Saying "I do" With COVID-19
Since the middle of March of this year, our world has been faced with the Coronavirus pandemic. It has been a whirlwind for all of us. We had to stop seeing our friends and some family members. We have had to adapt and change our ways of life.
A lot has been lost but I think the only thing that has been keeping us afloat is…love.
Numerous couples around the world have been planning their beautiful weddings for months and or years but they still didn’t let COVID-19 stop them! Couples have had to change their venue, guest count, decorations, food, etc. for their weddings, but they made it work because at the end of the day, they wanted to be married. That’s all that mattered to them. Those of us who aren’t married or haven’t planned a wedding may not completely understand the process but I think we can all assume and agree on the hard work and also, the expenses that are put into each of these gorgeous weddings. It’s heartbreaking to change the vision of a day that’s supposed to be one of the best days of your life, but these couples kept persevering.
After reading other blogs on how couples felt about changing their plans, they were thankful for COVID-19 because even though they didn’t get the original wedding that they had planned on, they received a more intimate and more meaningful wedding that they never would have expected.
At the end of the day, these weddings are for you and your person. The love that you share together and bringing into the world through a union. That’s the beauty. Saying “I do” with COVID-19 may not be too bad after all.
Quick Tips for Your Wedding Transition During COVID-19
Talk it out with your close ones on what's best for your wedding first!
To reduce your guest count, invite close family members and then hold a Zoom call for everyone else to join the ceremony!
If your venue falls through, your backyard can be turned into a beautiful reception area.
Be proactive with your vendors and call them ahead to see if prices can remain the same if you decide to postpone the date.
Relax and remain calm, everything will work out for the best in the end.
