Depending on where you live, micro-weddings may be the only option in your area. Or… a bash for 400 guests might still be a thing! Not only are the rules all over the place, but a wedding pro’s personal beliefs on whether live events should be taking place during a pandemic certainly make the situation even more difficult. In this week’s episode of the This Week In Weddings podcast, we’re chatting with a wedding planner about her thought process on moving forward with events both before and after testing positive for Covid-19 and her experience sharing the news with others she potentially exposed, including clients just days away from their wedding.

About our guest:
