COVID-19 Blog Series: What Safety Measures You Need to Incorporate at Your 2020 Wedding

Seattle Wedding Planners Pink Blossom Events, Clutch Events, Perfectly Posh Events and New Creations Wedding Design & Coordination have teamed up to bring you a 4 Part Blog Series covering COVID-19 and planning your wedding during these unprecedented times. To end the series your planning pros at Pink Blossom Events cover what safety measures you need to incorporate at your 2020 wedding. 

After months of planning, watching endless news reports on the Pandemic and most likely adjusting your guest size while you sample your wedding wines once more to make sure they are “just right,” your wedding day is a few months away and you just want to celebrate! We hear you!

While we wish we could just push it aside, we know the worries of Coronavirus are in the back of your mind. Restrictions and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Federal Government and our Washington State Governor are continuing to change and will play a part of your wedding day. Luckily, your wedding planner and vendor team have been working behind the scenes collaborating these last few months establishing new safety measures and protocols as we work towards the opening of events. We are here for you!

To help ease your mind we have pulled together a list of ways to ensure your event is safe for you and your guests.

Note: We are not certified CDC health experts. Our ideas are suggestions based on current guidelines and our years of experience. We know these may adjust down the road as guidelines change however, we, your wedding planner and vendor team, are here to support you and make it the best day ever!

Getting Ready
Pop the bubbly, it’s the morning of your wedding! While you are getting ready with your nearest and dearest know your beauty team will have your health in mind. As Megan, owner of OffWhite Makeup & Beauty, said “before COVID-19 we had to protect our clients against things like MRSA, STAPH, Herpes, pink eye, and other contagious bugs. Sterile practices have and always will be very important to us. The additional steps we will take are to wear gloves and a face mask.” Hair and makeup should be the start of a beautiful day!{Photo Credit Amelia Soper Photography}

Keeping Things Clean
Guests arrive at your wedding via self-parking, valet or shuttle service and the first thing they do is open the door, place a card or gift on the gift table, remove their coat and sign your guestbook. How do you keep those things clean? Plan ahead is our motto!{Photo Credit Amelia Soper Photography}

A Friendly Welcome!
Working with Coat Check Complete we have created a number of services that will keep guests at ease as well as have their safety in mind. From Guest Arrival Attendants, a modified version of their Coat Check service to a Self-Serve Coat Check to Bathroom Attendants, the extra staff will ensure your loved ones are in the clear!

~Upon Guest Arrival – attendants will open and close doors so less guests are touching door handles. They are also available to direct friends and family, saving Aunt Marge from the task, and if needed can take temperatures of guests upon arrival.

~ Self-Serve Coat Check – Coat Check Complete can set up a “self-serve” coat check where guests hang their own coats and take a coat check number. At the end of the evening, party goers will pick up their own coat, then show the staff member their tag number and corresponding number on the hanger with the coat to leave.

~ Bathroom Attendants – from opening and closing doors for guests to wiping down counters at least twice per hour (or more according to need/guidelines) to continuously wiping down door handles of stalls and the door to the bathroom as well as ensuring supplies are well stocked. We wish this service was mandatory before COVID-19! They can even act as your mother and remind guests to wash their hands for 20 seconds!

Hand Sanitizers all Around!
In Part 1 of our blog series Clutch Events worked with Pomp & Revel to create custom hand sanitizers that are just too cute not to use. Companies such as CORT Party Rental are offering hand sanitizing stations. We highly recommend having hand sanitizing stations and individual sanitizers available throughout your venue. And remember to have those hand sanitizing bottles or wipes at each place setting during dinner.

Custom Masks for Everyone!
Who says safety can’t be in style? Companies such as BBJ Linen are offering custom face coverings (aka masks) that can be personalized to each event. From using a fabric that matches your décor to a witty saying, the sky is the limit! These can be placed at the entry to your event as guests arrive for easy grabbing and then later moved to a high traffic area like the bar or restrooms. face covering masks in cute patterns

No Contact Greetings
Hugs with your friends and family may be in the past but blowing a kiss, wave or an air hug are always okay! Check out sign from Post 1 with ideas on what to communicate to your loved ones.

Minimal Touch Guestbook
Move over polaroid cameras, pens and hello Voast! This minimal touch guestbook is the first video toast booth that asks questions to capture words, wisdom and stories from the people who love you most. Plus, they have rolled out The Virtual Voast in response to COVID-19. Now, even guests who can’t make it can still leave you a heartfelt toast. The Virtual Voast can stand alone or be paired with the Voast booth. It makes sure everyone who can’t be at the event, has a way to spread the love on your important day.

