Covid-19 has dealt us all a blow and couples the world over have had to at least postpone their weddings twice. We have all gone through the motions. I wanted to write this to encourage all couples to look on the positive side, to take care of their mental health and to remember the most central reason you are getting married.
Planning your wedding involves many things but in my experience as a wedding planner, the most difficult aspect is dealing with personalities. There is the mom, that wants the bride to do things her way. The bridesmaids who is living vicariously through the bride and if you happen to have a big family, the aunt that keeps on asking if you have any cancellations yet?
I find that this lockdown period has allowed people to focus on what is important. The petty factors can be minimized if you set clear boundaries in your relationships. I guess this is true of life even pre-pandemic. Lockdown has highlighted by the amount of work that most corporate employees have had to endure or if you are self-employed, you have had the entrepreneurial stress of how you are going to make it economically in these tough times. Added to this, the one big highlight of 2020 did not happen.
My belief though is that couples are going to into their marriage with intention and the wedding is now a fore taste of what lies ahead. Wedding days are going are going to be more meaningful and a symbol of bringing people together. I know it is difficult to play the waiting game. It is also sad to change plans all the while having the uncertainty hanging over you. If you are not cutting your numbers down and having an intimate wedding, then rest assured that we are here, waiting on the sidelines with you until you are ready to make the move.
