Today is the beginning of a new week, Monday March 30th 2020.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to exacerbate throughout the U.S. and the world, many couples are faced with unique challenges surrounding their wedding day. It is not our intention to pose as health professionals, but rather assist you and extend our specific knowledge as best we can to help navigate you through this hardship.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOUR WEDDING –
In an official statement taking from the CDC it states, “Officials may ask you to modify, postpone, or cancel large events for the safety and well-being of your event staff, participants, and the community. The details of your emergency operations plan should be based on the size and duration of your events, demographics of the participants, complexity of your event operations, and type of on-site services and activities your event may offer.”
OUR SUGGESTION –
Majority of wedding professionals understand that this is an unprecedented situation beyond anyone’s control. Given the circumstances many vendors are willing to accomodate their clients. Here at Kindle And Grain we are postponing dates free of charge and we are working through this WITH you!
The first step of managing your vendors is to review your contracts. Each vendor you’ve hired will have different stipulations around postponing or canceling, so it’s important to read the fine print before getting in touch. You especially want to check out the contract you have with your venue, as many will have a rescheduling clause that may help you avoid major costs due to canceling.
Do everything within your power to keep your friends and family safe!
We have been distancing ourselves throughout this process to ensure that we do our part.
LOVE CANNOT BE CANCELED –
It is important to take the positives out of every scenario. For as many headlines develop of event cancellations and postponements, stories of optimism still arise. Couples embarking on elopements, celebrating with their guests on Zoom video chats, selecting new dates.
It is important to note that we are all in this together. Each of us are facing hardships. It’s a brief moment for us all to think differently and to appreciate differently.
LET THE NEW BEGIN.
