-style or buffet-style dinner can reduce contact among your guests. You are not standing in line at a buffet or passing the serving dish around at a family-style dinner.



5. One-Way Traffic


You've seen those arrows and signs in grocery stores and every other place you can think of that wants everyone to go in one direction. Well, your wedding doesn't have to be any different. The venue or your wedding planner should be able to assist you with signage, to help your guests move in one direction as to avoid, if not limit, close contact when accessing hallways, walkways, etc.
