Tips on Rebooking a Wedding in Michigan
I have some friends in Michigan and Chicago that had to cancel their wedding because of the Pandemic. A few actually just decided to skip the big wedding and do it with just a few family and friends. One couple I know just flew to Vegas to get hitched.
Check this out, according to fox47news.com many excited couples that have been waiting for their big day are having to endure a rebooking nightmare, all because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Patrick Fogle and Kate Douglas of Howell were originally set to tie the knot on Aug. 22, 2020, but they canceled their wedding because of COVID-19. We had to switch to a Friday instead of a Saturday because all the Saturdays were already booked by the time we knew, Kate said. We’re actually on our third wedding day.
So Kate and Patrick then decided on a new wedding date, July 30, 2021. Because of the crazy indoor and outdoor capacity limits, they had to keep altering their wedding guest list. This has to be very stressful for them, and any couple going through the same thing. There is light at the end of the tunnel though for them, the new invitations will be arriving by next week.
Some photographers, DJs and many other wedding professionals have seen business drop as much as 80 percent in the last year or so. Some wedding services do not have a rescheduling fee the first time, because nobody was planning for a pandemic, but some will after that so be aware. It is also recommended that couples pick a wedding day other than a Saturday. Plus it will save you money.
Also, keep track of the coronavirus rules and restrictions where you're planning to get married. Public health guidance can vary from state to state and even county to county.
Here's a link to the current guidelines in Michigan.
