Couples around the world are postponing their weddings due to the Coronavirus. In the grand scheme of things, it is of course, prudent to keep loved ones safe and not risk putting them in any danger but at the same time it is heartbreaking for couples to have spent a significant amount of time, energy and money only to have to hit ‘pause’ on their big day, we hear you. Travel bans, quarantines, border closing, have all but shelved wedding plans for the first half of 2020 and the outlook for the rest of the year is uncertain and in a ‘holding pattern’ so to speak. Having an experienced planner on board to help navigate changes as they come up definitely makes life a bit easier and we are dedicated to helping our brides- and grooms-to-be in the coming months to figure this out.
We advise our couples marrying in May and June to pause or postpone their weddings to later in the year, especially with the current travel restrictions imposed in Hong Kong and many other Southeast Asian countries. For those getting married later in the year, one of our grooms-to-be said, he will take a wait and see approach, preferring to “Keep calm and Marry on” and we advise the same.
This too shall pass. As Rebecca Grinnal, Founder of Engage Summit, said recently “People are not going to not get married. The weddings may look different. They may be at a different time. They may be in a different location. They may be a different size or scale. But they’re not going to not get married.”
If any brides or grooms have any questions or concerns, do reach out and we will try our best to help you during this difficult time!
Hang in there. We are here for you.
