Weekly COVID-19 Wedding Resources: July 17th, 2020

We are sitting in the month of July and we still have a long way to go, and 2020 seems to have taken the cake for being a year which will bring the cold sweat down on anybody even decades from now! It hasn’t been an easy time, but who promised it will be? It is just a vulnerable time to be in, and everybody needs some extra love now, more so than ever! Love will keep us sane when crazy seems to be the theme of the party for 2020. It will empower us through tough times and soothe us in mellow ones. Love will keep us going when the going gets tough. Which explains why while some people are postponing and canceling their weddings, than are others who are eloping and getting married in their living rooms with great urgency, as it seemed too important of a decision to be waited on. The world of weddings is torn between creative weddings with minimal guest lists, to extending the wedding day to a time when the coast will look clearer and you can have the big wedding you have been planning for. No matter which both you are sitting on, if you are a quarantine bride, there is a wedding to be planned, which is where we come in. Wedding planning is not all cake-testing and building flower crowns (we wish) and with a global pandemic in the picture, it is even more challenging and we know you could use all the help. Every week, as sure as day follows the night, we come bearing links to resources around the world of the internet to help with your wedding planning.  

 

Like everything that you partake on, your wedding is also your own way of self-expression. You want people to look at your wedding and know that it reflects you and your partner in the best accurate way and the vibe you want to invite. Wedding themes help serve this purpose and give words to your thoughts and help you manifest just the wedding which feels true to your personality and taste. Check out the most amazing wedding themes which are having their moment right now!
