The world is facing an unexpected situation due to the pandemic, and its reflections are affecting every life. It is a real challenge to deal with this ever-evolving situation, especially when we plan a celebration like a wedding. The government of Australia has restricted the count of wedding attendees to twenty numbers, and the people must follow ‘one person per 4 square metre rule‘ when in the event.
Here at Symphony Events, we are also reviving our practices to safeguard the health of couples, guests, and employees. We are at your service, supporting you throughout the process of planning a safe and elegant wedding. We continuously update our work process according to the government’s latest COVID-19 rules and information from the experts in the wedding domain.
It is essential to restructure every step involved in the planning of the big event. Here are some points to help you through the wedding planning process amid the COVID-19.
Social distancing is the best way to deal with the coronavirus, and the government has already passed a 4 square meter rule to ensure it. Make sure that our wedding arrangements also allow the four-meter physical distance between the attendees. The attendees’ number is restricted to twenty to ensure social distance norms.

Of course, changing the plan is challenging and stressful, but it is never impossible to set beautiful moments with alternative strategies. When it comes to postponing the wedding dates, contact the vendors to make sure they are available on them. Book and block the days to avoid confusion later on. Be mindful of the changes of dates; it is better to note them down on a calendar or mark in a diary.
The guests must be aware of the changes made and about the backup plans. The situation can be an emotional toll on the guests as well. Several feel guilty to celebrate in a situation when many are suffering badly. It is your responsibility to influence them and make them comfortable with the event.
Even if you have no changes in the plans, communicate with the guests because they will be expecting confirmation in this uncertain situation.
If you postpone the wedding, make sure that you notify the changed date to all the guests through prints or online platforms. If you have set up a website for the wedding, update it with the latest information on the wedding function.
With many wedding venues shutting down and several others refuse to take new commitments. So plan your wedding, considering the availability of venues and other vendors of the domain.
Technology has advanced and made it easy to manage things virtually. Make use of social media platforms and virtual communication platforms for shopping and dealing with vendors. The situation demands to promote social distancing, and online platforms prove to the best counterparts that help in planning and executing successful events.
There are pros and cons to sharing photos in social media, especially when the images are set for public view. Carefully share a few numbers of photos and try to avoid the attendee photos as it can hurt the feelings of many who wished to but couldn’t attend the event. Also, displaying wedding photos that don’t stick to the government laid protocols can invite legal complications to the couple.
It’s normal to feel stressed when you plan for a big event in the current situation. Remember to prioritize your health; after all, weddings are very personal events, build on the strong base of happiness and care. Do not panic about dealing with this unfortunate situation. When it comes to arranging a big event like a wedding, challenges are a part of it; but now the challenges have adopted a new face, which is unfamiliar to us. Let us work together against the odds and make the dream event a reality.
