Announcing a new wedding script created with the special circumstances of Covid in mind!




Are you dreaming of an intimate marriage celebration with friends and family, despite the physical distance that the coronavirus has caused? Are you searching for that ideal combination of joyful in-person gathering, and precautions to keep your loved ones safe? You’re not alone -- sweethearts everywhere understand!



We’ve added a new sample script to our Library… 


A Covid-safe Wedding Ceremony Script with Flowers and Lights



This warm and welcoming script is written specifically for pandemic weddings like yours. 


It’s tailored to suit the small in-person minimony, micro-wedding, and elopement ceremonies of the season, and can be easily modified to fit any hybrid wedding (with virtual guests) too! 


What makes this script unique is its attention to Covid safety, with suggestions on planning and set up, to make each part of the ceremony safe and charming. 


Friends and family will spread out under an open sky or colorfully decorated tents, wearing their most stylish muffs, capes, cowls, brushed velvet, and faux-fur glamor, perhaps cozied up beside glowing heat lamps and campfires.


Written to inspire feelings of closeness and connection, and decorated with dancing lights, lanterns, and flowers, this ceremony celebrates love’s ability to overcome any obstacle -- even a pandemic! 


Celebrate love - safely!
