Let ‘s “I Do” This – 10 iso wedding hacks

How do you adapt to the raft of restrictions that determine how and where we can gather? Understandably these conditions can and will change week to week, even day to day but here are our best ideas for planning your iso wedding day. Sometimes you just don’t want to wait to get hitched.

1. Choose bite-sized individual wedding cakes. Think cupcakes or High Tea style delicacies, rather than tiered cakes to share.

2. Outdoor wedding ceremonies – let the view be your chapel and nature your backdrop.

3. Livestreaming – you’ve culled the guest list (ouch, we fee you) but that doesn’t mean people can’t be part of the experience by attending virtually.

4. Alfresco dining – socially distanced tables outside so there’s plenty of fresh air. And take advantage of larger venues that are now accepting smaller guests lists so you can ‘spread out’ to meet the 1.5 metres requirement indoors.

5. The new bonbonniere is hand sanitiser – provide each guest with their own personal bottle as a keepsake.

6. Plated food to each individual’s tastes – the grazing table trend we love so much is most likely on hold for a little while, so a return to a la carte dining is a great alternative.

7. Temperature check guests on arrival and pop sanitiser stations in various locations around your ceremony and reception.

8. Plan to limit the timeframe of your wedding. Have a defined start and end time, and choose to minimise the number of hours people are in contact as much as possible.

9. Have a micro wedding now and plan for a big party celebration when restrictions ease.

10. Simplify everything. And let love lead the way.
