Can we just take a collective deep breath?  This sucks.  And, I know that doesn’t even cover it.  I never would have thought my job in 2020 would mostly consist of working with brides to plan their weddings around a pandemic.  It’s sad and stressful.  I know some of you are not ok, some of you are hopeful, and some of you don’t know what to think.

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working with several of my brides to change dates, and work on new plans and arrangements.  This is an uncertain time for couples and vendors alike.  But, I’ve come across quite a few resources that I’ve tried to share with my couples along the way.

I’ve decided it would be more helpful to compile the resources in one location, and maybe I can help more couples this way.  I honestly can’t imagine what I would have done if I was a bride going through this when planning our wedding.  I barely handled regular wedding planning.

Lastly, please know I’m here to talk about it with you.  I’m sad and grieving with you.  I hope you can find these resources helpful.

Without further ado, here are some wedding planning resources for COVID-19.

2020 Bride Refresh Retreat–  A fellow photographer and other wedding vendors have put together a completely free virtual “retreat” for 2020 brides impacted by coronavirus! -Nothing to sell, no promo. Just community and helpful advice.

How To Virtually Plan (and Live Stream!) Your Wedding–  Cheers for the digital age!  Some couples are still able to have small ceremonies.  A great option is to live stream your wedding for those who cannot attend.  This article details how to plan and share the special day with those who can’t be there in person.

I hope you can find these resources helpful.  I am not planning a wedding, but as a business owner, the thing that helps me get through this is knowing that I’m not alone.  You are not the only couple going through this.  And, you will come out of it on the other side with an even stronger love story because of it.  Your children will be amazed at the adversity you faced just to become husband and wife.  No matter what you to decide- to postpone, to elope, to cancel for now- you know what’s best for you.
