You’ve been planning for months throughout quarantine. As the day of romance creeps closer, the thoughts cross your mind, “Can I host a wedding right now?” Your destination wedding might work in a more unique way during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the security and the wellbeing of your guests being of the utmost importance, resorts are well-equipped to handle your ceremony’s safety standards and guarantee a memorable stay.
Here’s how you can host an enchanting destination wedding during COVID-19, just like Chavisse and Chavonna did above:
Can weddings take place during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Welcome Back – Arrival and Check-In Procedures: Check-in health procedures upon arrival at a resort, including temperature and health checks at a Hygiene Check-In station, cleaning of the lobby with high-level disinfectant every hour, and sanitation of luggage and personal electronic devices.
Come on In-Room Cleaning Procedures: Cristal RoomCheck verification certifies that each guest room has met the highest hygiene cleaning, with sanitation information on in-room tablets, printouts, and TVs.
Time to Relax – Sanitation Throughout the Resort: Increased sanitation throughout all areas of the resorts, including high human contact areas such as staircases, elevators, public areas and restrooms, as well as sports equipment and spa facilities. Beach and pool loungers will also be distanced.
How many people can attend a wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic?
How to reduce risks at a wedding during COVID-19
At many all-inclusive resorts, buffet food is drastically reduced or nixed all together in favor of plated meals and live cooking stations. Overall, this enables qualified employees to help keep up with food handling regulations while also providing the expected impeccable service of a destination wedding. Tables will be placed 6ft apart, potentially with no more than 6 wedding guest groups per table. Hand sanitizer stations will be available in the venue, just as at the ceremony.
We’ve been through a lot this year. It’s hard to forecast when certain activities will be safer. Despite this, you can still host a gorgeous destination wedding during COVID-19. While 2020 has brought a series of trials and tribulations, your favorite destinations have and continue to adapt to the circumstances, promoting a sanitized environment with endless possibilities. So, kickstart that planning and tie the knot at a luxury sun-soaked resort soon!
