It's safe to say the Coronavirus has changed everyday life in a blink of an eye. With restrictions in place, set by the State of Colorado, most milestone events are being rescheduled or cancelled. From school banquets to birthday parties, weddings to receptions and more, we're all having to make changes to help keep everyone safe.
If you had to reschedule your wedding day due to the coronavirus, we are truly sorry if the situation has caused you undue stress and anxiety. We understand how exciting wedding days are and we want to encourage you to stay positive and provide you with some tips for rescheduling your wedding day.
It's Going To Be Okay!
We acknowledge the disappointment the coronavirus has caused and we're sorry you're going through it. You've probably experienced a lot of stress but just know that it's all going to be okay. At this point, the very best thing you can do for yourself is to stay positive. In the end, you will still have a beautiful wedding celebration and will marry the love of your life.
Set A New Date and Let Your Guests Know As Soon As PossibleNow that you've accepted the wedding must be postponed, it's time to be proactive and set a new date. First, of course, is to reach out to your venue to determine availability later in 2020 or even 2021. As all kinds of events shift and take up dates, don't rule out off days such as Fridays and Sundays. Even weekdays! We've hosted plenty of weddings and receptions throughout the week and everything always turns out beautiful. The alternate days will also work out better for your vendors as their availability changes.
Once you receive new date options from your venue, reach out to all of your vendors such as the photographer and florist. For the most part, your vendors are going to do everything in their power to accommodate your rescheduled date.
Armed with your new date, make sure to contact your guest as soon as possible. As everyone's work and school schedules shift during the coronavirus situation, your guests will need all the advanced notice they can get. One bright side, is out of town guests might be able to get discounted travel arrangements.
Use the Extra Time To Fine TuneUse this extra time to your advantage. Are there DIY projects you were frantically working on for your wedding? Maybe you were paying for the wedding and reception yourself and now have more time to save up. Think of this as an extension of your wedding planning. You might even come up with some more ideas on how to make your wedding day even more special.
You're Still Getting MarriedMost importantly, at the end of this crazy situation, just know you still get to marry the love of your life. Wedding days come and go, but the real reason you're doing all of this is to be with your one and only. Just imagine the stories you will be able to tell your kids and grand kids someday!
