Boy, oh boy, what a rough few weeks it’s been, huh? Emotions are running high for everyone- from couples getting married this season having to postpone or cancel weddings at the last minute and couples getting married within the next few months who are unsure of what actions to take (if any), to vendors juggling rescheduled dates while at the same time trying to keep their business financially afloat… well, it’s been a real battle.
It’s Day #10 of Social Distancing for me and I feel like I’m only just wrapping my head around what’s going on, how it affects my current and future weddings, and how I’d best like to proceed with my business procedures in a way that best helps my couples. So here’s what I’d love to share with you:
But it’s still ok to be sad, disappointed, anxious…all those things.
In the meantime, if you don’t have an amazing wedding planner that you can reach out to to discuss next steps (like Elite Wedding Planning, Canvas Weddings, or Emily Baldwin Events, to name a few), here are a few thoughts I’ve compiled for you to consider:
It’s not necessarily time yet to contact your venue- a lot can change within the coming weeks. However, it IS a good time to start considering what you’re willing to do. Here are a few questions you may want to consider:
Getting an idea now of what you’d like to do will really help get things in motion if and when you need to.
Remember that a lot of weddings this year may be rescheduling for 2021 which means….dates are going to get slim real quick. If you’re in a position to keep moving forward with planning financially, don’t hesitate to reach out! I know this can be tricky when you can’t tour venues right now and make your date official, but if you have a day and venue in mind already, I’d be more than happy to take a smaller retainer for the date until you can make things official. 🙂
I’m here to talk things out with you and support you, whenever you want. Video chat, text, e-mail- I’ll reply in a jiff.
In the meantime, as I mentioned, it’s totally ok to grieve and be sad. This situation is unprecedented and we are all doing our best trying to process it and move forward with some kind of a plan, so a little bit of patience and grace with vendors and clients goes a long way.
