They say every bride needs to have “Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.” This year, you can add “something plastic to protect you” to the rhyme.
That’s exactly what Emily and Bradley Moody did so they could get married during the pandemic. Emily and her mom outfitted face shields with fairy lights for people to wear, and the safety precautions didn’t end there. There were temperature checks, goodie bags with hand sanitizer and face masks, Sharpies for each person so they could sign the guestbook, tables seating 6 people instead of 10, and many, many more. The Moodys had planned a 200-guest wedding for the end of May. COVID-19 had other plans, so the young couple had to ask themselves a tough question.
“Do we want to wait and have this huge wedding or is it more important to get married and start our lives together?” said Emily.
