As the world battles COVID-19, there have never been such uncertain times for ages. You must have been dreaming and planning for your fairytale wedding for months. But due to recent developments over the WHO declaring COVID-19 as a pandemic, the plans are thrown into a great unknown flux.
With the situation growing critical with each passing day, here are some important things which we believe, that you should know. Be positive. You can still make your dreamy wedding come true happen but with some minor adjustments.
Don’t Cancel, Just Postpone
The upcoming few months would witness some different kinds of weddings. Such weddings would perhaps are not be going to tick every requisite of your list but surely would focus on tying the holy knot in a grand way. As of now, all non-essential business venues are closed till April 13th.
But the good news is that you still have a 100 person gathering limit for your indoor function and 500 for outdoor functions. The groups should follow a 4sqm per person rule. Proper hygiene measures have to be adopted.
Think of some social distancing options such as providing guests sanitizers, avoiding post-nuptial congratulatory hugs, etc. Practicing social distancing is vital and must in such grave times of the COVID-19 crisis.
But, the best thing to do is to postpone your dreamy wedding for a few months. Or, get married in an intimate ceremony with just your family members. Later, throw a lavish reception in a Vineyard restaurant after a couple of months when things return to normal.
Plan a Wedding on a Weekday
Work with your venue managers and vendors for a new date. It may happen that you may not get your desired wedding dates in the next wedding season due to pre-bookings in the peak season. The venue managers have to shift your wedding date rather than canceling it.
For a new date, you can consider a weekday wedding as well. Thursday weddings would be a new trend to witness in the upcoming wedding season. This will help the vendors and venues to not lose your bookings altogether.
Be it your photographer, florist, event planner, DJ, venues, etc.; your small adjustment on dates can help your vendors earn a living.
Right now, all international flights have been canceled and international borders have been sealed till the lockdown and quarantine period. Your much-awaited honeymoon to Italy cannot be materialized now.
Rather than crossing borders, plan your honeymoon in beautiful Australia itself. Experience the mesmerizing adventure of Queensland to underwater treasure at the Great Barrier Reef. Wait till the things turn normal and get your tickets booked for your honeymoon.
Your little bit can help these vendors and venues to continue delivering their best. After all, these are the ones who make your D-day special and memorable. So, postpone your dreamy wedding to the next date rather than canceling it.
