8 Tips for Postponing Your Wedding Amid The COVID-19 Pandemic

As at 20th of March in South Carolina, there have been at least 81 cases of Coronavirus. The CDC as of March 15, 2020, also advised the postponement of weddings for at least 8 weeks. This is essential if we as a country want to contain the spread of the virus. This means that till mid-May, it would not be advisable to hold your wedding in the United States. But what if my wedding is already fixed for this time? How do I go about this? Well, we at Dazzle (Events) by Andrea feel your pain and so we’ve tried to put together some answers and helpful tips for you in the next few paragraphs.

  • Let Your Vendors Know Immediately

The first people to contact are the people who are helping you put your wedding together. They will most likely be helpful and understanding and will offer suggestions on the next steps where your wedding is concerned like securing a future date and contacting your guests.

  • Read Your Contracts Again

You’ll have to go through your contracts again to understand your options for this situation. If it is proving a bit difficult for you, consult a lawyer to help.

  • Review Your Wedding Insurance

If you were lucky enough to have secured insurance for your wedding, you should look at it again now. Every plan is different so make sure to contact your insurance agent to confirm whether cases like this are covered by your plan.

  • Communicate Effectively with Your Guests

The best way to do this is to pass your message across using your wedding website. A simple message that is straight to the point will do just fine. You could also send an email or make phone calls.

  • Try to Help Your Guests

This would be especially nice for out of town guests who have booked accommodations already. Try to ask if you can get a full or partial refund. They would appreciate it.

  • Be Flexible

This will come in when working with your vendors to reschedule. Keep an open mind and understand that you may have to accept changes to things like days of the week and more.

  • Let Yourself Feel A Little Sad

Acknowledge your feelings. They are very valid. While we may be facing bigger issues as a country, your wedding is also important to you. Voice out to your partner or a friend it can help you cope.

  • Celebrate the Day Anyway

You might not be able to do your wedding on that day, but the date will always hold significance for you. You could enjoy your favorite bottle of wine and watch a movie at home to commemorate it.

If you’re looking for wedding planners to help ease the stress of this time and plan your future wedding, we at Dazzle (Events) by Andrea will gladly do so for you. Give us a call today!
