Vicki Gunvalson is making some major changes to her wedding plans amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum confirmed that she has decided to postpone her nuptials to fiancé Steve Lodge due to concerns over the ongoing outbreak.
The couple was originally planning to get married in a small ceremony this month, with Vicki’s two children — daughter Briana Culberson and son Michael Wolfsmith — in attendance, along with Lodge’s four adult children. “We were going to go get married in April and try to get as many of our six kids together and all of that,” Vicki told Hollywood Life in an Instagram Live interview.
But the duo has put those plans on pause for now, as the health crisis spurs strict safety restrictions all over the country. “We’re doing nothing,” Vicki said of where her current wedding plans stand.
As for when she might reschedule the event, Vicki reveals that she’s not “rushing to get down the aisle right now” and that she’s focusing her attention on her company, COTO Insurance and Financial Services, during this time of uncertainty. “There’s a lot more I’ve got to do which is keep this business and my staff who’s not here right now,” she said.
Vicki isn’t the only Bravoleb 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 also postponing their spring nuptials. Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark have discussed the possibility of canceling their October wedding in Rome amid the ongoing lockdown in Italy.
