The Covid-19 pandemic has affected our lifestyle and livelihoods in one way or another. The situation is even more challenging for couples who are planning their wedding.
But all is not lost. After all, we survived through some worst scenarios in the past such as 9/11, the dot-com bust, and of course, the 2008 economic recession. And there is one more thing to be excited about. Our Covid-19 wedding planning guide will help you to create a celebration worthy of your love. While we may not have all the solutions to unexpected scenarios like this one, at least you will not go wrong with these three things.
Postpone the Wedding Instead of Cancelling It
Given that the virus is easily spread through the air, organizing a normal wedding may seem impossible. We recommend that you take the time to plan to analyze all the possible options at your disposal.
Things may look different than what you had in mind before the pandemic, as there could be some changes here and there. You may have to take your wedding to a different location than your original choice and probably the wedding may be smaller. But at least, there is one thing that won’t change; you are still marrying the love of your life. For this reason, try as much as possible to make the event memorable and meaningful.
One way is to reschedule the wedding to a future date instead of canceling it altogether. Just put up a plan B to take care of the new date. And the good thing is that when you reschedule your wedding, you are not only giving yourself ample time to come up with something practical, but you are also supporting small businesses involved in pandemic wedding planning.
Keep Cheering Yourself that Everything is “Figure-outable”
If you are overwhelmed with the current situation, simply take a deep breath and remind yourself that ‘everything is figure-outable’. What’s the worst that could happen if you are determined to have a memorable wedding?
In any case, it is only a matter of time before the situation becomes a thing of the past. After the pandemic, we will come out strong. Plus, we will have interesting stories and lessons to pass to our children.
Discuss with Your Vendors about the Impact of the Pandemic
Before you can even think of canceling or postponing your wedding, talk to your vendors and venue administrators. You should explore the impact of this pandemic on your wedding. In most cases, you will need to talk to each stakeholder individually. Most of them will be willing to reorganize your wedding. Of course, there might be some who may stick to the contract. If you are working with a wedding planner, they can relieve you of this stress.
There you have it. Don’t let the COVID-19 pandemic sadden the mode of your wedding!
