Best Creative Wedding Ideas from Real COVID-19 Weddings in 2020
Real Wedding Ideas from Covid Weddings Around the World
Wedding planning in 2020 and into 2021 — it goes without saying that it’s probably a little different than what you would have expected if you’d been daydreaming about your big day in years prior. Different, though, definitely doesn’t have to be a bad thing; there are plenty of 2020 wedding ideas and 2021 wedding ideas we love! We interact with brides every day who are hunting for COVID wedding ideas to make their big day feel unique and special. Knowing the ins and outs of wedding trends comes with the territory for our team, and we’ve helped countless brides during their time with us last year by giving them wedding ideas and chatting through with them all the positives and beauty that still comes out of having a wedding in the current climate we’re in. From collecting fabulous tips and tricks for COVID wedding hacks, to gathering the best wedding ceremony ideas and wedding reception ideas, we want to share with you some of our behind the scenes knowledge on the breathtaking COVID weddings we have seen. Brides still deserve to feel gorgeous and have their own version of the most perfect day.
So many of our stunning brides have found ways to go ahead with their weddings during this time. We feel that now more than ever, weddings are important: positive, happy reasons to celebrate (safely, of course) and giving the people you care for most a reason to smile and find joy. For you and your fiancée, letting your love be the light in such a dark time is a beautiful thing.
Olivia & Flynn (Photographed by Alex Clayden Photography) are a perfect example!
Featured alongside Alana and Josh (below) earlier this year in another one of our blogs, Olivia & Flynn are an incredible example of two lovebirds who moved with the tide instead of going against it. All of our brides were faced with unprecedented times this year, and it makes perfect sense that there are countless solutions that fit different people. For Olivia, though, she knew she wanted to marry Flynn regardless of the times we are in. After their original venue closed down and restrictions were put in place, this bride and her fiancée made a quick decision only a few days before their original wedding date to go ahead and celebrate their love regardless. The day was certainly different to what they had planned. It was just the two of them, giving off the ultimate relaxed and intimate feeling. Family and friends that were close by were able to drive by and see them, though, which made the day special for their original guests as well. To Olivia, she knows every bride is different and will do what feels best for herself, but she truly wanted to celebrate her love and marriage on her planned date and the other details fell into place surrounding that decision.
Before we share some more of the spectacular small weddings we’ve seen (and wedding ceremony ideas and wedding reception ideas we’ve picked up along the way), keep in mind you’ll be able to make your intimate day so incredibly special and use your reduced guest list as an opportunity to make your wedding shine where you want it to. As we delve into in our Small Wedding Ideas article, having a smaller guest count means you’ll have more budget to spread around elsewhere and invest in the things that are most important to you and your fiancée. So many of our brides decide to splurge on their photographer, gown and food because of this, and others save up for a later-date killer honeymoon or even planning for another happy milestone like buying their first home. That being said, many of our brides have wanted to take a negative and turn it completely around to make their day unique beyond what they would have imagined with a more “typical” wedding. Looking at your big day with a fresh new perspective and incorporating some (now tested and true) coronavirus wedding ideas, allows you to think outside the box and do something really different to make your wedding memorable to the point where no one will be thinking of the crazy times we’re in at the moment. There are plenty of fun ideas to make your wedding unique and a day your guests will never forget.
