“Did a Mexican beer really halt my wedding?”

This is probably the question on every Bride’s mind at 3:00 A.M. Ok maybe not 3:00 A.M. because that’s just me writing at this time. Not that I was planning on drinking Corona during my Bride and Groom’s big night, but this widespread pandemic has affected many Brides and Grooms and I feel for them.

They have spent hours and hours on the phone with their florists on what type of flowers to get, they probably spent more time with their coordinator during this time than their fiancé, and they have probably changed their dresses 4x in that same hour they were doing all this planning! You get the picture: if Wonder Woman was real, the Bride is that when planning for a wedding.

Instead,

now they have to worry if they should hug any of their friends and hope they have toilet paper by the end of the week. Yikes!

While this may be stressful for any Bride, here are 5 things they should consider before canceling or even going through with their wedding!

5 things every Bride should know before canceling or going through with their wedding!

1. Memories are more important than money

I just got off the phone with a client and he has such a positive mindset towards his fiancé. A great start to any marriage! She’s over it already and wants to just get married in court. He has been her rock and has kept reminding her, “Babe, we’ve been through it all already.” The best thing I heard him say was, “Let’s just postpone this wedding because if we cancel on all our vendors and get some of our money, what are we going to tell our kids? That we didn’t want to have a wedding because of Corona?” I laughed because he said that he didn’t want to lose to that same Mexican Beer.

2. Breathe before making a big decision

Before a bride walks down the aisle with Dad, one of the many things she’ll hear him say is, “Breathe, honey.” It’s what we do in stressful situations when we want to clear our minds, yet many of us don’t work that “muscle” enough. Many of us go throughout our life without even breathing. Like really breathing! How are we even still alive? Lol. Before making a big decision that you might regret, take this time to stop right now and breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds, pause for 2, then breathe out through your mouth for 6 seconds. Do it 3x for about 10 minutes, then go make that big decision!

3. Rescheduling is better than canceling

Canceling completely will lead to you losing your deposit and part of your remaining balance if work has been done already. Most professional vendors have this as part of their contract, because they blocked out multiple inquiries just to be a part of something special: your big day! One of the biggest tips I’ve seen most people in the wedding industry recommending is to reschedule to a weekday, because you’re more likely to get all your vendors in one place.Who knows, you could probably also get a discount and/or that additional “fireworks special” you’ve always dreamed of. Everyone loves an old fashion win-win!

4. Contact your vendors

The wedding industry around the world has been hit real hard and it’s sad to see how much heart these people pour into their companies only for it to come crashing down on them. Some of them have been in the industry longer than I was born (little dig to some of my friends in the business), and they are making tough decisions like what to cancel because not only do they have their normal bills to pay, they have mouths to feed, and they also have business expenses to pay on top of that. The worst part? That business insurance they paid money to for years is telling them that they probably can’t get covered #bigmouthemoji. If they haven’t reached out to you by now or vice versa, contact them to get the ball rolling.

5. Social distancing is real

Can you believe that there are still weddings happening? In the land of aloha, while it is recommended to not have a gathering of 10 people or more, weddings and events are still going down as we speak. I get it, “Eddie would go,” but here’s the thing, “Eddie might come back with Corona.” I’m going to take it further. “I’m not worried about Eddie. I’m worried about Eddie’s mom and dad.” When going through with that big decision, go back to #2 and breathe for 10 minutes before making that big decision.
