LATEST UPDATE: 10/05/2020
To all my clients in Barbados and around the world, my heart breaks for you. I know the excitement, the joy and the thrill of planning a wedding. I can only imagine the disappointment and just plane old yucky feeling of having to postpone your day because of this horrendous virus, COVID-19.
Please rest assured, I’m here with and for you.
We take government regulations very seriously and put the health of ourselves, our families and our clients first so that we can be here for you.
As of today Barbados is allowing weddings of up to 500 people. There are no signs of this changing, so please have no fear - you can go ahead and book your wedding here in Barbados! Make sure to check us out for daily updates on Instagram and see what’s happening on the rock. Please also check the Barbados Government Information Service for the latest COVID-19 regulations.

Postponements for 2020 Booked Weddings
When you postpone, you will be required to pay half of your balance as per your original due date, and the other half one month before your new booked date. Please remember, that once you reach out and let us know you want to postpone your wedding date, there will be no fee for postponement for a date we are available. You have until the end of 2021 to reschedule your wedding with us and you can postpone once without a penalty fee.
Postponements for 2021 Booked Weddings
For clients booked for weddings in 2021 and want to postpone, the above will apply ONLY IF the postponement is due to COVID-19 regulations preventing the wedding from taking place. Should you choose to postpone your 2021 wedding date because of COVID-19 regulations that do not prevent the wedding from taking place, there will be a fee required to book a new date and will be subject to current pricing. When you postpone, you will also be required to pay half your balance as per your original date, and the other half one month before your new booked date.
When postponing, please remember that flexibility is the name of the game. Many popular Saturday dates for 2020 and 2021 have already been booked, so you may need to consider postponing your new date wedding to a Friday or Sunday. At the end of the day, the people matter, and not so much the day, right?
We know this is your very last resort, and we work with every client to try and come up with a new date that works for everyone so as to avoid canceling. However, this may not always work out and canceling your wedding may be your only option. We understand. If you decide to cancel, no further payments will be due. Per the contract, all payments are non-refundable.
We will send you a Mutual Release and Rescission of Contract Agreement that must be signed and the date will be released and opened to new inquiries.
We know this is not an easy decision to make, but also know we are here for you to make this process easier. If you are even considering a change of plans for your wedding, please reach out to us as soon as possible. We want your day to happen!
