We all know weddings come with a hefty amount of time for preparations. Regretfully, there are several wedding preparations and celebrations that had to be cancelled because of the ever alarming global pandemic COVID-19. And while we are all in panic mode worrying about our loved ones and essential supplies, this could also be a time to contemplate and make necessary modifications about your much-awaited wedding!
1. An efficient response team is a must.
For big events such as weddings, it is very essential to have an event planner who quickly responds to crises such as this. An efficient event planner must come up with an alternative game plan regarding rescheduling of the wedding itself and the adjusted meetings with the caterers, florists, and other allied vendors.
2.Have a quiet, sit-down talk with your partner
Now that time permits, you and your partner can finally come up with a major decision for the wedding in response to the COVID 19 precautionary measures. It is best to come up with a list of your pros and cons regarding the decision that you have to make. This constitutes the discussion about what is at stake – health, financial investment, effects of postponement or cancellation, and safety of everyone, etc.

3. Coordinate with your connections and support system
Review your event insurance and contact the company to know more about their certain policies on the possible venue shut down. Their policy regarding the insurance will most likely influence your decision to postpone or push through with the given date of the wedding.
4. Draft a heartwarming and well-thought-out email to your beloved guests
As heartbreaking as it could be, it is best to inform your guests about the necessary changes as early as now. Trust, they will appreciate your decision at this time. Just make sure to acknowledge their anticipated response regarding your decision.
5. Exercise, exercise, exercise!
Home quarantine is a perfect avenue to chill, eat, and sleep the whole day. Beware though, as this may also be a time to give in to your laziness and procrastination.
