5 Things to Do About Your Wedding During This Coronavirus Pandemic
With more than 100 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Northern Virginia as of March 20, 2020. It’s safe to say that most of us are on edge right and wondering about the uncertain future. The CDC has also advised that weddings be postponed for 8 weeks in the US as of March 15, 2020.
First things we at Hunt Country Celebrations advise that you take a moment to breathe. You are not alone in this new territory and we’ll be here to help you navigate it. Here are a few tips from us on how to handle your wedding at this time.
- Where Should I Begin?
Contact your vendors as soon as possible. This will give you time to explore all your options and get a view of how your wedding will be impacted by everything. Try not to panic and remember that your vendors know what is happening and will be aiming to help you as much as possible. Review all your vendor contracts and create a simple backup plan.
- Create A Checklist That Addresses the Following
Your wedding date and if you will need to reschedule
Your wedding venue and its limits
Your guests and their health
Your insurance policy and what it covers.
- If You Do Decide to Reschedule
Move very quickly as lots of couples will be doing the same and you want to catch your venue and vendors still available. Create a contingency plan with your venue and vendors so you are not caught unawares again. Take out insurance for the new date.
- How Should I Communicate with Guests?
If you have a wedding website, place a note on it that points out the following. Whether or not your wedding is still holding, what you are considering at the moment and when you will finally let your guests know.
