Coronavirus has forced thousands of brides and grooms to alter their wedding plans—celebrity couples included. Some of our favorite A-listers who planned on walking down the aisle in March, April and even this summer have since postponed their plans in response to the pandemic.
A few couples have already announced their new wedding date (Lala Kent and Randall Emmett moved their nuptials from April to July), while others are still figuring out their new plans. Even the royal wedding between Princess Beatrice and her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi has been put on hold!
There's no doubt that the current circumstances have brought on a series of unprecedented challenges for couples of all kinds. Here's how celebrity couples are responding to the situation. And although they'll be walking down the aisle later than they'd hoped all the matters is that they will eventually say "I do."
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom
The day after Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom shared their pregnancy news, it was also revealed that the couple decided to postpone their upcoming nuptials.
The engaged pair planned on tying the knot in Japan in March, but they had to quickly alter their plans due to the global pandemic. "Katy was actually really excited about walking down the aisle pregnant," a source told People. "They were both so elated that all the wedding details were finally coming together, but they are hitting pause because of coronavirus." 150 guests were slated to attend.
While Perry will have to wait a little bit longer to wear white down the aisle, we hope the couple is able to make their Japanese destination nuptials a reality soon!
Emma Stone and Dave McCary
Actress Emma Stone and Saturday Night Live segment Dave McCary were planning to wed mid-March but were forced to change their plans at the last minute. The couple reportedly chose Los Angeles as the destination for their "I dos," which were undoubtedly going to be star-studded. And while a new wedding date has yet to be announced, we imagine they'll have to wait until at least the summer or fall to tie the knot.
Lala Kent and Randall Emmett
Planning on saying "I do" on April 18, 2020, Lala Kent of Vanderpump Rules and her movie producer fiancé Randall Emmett have postponed their wedding festivities to July. Despite the date change, their original wedding plans still stand, which reportedly includes a ceremony in Newport Beach, California.
A few days after the couple announced the decision, Kent was spotted with bright red hair—a stark difference from her classic blonde shade. Her co-star, Jax Taylor, also revealed that the couple still plans on tying the knot at the courthouse before hosting a traditional ceremony this summer.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
Even a royal wedding has been put on pause thanks to COVID-19. Princess Beatrice was planning to wed fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on May 29, 2020, but Buckingham Palace confirmed that the couple is postponing their "I dos."
The princess and her Italian beau were set to wed in The Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace followed by a private reception hosted by the Queen in the gardens of Buckingham Palace. The Royal Family has yet to announce a new date for the nuptials but we are eagerly awaiting another royal soiree!
James Middleton and Alizee Thevenet
Another celebrity couple to postpone their wedding plans is James Middleton and his fiancée Alizee Thevenet. The pair were reportedly planning a celebration over the summer but have since decided to push back their plans in the wake of the pandemic. "It's very sad, but it's just not practical to hold it in this crisis," a source close to Middleton told the Daily Mail. "Holding an AngloFrench wedding is impossible in the coming months and is still likely to be difficult in the summer."
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez
While Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez haven't officially disclosed whether or not they postponed their wedding, Lopez revealed that COVID-19 did in fact affect their plans. "Actually, [Coronavirus] did affect it a little bit, so we will see what happens now," Lopez said while appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show. "Honestly, I really don't know what's going to happen now as far as dates or anything like that. We're just kind of in a holding pattern like the rest of the world. Again, it's something that we're gonna have to wait and see in a few months, how this all pans out." The couple was in the midst of planning a summer 2020 wedding.
Hoda Kotb and Joel Schiffman
News anchor Hoda Kotb and her fiancé Joel Schiffman are preparing to postpone their beach wedding due to the pandemic. "We are literally about to push the button on the save the dates just because...we kind of have our reservations, we know what we want to do, but who’s to know if it’s going to need to be delayed? So Joel and I have been discussing it," Kotb told People on April 14. But although the couple hasn't officially tied the knot, Kotb also revealed that she "already feel[s] married" to Schiffman. Only time will tell when they can make it official!
