As of March 27th, the CDC is recommending postponing events of 50 or more attendees for the next 8 weeks and gatherings of 10+ through at least 3/31. The White House has also put out nationwide guidelines calling all Americans to avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people, and 22 states have announced Public Health Orders that require residents to stay home unless headed to the grocery store or seeking out medical treatment. These preventative measures and public health mandates will help to save many people, but there are many aspects of our daily lives that will be disrupted and significantly impacted. Wedding planning is one of those aspects. If you’re getting married this year or have to move your wedding, it’s important to remember that you don’t necessarily have to cancel- you can make a contingency plan and plan for the ways in which coronavirus can impact your wedding day while moving things forward. When to start planning a wedding or a wedding contingency plan is now. Tropics Entertainment has some of the top bands for weddings from Florida, touring all across the U.S. from New York to Chicago and is available to take booking for future event dates, so feel free to call today.

Coronavirus And What It Means For Your Wedding


The Coronavirus, or COVID-19, comes from a large family of viruses that are transmitted between animals and people. The World Health Organization notes that common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath, and other difficulties in breathing. More serious cases of the disease may include pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and possibly even death. Possibly originating in Wuhan, China, it has now spread to the majority of Western and Eastern countries along with a large portion of the globe. So what does this mean for your wedding? Due to the fast-spreading nature of this disease, quarantines have been issued in several countries including China, the UK, and the US. If your wedding is within the next 1-3 months, there is a significant possibility that your plans could be majorly impacted. It’s essential to take proper precautions in order to ensure the safety of yourselves and your guests, especially now that there are mandates restricting public gatherings. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to cancel your wedding, as many wedding venues and services such as Tropics Entertainment are allowing their clients to postpone or move their events at no extra charge.


When To Start Planning A Wedding Contingency Plan? Now!


For anyone whose weddings are planned for this uncertain time, it’s definitely time to come up with some contingency plans for your wedding. It’s crucial to think about all your options before you completely cancel, especially as things move forward and situations change. Some options (as of now) include:

  • Getting legally married now and then having the ceremony later!
  • Postponing everything until you’re able to move forward with the wedding you’ve dreamed of
