What should I consider if I have an upcoming wedding?

These are recommendations, and not requirements by Davis & Grey Farms.  You might take these into consideration for planning and hosting your celebration with us.

  • Don’t host a receiving line at your event
  • Don’t allow guests to serve themselves at the buffet line.  Discuss meal service with your caterer and consider a plated meal, or at least a caterer-served buffet.
  • Don’t use cloth napkins.  Help reduce the risk after hand to mouth contact and consider paper napkins instead.
  • Don’t allow guests to re-use cups.  Consider plastic or additional glassware to reduce the risk.
  • Do: Check with your insurance provider about your policy’s coverage on hosting, canceling, transferring, vendor cancelations, Act of God causes and traveling during this time.
  • Do: Communicate with your guests and bridal party.  Consider a wedding website, Facebook Group, or a central place for communication.  Share the CDC guidelines concerning not attending your event if not feeling well (even if it just suspected to be allergies), running a fever within the last 48 hours, and washing hands frequently during your event.
  • Do: Have a plan for RSVPs and final guest counts, especially if your event is soon or guests are traveling from afar.  Encourage guests to follow the 3 C’s too: Cover, Clean, Contain.
  • Do: Check the travel resources above for information, especially in regards to travel for your honeymoon or guests making preparations to attend your wedding.
  • Do: Communicate with your vendors and your venue team here if you have questions.

Thank you for keeping all guests safe by keeping the follow CDC guidelines while attending an event at Davis & Grey Farms:
