The Coronavirus pandemic is the world’s number one topic right now. There is uncertainty, fear, and a lot of misinformation. Planning a wedding on regular times can be stressful. Right now, we are dealing with unprecedented events which add high levels of anxiety to any couple. Of course, us planners feel the pain as well. However, despite all, I am hopeful this situation will be under control soon.
I want to take this moment and send, from my home to yours, positive and health vibes, confident that, this too, shall pass!
So, what to do if my wedding is weeks away in Puerto Rico? To help you prepare and give you peace of mind, I want to share five tips to help you keep your sanity during these times.
- I’m sure he/she already did but, ensure to get in contact with your planner immediately to discuss your options. Keep in mind your planner is your main point of contact and connection to all the wedding details and vendors so, let’s open the communication and keep the conversations going with your wedding team.
- Follow official and trustworthy information! Social media is a great tool for keeping us on the loop of things, but it can also provide tons of misinformation. Tune into your local government authorities, the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control (CDC).
- If needed, consider postponing your big day. As per March 15, 2020, the CDC has officially recommended the postponement of weddings in the United States for eight weeks, or until mid-May. Review all your vendor contracts and talk to your planner about the possibility of future alternate dates. Keep in mind, weekdays are usually best in terms of availability for the providers.
- Keep your guests informed about any decisions made, especially if you are set on postponing the wedding and guests need to travel.
- Focus on your safety and keep calm. Every situation has a solution so, don’t add stress to your life because of the wedding. Remember you have an awesome planner and team of professionals that got your back. Don’t hurry into decisions, always consult first with your partner and planner.
Remember, your wedding will be fabulous on whatever date it finally happens. We got you!
Stay safe and happy planning!
