The recent pandemic has dramatically affected daily life around the world.
Many bride-to-be, after long months of planning, have come to a halt having been affected by the strict guidelines for large events implemented around the world. What should they do now during this trying time?
Luna Bianca looks into some possibilities towards having them to continue with their what could be, the happiest day of their life.
COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically affected daily life around the world, and there’s no clear answers to it. The Singapore government had announced a few measures to counter and to contain the spreading of the virus itself. Now, couples engaged to be married in the coming months are faced with heart-wrenching decisions regarding whether it’s best to postpone, cancel, continue or make an adjustment plan for the big day. Wondering what they should do with their wedding venues, photographers, videographers, wedding gowns and the essentials for the wedding itself.
By opting cancellation of packages, ala carte services or even the venues itself, you would have to go through a series of forfeiting all the deposits given to the vendors according to the contract signed. However, according to The Straits Times report “Couples who have booked wedding venues such as hotels but have had their wedding plans disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic would not have to forfeit their deposits, under laws to be proposed next week”.
As of current, the law will probably only apply to weddings venues but not to the others.
Opting for postponement, you would get to plan out a new schedule for your wedding day. We encourage the couple to remain calm and plan out a new schedule with vendors from gown rental, wedding venues to photographer and videographer, if they're a one stop services boutique it will be more convenient. We understand this is an emotional time for every one of us, couples, guests and wedding professionals. We are here for all of you. If you’re an engaged couple who is thinking through your alternative plan for a later date, it’s ok to be disappointed, stressed and upset. Reach out to vendors for postponement and schedule a new plan.
We are all in this together
Looking out for each other whether it be vendors or couples. Remembering this season will pass and your beautiful wedding will take place, and these vendors will be there for you and make it perfect.
Lastly, as quoted by our Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Friday (Apr 10), before the sun comes out and shines on us again, lets stay safe, stay healthy & stay home.
