Wedding Covid Vaccine Etiquette Invitations Australia Blog

 

We’re in our early days of hearing our Government’s plans to move out of COVID lockdown and we’re already seeing that proof of vaccination may be required by your wedding guests. We fully expect these requirements may be the way forward in the wedding industry.

For regions that do not currently require guests to be vaccinated, it may be a requirement of your wedding venue or perhaps your personal preference!

But how can you ask your guests for their vaccination status??

We’ve done a bit of homework for you and provided some examples of appropriate messaging below. We hope this helps prevent any awkwardness with guests and can help you ensure your big day is as safe as it can be.

Here’s to big celebrations of love and weddings being back for good!

 

 

Example One

Dear family and friends,

We are so excited to announce that our wedding can go ahead on our planned date. 

In order to meet Government Health Orders, it is now a requirement that all of our wedding guests must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. We completely understand if you will need to change your RSVP in light of this news and we ask that you let us know by (revised RSVP date) if you can no longer attend.

Thank you for all your kindness and support while we navigated the challenges of planning a wedding during a pandemic.

We have never been more excited to celebrate with you!

With love,

Example Two

Dear family and friends,

For the health and safety of those we love most, we kindly ask that all of our wedding guests are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  

We understand that vaccination is a personal decision and that this news may require some people to change their RSVP. If you need to change your RSVP, we ask that you let us know by (RSVP date).

Thank you for your love and understanding. We can’t wait to celebrate with you! 

With love,
(names)

 

Example Three

Dear family and friends,

We are so excited to announce that our wedding can go ahead on (wedding date) - so it’s time to PARTY!

We know that love is infectious... but unfortunately so is COVID. We politely request that all of our wedding guests be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. If this request means that you have to change your RSVP, there’s no hard feelings! We respect your decision and look forward to celebrating with you in another special way in the near future.

Thank you for supporting our decision as we’ve tackled the wild times of planning a wedding during a global pandemic.

We’ve had to wait extra-long for our big day – so we will celebrate accordingly!

With love and excitement,
