‘Vanderpump Rules’: Stassi Schroeder Tweets About Planning a ‘Wedding That May Be Nonexistent’
Schroeder and Beau Clark are scheduled to marry in Italy in October. And while it is anyone’s guess what will happen with the current pandemic, Schroeder doesn’t seem optimistic. “So planning a wedding that may be nonexistent is fun. Def recommend,” she tweeted. A few fans suggested she host a “virtual” event but also wondered if she will have enough time to pull it together.
Italy is currently locked down due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Schroeder likely can’t access vendors or make specific plans until the country re-opens and businesses begin operating again.
She’s still moving forward with wedding planning
Schroeder shared she was going to continue with wedding planning. She told TV Insider the couple was still on track to move forward with the nuptials despite the pandemic.
“That is the plan,” she shared. “Obviously with coronavirus and everything that’s happening, we’re taking it very seriously. We’ve had a lot of discussions with [each other], with our wedding planners, with family and friends. The only thing we can do right now is take it day by day and see how things develop.”
She added, “Life happens, so we’ve mentally and emotionally prepared ourselves to cancel the wedding if it needs to happen, and we get married, I don’t know, in a frickin’ courthouse in L.A., then it is what it is. Right now all we can do is keep planning for the wedding we hope we’re going to have.”
The couple knew they’d have challenges planning in another country
Prior to the pandemic, the couple shared that planning a wedding in another country would be a challenge. “Because we’re doing it in another country so it’s like, and also dealing with production and stuff and trying to make sure that the venues allow filming,” Clark told Hollywood Life in December. “Like, our first choice they didn’t allow filming so that was a bummer.”
Friends Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula from Summer House also had wedding venue issues due to filming. The couple shared that their venue fell through during the first episode this season. Batula didn’t say what happened but later revealed on Instagram. “The wedding venue wouldn’t let us film there which is why it ‘fell through’ secrets out,” she responded to a fan’s question about why they canceled.
At the time, Clark said the couple was taking it slow. “We’re given a year, but my sister’s translating some of the documents and it’s going back, and production is going back so we’re just still waiting to hash out all the logistics of being able to film,” he added. “But it’s going, so we’re not stressed and I feel like at least we have enough time. I feel like we’re in limbo, but we’ve at least begun to start the first steps. We just have to wait for all the filming permits and going from one country to another country.”
