With stay-at-home orders in effect across a growing number of countries amid the coronavirus pandemic, these celebrities are postponing their nuptials until they can safely celebrate with friends and family.
There’s no doubt that the current circumstances have brought on a series of unprecedented challenges for couples of all kinds. 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.”
