Luckily the end is in sight and there may be a day in the distant future when everyone is having a great time at a large wedding without masks and hand sanitizer. Unfortunately, that time hasn't come yet and we might be looking at another year or so of protection from disease.

However, that doesn't mean that we can't still celebrate love in the age of the pandemic.

If even one person is unsafe, then everyone has the potential to be unsafe. No matter the category that you fall into, there are guidelines to follow to ensure that everyone is having fun and staying safe.
