As people get vaccinated and the States restrictions lift, there are a few events that we’re all excited to return to. While everyone will feel comfortable to attend specific events and take off their masks at their own pace, it’s safe to say most people are eager to live without the tension surrounding every gathering. Here are some events that we will return to and a few ways you can feel more comfortable about attending them.

Weddings

Since the pandemic began, weddings have been postponed or observed in a social-distant and masked ceremony and reception. As COVID-19 gets under control, weddings will be able to resume without all the extra thought and work. If you’re planning on getting married, now may be the time to set the date and take a look at wedding websites for ideas. Planning for far-out will not only give you peace of mind about the pandemic, it will give you more time to plan. Weddings always take a lot of time to put together, if you embrace that coming out of the pandemic is a long-term process it won’t be that much of a burden to set the date in the future. Scheduling the date far out will give you peace of mind.

Large Birthday Parties

One thing that people have been missing for a while is large birthday parties. Not only have people been prohibited from having huge celebrations, but there also haven’t been gatherings for life events such as quinceañeras, sweet 16s, 18th and 21st birthday parties, and more. Birthdays aren’t typically that significant as you get older, young people want to celebrate their milestone birthdays with a large party, but a lot of people want to have a big celebration now that they haven’t been allowed to. Whatever age you are, large birthday parties have been missed and will return as individuals get vaccinated and rates of the virus go down. To make you feel more comfortable, host your large birthday party outside.

Retirement & Anniversary Celebrations

When there is a significant event in your life, whether you’re retiring or celebrating an anniversary of 50 years, you probably want to get people together to bring in the new era. A lot of people didn’t get to throw a celebration when they retired due to COVID-19. For these people, retirement didn’t come in a grand celebration. Whatever the event, getting a lot of friends and family together for a gathering is not just fun, it is symbolic to acknowledge a change in your life. Another way to do this is to host an all-vaccinated party.

Conferences

Whether it’s for business, technology, medicine, academics, or something else, conferences haven’t been able to gather in the way they would in a world before the pandemic. Masks will be a part of conferences for a while, but as the virus rates relax more people will be able to interact at these events. Conferences are often centers of communication, engagement, and the exchange of ideas, but there is something in the way when it comes to physical distancing and masks. Attending a conference at a large venue will alleviate some of that anxiety.

Music Festivals

While they are probably the last thing that will return, so many people are excited to be able to go to a music festival again. Some are saying that they think festivals will return in the fall, but this is probably a pipe dream. With so many people who want to party and pack in to see bands, music festivals are a hotbed for COVID-19. Still, when all of this comes to an end, festivals will return. Not only will everyone enjoy them a little bit more, but music festivals will also be joyous occasions where people will be able to let loose again.

These events haven’t been the same since the pandemic again. With fairly stringent CDC guidelines for gatherings and large events, it will take a lot of time to get back to normal but it is important to keep up hope. Events in which hundreds or thousands of people come together without worrying about the virus will take a while to come back. Still, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Soon we will begin returning to the large events that we love, but the social ramifications will last a lot longer than the virus. It is important to be mindful of the changes and dynamics that evolve with opening up socially. Keep your peace of mind and only do whatever you’re comfortable with as we return to some sort of normalcy.
