Because you never really know what might happen, I always say it — brides should look into insurance to protect their event and investment as part of their planning process. And now that we are all being challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic emergency, these words have even more meaning. Though many events everywhere have been canceled or postponed, there are still some things you can keep doing right now:
• Continue your visualizing and planning using Pinterest! Work on your mood boards to get clear on what your ideal wedding celebration looks like, in full color.
• Ask your airlines and wedding vendors for date flexibility. For example, one of our clients had a wedding booked for April 18. But because their guests were coming from all over the world with border closings, including The Bahamas, they had to change their dates. With the travel restrictions, we were able to re-book the dates with all of the local businesses — and shift their date to 2021.
• Take a deep breath and know that no matter what, things will eventually work out for the best. Try to stay positive and adaptable, and know that your event will still be possible once we can all breathe a good sigh of relief again.
Remember why you wanted a destination wedding in the first place? It’s all part of your great adventure. Keep your passion and excitement for it alive during this challenging time. Continue to dream, and know that the world will eventually return to normal. Now more than ever, you probably want to escape even more to a place that is secluded and quiet and beautiful — and it will be here, waiting for you.
Keep the faith,
