Tips on getting married amid the COVID-19 pandemic – from the view of a wedding photographer. I absolutely understand these tips may not be helpful for every person and every situation, however they are helping my LBP couples and hopefully can help you too!
Are you considering rescheduling your full wedding day?
1 – Reach out to each and every vendor you are working with. Chances are, they are all handling the situation a bit differently. Reread your contract, especially the rescheduling clause. Check your local (or state) restrictions and possible shelter-in-place orders.
2 – Check with your venue(s) to see if they have any dates open for rescheduling. If they do, check to see if your key vendors are available. (Key vendors may be the ones you absolutely want to work with, even if that means working around their schedule, or vendors that can only take one event per day.) Once you have a possible back-up date selected, ask your vendors to put a courtesy hold on it for two weeks until you make your decision.
3 – Consider a Friday or Sunday wedding. Both days tend to have a lot more flexibility for everyone.
4 – Be kind, remember this is gravely impacting small businesses and it is a new situation for everyone to navigate.
