Covid-19 and your wedding day | Charleston Wedding Photography


Has the coronavirus made you wonder if you should reschedule your wedding? Make sure to read this!

Dear Bride…

First of all, I am so so sorry that you are having to deal with this craziness so close to your wedding day. I can’t even imagine what must be going on through your mind. You’ve been planning on this day since you were a little girl, and all of a sudden, it’s like the rug got ripped from underneath you. Please know, that if you need anyone to talk to, I am more than willing to help you in any way that I possibly can. 

With that said, just remember that there options for your wedding day instead of canceling it. Here are some of the options…

1. Ride the wave

Especially if you have a May or June wedding, one of your first best options is just riding the wave. Here’s the thing, we don’t know when this virus is going to be done and over with by April. It could be, and it also couldn’t be, there really isn’t a definitive answer. But what I do know, is that there is always a possibility. So you always have the option to ride the wave and see what you should do by the end of April.

2. Reschedule

The next best option, just to make sure the virus is done and over with, is by rescheduling your wedding. The good thing is, is that all of your wedding vendors should be able to work with you to make sure that they will be available for your next wedding day. If not, they might be able to refund the money you have already spent with them. Just to make sure, refer back to the contracts you signed with your wedding vendors. 

3. Elope and/or reschedule 

Eloping is a fun experience because you finally get to just marry the person you absolutely adore to pieces! You can elope with a small group of people by your side witnessing your marriage, or even just your photographer, and call it a day. 

Want to know what’s better than just eloping? Eloping AND rescheduling your wedding!

You might be wondering, wait, how would that even be a thing. Let me explain!

You have the option to elope on your wedding day, and still reschedule your wedding so you can walk down the aisle. Not only is it just as special with this approach, but you totally get 2 wedding anniversaries!

Success story who did this? My very own brother and his wife!

My brother eloped with my sister in law in March. Then, they end up planning their wedding for the end of August that year so that they would be able to celebrate their marriage with family and friends! 16 years later, they don’t regret one bit that they have 2 wedding anniversaries!

Just remember this…

Whether you ride out the wave or reschedule, there is no “wrong way” whatever decision that you decide to make. Pandemics like this are not normal to happen, let alone during the wedding season.

If you need any help or additional resources, don’t hesitate to reach out to any of your vendors and they will be glad to work with you!
