When it comes to outdoor weddings, tents and twinkly lights can’t be beat. There is something so magical about being out, in the fresh air, and dancing the night away under the stars and lights. This is also great during the Covid-19 pandemic. More and more weddings are taking place outdoors to help with social distancing.

As for guest lists, 2021 will see weddings become much more intimate. Therefore, be sure to really invite only those with who you have a very close relationship.

One being less expensive, and the second, more special.

From cocktail hours to games, to smores, and ceremonies. It can all be done out in the fresh air and takes into consideration social distancing.
