With everything going on I don’t know if we should postpone. I worry most about the photographer, dj, officiant canceling at this point. Our final count is due in like 2 weeks with a little less then half of our rsvps still not returned. I’m at a stand still 😭😭
I know with all the cancellations and bans of large gatherings across the country, it's hard not to panic. I work in the wedding industry and I'm panicking just a little! Haha But, since your wedding is still a good 5 weeks away, I wouldn't worry too much just yet. Things may be so different by then. Also, if you're worried about your vendors, definitely reach out to them! I know that all of them most likely do not want to cancel and will do everything they can to be at your wedding.
I am choosing to move forward no matter what. If my dj cancels, we will use an iphone and playlist. If that photographer cancels, we will have a friend or family member take pictures. If the officiant cancels, we will get a friend ordained. The only thing that is stopping this wedding is a state or federal mandate or my venue cancelling. I recognize many guest may choose not to come and I completely understand that.
If the whole thing gets cancelled, I plan on still marring my FH on that day and then figuring out how to celebrate once this is over.
We will make the best of it!! My wedding is 04/09 and I am panicked too but it is what it is at this point and I am not rescheduling. We will make the most of what we've got and the story will live on for centuries!!
I would just reach out to your vendors, and tell them you just want to touch base, and confirm that they are all still going to be there for your wedding. Better to know now if they are thinking of cancelling than to find out the week before. Then at least you have a little time to go to Plan B.
