Planning a wedding is an exciting experience, but it can also quickly become stressful. Unfortunately, your stress levels may increase if an unexpected challenge, such as a pandemic, is thrown into the mix. While you may not be able to get married until things have calmed down, planning a wedding during the recent COVID-19 crisis is still possible.
It is important to contact your wedding vendors as soon as possible. Even if your wedding is still a few months away, you will want to understand their cancellation policy. If your wedding is unable to happen due to the pandemic, you should be able to get your money back, or you should be able to reschedule. If you do need to reschedule, and your vendor is no longer able to work with you on your chosen day, you should be able to get a refund.
Currently, it is unclear how long the pandemic is going to last. While a wedding planned for the next few weeks will likely need to be postponed, one that is a few months away may still be able to happen. Even if your wedding is still a few months away, though, it is a good idea to be ready to postpone your nuptials. While you don’t want to change the date too soon, it is a good idea to not wait until the last minute either.
If you plan on getting married as soon as you can, your guest turnout will likely be at least slightly smaller than you originally anticipated. You may have people who are reluctant to travel or who are still uncomfortable gathering in large groups. If you want, you can plan a smaller ceremony as soon as you can and then hold a larger celebration once things have calmed down more.
