So much has changed in the last couple months. We are seeing an unprecedented interruption in our lives and many people are uncertain of the future.

If you are planning a wedding, read on to learn what you can do to be prepared for your upcoming wedding.

Should I cancel my wedding?

So many couples are facing the reality that their wedding may have to be canceled or postponed. How do you plan a wedding during covid-19? If you are getting married in April or May, you will most likely not be able to hold your wedding on that day. Beyond May, everything is up in the air. If you are planning on canceling or rescheduling, contact your vendors as soon as possible. Most vendors will allow you to reschedule to a date later in the year if it is available.

If your wedding is planned for the fall, don’t panic yet. Be proactive and read your contracts with your vendors to see what your options are IF this pandemic lingers. Try not to contact your vendors unless it is necessary, they are busy rescheduling weddings planned for March, April and May.

What if I haven’t booked all of my vendors?

Many couples haven’t booked all of their vendors yet, especially if their wedding is laster on this year. If you are hesitant to book vendors due to the uncertainty of this situation, here are a few things you can do. First, don’t put everything on hold. You may lose out on some great vendors who are still booking fall dates. Continue to reach out to vendors, but ask about their policy in regards to COVID-19. Second, ask your prospective vendors what measures they are taking to combat the spread of COVID-19. Obviously, large group gatherings are a nightmare situation for combatting the spread of a viral disease, but many vendors have put systems in place to help ease the spread.

How to plan a wedding during COVID-19?

Being stuck in your home for a prolonged period is simply not fun. I want to urge everyone to abide by the shutdowns, quarantine measures, social distancing and gathering bans. It is a brutal time but it is necessary and has proven to be effective. So ride this out so we can all get back to living our lives. During this time, you can still continue to plan your wedding. Many things do not require face to face meetings. You can meet with vendors virtually, design invitations and save the dates, look for decor inspiration, begin crafting decorations, or work on music preferences or timelines.
