Coronavirus has drastically slowed down the economy due to its risk factors and the government has advised hosting wedding ceremonies with not more than a hundred members. In this way, we can avoid the spread of this virus by supporting small gatherings. Health is any day a priority!

As the aim is to host a wedding in smaller groups, choosing an appropriate venue can be tricky. This is because weddings will be taking place on auspicious days that are to fall in December and it can cause a clash between the number of weddings vs. number of venues. In this case, you may either have to be an early bird or organise a wedding from home. 

3. Advantage Of Sanitisation and Hygienic Practises

To keep off the virus you can arrange sanitisation at the wedding venue, so your guests enter a hygiene-friendly space. This idea is beneficial for everyone to get shielded from COVID and take memories home instead of an infection. Hygienic practises such as eco-friendly disposables, usage of gloves, temperature checks of the vendors will ultimately clear off your environment from germs. Therefore, we see it as an advantage of lowering the risks of any virus that is to come.

4. Masks and Social Distancing

Researchers are undergoing the process of finding a permanent cure for Coronavirus and have yet not announced a subsequent way of treatment.

It is understandable that Wedding is the occasion of a lifetime but we might not be willing to put our health at risk. Therefore, Intimate Wedding is the ultimate go-to and do not fear much as you can still make it look like a dream wedding.
