PODCAST: COVID Wedding Cancellations and The Wedding Awakening
COVID-19 has disrupted thousands of weddings around the world and the weight of the uncertainty is stripping the joy out of the process of planning for this significant life event.
So, what now?
Should you cancel or reschedule your wedding, and when? Will you get your deposits back? Will your international and elderly guests be able to attend? How can you move forward with your wedding plans when so much is unknown?
In this episode of the podcast, I’m reflecting on the lessons we can all take from the current Coronavirus situation and how we can apply these to the wedding experiences we design.
I help you reflect on your unique situation and unpack what’s most important to you right now, cover the most common logistical questions, and, give you a plan for moving forward.
Your wedding may not end up looking like the one you had planned, but if there’s ever been a time to rethink the way we approach weddings — this is it.

VIDEO: 5 Steps for Taking Control of Your Wedding Plans Amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic
Wedding date fast approaching?
I’ve got for 5 steps to help you take control of your plans amongst Coronavirus uncertainty.
1. Find out where you stand
With your vendors so you know how much notice you need to give to postpone or cancel.
2. Decide what’s most important to you
Saying your vows and being married, having all of your guests join you, or having the party just as you planned it?
- If the party is your #1 and you’re unable to reschedule everything as planned, what are your non-negotiables for the new date?
- If guests are you #1, remember that everyone’s comfort levels are different and they may not be willing to travel/attend in the near future
3. Make a plan B and plan C
Then decide what date you’ll initiate them based on your priorities and vendor cancellation policies (we can only take this day by day for now, no need to be canceling your August weddings just yet!)
4. Tell your guests
Let them know their health and well-being is your #1 priority and you won’t be offended whatever decision they make
5. Put boundaries in place
So you don’t have to keep fielding questions/stressing/feeling sad about this!
Let’s not forget that the health and wellness of ALL of us is the number one priority right now.