Creative Seating!
Working with your wedding planner, venue and catering team you will be able to create the best seating arrangements for your ceremony and reception based on your venue and guest count. In both the ceremony and during dinner we recommend grouping people by households and creating more space in between tables and seating vignettes. For the ceremony families in the same household may be seated close together but other guests may want to be a bit further apart. Spacing chairs farther apart or adding in additional aisles (ie. ceremony in the round) will help your guests focus on the two of you and not who is sitting nearby. seating in the round for wedding {Photo Credit Char Beck}

For cocktail hour spacing out cocktail tables to keep guests socially distanced and creating multiple lounge areas for intimate groups will keep guests apart while together. cocktail tables socially distancing {Photo Credit Rachel Birkhofer Photography}

Seating Charts will be necessary for dinner as you will want to group people by households. Guest size per tables will need to be adjusted. For example, instead of eight people at a sixty-inch round, think five, unless they are all from the same household. Using tools such as All Seated or working with you wedding planner you can create layouts that allow tables to be placed six feet apart for social distancing. It may take a little work but it will be well worth it come day of!

Catering
For years, catering companies have had a high standard in safety and cleanliness both behind the scenes and in front of the guests. Now more than ever food and beverage service will have the most rigorous regulations. Speaking with Kaspars Catering they have created a COVID-19 Handbook which outlines health and safety measures they are implementing all catering events. The handbook details that “the health and safety of our customers, communities and employees are our primary concern.” From back of the house to front of the house, this handbook will guide them and their community through each event.

Cocktail Hour Apps!
Tray passed appetizers and elaborate cheese boards may be on hold but individual items (Martha Stewart made popular years ago) and Small Plate Stations with an attendant are encouraged!

What About the Drinks?
Caterers such as City Catering Company and Kaspars Catering are offering bottled cocktails and CORT Party Rental has been working behind the scenes on ways we can be safe at the bar, but still have fun in an attractive way! They are rolling out custom service dividers (aka “sneeze guards”) that can be placed on bars to allow distance between the bartender and guests. bottled cocktails for weddings city catering copany {Photo Credit City Catering Company}

Dinner Service
Individually plated meals and entrees being covered will be your best friend! Unless covered, pre-plated salads will be a thing of the past and bread baskets will be replaced with individually served rolls. Family-Style service, while one of our absolute favorites will be on hold for now. Buffets are an option but these will come with service dividers and an attendant to serve your guests vs self-serving. safely deliviering covered meals for weddings {Photo Credit Kristen Honeycutt Photo Co.}

Incorporating elevated cloches can serve double duty at each place setting for your dinner. We have also been working with rental companies such as CORT Party Rental on elevated plate covers. stylish elevated plate covers for weddings during a pandemic

As Shelby Sewell, owner of Foodz Catering mentions, “Right now and until we have a vaccine against COVID we will be looking at ways to serve food in a safe way at events. This will essentially consist of some type of barrier to keep menu items ‘safe’ by staying covered as long as possible during the process of serving. That’s the analytical way of looking at it but how we do this can be one of many ways! Many planners are looking at plated meals as a way to keep people safe since the open buffet that uses serving utensils shared by all your guests would be a cross-contamination nightmare. Having a gloved, masked server behind a plexiglas barrier would be a safe way to serve guests but private events like weddings would not likely welcome “the lunch lady” look at their wedding!  Even a plated service may need additional barriers such as food covers.  The ones used in today’s market are industrial in nature as currently they are used for the back of house preparations. So, it’s a good idea but we, at Foodz, like to be more creative. We would rather see guests be served with menu items served under a glass cloche or one of our favorites, the tagine.” safely serving food in a tagine for wedding {Source}

“The tagine has many colors and variable shapes so it could be woven into a couple’s decor. We love the surprise effect when the cover is removed. We want to add to your experience and this is one way to accomplish that task.”

Other options for an experiential meal from Foodz Catering include “a hybrid on a buffet, a Bento Box theme where guests would use a wooden tray and choose items that are individually packaged. This would be a great way to accommodate allergies and food preferences” as well as “a Tiffin Box that was invented for workers in India and spread across Asia. They can be plain and branded or very colorful. Most are 3 stacks high and are often insulated so a hot meal would stay hot.”

Food can still be delicious and creative!

