DOWAGIAC, Mich. (AP) — Cardboard cutout wedding guests will make for a no longer-so-cookie-cutter wedding as a Michigan couple prepares to tie the knot throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

After Amy Simonson and Dan Stuglik’s wedding plans were disrupted amid the outbreak, a packaging company donated greater than a hundred cardboard cutouts to pose as stand-ins for the circle of relatives and pals who couldn’t attend the wedding this Saturday due to Michigan’s live-at-home order.

Menasha Packaging Co. In Coloma made cutouts to resemble guests tall and brief, young and old, with lengthy hair, brief hair and ponytails.

″(Stuglik) was just looking for a popular individual form, but i used to be capable of make a bit bit extra realistic target market for them,” Ted Harris, customer support and layout manager at Menasha, informed The herald-Palladium.

Stuglik, a Coloma Township police officer, said he’ll all the time be grateful to Menasha for supporting him do some thing unique for his fiancée.

“I desired to do something (innovative) so she wouldn’t stroll down the aisle to an empty church,” he stated. “That was a painful component, that her wedding was being stripped far from her, but Menasha helped carry a bit lower back.”
