As of today, there are certain areas of Michigan that are rolling back through phases and it’s confusing when it comes to have Covid-19 (or Coronavirus) will be affecting your summer and fall wedding in 2020. This means that we need to figure out how to approach Michigan Weddings and Covid-19.
While we do not have all of the answers, we are going to break things down for you in the simplest way we possibly can because our entire goal at The Lux Bride is to be able to help you navigate through the planning process and Covid is a huge part of that right now.
As always, all information can be seen right here on Michigan.gov/coronavirus
So…here is what the Phases are clearly distinguished in this article.
Here’s a quick visual to help with Michigan Weddings and Covid-19:
Each phase is broken down at this article for you to research.
Next, let’s look at how each phase will be determined moving forward or backward. Here’s another quick visual, but again, we recommend you check out MI Safe Plan by clicking here.
Ok, so now you know this but what region of Michigan will your wedding be in? Check out below and also see Michigan.gov/coronavirus for up-to-date information that is reported daily per region.
Here is where we currently are as of July 9, 2020. Again, go back up and see how the colors indicate which phase each county is in.
Now, what does all of this actually mean for your wedding?
This is all subject to change and each regulation might differ depending on what county and region your wedding located in so you need to be vigilant about checking in with your venue about what they can and cannot do.
Let’s break it down by Phase so you can be prepared when it comes to your wedding day…
PHASE 1 UNCONTROLLED GROWTH
PHASE 2 PERSISTENT SPREAD
PHASE 3 FLATTENING
PHASE 4 IMPROVING
PHASE 5 CONTAINING
PHASE 6 POST-PANDEMIC
Personal and social: Minimal to no lasting limitations on personal and/or social activities
What do we recommend you do right now.
Contact your venue and be prepared for them to not have a full answer.
None of us can have all the answers, all we can do is continue to keep up to date on what phase we are in because there is no way that Governor Whitmer can give us an answer on when we will reach each phase because it is truly up to us.
What actions can you take right now:
This is meant to help those couples last-minute changing their entire wedding! Re-planning from the ground up bc their venues decided to stay shut down or tighten restrictions further. Alyssa is offering this as a free consultation because each couple will need something completely different and she won’t know exactly what you need until you chat via phone!