Time to Party!
The moment you’ve been waiting for, the dance floor! Open up the dance floor beyond the standard 16×16’ or 20×20’ dance floor. The more space the better! X marks the spot, or in this case your spot on the dance floor! For indoor dance floors, a notation on the floor may help those partygoers spaced.

If there is an option for outdoor dancing (taking into consideration noise ordinances) get outside! While glow sticks have been popular in the past, we vote glow in the dark face masks to come out during dancing! bride and groom dancing outside {Photo Credit Sullivan & Sullivan}

Capturing It All!
In addition to your photographer have you considered Live Streaming your ceremony to loved ones who are staying at home be a part of the ceremony and wedding day? Numerous videography companies, in addition to LightSmiths, have created Live-Streaming Ceremony Services, allowing everyone to stay included. You will need a venue-provided wifi or LAN connection however companies such as LightSmiths can provide a 4G hotspot for an extra fee. (Note from LightSmiths: “what it is not: It is not a package designed to replace or compete with the traditional videography package”)

Curious how a service like this works from LightSmiths? “Multiple sources are streamed/recorded at one time. One operator seamlessly switches between cameras live, for the optimum viewing angle and action; this live feed is sent out to the desired streaming source, either YouTube or Facebook. You can choose an invite-only guest list to stream it to, so it is not sent out for the world at large to see. All sources are simultaneously recorded, along with any audio input from your DJ, mics on your officiant, time-coded, and dumped down to a master recording on a SDCARD that you get to replay.”

We hope you are able to incorporate one or many of our recommended safety tips to ensure your wedding will be as safe and enjoyable as possible!! COVID-19 may cause changes on your wedding but we know Love, Laughter and a Happily Ever After will always be true! We can’t wait for all the celebrations to come!

Cheers to Safety!

Katrina & Ryan’s JM Cellars Wedding

Ryan and Katrina both remember the moment they first met.  Katrina was at work rushing to a marketing meeting while Ryan was sitting next to the door Katrina was rushing to open, as he was waiting to meet the company CEO for his interview at that very same company. When their eyes met, Katrina became unexpectedly surprised, stopped, and went the other direction. While they didn’t speak at that moment they both remember it vividly. Fast forward a few years later as Ryan and Katrina wed set to wed in front of friends and family at JM Cellars. Inspired by the venue and their love of a classic look that accented the venue, Katrina and Ryan chose a botanical inspired event full of creams, whites and greenery. A touch of blush and navy were highlighted in the wedding party attire. Flying in some of their favorite vendors from the Philippines, their celebration pulled together Katrina and Ryan’s love of music and food as well as the opportunity to treat and celebrate with those they love the most, many of whom came from thousands of miles away.

Thanks BreeAnn for all your hard work and guidance as we planned and waited for the day to arrive. Wish we could do it all again, it was such an incredible experience! We are still on a wedding high… Cheers, K+R

Danielle & Aaron ~ April 24, 2016

Once in a while life has a beautiful way of bringing people together. Growing up Danielle and I were next door neighbors (yes, I made sure she got to school on time as I was her driver once I got my license!) and it was simply an honor to plan her and Aaron’s The Hollywood Schoolhouse wedding last April!

As far as how Danielle and Aaron met, it took a little nudging from Danielle’s aunt, but one evening, Aaron and Danielle met at a local wine bar where Aaron was listening to his friends’ band The Side Project and Danielle was celebrating landing her first nursing job with her aunt. Fast forward a few years later as that same band, The Side Project, was playing as Danielle and Aaron walked down the aisle. Photos of one unforgettable wedding day by Kristen Honeycutt Photographer! Congratulations Danielle & Aaron!

Just wanted to take a moment since the dust has settled to express how thankful we are for the amazing job you did with our wedding…Thank you for being present and approachable during the planning process. Your positivity and hard work have been so appreciated during the process!… Thank you for all the hard work and attention to detail you put into the day. It was so important that the day felt like us, and you did not disappoint. We had so many of our guests telling us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and that they day felt like us- I am so grateful to you for helping us achieve that. Thank you so much for everything!! ~ Danielle & Aaron

Lisa & Zach’s Wedding ~ September 26, 2015

Last week we paid a visit back to Spring Creek Ranch and reminisced about Lisa and Zach’s wedding weekend in the Methow Valley that took place last year at this very time. Their wedding day was the highlight among a full weekend of activities including a BBQ Welcome Dinner the night before and Post Wedding Brunch to end the weekend.

