COVID Wedding Planning Guide

Planning to Keep Your Wedding in 2020?

How to plan a less-risky socially-distanced wedding, and still have a great time!

After being in the wedding industry for over 7 years, coordinating close to 500 weddings, and planning my own wedding almost 6 years ago, I've seen and learned a whole lot!

The NYC-based wedding band collective I co-own and manage along with my husband - The Metropolitan Players - has had the pleasure of performing a couple of weddings in the midst of the pandemic. We're on track to play a few more weddings over the course of 2020, and our couples have been asking us for guidance throughout the process.

With a couple COVID weddings under our belt, lots of research and education on the current situation, and attendance at several wedding industry webinars, I wanted to put together a guide to help couples who are deciding to host their weddings this year!

PS: Drew and I put together a video and blog post about planning your wedding during COVID, and you can find that HERE! It's centered on our experience as a band, including ways to still incorporate special moments, dancing, etc. The guide I'm providing here is a bit more broad, and is focused on more aspects of COVID wedding planning than just the music!

Let's be real, planning a wedding is stressful anyway - but planning during a pandemic brings on a whole new level of stress. So I hope this guide will help ease a little bit of the overwhelm, by offering some ideas and insights to make the process just a little smoother!
