A wedding with guests is a big no no amidst coronavirus pandemic. But a wedding without guests is also not the funniest of things, right? A couple from Michigan was stuck in a similar situation as their plans to have that gala wedding were flushed down the drain by the current world situation.
However, to ensure that Amy Simonson and Dan Stuglik do not “miss” the guests at their wedding, a packaging company came in to donate some guests.
The packaging company donated more than 100 cardboard cutouts to pose as stand-ins for the family and friends who could not attend the wedding because of Michigan’s stay-at-home order.
Menasha Packaging Co. in Coloma made cutouts of men, women and children. And gave them long hair, short hair and ponytails to resemble the guests that couldn’t show up.
″(Stuglik) was just looking for a general person shape, but I was able to make a little bit more realistic audience for them,” Ted Harris, customer service and design manager at Menasha, told The Herald-Palladium.
The groom later said that he would forever be thankful to the Menasha Packaging Co. for doing the same as he didn’t want to get wed in an empty church.
“I wanted to do something (creative) so she wouldn’t walk down the aisle to an empty church,” he said. “That was a painful part, that her wedding was being stripped away from her, but Menasha helped bring a little back,” he added.
