  • We assume it’s challenging to hold a proper wedding these days with the looming pandemic and all. There’s just too much to think about, enforcing adequate safety protocols and all that at a huge reception.

    PLANNING TO GET MARRIED?

    It’s either you limit your guests or just hold the entire thing in a venue big enough to fit a hundred people standing at least a meter apart. The latter is possible, but it’ll just be too expensive.

    This couple, however, found a workaround: A drive-through wedding reception.

    The chapel and reception areas were both open-air venues, so that meant Arjanmar Rebeta (the groom) and Khaye Medina (the bride) could invite more people compared to a closed-venue celebration. With the addition of the drive-through reception, more guests were allowed to join while observing proper social distancing, the groom told reportr.

    The reception proper was held at the isawan just outside the Holy Sacrifice’s Parish in UP Diliman. Judging by the photos, the guests invited for the drive-through reception simply parked along the street and went down to grab a bite from the buffet, which by the way, consisted mostly of street food.

    One of the best parts is the couple only spent about Php10,000 for everything, thanks to the setup. It’s frugal, and we like it because it sure does look like a lot of fun. As a matter of fact, the post has already gone viral as of this writing. You can check out some of the photos from the wedding below.

    Before the wedding ceremony, the couple also apparently did a prenup shoot “around the world.” Well, sort of.

    The photos were taken around somewhere in Marikina where many streets are actually named after different countries. That’s one way to “travel” during this pandemic, we suppose.
