It's May 15, 2020 and our world has changed drastically because of Covid-19. Many of us are stuck in our homes and if we are not, we are just starting to come out of quarantine unsure of what will come and when we can gather again. The Wedding and Events industry is powering through every day, pivoting plans for our clients and guiding them to make safe decisions for themselves and their guests while honoring the countless hours that went into planning these celebrations. Unfortunately, we are now at a point where we look out to the rest of 2020 and the vision of hosting gathers of 100+ people in the manner are used to and have planned for is unlikely. The decision to postpone is not as simple as it was a couple months ago. While we still recommend the same thought process from our previous post - which will help you get to place that you are ready to move forward with a plan b - we're now sharing some updated insight we have learned from our clients and want to help you find the best plan b for you and your fiance.
Option 1: Copy and Paste to 2021
Is it important to you to keep ALL of your original plans for your Wedding? Whether that be ensuring all your guests can attend or keeping the same date, you are willing to push it a year out in order to move forward with the Wedding you have always envisioned. THINGS TO CONSIDER:
Love is not postponed! It may feel like you are putting your life on hold for another year or your life plan is being thrown off for a year - the beautiful part of getting married is that you are committing to your partner forever - and this time is included in that! You're already on your journey.
You may incur additional costs with your vendors to accomodate for 2021 or premium date pricing. While it is an uncertain and stressful time, these are reasonable asks to ensure your vendors are available for you, which includes them getting through these tough financial times. They are worth it to keep your Wedding vision on track!
