The Coronavirus pandemic has turned our daily lives upside down, especially when it comes to large events. As if planning a wedding isn't stressful enough, couples all over Pennsylvania now have to deal with the complex and uncertain nature of statewide restrictions on indoor and outdoor gatherings. The gathering restrictions in place leading up to or at the time of your wedding can impact the ability of your venue, vendors, DJ, etc. to perform under the terms of a contract with you. While the existence of a Force Majeure (Act of God) Clause may contemplate certain situations (see Article specifically addressing Force Majeure during COVID), there are certain steps that you can take to make sure that you get the wedding you deserve, and to have options in the event that your vendors cannot give you what you are paying for.
