When you picked your date, booked your vendors and started dreaming about decor, you likely weren’t thinking about the possibility of a global pandemic and how it would impact your wedding. I had the opportunity to take part in a discussion on CBC Daybreak about navigating the 2020 wedding season in these uncertain times. Listen below.
The three main takeaways:
- Couples & vendors: we are all in this together. Being a wedding industry professional means being in a labor of love (pun intended). Vendors are so committed to their couples and will do everything in their power to accommodate them.
- We recommend waiting 6-8 weeks before your wedding date to make a final decision about postponing. Because the situation changes every day, we cannot predict what the world will look like come your wedding date. If you choose to postpone, remember that there will be limited availability, so you’ll need to be flexible. (Trend alert: weekday weddings)
- Postpone, don’t cancel! This is the only way to ensure that you don’t lose the money (and time) you’ve already invested in your big day.
On that note
Our hearts go out to those of you who are facing this unprecedented situation. Just remember that you will get married and your wedding will be a beautiful celebration — no matter when it happens!
