Your wedding day is coming.  And planning your big day is a process that’s probably taken you months, if not years.  Everything from flowers to photos, you’re all set, and then…

Yes, and then.  Coronavirus hits, and looks like the effects on the wedding industry (like just about every industry) will be dramatic, and likely around for a while..  Many couples are postponing and turning spring dates into summer summer, but even that’s up in the air.  We don’t know when (if ever) we’ll be able to have large gatherings again, and most weddings are exactly the large gatherings that will be avoided for a while.

Some couples have opted for smaller gatherings and using some type of live-streaming service to let previously invited guests join them online.  “It’s not perfect, but it was the best available option, aside from postponing for months” says a recent bride.

If you’re thinking of postponing, check your vendor contracts.  While most will do whatever they can to accommodate your new date, it’s difficult for them too.  They’re generally small businesses, and they may have little flexibility.

In the end, it’ll be a time that we all remember, and it’s important that everyone stay healthy, and adhere to CDC guidelines.
