To Cancel or Postpone?
Depending on how your contract works some couples could be on the hook to pay for everything if they try to change a wedding’s date. Most industry vendors have dealt with weather issues and government shutdowns. A pandemic is different. We don’t recommend canceling because you might lose your investment. Postponing might even mean not having your wedding until 2021.
Weddings are by definition all about bringing people together to celebrate your love, which becomes difficult during a period of social distancing. It’s not the same but use technology to help include those who can’t attend in person. Live stream is perfect in situations like these!
Virtual guest books and prerecorded speeches can go along way! When it comes to wedding food and drinks, skip communal and self-service options like buffets, even if plated options are more expensive. Coffee stations are fun but one cough everything is contaminated. We recommend service on all food and beverage items. Stay away from dipping fountains!
We’re Here To Help!
The uncertainty is the hardest part. How does someone just continue planning like everything’s normal, and it’s going to be fine in May, which it very well could be? Or do you start making your backup plan? It’s a question that applies to many American families right now: Should they cancel their dream wedding or take the risk? Should they be cautious, even if it’s painful? For those shelling out thousands of dollars for what’s supposed to be the most magical day of their lives, the question is even more pressing.
