It was only a few months ago that we made our bridal gown predictions for the celebrity weddings set to take place in 2020, but a lot has happened since – and the world as we know it is no longer the same. While some (influencers like Nadiya Hasan and Fouz Al Fahad) did manage to tie the knot before the lockdowns began worldwide, others had to postpone walking down the aisle. With venues booked, invites sent, and wedding dresses fitted, these canceled celebrity weddings mark the moment when “I do” turned into “I don’t know what happens next”.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom
Soon-to-be parents Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were set to tie the knot in Japan last month. Pop icon Perry was reportedly looking forward to walking down the aisle while pregnant, but had to alter her nuptial plans in wake of the pandemic.
Emma Stone and Dave McCary
After three years of dating, Emma Stone and Dave McCary announced their engagement last year, placing them high on the list of one of the most anticipated weddings of 2020. However, the couple was forced to postpone their wedding ceremony, which was scheduled to take place in March at an undisclosed location.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
The royal wedding of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is another highly anticipated wedding ceremony that had to be canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak. The princess – who was supposed to say “I do” on May 29 at Chapel Royal in St. James’s Palace – has confirmed that the couple will set a new date after the social distancing measures are completely lifted.
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were planning a summer wedding, but their plans are likely altered in wake of the pandemic. While they haven’t officially announced whether or not they will postpone the ceremony, Lopez did confirm that the virus has affected their plans 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,” she said.
