We are halfway into the year and it seems that 2020 is mocking all the things you listed down as your new year resolutions. Travel more? Sure! Try new restaurants and places? Of course! Get Married? Yeah right! The big COVID-19 threw a curveball that sent all your best-laid plans in a disarray. This goes to show that sometimes no matter what we plan, some things are not in our control. Plan as we may, life is as dynamic as they come, and things will be constantly shifting. Our only shot at staying sane amidst this to take things in our stride and ride the tide.

It encourages us to dream-for that a possible vacation in the future, of going out to that restaurant you wanted to try out, or that wedding which we have been too scared to plan too aggressively for. It empowers us to plan for that dream wedding which we have been too scared to dream of recently and have been reigning back on. Through this smoke and mirror, there is always one thing that you can count on-us and our spread of resources we bring in every weekend for our quarantine brides! Read on for more inspo and updates!
