Lance and Ayessa have been planning their June wedding for almost a year now. Almost everything is set but with her groom working in the US, Ayessa fears that the most important wedding detail might not make it on time.
With the rapid development of Covid-19 in our country, soon-to-wed couples are starting to feel anxious on what to do about their big day. Wedding planning can already be stressful enough on a normal day, but this outbreak is making it twice as challenging. What should you do?
With all the news updates about the rapid spread of the virus all over the world, it’s easier to panic than to look at things with clear eyes. It’s very easy to feel that this situation you’re in is shoving you against the wall with no other option but to back down. Before you make any decisions, lay down all your cards in front of you and ask yourself the following questions:
Angela is scheduled to get married in Manila this month so she has been monitoring the news everyday to help her decide about what to do next.
We talked to a Manila-based wedding planner to get some insights on what changes couples can make during their wedding day.
Taking extra steps to make your guests feel safe will go a long way. The risk they are taking to join you on your special day is no small feat. For sure, your concern will be appreciated.
What are the cards you’re dealt with now and is there a possible workaround? For example, if you’re planning to have a destination wedding where the majority of suppliers and guests are coming from all over the world, you might want to rethink your plans for now. If you’ll have your wedding in Manila, what are the limitations? These are just some questions to help you assess your current situation.
While couples will naturally do everything in their power to push through with their wedding plans, some factors just don’t have a workaround. And this is what soon-to-weds have to accept. Rhona, wedding planner, shared with us one cancellation they recently had.
David, together with his fiance, was supposed to have their wedding in Italy this May. But because of the outbreak, they decided to cancel it for a later date.
If there’s one good thing we can squeeze out from this whole crisis, it’s us being brought back to what’s important. If at the end of the day you realize that the most important thing for you it to get married even if no guests showed up, then go ahead. Consider trimming down your guest list just so all your paper work and documents won’t expire.
