"Dave, Sean and Katie Talk COVID in the Wedding Industry"
“Everyone has been affected by COVID 19 and it sucks. You have been planning your wedding for years and now you are being forced to either change the plans for what that day is going to look like or move the date of the event altogether and simply put… that sucks. Here at Bigler, our world has been turned upside down, but we (like you) have adapted and are making the best of it. Our doors are still open and we are still having a BLAST with our couples! The KEY thing (for everyone) is your attitude. No one chose this, but we all must adapt and deal with it.
The purpose of this web page is to layout for you all the options as they pertain to your day and your contract with Bigler. Every situation is unique and we will do what we can to work with the two of you to make your day phenomenal! If you have any questions at all, PLEASE reach out! Pick up the phone and call me or just shoot me a text. I want to make your day an awesome one and I will do whatever I can to make that happen! – Dave
So here are your potential options:
If you are adamant about having your wedding day be exactly how you want it (with all the guests you want to have, zero restrictions and no masks) then this would be the best option for you. If you want to go this route there are a few things to consider:
You want to still have the reception that you dreamed of, with all your friends and family around you BUT, you do not want to wait to be married. So with this option, you do an intimate ceremony on your original planned date (whatever COVID restrictions allow you to do, 2 people, 12 people, 50 people etc). Then you want to postpone the celebration until a time in which you are able to have the party you want to have. Things to consider with this option.
In 2020 we have seen some AMAZING intimate weddings. Dave has had personal post-wedding conversations with every couple and 100% of the couples that made the decision to keep their dates and just adapt to the rules of the day we're so glad that they did. You can still have the wedding of your dreams, just be a little flexible and work with your venue and your vendors to adapt what that looks like!
In your married life, you are going to get tossed curve balls all the time, (in general) happy couples are those that adapt and together roll with the punches; making the most of whatever hand they are dealt. - I am sure you can tell Dave's personal preference at this point!
This is the least favorite option for us out of any of them, not because of the lost revenue, but honestly, because we are no longer a part of your celebration. There are two options when it comes to canceling your event.
Together, we can adapt and ensure that you still have a PHENOMENAL Wedding day! If you have any questions, are feeling stressed, or just want to vent, please feel free to give me a call on my cell, happy to chat! – Dave
