Custom Masks We know how difficult it can be to have your guests wear masks during an event. However, when it comes to custom masks, your guests may appreciate the gesture and detail and would want to wear them. So make sure that you have custom masks at your event and that they are readily available to each of your guests. You may customize the mask with your logo, your initials, the guests’ initials, or even a quirky quote about social distancing!

Moreover, custom masks have become a new trend these days. You see them all around weddings and other get-togethers where the bride and groom each have their masks on with their initials or simple bride and groom on matching linen.

Use of Plexi Table Dividers by Wedding Planners

If you think your guests won’t be comfortable sitting far apart, trying to have a conversation, try a plexi glass table divider. The plexi glass table divider will ensure that your guests are safely seated at one table with less chances of disease transmission. With the table divider, they would still be able to engage in a conversation and stay safe. Win-win!
Suggestions from Wedding Consultants to use Strategic Foliage
While you’d be able to separate guests at a single table, how do you separate various tables from one another? Easy! By strategically placing foliage or another décor in between tables to create distance.

Even Luxury Wedding Planners are using Self-Serving Catering Method

Contactless delivery is becoming the norm these days, and this is something you can incorporate in your event as well. Think about ways you can have a contactless serving portal where caterers could place plated meals and guests can help themselves as dinner or lunch is served.

Don’t forget to pair these self-serving portals with a sanitizing station as well!
