2020 was an unprecedented year (a phrase I’m sure we’re all tired of seeing online and in our inboxes). This time last year we were grocery shopping with ease, still enjoying dinner and drinks in tightly packed restaurants, and nervously traveling across the country. But as more and more things shut down, we had to face the idea that life might not be the same for a while. It’s a year later and life still isn’t the same. The wedding and events industry has been all but crippled by the pandemic, and couples are more nervous now than ever to plan the wedding of their dreams. After navigating the postponements, cancellations, and regulations all last year, I have collected a list of frequently asked questions regarding Covid-19 and wedding day plans. These questions will prove immensely helpful as a new wave of engaged couples enter the marketplace this year. I hope they help you!
Things might still feel precarious right now, especially if you want friends and family members to attend who are high risk. I will always work with you to answer any questions and act as a resource as you navigate your decisions regarding postponements. If you decide that it is best to postpone your wedding day, we will work hard to find a new date that works for all of us. Your retainer will be transferred to your new date and no additional fees will be required. If we cannot find a mutually acceptable date, my clients have the option to have their wedding photographed by one of my associates or cancel their photography reservation.
If you are planning to disregard governmental mandates in favor of hosting your wedding, I have the legal right to refuse to photograph it. I do not condone and do not wish to contribute to illegal activity. I prioritize the comfort and safety of all of my clients (and their families and friends) and do my best to uphold that standard of excellence in my business.
I’ll send along a new questionnaire to go over any planning changes so that I can create a new customized timeline for you based on your wedding day needs.
I hope these answered any of your questions as you begin wedding planning! If you liked this post, you might like one of these:
