Weddings are major events in the lives of those that plan, partake in and attend them which usually means they are placed in a time in the future when planned. Most people plan their wedding to be months or even a year or more away from when they’re making the preparations depending on their wishes and venue.
This means that plenty of couples had their weddings planned for early or mid-2020 and had to quickly postpone when the pandemic hit. A handful of celebrities were a part of this group and had their special day changed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Here are some of the stars who’ve postponed their wedding due to coronavirus.
Katy Perry And Orlando Bloom
This couple had planned to have their wedding in April of 2020 at a destination of their choice after announcing their engagement in February of 2019. April was when the beginning of the outbreak was still going on and some restrictions had been made, but cases were high and concerning. Katy Perry recently had a baby so who knows when and where the wedding will be moved to.
Dennis Quaid And Laura Savoie
Dennis Quaid, star in The Parent Trap, and his fiancé planned to tie the knot in early April in Hawaii. This was planned to be at Dennis’ friend’s house in Kauai. When asked the day before the date they had planned, since plans had already had to be canceled due to the virus, Quaid told reporters that they were disappointed but celebrate their upcoming wedding every day regardless.
Jordan Fisher And Ellie Woods
Jordan Fisher, best known for winning Dancing With The Stars season 25, had also planned to have their wedding in Hawaii. Their date was set to be July 24 but when the outbreak occurred and it had to be postponed they changed the plans. The couple is supposed to have gotten married in November of 2020 rather than their original idea of late July. Fisher and Ellie have been together for a long time, so they probably don’t mind the slightly longer wait for marriage.
Liz Gillies And Michael Corcoran
Liz Gillies and her fiancé Michael placed their wedding in April on the birthday of one of their dogs. After the outbreak changed their plans they went through a few different ideas to find their way to a wedding. Why they came to the conclusion and got married was discussed by Liz, they postponed a year but then decided against having a big wedding to be able to get married. They tied the knot in August with a small group of attendees on a farm in New Jersey.
Postponing a wedding can be much more of an ordeal than anyone would think of since there are multiple plans made and paid for or deposited on in advance that all have to shift. Sometimes changing the date of your special day means you won’t be able to have the same venue or plans you had before due to other bookings. Celebrities who had their own early 2020 weddings in place needed to change their plans to be safe for themselves and others as well as follow regional guidelines put in place for the pandemic. This list gives you a little look into those couples and how they had to cope with coronavirus for their special days.
