The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a change in plans for anyone throwing an event this year—especially couples wanting to wed. But the coronavirus doesn’t have to lead to canceling your big day. Instead, it’s time to think outside the box, starting with a venue that will allow you to say I do and still meet social distance guidelines. Here are a few alternative venues to consider.

And don’t for­get, Generation Tux always offers Free Swatch­es, a Free Home Try-On deliv­ered to the Groom, and suit and tuxe­do rentals to your entire wed­ding par­ty 14 days before an event.

The Backyard

Even before coronavirus appeared, many couples were embracing the idea of getting married at home. Whether it’s the one you already share or one of your parents’ houses, saying I do in the backyard allows you to personalize your wedding day in a unique way. Don’t have a big enough backyard? Look into renting a house with ample outdoor space on Airbnb or Vrbo.

The Front Porch

This gives the at-home wedding a unique twist. “It allows people to gather in the yard and on the street rather than having to walk through your house to get to the backyard,” says Kaitlin Cooper of Kaitlin Cooper Photography.

The Drive-In

Some couples have opted to say I do at the local outdoor movie theatre, with guests watching from their cars and the ceremony broadcast on the big screen.

The Local Park

Call your town hall to see if you might be able to rent out a section of your local park for a few hours.

The Stadium

See if you can get married at a high school or college football field. “With rows of bleachers, it makes it really simple for all of your guests to sit far enough apart while still having a great view of you and your fiancé saying your vows to one another,” says Collins.

The Beach

If your dream is to get married near the water, a nearby beach is still a great location since you can make sure everyone’s seated six feet apart.

The Campsite

Perfect for the couple that loves the great outdoors, hosting your wedding at a campground allows everyone to spread out and stay in their own tents if they choose to.

The Mountains

Take a drive to your favorite mountain top, and invite your immediate family, the officiant, and a photographer to capture the moments. “If you’re feeling sad about not having your entire guest list there, consider having a videographer record the ceremony. Then, once the pandemic is over, you can hold a reception with your guests and have everyone watch the ceremony together,” says Cooper.

The Farm

Live close to a local farm? It can make for a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony and your photos.

Once you choose the right locale, start putting together your wedding day look with our variety of suit, tux, and accessory options!
