If you’re anything like me, you’ve dreamed of your wedding day since you were a little girl. Not once did we think a virus like COVID-19 could destroy our dreams...but it doesn’t have to. In fact, it could make your wedding day even better. As vendors and fine establishments are opening back up, we can see the future a little more clearly. I’m sure every other blog post is telling you to stop, think, call a wedding planner, calm down, breathe, and things will work out. As I’m sure you’ve figured out, there’s much more to it than that!

Let’s break this down in a more enjoyable way…

Start out by reconsidering. I’m not saying to second guess yourself, but do you really need 250 people at your wedding? Try splitting the number in half to make it more affordable, more comfortable, and easier to reorganize.

Next, I would agree to call a wedding planner. Sorry for being basic, but at this point it’s critical! And *cough, cough* I know a girl for the job, and I am here to help! I have been in touch with several important people needed to recreate your wedding daydreams and between the florists, caterers, calligraphers, venues, and more, they are anxiously ready for you. Whether you need to cram your wedding on a Tuesday night next month or you are getting married on your original date next year, we are all here for you. Your wedding planning does not need to come to a halt. It’s okay to hold on to hope optimistically to plan for the fun to come. What better use of quarantine time than to plan a joyful occasion, giving yourself something to look forward to?! When you are ready, let us start planning!

Amidst the chaos, it is equally as important to make up your mind and stay optimistic. Take this from someone who had plenty of time to plan her own wedding, and continuously changed everything about it. Now is a time to follow your heartand stick with your gut because there isn’t a lot of time to mess around with the small details after it’s been finalized. Don’t let that make you feel anxious, just stay positive! It’s a day all about you and it will be perfect regardless if the napkins are a shade too light.

These small and simple tips can be used for any large event. Renewing your vows? Reconsider the fine details and attendees, call a planner, make firm decisions, and stay positive. Planning a retirement party? Same thing.

For more advice, a person to vent or talk to, a full or partial planning consultation, or anything else, I will be here for you every step of the way!

Let the best day of your life begin ~ for the second time.
