How to Plan Your Wedding During COVID-19

How to plan your wedding during COVID-19

New Planners

Look for vendors w/ larger teams

With so many unknowns in place, it is important to consider vendors who have a larger team that will come through if you do need to reschedule your wedding. For example, if you book a DJ who is a single, part time DJ, he or she may not be available if you do (unfortunately) need to reschedule. Our team of DJs consists of 4 highly trained professionals that will provide consistent entertainment and performance across the board.

When to Book in 2021

When considering a 2021 date, choose a date that is later than July 2021. With all the unknowns of when a vaccine will be released, you want to make sure you are planning a date that will happen the first time. Our team has seen so many couples have to reschedule their dates to 2021 and the tears that have come with it. You also want to book your date ASAP. Dates are filling up quicker than ever for 2021!

How to make your change less stressful...

First off, if you need to change your date from 2020 to 2021, we are deeply sorry for what you are going through. We want to help make this transition less stressful for you during this pandemic. Below are a few ideas on what you can do to create synergy among your vendors.

Easy planning for your postponed wedding

1. Create a Google Doc spreadsheet

This is the best way to connect your vendor’s schedules in one place.

  • On the X axis you should put all the dates your venue has availability. 
  • On the Y axis put the vendors you have booked for your current date. 
  • Send a mass email to all vendors with a link to the doc and ask them to put a “Yes” or “No” depending on availability. This is going to make choosing your new date much easier than the back and forth emails.  

2. Choose your new date quickly!

Think about it, there are now almost 2 times the amount of couples looking at 2021 dates. You have the couples who already were planning a 2021 wedding and now you have 2020 couples looking at those same dates. 

We know how much this hurts for our clients but we encourage you to consider 2021 Friday dates over 2021 Saturday dates as this is how us wedding vendors make a living. We only get 52 Saturdays in a year to make a premium rate and with the 2020 dates lost, we are losing thousands of dollars every time we book a 2021 Saturday for a 2020 postponement. 

Should I cancel or postpone my wedding?

3. Postpone > Cancel

Please, don’t cancel. You have waited your whole life for this day to happen. You have planned for hours on end making sure your centerpieces are perfect for your guests to marvel at. By canceling, this makes matters worse. 

We know this is terrible and emotionally exhausting but you are so close! You can still have your dream wedding and it will be just as you imagined. You may just need to wait it out a bit. The goal is to get married and celebrate with friends and family. Don’t throw that away!
