Firstly I just wanted to say I AM SO SORRY you are having to plan a wedding through covid. I know how stressful this is.
So I am from Australia, but I can’t find a forum and I REALLY need some advice from people who are going through the same thing as us.
This is our third attempt at getting married because of COVID, we are fed up and we want our wedding to go ahead.
WE just don’t know what to do. 40% of our guests live locally, so that’s not a problem. 30% live in another state, and 30% live in another state again. We are only shutting borders to states with an outbreak, so if one state can’t come, the other state can. Our biggest concern is my partners parents live interstate, so if covid hits that state, and we reschedule the other state has already booked their flights and accommodation. I don’t think it’s fair. But nothing is fair for us, or anyone involved right now.
Is it fair if we ask my partners parents to book 14 days before the wedding, and be prepared to isolate, at our cost not theirs.
2. Should we reschedule the wedding if his parents choose not to isolate and make everyone else change their flights and accommodation AGAIN if an outbreak hits?
Ideally, we would love for our wedding to go ahead no matter what, and throw a party for the state/s that can’t attend if that happens.
Please no mean answers L We haven’t made any decisions, this is why we are asking for help.
