Florida Covid Wedding Planning Updates


Like everyone in our community, both locally and globally, dealing with the unfolding events in the world today have been a challenge. We wanted to share some Florida Covid wedding planning updates here at MasterPiece. Our hearts go out especially to couples everywhere facing the impossible decisions that now need to be made. We've been busy working with our wonderful couples this season that have made the difficult, but courageous choice to postpone their celebrations.


We want to reach out to all of you as well. We are here for you, and we'd love to help and support you as you navigate these difficult choices.


Whether you're facing a situation where you need to postpone your day and don't know where to start, or you're trying to finish up plans for a Fall date this year, or early next Spring and are struggling to get it all done, we're here to help! We can assist rescheduling vendors, give recommendations on ways to reach out to your guests, or even help you re-imagine your style from a Spring to Fall or Winter vibe.


Maybe your wedding isn't until late 2021 or 2022 and you're just getting started? With all this extra time at home, social distancing, it's the PERFECT time to start reaching out to vendors, preparing your guest lists, and Pinterest-ing your hearts out. There's so much that's possible to accomplish virtually and over the phone. I'd love to help get your planning off on the right foot with any advice you're looking for. Vendors are excited and willing to work with you now! Don't hesitate to start reaching out and reserving your date.


On our side of things for planning and consulting, we are waiving all rescheduling fees for any couples affected by the current restrictions and recommendations. We've also begun offering alternative deposit amounts and payment plans for anyone looking to reserve a future date with us. We want to work with you to make this as easy and as stress free as it is possible to be. We have virtual and phone appointment times available for couples as well!


A new service that we've begun offering to couples as an additional way to help during the pandemic is the option of one-hour virtual planning sessions. Book an hour planning session with us and we can talk about ANYTHING you'd like that would help make your planning easier. From timelines, to vendor selections, or even tricky family situations - take advantage of our experience and pick our brains! If you decide to book us afterwards for your day, the cost of your sessions comes off your collection amount. You can read more about it on our Pricing page.


If you have any questions at all about our services, you can reach out to us at our Contact Page on our website.


Let us be a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen, and a source for wedding inspiration and planning advice. It's what we do best! We've got you, we've got this, and we WILL get through this together. Stay healthy!
