What to Do About Your Wedding During This Coronavirus Pandemic Time

As of 19th of March 2020, they were 154 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Tennessee. This makes it clear that this is not an illness to play with an as a country we must take proactive steps to help curb the spread of this virus. This is why as of the 15th of March 2020, the CDC advised that all weddings be postponed for about 8 weeks in the US. So, should you postpone your upcoming wedding? Well, it depends on the outcome of things and your wedding date.  If your wedding falls after these 8 weeks and you’re wondering how you’ll proceed, the following tips from us can help.



  • Should I Invite People from Still Affected Areas?

If after 8 weeks your area is no longer affected and you can hold your wedding, inviting people from still affected areas would not be advisable. This might be an instance where you might then need to postpone your wedding. If your parent, grandparent or other important guest lives in one of those areas and you feel your wedding can’t hold without them, then you can look into postponing.

  • What If My Area Is Still Affected; Should I Cancel?

It depends on what the CDC is saying by then. You might have to postpone if the area where you want to do your wedding is still affected.

  • How Do We Protect Our Guests from the COVID-19?

The safety measure that has been suggested for protection should work just fine where your guests are concerned. A wide space, for example, is better than a closely packed one and ventilation and light will be essential. You should also set seats a few centimeters apart and opt for plated food instead of a buffet-style meal. Hand sanitizer stations should also be present and your vendors and venue should make sure that staff is screened before they cater to your event.

  • Should We Buy Wedding Insurance?

Yes, you absolutely should. It will provide you peace of mind in case your future wedding plans are still affected by Coronavirus. You should also check with your vendors to see how their insurance covers coronavirus. Make sure that you discuss with an insurance agent to figure out a plan that works best for you.
