Weekly COVID-19 Wedding Resources: May 8th, 2020

2020 is turning out to be a year which will probably end up taking its claim in the history books a few decades from now. The year which will have us take in a sharp gasping and breaking down in sweat and tell stories to our future grandkids about how we stayed indoors, washed our hands, and waited…

 

Do you remember when the world first went into the quarantine, and you thought probably everything will be back to normal in a fortnight! Isn’t that quite a knee-slapper? How naive were you! Who knew you will be for more than a month into this, and things are only going to look more uncertain than ever. The beach vacation you postponed until July, that’s looking bleak too! Your October trip to Disneyland will be canceled because Disneyland, the happiest place on earth, is closed for the year!

 

Your plans, birthdays, weddings are canceled or postponed, but it is difficult to put a nail down on ‘until when’? When in the foreseeable future will it be okay to make plans? The ’L’ words, “Let’s get lunch sometime” have been promptly replaced by, “Let’s meet up after this is over”, and this time, you almost mean it!. And for that wedding of yours, which seems to be floating in the vague timeline of ‘quarantine purgatory’, well, the timeline seems up in the air, but you know it will happen, which means, you still get to plan for it! This means you not only have something amazing to look forward to when all of this is over, the ultimate declaration of “WE MADE IT!”, but you also have something to consume these endless hours. Let’s go through some wedding planning links brought about just for your consumption.

 

Out of many things that COVID-19 stole, it stole your first wedding day. It stole your naive dreams of that perfect wedding. And somehow the initial excitement and novelty of wedding planning have forever been impacted, now tinted with paranoia and stress. If your wedding plans have also been affected by the virus, this article will take you on a stroll through different perspectives of different engaged couples dealing with the same thing in their own unique ways.
