It almost feels as if Covid 19 has come and gone. I no longer carry a mask around in my purse or car, and I have enjoyed seeing faces again. I have noticed that wording has changed on the wedding invitations I have been working on.
- Vaccination Requirements- I just finished a wedding invitation that specifically asked all guests to be fully vaccinated.
- Location Requirements- I have also come across venue’s that require masks, this requirement should be clear on the invitation for guests, so there is no misunderstanding. An insert card would be the appropriate place to add this detail. (If the mask requirements change between the time you send your invitation and your event, you can update the information on your wedding website, and if you feel like that isn’t enough, get your Maid of Honor and Best Man to start spreading the word.)
- Destination Weddings- Many of the tropical destinations we love for weddings require proof of vaccination, and if you are traveling out of the country, require a negative covid test to re-enter the USA.
All of these requirements should be stated clearly in your wedding invitation. This information is not appropriate to put on the main invitation, but an insert card included with your wedding invitation, gives your guests information so there are no surprises and you have happy guests!
Tip: If you are requiring your guests to be vaccinated to attend your wedding or you are planning a destination wedding give your guests plenty of time to meet the requirements to attend your wedding. If you are having a destination wedding, you should have sent a Save The Date, 8-10 months before your wedding and send your wedding invitation 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding date.
For Covid requirements, send your wedding invitation at least 3 months prior to your wedding date so your guest have the opportunity to meet your requirements
