DOWAGIAC, Mich. (AP) — cardboard cutout will create for a simple wedding where only the groom and bride present just like Michigan couples decide to do during the Covid 19 pandemic.
A packaging company decided to donate more than 100 cardboards cutouts to pose as friends and family after Dan Stugliks and Amy Simonson decided wedding plans were changed. These cardboard cutouts are present at their wedding on behalf of guests who could not attend the wedding because of lockdown.
Menasha Packaging Co. creates more than 100 cardboard cutouts to resemble guests young and old, tall and short, with short hair, long hair and ponytails.
Ted Harris, design and customer service manager at Menasha, said the Herald-Palladium that “(Stuglik) was just looking for a general person shape, but I was able to make a little bit more realistic audience for them,”
A Coloma Township police officer, Stuglik, said he would never forget Menasha for serving him to do something unique and special for this soul mate.
“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.”
