At the beginning of the year 2019, our lives have been turned upside down, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. And, while stuck in our four-walled cells, we still hope and plan the approaching events of our life. This year has been called the year of canceled weddings by some of the publishers and news broadcasters. But, I propose you don't let any of the mentioned circumstances spoil your plans. In today's post, we are going to talk to you about five things to consider before planning your wedding in the year 2021. 

1. Mass Vaccination is Coming

The first and the most important thing you should do before starting your wedding planning is to relax and breathe. More and more countries are receiving vaccines against novel Coronavirus, and that means that in the nearest time everyone is going to have access to vaccination. Therefore, your wedding ceremony is going to happen in 2021 without any doubt. Forget laggy Zoom parties, shortly, everyone will be able to purchase their evening dresses, and prom suits, and enjoy all the important events of their life surrounded by real people and emotions.

2. Plan the Ceremony Between March & August

Now, when your heart rate is slowed, and you are ready to kick off your wedding preparations, it is time to start checking on your guest list. Plan the ceremony for the second, or third trimester of 2021, when most of the pandemic restrictions will be canceled, most of your guests will be vaccinated, and wedding venues will be prepared for the long-awaited visitors. Plus, the time between March and August is one of the best periods of the year to envelope your vows, as the weather is going to be ideal for an event like a wedding.

3. Fast & Simple Weddings

Covid-19 has definitely changed our lifestyles and our perception of time. One of the biggest wedding trends for 2021, according to a Harpers Bazaar article called "What will weddings look like in 2021?", is going to be a fast pace wedding. It means that the whole ceremony is going to be organized and realized in less than 48 hours. And that only means no time for complicated decisions, just go with the flow, and fulfill your ceremonies in a simple, yet sophisticated way. If you think it is an impossible task, you'll be surprised when you'll find out that it is not. Call your closest friends, throw on your rapidly-chosen wedding suits, order white flowers from the closest flower shop and you are ready to say yes!

4.. Larger Spaces are Still Necessary

Even though all of your guests will be vaccinated, it is still best to hold your wedding in a larger space with big windows, tall ceilings, and nice ventilation. Maybe, you'll be able to find a suitable venue with an open terrace or can do to the aisle in the open space. Any of these variations are necessary to keep you, the guests, and other personnel safe from any possible viruses.

5. Honeymoon Arrangements

It is hard to imagine a successful ceremony without an upcoming honeymoon. It is like a gourmet dessert that comes after the delicious main course. Newly-wedded couples deserve to have the sweetest honeymoon even in a post-pandemic situation. To make the best out of the situation you should be flexible with your travel choices. Of course, we all want to travel to the most exotic place in the world while on honeymoon, but in the current situation, it is best to opt for a less extraordinary destination. 

Spacious resort locations secluded on islands, half islands and archipelagos are going to be the best choice. Places like Nizuc luxury hotel & villas, which are settled on the waterfront and surrounded by beaches offer serene and more undisturbed honeymoon. Make sure to have both health and travel insurance arranged, just to guarantee your safety. 

On the other hand, if your wedding budget allows it, you can always opt for a private jet flight. Depending on the type of flight, quantity of people, and destination private jet flight cost may vary from $1,500 to $3,000 per hour of flying on a small plane. Such a private jet will accommodate 4-6 passengers, which is more than enough to take you and your partner for a honeymoon.

The Takeaway

Hopefully, this post will make you at least a tiny bit more relaxed before your big day in 2021. Maybe, it will even help you to make the right decisions, and make your feel more secure during these uneasy times. 

Lots of love,
