Your wedding is affected by the Coronavirus.
That was so NOT how this was supposed to go.
You’ve spent weeks or months planning and researching, interviewing and choosing your vendors, and have spent a pretty penny on deposits, Save-the-Dates, and invites.
And after all that you don’t even know whether it’s going to happen or not.
Well, the way I see it you have three options:
- Change certain details about your wedding
- Postpone your wedding until it is safe
- Cancel your wedding altogether
By no means do I think that one decision is better than another, it wholly depends on what works for you.
That being said, this is an unprecedented time and we all have to do our part to help mitigate the situation and flatten the curve.
Ultimately, you have to decide what that means to you.
|Side note: The CDC currently recommends to postpone/cancel all events with 50 or more attendees, the White House guidelines limit gatherings to 10 people, and CA & NY require residents to stay home unless it is to grocery shop or see medical attention. Things are rapidly changing, check the most up-to-date recommendations from the CDC here.
To make things worse, not only do you have a big decision to make, but you also need to consider your guests.
They have likely been looking forward to your wedding since they received the Save-the-Date and are just as uncertain of what will happen as the rest of us.
However, WedTexts is here to help!
Here are some examples of coronavirus related wedding text messages you can send your guests.
Wedding Details Have Changed
You’ve decided to go ahead with the wedding, mostly as planned, except for a few changes to ensure your guest’s health and safety.
Events Before the Wedding
Wedding Has Been Postponed
You’ve decided to postpone your wedding until a different date because of the coronavirus. Make sure you let your guests know since they may not be able to attend on the new date. They will also be curious to know what happens to their existing hotel reservations.
Events Before the Wedding
Wedding is Canceled
You’ve made the tough choice to cancel your wedding because of the coronavirus. As hard as it is, you will need to let your guests know, too. Make sure to include information about how they can recover costs from travel arrangements and hotel reservations.
While we can’t make the decision on whether to change, postpone, or cancel your wedding any easier for you, we CAN help to make communicating with your guests easier.
