While the global COVID-19 pandemic has sideswept so many plans with #CancelEverything, couples who were planning to walk down the aisle in 2020 have an added consideration. Here’s how engaged celebs are changing their wedding plans in 2020.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom
The pair, who are also expecting their first child together, were to tie the knot in Japan this June, but realized they’d have to pivot and change their wedding plans pretty early on in the pandemic. Perry and Orlando are now considering shifting locations closer to home, and in the United States.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez
This ageless beauty and her pro-sports veteran had to hit pause on their wedding. While the couple never officially announced a date, speculation pegged it for this summer in Italy. Lopez shared with Ellen earlier in April, “It’s something we’re going to have to wait and see in a few months how this all pans out.”

Lala Kent and Rendall Emmet
The Vanderpump Rules mainstay had to postpone her April 18 wedding. Originally scheduled in Newport Beach, California, Kent and Emmet have now set a July date. Sharing the news with the public, the couple said, “We are obviously saddened by this but for the ultimate safety of our families and guests, we have made the decision to wait and see how everything progresses. Safety will always be our number one priority.”

Dennis Quaid and Laura Savoie
Like others on this list, Quaid and fiancee Laura Savoie had to push back their intimate wedding ceremony, originally set for April 4 in Hawaii. The couple made the difficult decision once news of one of the hardest hit regions in Italy started to emerge. They shared that they have several immunocompromised friends and family, and the two decided it best to hold off, and perhaps move the location “closer to home.”

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
Princess Beatrice just can’t catch a break and third time definitely isn’t a charm. Her wedding has been pushed back a third time (the first two times were related to her father Prince Andrew’s ties to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.). The date was set for May 29, with an intimate ceremony at The Chapel Royal in St. Jame’s Palace, followed by a private reception hosted by Her Majesty in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.

Taraji P. Henson and Kelvin Hayden
Already rescheduled from April to June, it’s looking like Henson and fiance Hayden will likely have to push back the date again to later this summer. The “Empire” star shared she is concerned about the couple’s elderly grandparents, in their 90s and 80s. Not only is Henson a totally inspiring single mom, but a caring grandaughter too.

Tinsley Mortimer and Scott Kluth
This Real Housewives of New York City staple also had plans to marry in Japan before the hold and secure measures were enacted. The couple is now eyeing closer-to-home options, and even a court ceremony in Chicago if travel restrictions don’t ease soon.

Liam Gallagher and Debbie Gwyther
The younger half of the now-defunct Oasis (and a ‘90s listening staple) was set to marry his longtime girlfriend Debbie Gwyther on the beautiful Amalfi Coast in Italy later this July. With the pandemic in full swing, the couple was forced to change these plans. Speaking about the disappointment, a source told The Sun , “Luckily, after so long with Liam, Debbie is used to dealing with things not going to plan.”
