How to plan a wedding durning the covid-19 pandemic

If you have found yourself planing a wedding right in the middle of the Covid-19 virus you may be looking towards at your Wedding vendors for guidance. If your confused on which direction to go, we understand. No-one predicted 2020 Wedding couples would be effected by a pandemic, but we are here to help you navigate your options.


Should you Reschedule or Cancel?

In order to utilize your current vendors and not lose money we highly suggest rescheduling. The best way to reschedule your date is to reach out to your venue and all vendors such as: Photographer, videographer, DJ, Florist.

Support Small Businesses

Know that by rescheduling your date means you are helping your wedding vendors in the long run. By doing this, you are supporting their small business by keeping their lights on, and food on the tables for their families. Know that we appreciate this more than you could ever realize!


Reach out to your Vendors ASAP

The best advice I can give you is to reach out to your vendors and open up the lines of communication. We have personally reached out to all of our couples that are affected by this. Ask your vendors what your options are. Talk to them about your ideal backup plan. Make sure you chat with your venue and find out what dates they have available to reschedule. Be sure to ask your vendors if they are open for those dates. Once you lock in a new date for 2020, please make sure you are signing a new contract that reflects those changes made. If you are an April, May, June couple I highly suggest reaching out to all of your vendors immediately. You are the couples who are at risk. If you are July wedding I would hold off for now. Give yourself a little time to see where this is all heading.
