Zoom weddings require that you think outside the box to make your wedding personal without guests there.
The next best thing to have family and friends attending your wedding is having a life size replica of them for the photo ops.
At this zoom wedding the bride and groom are posing with five family members who are “there” but not there. They are life sized cardboard mannequins of their images.
And those same cardboard family members are repositioned to pose with the bride and groom and the family members who were able to attend the wedding in person.
In another zoom wedding the bride, Erin Hensley, is standing beside a cardboard cut-out mannequin version of her father. Kinda looks like he is escorting her down the aisle, right?
Although we sell life size fiberglass mannequins at Mannequin Madness – which some restaurants have been using to fill their venue -this is not practical for one off events like a wedding.
So we partnered with Cardboard Cutout Standees, a company that creates custom life size cardboard “mannequins.” When you place an order from this link you will get a 10% discount when you type MM10 at check out.
They typically ship next day and the shipping is free. You can have a cardboard mannequin out of any .jpg image.
Say for example you choose an outdoor venue for your wedding so you can social distance with your guests. But the venue doesn’t allow pets. You can have a cardboard mannequin version of your fur baby there.
So, now, your fur baby and any significant family members who can’t be there can be in attendance.
And once we are allowed to gather in groups again and you have a vow renewal ceremony, the cardboard mannequins can be used as decoration for the room. Or as a novelty gift to give to the person whose image is on the mannequin.
Here are a few of our favorite examples of very creative zoom weddings. Although neither couple used cardboard mannequins, you can see how having a few cardboard mannequins present would have made the wedding even better.
Once again use this link to place your order for a cardboard mannequin and type in MM10 at check out for your 10% discount. If you are going to order more than 50 of them, contact us for our bulk pricing discount: firstname.lastname@example.org.
