Weekly COVID-19 Wedding Resources: May 15th, 2020

Hey Beautiful! How are things going? Are you taking your vitamins? Are you moving at all?  Have you exhausted the content of Netflix already? Are you missing wearing your jeans? (Just kidding! We all know you aren’t!). Doesn’t it feel like just yesterday that you said ‘Yes’ to your sweetheart to the possibility of spending forever together and were floating a few inches above the ground with happiness! You couldn’t wait to start picking the invites and planning and table settings and were looking up bridal gown designs online. It was as if the world revolved around you for a few weeks. Until it didn’t. You were jolted back to earth by the cruel virus we don’t like to name it around here! And the world is in a state of shock. Everything is paused. And of course, your wedding is too. Everything that needs you to be tactile is put on hold. Wedding dress shopping with your besties? Paused. Venue visits? Paused. Bachelorette trip to the beaches? Really? 

 

While the business and mobility are paused to a standstill, lives are not paused. We still go on, working, attending meetings, working out, cooking, and doing things, and there is no reason why wedding planning should stop. While you are either settling into this new normalcy or waiting for the world to get better, you can still do little things to work your way towards your wedding. Your wedding planning doesn’t need to come to a complete halt, in fact, it can be a welcome practical project for you to focus on amidst the uncertainty. You will be surprised how much you can still get done from the comfort of your couch and in your sweatpants! As promised, we are here with a few resources for you to scroll through. Have fun reading!
