Are you going to have 100 people at the church and your house, or is it that the restrictions are up to 100 people now

@augstbabie78:  You can still have some decoration and celebrate in a way that feels special and meaningful for you. At home celebrations used to be more of the norm anyway.

Also, I think a lot of people are grieving the fact that they won’t have a wedding that is like X idea they had in their mind (based on “normal” weddings in “normal” times) which makes absolute sense, but are forgetting that having this very particular style of wedding will always be memorable for the times that we’ve been navigating.

If you can figure out what are the elements that make a wedding feel like a wedding for you and incorporate those as best you can, I think you can still get the feeling of being a bride within these current guidelines.

I had this with my family. We got married outside and then people came back to our house for the reception. I didn’t decorate, didn’t have my wedding dress on, but I still felt like a bride. That being said – I am a very low-key person, so that may have something to do with it. We had a big reception planned at a beautiful venue we had to cancel, so it took some time to come to terms with it. That being said, I wouldn’t change how it happened. It was an intimate celebration amongst my nearest and dearest. I am just very happy to be married and was over this COVID crap!

If it helps, the best, most fun and most memorable weddings I’ve been to were the ones where the reception was hosted at home!

Please please please make sure that 100 number is correct. I know some provinces have set capacity limits at church, but weddings are still much MUCH less than regular service. Ex where I am only 10 people can attend an indoor wedding, and everyone has to give a contact # for tracing, and no receptions incl home (I assume the eating/drinking part is what theyre worried about). I think AB is max 10 people, and Ontario just announced new restrictions which is NO reception inside, and I think 10 people outdoors.
