Corona virus pandemic and anand karaj

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh.

we are a couple who are a little frustrated and need some help according to you what our opportunities are.

We were actually getting married in April, but our local gurdwara is now closed to assemblies due to the corona virus outbreak.
It is also a very, very uncertain time for when things will turn out well. We have always imagined a dream wedding, like most other couples.
Everything from jaggo, maiyan, to rituals, etc.
We have also had recent court marraige.
But based on our traditions and culture, we cannot move together and live together before anand Karaj.
So we are here to solve our problem.
if we perform anand karaj, we lose all our previous plans, ie jaggo, maiyan and all, and just have a reciption party later. nor should we have a decent anand karaj.
Is there any other ways for us to move in together? By having a path, and move in together, and postpone our wedding until next year, where we can do anand Karaj and everything we dreamt of.
And take a anand Karaj twice? Is that possible. One now to move together, and second with our marriage we had planned.

First of all, congratulations for your upcoming wedding.

Anand and Lavan is a commitment by you to strive for a union between your soul and God. Merging your life/soul with your spouse' life/soul is the first small step (first lesson) towards merging with God who is everywhere and in everybody. No amount of gatherings or Jaago or lack thereof would add or take away from Anand.

Why not perform Anand Karaj now with your immediate family, and arrange the parties and jaago and rituals later when the circumstances permit. If later, you also want to include a religious ceremony in your rituals, you can arrange a path or Keertan as an offering of thanks and invite your friends and loved ones.
