We've talked a lot about getting married during a pandemic, I mean we ourselves are a #COVIDCouple. But what if you're still in the planning phase?
Whether your original plan was to get married in 2021 or 2022, or you've now had to postpone and extend that planning phase, here are some helpful tips to remember.
𝘋𝘰𝘯'𝘵 𝘗𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘤 Easy to say, Hard to do. But, trust us, freaking out never helped anyone. If you need to go into full-on stress mode, do it - feel those feelings. But wait until you've gotten through that before sending a whirlwind of emails and making important decisions. Remember to keep breathing and make decisions from a calm mindset instead of a place of overwhelming doom.
𝘒𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘠𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘋𝘦𝘢𝘭 𝘉𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘬𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘈𝘳𝘦 There are some things that are out of your control. Perhaps a mask mandate is now in place or a ban on large gatherings. In many cases it won't be that black and white. Now is a good time to sit down and figure out what your deal breakers are. If only half of your guests can attend, are you comfortable moving forward? If your grandparents can't make it because of travel safety or health concerns, will that be a game changer for you?
𝘊𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘶𝘯𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘞𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘠𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘝𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘰𝘳𝘴 𝘌𝘢𝘳𝘭𝘺 Don't avoid difficult conversations. If you're planning to move locations, postpone or cancel waiting to have those conversations won't change the outcome - it will only make logistics and possible solutions worse. So have these conversations early, even before the final decision is made. More often than not your vendors want to help you any way they can!
𝘓𝘦𝘢𝘯 𝘐𝘯𝘵𝘰 𝘠𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘊𝘩𝘰𝘪𝘤𝘦𝘴 In the early months of COVID it was easy to think everything would go back to normal, but as time goes on it's becoming more and more clear that we may not be back to normal anytime soon. So try and think of whatever celebration you have as the real thing! Because it is! Even if you have another celebration later, this first celebration is still as real as it gets...because YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED! So don't forget to celebrate that love too!
