Asking as a guest to several upcoming weddings where vulnerable family members will be in attendance, including children under 12, the elderly, and the immunocompromised.  

What do you think is reasonable to require of guests in terms of being vaccinated or providing Covid testing prior to attendance? If reasonable, how should that be conveyed? Is it appropriate to have an actual vaccine RSVP, ask for proof, post a request on the website or any of the above? 

Thanks!

Here’s another question from @beethree

When do we hit post-COVID? With vaccination percentages still below 50% in many areas of the world and variants on the rise when will it really be safe to hold a large indoor wedding? How do you feel about brides & grooms inquiring about guests’ vaccine status?

I’m not sure when we can start saying we are post-COVID. Are you referring to weddings next year?

I would imagine there are certain wedding trends from before covid that mostly disappeared during covid. Are there any you expect to see less of going forward as a result?

@laurenekay:  Only 3% of people canceled 2020 weddings? Seems like the stats would be much higher than that.

@DrAtkins:  I’m not shocked by that percentage.  I only know one couple who postponed their wedding in 2020.  Most people moved forward and followed the guidelines of their state.  

300-400 person weddings were reduced to 10-50 people, but now a lot of them are having additional parties with their full guest list.

I’m thinking that represents 100% cancelled and a much bigger number would be postponed or downsized?

I look at my photographer’s and videographer’s websites sometimes to see what people are doing during corona times. Weddings that are featured have at the most about 20-25 guests. There are some too that it was only the couple or they might have immediate family included. I haven’t seen any large number of guests we are used to like before Corona (unless they are just not posting it in their websites).
