COVID-19 AND YOUR WEDDING
There’s a lot to think about when planning your big day - no matter where your wedding date falls on the calendar. But if it happens to be in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, you might be wondering what you should do—if anything—to prepare and plan for the potential that your wedding may be affected.
2021-2022 COUPLES - PLANNING YOUR WEDDING DURING THIS UNCERTAIN TIME
I have a fantastic network of Vendors and nearly a decade of experience navigating contracts for my couples. I would suggest you move forward with your plans for a wedding next year but under the understanding that there is the potential of needing to reschedule if a vaccine or cure has not been made widely available. With that being said I can help you be sure all of your contracts include verbiage to be able to change the date without any fees and of course I would not charge you anything additional if this is a bridge we need to cross as 2021 unfolds. You should be able to plan with the peace of mind that you have a sound back up plan in place so you can enjoy the experience of planning!
2020 COUPLES - POSTPONEMENTS AND CREATIVE THINKING
After investing your complete emotional and financial being into this day, you may now be facing the difficult decision to postpone your wedding. You don't want to cancel, lose all of those deposits and forfeit the wedding of your dreams but there are other options, ones you may not be considering.
JUST BECAUSE YOUR WEDDING IS POSTPONED DOESN'T NECESSARILY MEAN YOUR MARRIAGE NEEDS TO FOLLOW SUIT.
Many are choosing to plan a small, intimate celebration in 2020, then have their big party next year. There are lots of options and levels of celebration. We can help you navigate what feels best and how to go about planning it!
We have special packages now for these "Mini-Weddings" if you are seeking assistance on this level.

The absolute BEST wedding planner
Hiring Cathy was the best decision we made with regards to our wedding planning process, hands down. It is no exaggeration to say that our wedding simply would not have come to fruition had it not been for her, her hard work, dedication, meticulousness, patience, intuition, vast knowledge of just about everything, and of course, her big heart.
Prior to Cathy, our wedding planning process had endured some bumps and misfortunes that left us wondering how we were ever going to make our big day come to life. In came Cathy to single-handedly save the day. From day one she was an absolute pleasure to work with. No stone was left unturned with Cathy -- from her creative ideas to her practical suggestions, she had all bases thoroughly covered. Her attention to detail is truly one-of-a-kind, as we could always expect her to come to each planning call with extreme preparedness and the genuine desire to make our wedding day as special and memorable as possible for us.
After having to cancel at our planned venue due to COVID, she helped us put together a beautiful backyard wedding of our dreams in just three mere months, which obviously was no easy feat. Whenever any issues arose, Cathy went far, FAR above and beyond to resolve them and put our minds at ease.
If I am being honest, before Cathy, I was feeling overwhelmed, depleted, and defeated about the whole wedding and was loathing the entire planning process because it was excruciatingly stressful. With Cathy's support, help and guidance I was able to actually enjoy the very special time that is wedding planning.
Ultimately, our wedding was absolutely perfect -- everything ran smoothly and seamlessly -- and we have Cathy to thank for that. We are eternally grateful for her and HIGHLY recommend her.Sent on 02/03/2021

Hire Cathy, best decision ever!
We hired Cathy Feb 2020 - right before the covid pandemic. Having no idea it was coming, it obviously it made for a stressful year+ of planning (our wedding was May 1 2021). We seriously couldn't have done our wedding without her, and it probably wouldn't have happened without her. Cathy became part therapist (due to the stress/mini meltdowns of the covid rules and changes, us moving out of NYC throughout the wedding process, starting a new job, buying a new house, and other life craziness), part friend (we will def be in touch post wedding, she became someone we both (husband and I) confided in and she really got to know us throughout the whole year+ process), to full executer and planner. She works so hard at her job, and goes above and beyond, and is one of the most detail oriented people I've ever met. We did the full package with Cathy, so we got her from the very beginning of her helping find a venue that met the requirements we were looking for (she did all the research and then presented us with options and we toured together until we found the right one) to her helping us find the right vendors (based on our inspiration board/vision board that we worked together on) to her making sure all the covid rules were followed, all the budget negotiations, budget control, paper work, vendor communication, to making sure the day went without a hitch - so basically everything from A to Z. Our wedding had some additional moving parts (a gospel choir, a whole casino night instead of a traditional dinner, brunches for guests, and other things) and the whole weekend turned out more beautiful and amazing than I ever thought it could. The best part was I got to relax and just enjoy our weekend. In addition, she even helped with our honeymoon (as far as helping read the fine print in the paperwork, helping us schedule our required covid tests for it), etc. I could go on and on on everything Cathy did for us during the year+ we worked together. We are honestly going to miss our weekly calls with her. If you are in need of a planner, book Cathy and her team - you won't regret it! She was totally worth it and then some!Sent on 05/04/2021
Cathy's Elegant Events's reply:Thank you soo much Alisha (and Greg!). I really look forward to hearing how the honeymoon goes and coming to visit you sometime soon!
