We are currently in the midst of unprecedented and uncertain times, the wedding industry has been greatly affected. If you were due to marry in 2020, the chances of that happening is now slim to none. The team here at Tee & Ing Bridal have compiled a list of tips for planning your wedding during COVID-19.
During times of uncertainty, it is best to stay on top of all your affairs regarding your wedding. Keep in touch with all your booked services, communication is key during this time. If you move your wedding date to 2021, keep in mind you will be competing with every couple that planned to get married in 2021 prior to this pandemic. Act now!
If you’ve already booked your venue, photographer, musicians, caterer, event stylist and the like, should your wedding not proceed in 2020, these services are highly compassionate and empathetic during these times.
Reach out to them and re-book a new date as many services are offering to hold your deposit/funds for up to 12 months or more from your original booking date.
*Important: Before locking in your new date, remember to check with all your services that they are also available on that day!
The one good thing that has eventuated from this situation is that you get more time to save money towards your wedding. This could be the difference between the quality of your services or perhaps you could extend your honeymoon or fly somewhere entirely different than originally planned with the extra funds.
