Planning your dream wedding during a pandemic.
A dream wedding does not only come with a price, but it also requires a generous amount of time for preparations. With the sudden onset of the pandemic, several wedding preparations and celebrations had to be unfortunately canceled. Despite the panic and fear that COVID-19 has brought us, this could also be a time for self-reflection and making essential changes for your much-awaited dream wedding. Below are simple and practical steps that you can take before tying the knot as we all wait for this pandemic to be over.
1. Communicate with your support system.
During these uncertain times, it is always best to review your event insurance and inform the company involved immediately. In doing so, they can offer you an alternative solution or options with regard to their insurance policies and possible venue shut down. These insurance policies will more than likely help you in making major decisions on your wedding, such as a possible postponement or deciding to continue with the agreed upon date of the wedding.
2. Build up a reliable response team
For once in a lifetime events like a wedding, it is necessary to be partnered with an efficient team of wedding planners and coordinators. You all will work as one to come up with a game plan regarding the rescheduling of your wedding and the adjusted meeting dates with the caterers, florists, and the vendors alike.
3. Send out a heartwarming letter to your beloved guests.
As much as you hate breaking the sad news to everyone, your guests will appreciate and respect your decision at this time. It is necessary to inform your guests about the changes to your wedding and also acknowledge their anticipated response to your decision.
4. Have a quiet conversation with your partner
Now that you both have plenty of time to commit to each other’s needs, an intimate and quiet conversation with your partner truly helps during uncertain times. Layout everything on the table – alternative options for the wedding, to postpone or to push continue, and especially what is at stake. This includes precautionary measures during the celebrations and the pros and cons in the areas of financial, health and safety, and the overall cost.
5. Constantly communicate with your wedding planner
After careful and thorough discussions have been had, and decisions have been made, it is best to relay these messages to your connections, support system, and most especially to your wedding planner. Informing them ahead of time will spare both sides from unplanned changes in the venue and other wedding arrangements.
