Adapting Wedding Plans to a Smaller Crowd

With the pandemic shutting down venues, businesses, and even courthouses, the vast majority of couples with a scheduled wedding are having to cancel their plans and honeymoons.

Option #1: Postpone your wedding by rescheduling for a later date. This may not be a good idea because bookings for 2021 are filling up very quickly as more and more people cancel their weddings.
