As concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic grow, Cynthia Bailey is revealing whether she plans to delay her upcoming nuptials to fiancé Mike Hill. The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member previously settled on a wedding date of October 10, 2020, but says those plans are now up in the air amid the ongoing global health crisis.
“[Coronavirus] has affected it of course,” she recently told HollywoodLife. “I’ve spoken to my event planner and the venue, just to have the conversation, because we don’t know what’s going on. See, I’m kind of hesitant to even send out the invites right now to be honest, because I just don’t know.”
Though the date is still several months away, Cynthia says she can’t be certain the wedding will take place as planned. “We always thought 10/10/20 was the perfect date. I’m like 2020, let me tell you something. I owe 2019 an apology,” she said.
As for the possibility of moving the wedding if necessary, Cynthia says she and Mike are still working out the logistics. “In the event we need to change it or postpone the date, you know what does that mean? Because we paid deposits and all that stuff already,” she said. “We’re going to get married; whether it’s 10/10/20, not so sure about that.”
The RHOA mom also wants to make sure all of the couple’s loved ones will be able to attend, as she previously explained to Entertainment Tonight. "A lot of our friends are from out of town, I don’t know if they’ll be able to afford to come to our wedding at this point," she said "I really don’t know. Or even, be in the spirit to go, this has been very -- I mean, maybe people will want to come out and celebrate and want to go everywhere they can go, but I really don’t know."
Cynthia and Mike aren’t the only Bravolebs who have had to rethink their wedding plans due to the coronavirus outbreak. Earlier this month, Vanderpump Rules’ Lala Kent and Randall Emmett confirmed that they’re postponing their spring nuptials. Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark have also discussed the possibility of canceling their October wedding in Rome amid the ongoing lockdown in Italy.
