What is the new normal wedding now? Couples around the world have either put their weddings on hold or have canceled it because of the restrictions imposed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Now it is an intimate affair with a limited number of guests.
If you are planning to reschedule your wedding in the latter part of the year, it is best to take some necessary steps to ensure the safety of your guests and yourself as well. This “New Normal” for wedding functions emphasizes best hygiene practices and minimizing contact.
Contact-less serving of food
One of the main components of Indian weddings is the gourmet food that is served to the guests. While serving the food some measures should be taken in order to comply with physical distancing norms. There should be one designated server for providing each one of the guests with a plate so that guests don’t need to touch the cutlery.
This is how you can avoid long queues near the food counter. This is where guests usually gather and stand close to each other. Lines should be marked to maintain a distance of six feet between two individuals. Caterers need to get their ingredients and raw materials from a trusted source. They must also follow cleanliness measures while transferring the food from their facility to the venue.
Sanitizers and hand napkins must be kept at every point of the venue, right from the entrance to way out. There should be arrangements for thermal checking for whoever enters the venue. The venues must be disinfected before and after the wedding is over.
There should be no dearth of hand washes and sanitizers inside the washrooms and masks should be provided if necessary. To avoid any queues outside the washrooms, there should be a designated waiting area so that physical distance is maintained.
Few more things
Handshakes, hugs and photo sessions are a common practice when people meet each other after a long time at weddings. However, in the post-pandemic phase, one should stay away from all such activities in order to ensure a safe and successful wedding.
An upcoming wedding trend
At present, destination weddings are a thing of the past and weddings are being planned at a venue in the neighborhood. In addition, relatives from abroad can take part in the wedding virtually. So, the live streaming of wedding ceremonies seems to be an upcoming trend. So it is best to get accustomed to the new normal wedding.
If you decide to get married during this time, following the above-mentioned steps will limit the risks and ensure safety.
