How to Ask Your Wedding Guests about Their Vaccination Status
As we move out of lockdown and weddings start to pick up again, it’s important to remember that everyone will have different comfort levels regarding getting vaccinated and attending events with large guest numbers.
Asking your guests about their vaccination status is a sensitive topic, and we recommend approaching the subject with compassion and understanding. It’s important to remember that your guests are your closest loved ones, and they may have differing opinions when it comes to getting vaccinated.
If you’re planning to go ahead with your postponed wedding and would like to check where your guests are at with their vaccination status, a simple text or email would be the most effective way to communicate with them. You can also update your wedding website with a health and safety section that tells guests what protocols you’ll be following.
Alternatively, if you haven’t yet sent your save-the-dates or wedding invitations, you could include an additional health and safety information card in your invitation suite. Guests can RSVP for their attendance and vaccination status, so you’ll know in advance if they plan to get the vaccine.
Sample text for your asking your guests about their vaccination status:
We’ve been waiting for this day for what feels like forever and can’t wait to finally celebrate our love with our closest loved ones. In accordance with the latest government guidelines, we want to create a safe and comfortable environment for our wedding celebrations.
In light of this, we ask that all attending guests be fully vaccinated (if you can get the vaccine) and follow local guidelines regarding wearing masks in indoor spaces. We hope you understand our request and would appreciate it if you could please only RSVP attending if you plan to be fully vaccinated by the date of our wedding.
We also completely understand if this means you’d rather not share this occasion with us, and we look forward to celebrating with you at another time!
