We currently live in incredibly uncertain times.
COVID19 has wreaked havoc across the world, causing millions of deaths and crippling economies.
But things are starting to look up. We now have vaccines that go a long way in helping save lives and minimize the spread of COVID.
As vaccines continue to rollout and the effects of COVID have continued into 2021, Samoa's borders remain closed still.
For many businesses in Samoa, this sadly means having to close or operate at a minimal as we rely heavily on tourism for our bread and butter. Mine included.
I have received many emails from worried couples who have had weddings planned in Samoa asking what this means for them.
Due to the large volume of clients asking for refunds, it is not possible to do so for everyone. This is especially difficult for small vendors (myself included) trying to survive a prolonged period of ongoing costs, but with no income.
However, I completely understand this has been out of your control. With that in mind, I’m happy to hold your booking in credit until such a time the situation improves, and Samoa opens its borders once again.
I appreciate that it is hard to make long term plans in light of the current uncertainty, so no stress – I’ll work with you to book an alternative date. There’s no rush.
If you'd like to reach me, or have any questions, please email me on my alternative email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime, stay safe wherever you are! I encourage you to get vaccinated if it is safe to do so, and always listen to the experts in the science and medical fields so we can safely open up our borders soon.
Much love from Samoa,
