If you are a fall 2020 bride, without a doubt you have asked yourself – and asked others if you are so brave – “Should we still get married this fall?”
Many of you awesome couples already made this hard decision: some of you got married anyway, some of you postponed and are waiting until 2021/2022, some of you eloped and are planning a bigger celebration later, and some of you continue to ask this question.
For those in the latter group, tune into this post for sure, especially as we run the race that is 2020 and approach the finish line.
Here at A Wedding Loft, we are beyond blessed to have well-seasoned planners as members who continue to navigate COVID reschedules daily with their couples. So, we asked that question to them
“Should couples get married this year?”
It was a unanimous yes, but with a ‘but’.
“You shouldn’t postpone your love, but you should postpone your bigger celebration,” says Mimi of Mimi Ebichi Events. As a former lawyer and former health care administrator – now wedding planner – Mimi continues to watch the data and medical studies as they come in.
“This is a new virus, we don’t know much about it and the lasting implications. My advice for 2020 couples would be to keep your wedding small and traceable.”
When we asked Millen of Millen Occasions, she echoed what Mimi said, “Yes! They should, absolutely [get married].”
Millen goes on to say that “couples shouldn’t wait, they should get married now, but maybe postpone their reception until next year.”
Both agreed that love can’t wait but the safety of you and your guests should be factored in with your final decision.
So, what should you do if you are thinking about postponing?
With more and more couples making last-minute decisions to switch, and new 2021 brides are beginning to book their wedding vendors, timely reschedules are imperative to keep all your same wedding vendors.
Another amazing feature of A Wedding Loft is it is a space that you can say “I do” in! We have affordable micro-wedding packages available and like your other wedding vendors, we are booking up fast! Be sure to inquire about our unbeatable offerings.
