Josephine Skriver is putting her wedding plans on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Victoria’s Secret model, 27, confirmed on Wednesday that she and fiancé Alexander DeLeon have decided to postpone their nuptials, but are remaining positive despite the unexpected change.
“We’re just happy that our family and friends are happy and healthy,” she told People magazine. “People around the world are going through so much worse than a wedding postponement. It would be selfish of us to complain.”
However, Skriver did admit that the call to cancel was a “tough decision to make.”
She also said on her Instagram Stories, “Some days I’m just like, ‘F–k you, COVID!’”
“When you wait for a moment your entire life and then have to postpone, it’s never easy,” Skriver told People. “We debated it for weeks, trying everything we could to make it work. At the end of the day, the safety of our friends and family was the most important.”
While the model didn’t disclose when the wedding was supposed to take place, she added that part of the reason they had to be halted was because there was a delay in the making of her dress.
“The fabric for my dress actually got stuck in production because of COVID, so I wasn’t even sure we could make it in time and wasn’t even ready to fully try it on,” she shared. “I’m sure so many brides are dealing with the same thing and I feel for them more than ever!”
Aside from the date, the soon-to-be bride said not much else has changed in her wedding plans.
“I’m excited it’s already rolled out and ready to get set up,” she said. “I think the one year move-back will give me time to really enjoy the process more. It was a lot more stressful than I thought and I’m excited to use this time to make it even more special.”
Skriver and DeLeon got engaged in November 2018. The musician popped the question while the couple were vacationing together in Finland.