Kilby & Joel ~ September 6, 2015

Each wedding we plan we realize what a small world it really is and Kilby and Joel’s story is no different. As Kilby explains, “It’s a small Jewish world after all.” Their Love Story, as described by Kilby, reads no different…

“As a second year Pediatrics resident in Chicago, I realized that the life of a general pediatrician wasn’t for me.  After spending a month working in a pediatric rehabilitation unit, I sent out applications and accepted a position for three more years of training in Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle.  After a three day road trip with Buttercup (Kilby’s dog) across I-90 (Butter loved getting her own bed each night at the hotel), I settled into my new townhouse in Seattle.

My aunt in Memphis happened to know Joel as she lived next door to Joel’s sister and had met him at one of the holidays he spent in Memphis with his family.  She provided him with my number so that we could connect and Joel could help me settle into the city he had been calling home for 5 years.  Shortly after moving in, and as a welcome break from studying for my Pediatrics boards, I got a call from Joel.  We chatted for a while and made plans to have dinner in a week.  From that first dinner we gradually started spending more and more time together to the point where it seemed like we should try dating or make an effort to spend less time together.

From our first date learning to make pasta, to fun hikes around Seattle, inducting Joel into dog ownership, and moving in together it’s been a great adventure leading to this next step.”

Lucas Mobley Photography was on hand as Kilby and Joel married at celebrated at Woodland Park Zoo this past Labor Day Weekend. We were honored to be a part of their wedding weekend which included a Welcome Dinner at Daybreak Indian Cultural Center catered by Bitterroot Catering the night before and ended with a Post Wedding Brunch at the W Seattle!

Katie & Eric ~ August 22, 2015

When we first met Eric & Katie we knew we were in for a grand celebration as after hearing their proposal story which took place at the top of the Arc de Triomphe overlooking Paris at sunset, they deserved the best! Working with Eric & Katie on all planning and design of their wedding we couldn’t have been happier for them as they married and celebrated at Willows Lodge last summer. Courtney Bowlden Photography captured their day which started with a traditional tea ceremony at Eric’s parents home followed by a ceremony and reception at Willows Lodge.

Patty & Chad ~ August 8, 2015

In 2011 Patty and Chad were both attending the University of Redlands and taking Intro to American Politics. Patty woke up early everyday for that class to get ready for the cute football player, while he always made sure he could snag the seat next to her. While she may have turned him down for a dance at a party they spotted each other at it was second times a charm as the next party they spotted each other at, they met eyes and just knew. From then on, not a day was spent apart. Fast forward to Easter 2014, Chad proposed to Patty on their morning walk around their Freemont neighborhood and the wedding planning soon began! Working with Pink Blossom Events for a year and a half to plan their wedding it was magical to see all the details come together and watch them marry at First Free Methodist Church (the same church both her grandparents and parents married) and celebrate at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle!

Thank you so much for everything!  Patty and Chad were commenting all night how you were so on top of things and said many times how happy they were that you were their wedding planner. We’ve had several guests comment that was the most elegant wedding they’ve ever attended! They really appreciated all the fine details…I feel very fortunate you were the wedding planner for Patty and Chad’s big day! Thank you so much for all you have done to make their day special. They will have so many treasured memories thanks to you! ~ Jane, Mother of Bride

Carrie & Mike ~ April 25, 2015

When we first met with Carrie and Mike to help them plan and design their April wedding earlier this year at Alderbrook Resort & Spa we knew we were in for a good time! Having meet on Match.com they wanted to host a weekend celebration that included beautiful floral, their favorite charity the Kitsap Humane Society and dancing that would keep their guests talking for years to come! Despite a rain cloud that decided to come in a few minutes before the ceremony forcing us to move the ceremony undercover at the last minute, we’d say their wedding was picture perfect and yes, their dance party was one for the record books as we couldn’t keep those two off the dance floor! It was an epic four hour dance party! Photos by Affinity Photography.

Lauren & Jimmy ~ June 21, 2014

As winter sets in we miss those longer summer nights more and more. Today we look back at Lauren & Jimmy’s summer solstice wedding at the Woodmark Hotel, Yacht Club & Spa and have hope that they will soon be here again as we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. From the gorgeous floral by Maxine’s Floral Design to the simply elegant cake from New Renaissance Cakes all ending with a stellar dance party (thanks to DJ Chris Graves) featuring a baseball themed groom’s table complete with big-chew, cracker jacks, red vines, sunflower seeds, mini-cheesecakes and Alanta Braves paraphernalia paying tribute to Jimmy’s favorite team.
