Couples all over the world have postponed their weddings due to the pandemic. A Bridebook study from April estimated that around 12 million weddings worldwide would be affected. Meanwhile, some couples have decided to push through with their plans with the help of Zoom.
As you might’ve seen on social media or the news, Zoom weddings are either fully virtual—both the couple and priest doing the ceremony via video call—or partial where only the immediate family and the priest are allowed in the venue while friends watch from their homes. If you’re planning your own, here are surefire ways to prevent a Zoomzilla moment.
Prepare the rings
Dress and suit? Check. Guest list? Check. Entourage? Check. Don’t forget the most important part of the wedding: the rings!
If you haven’t chosen one, don’t fret because you have several options. You can go for 14-karat gold rings from Diagold, which are studded with diamonds.
For silver rings, Odysseus Suarez has you covered. These also have diamonds on them.
If you can’t decide between gold and silver, get both at Suarez and Sons, where they sell dainty wedding rings.
Remember this moment
It’s understandable if you’re not hiring an official photographer this time. We suggest getting an Instax camera and extra film so you can do impromptu photo shoots after the ceremony, or ask a family member to take photos while you’re reciting your vows.
