Check the rules at your chosen venue
It’s hard to keep track of all the ever-shifting rules and regulations that have come in and out of force over the past year. Fortunately, it’s the job of a professional wedding venue that regularly hosts events to stay abreast of the current rules. By checking in with them, you can find out what you need to know about safely hosting your event, at least from the perspective of what you’re legally required to do.Your chosen venue may even have rules in place regarding seating capacity and the wearing of masks that actually are more stringent than state and local regulations. It’s a good rule of thumb to follow whatever recommendations they have as well, because it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Move your wedding outdoors
Even if you weren’t already planning it, explore holding your wedding outdoors this year. It’s tempting to assume that the worst is behind us with regards to the virus, but with new variants that are more contagious and many people still hesitant to get vaccinated, the safest course of action is to keep everyone outside, where viral spread is very rare. Fortunately, there are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to an outdoor Oregon wedding. Whether you prefer the natural beauty of the Oregon Coast, the elegance of Willamette Valley’s wine region, or the majestic views afforded by the Mt. Hood area, you really can’t go wrong.
Provide a live stream option
Even with all the good progress with the vaccine, many people are still hesitant to travel, especially in the confined space of an airplane. This may mean some of your loved ones will not be able to make it to your wedding in the near future. Rather than wait another year, many couples are electing to live stream their ceremony. A wedding live stream ensures that your long distance relatives and friends will still be able to take part in your big day, without putting themselves at risk. This is especially convenient for older guests, who may be hesitant to travel regardless of the circumstances. At DJ Cutt Entertainment, our professional live streaming equipment makes it possible to stream your wedding online from pretty much anywhere in Oregon, reliably and affordably.
