Covid-19 has rocked everyone’s world and we know for those of you getting married during a pandemic it can add an extra layer of stress. At Seattle Tiny Wedding we are committed to relieving as much stress as we can and helping you celebrate safely. Following the State of Washington’s rules in place at the time of your event and following the recommendations from the CDC are a top priority for us. Please check out our Covid-19 Preparedness Plan Guidance found here. We have also been certified by the Event Leadership Institute in Pandemic On-Site Protocol.
Seattle Tiny Weddings are designed to get you married during a pandemic! With small guest counts and small vendor teams we can go forward with all of our planned events in Phase 1 of Washington's Event Requirements. Read more about that here.
We will keep our Preparedness Plan updated as regulations change. We will also email a specific plan for each event to our clients prior to their event so everyone is on the same page.
Here are a few answers to commonly asked questions, please reach out to hello@SeattleTinyWedding.com if you have additional questions or concerns.
Currently there are no restrictions on weddings in Washington State, only recommendations. We are observing all recommendations at our events, including keeping them small, allowing for plenty of space, and wearing face coverings. You can find the official document from the state here.
Yes, at the moment Washington does have a mask mandate when in doors. We require guests and all vendors to wear a face covering during the event. If anyone forgets their face covering we will happily supply one. There are some exceptions listed below.
No, anyone speaking during the event such as your officiant and the couple getting married does not have to wear a face covering.
You and any family or wedding party in photographs are allowed to remove their face coverings for the pictures.
The current mask mandate is for vaccinated and non-vaccinated guests while indoors.
No, assigned seating is no longer required. Since this can change at a moments notice we do have a contingency plan in place for all events that allows for assigned seating. We make the process very easy for our couples to navigate.
We ask each guest to fill out a waiver upon arrival and self screen for symptoms. Name and contact information will be collected for each guest in the event they need to be contacted after the event due to an exposure. All vendors are required to fill out the same waiver, self monitor, and will be temperature checked.
No, you must adhere to the rules and guidelines set by the State of Washington, by the venue, and by us.
Things are changing at a rapid pace, we are hopeful with the current rate of vaccinations we will move forward and not backward as time goes on. However, we know these are un-certain times and as planners we want to plan for every possibility. In the event regulations change we will update you as soon as possible as to how this effects you're event. This may mean assigned seating or a different lay out. In the unlikely event we are unable to host the event at all we will work with you to find a new date to host the wedding in the near future.
