As the coronavirus outbreak continues to make headline new across the world, those planning their weddings may be wondering should they cancel their upcoming nuptials or honeymoons.

With active cases now surpassing 100,000 globally, we are now seeing a major knock-on effect for both real-life couples and wedding industry professionals. There are so many boutiques, designers and brands that manufacture gowns/goods in China. It’s believed that production and shipping delays could take up to three weeks to begin.

If your wedding is booked in one of the quarantine hotspots (Italy and China) you will more than likely have to consider postponing your big day or moving the destination entirely. If you do need to take drastic measures, be sure to let your guests all know. Either send out printed cards, text messages/emails or call them personally, just make sure everyone knows.
