For newly engaged couples starting to plan a 2021 wedding, we have 5 helpful tips to keep in mind:

  1. Get wedding insurance

I have always told our clients the importance of this, but more than ever this rings true.  Wedding insurance has many varying levels of coverage, but a big one is the ability to have it cover postponements and vendor deposits. I highly recommend reaching out to your car insurance company first, but if they do not offer wedding insurance, we recommend WedSafe.com. (Please note, during the pandemic you will not be able to sign up for a new insurance policy, but once CDC guidelines are updated you can review policies.)

  1. Ask your venue the important questions

In your initial review of prospective venues, ask the important questions – don’t be shy! It is important to ask and understand: What do you do if we need to postpone due to a pandemic? Are any fees incurred if we need to get married at a later date in 2021, or our event needs to be postponed to 2022? What should we keep in mind if we decide to go with your venue? You can also ask how they handled postponing clients in 2020.

  1. Ask your vendors and hotel the important questions, too

This is also a time to not be shy with your vendors and hotel in understanding their postponement policies. Make sure you understand next steps if your contracted vendor is not available on a postponed date. For example, do they have a team member who can step in for them? Or if not, what are the next steps? 

  1. Create a wedding website

Having a wedding website is KEY to being able to quickly provide guests with updated info.  When you send out your save the dates, be sure to provide a link to your wedding website so your guests can stay up to date on hotel room blocks, weekend events and any changes (pandemic or other) that could shift plans.

  1. Hire a planner

Having a trusted wedding expert by your side throughout planning is a must! When the tough questions come up or a Plan B is needed, we are right there to walk you through it and come up with ideas to help calm your nerves or postpone your wedding day.

If you have more questions about working with a planner, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Xoxo,
