The Coronavirus pandemic has forced Gloria Govan and former NBA player Derek Fisher to postpone their April wedding.
“It was just based off of what the CDC advised and the current state of affairs,” Govan, 35, shared with PEOPLE of the decision. “We just felt like it was in everyone’s best interest, really.”
“So we were like, ‘Yeah, it’s just probably best to postpone.’ We had a few people traveling, a lot of our parents and aunts and uncles who are a little older. So we felt like it was in their best interest, and for everybody, to just not put anyone at risk. It was obviously a really crappy decision to have to make.”
She assured her guests that the wedding will still take place.
“People were very, very understanding, which is really sweet. We have a great wedding planner,” Govan said. “Erica Friedman is absolutely brilliant. She’s been really sweet with handling the vendors for us, you know, and explaining the situation.”
The former LA Laker Fisher proposed to Govan in April 2018 after three years of dating.
