Arluis Weddings Covid19 Update April 3, 2020
We know couples with weddings upcoming or even well into the fall are wondering what to do considering the lingering uncertainty from the corona virus outbreak. Hawaii’s governor, David Ige, recently renewed his call for residents to remain vigilant and stay indoors. Many hotels and other venues are either closed, or in the process of shuttering for the near future. As of this writing (April 3, 2020), the Governor’s stay at home order extends to April 30th, 2020.
But what does this mean for weddings planned in late summer or even early autumn?
No one knows with certainty what will happen, or if the stay at home order will be extended. Many venues are unable to give a date when they will reopen at this point. If you are trying to decide whether or not to change your date, rest assured Arluis will do everything we can to assist in rescheduling, but at this point there is no way to know exactly when things will return to normal. Summer and autumn could see a return to normal, but without further guidance from the CDC and Governor Ige, uncertainty remains.
Having a backup plan could be a good option, so begin to think about possible alternate dates or venues, but don’t change anything until there is more clarity. It would be unfortunate to make changes now and then be unable to have the wedding you always dreamed of based on incomplete information. Staying the course while thinking of a potential backup plan could save headaches down the road. In any case, Arluis is here to assist, so let us know if you have any questions or concerns.Mahalo nui loa, Arluis Weddings Sally, Nanae, Hikaru and Jamie.
