I’ve always known that weddings were about two insanely in love people coming together and becoming one. I’m sure you’re sitting there saying “Duh, Brianna” but hear me out for a second. It’s so easy to get caught up in the stress that comes with planning a wedding that we forget about the true reason for the event…marriage. The party is a great bonus, but it’s not the end all be all. Unfortunately, a lot of you had to postpone your big weddings because of COVID-19 and I’m sure you have a lot of feelings about it. Anger. Sadness. Fear. Confusion. I know it hasn’t been fun or easy, but I’ve seen a lot of you put a positive spin on the whole situation. You’re still showing up and getting married…it just looks a little different than you had imagined.
When you’re forced to change your plans, you’re quickly reminded of what truly matters. It’s not about the dress, the party, or the food, my friend. It’s about YOU. You and your love can still get married! You get to really focus on each other without all of the distractions of a big, traditional wedding day. So even though you can’t celebrate the day with all of your friends and family right now, please remember that there will be a time for that in the future. For now, you get to celebrate your marriage just the two of you (or with just a few friends/family)! That sounds like an incredible way to get married if you ask me.
