Sweet Bride, with a wedding scheduled during the COVID-19 pandemic, I am so sorry you’re having to make the decision on where to go from here.
Your wedding date is approaching, and this pandemic has all the plans up in the air. After months, maybe even years of planning, your date has become a COVID-19 Wedding conflict. You’re overwhelmed, sad, and probably angry too- and that’s okay. That’s normal. I’m a firm believer in feeling all the feels- and then make a game plan. You have to grieve- and then start to pick up the pieces.
We are all in uncharted waters right now. You’ve spent so much time and put so much love into planning your day, planning for hiccups and speedbumps, but nothing could have prepared you for a COVID-19 wedding. As a wedding vendor, my heart breaks for my couples + their families. I am doing all I possibly can to accommodate all of my couples affected by this.
My priority is making this tough situation a smooth transition and as stress-free as humanly possible right now.
I am 100% working with my couples to find a new date—if I have the date open + they want it, it’s theirs. Coordinating with all of the vendors can be tough to make sure everyone has the new date available, but once you get that nailed down it will take a load off of your shoulders.
At the end of the day, I want you to remember that this will pass. At the end of the day, what matters most is that you will be marrying the love of your life—no matter when and where that is. Some brides are choosing to still legally get married on their original date, and then have their wedding celebration at a later date! Being forced to go through this unimaginable and tough time together will be a true test of faith + strengthen your relationship.
Every couple has a different set of circumstances, family dynamics, etc. surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and ultimately has to do what is best for their families.
Just know I am always here if you need to vent, need help trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces, and I am praying for you!
Until your wedding day comes, keep smiling, keep dancing, lean on your partner. Just because you haven’t said I Do, your love is worth celebrating!
