I have spoken to lots of couples recently who, having been forced to alter their wedding plans, have told me they feel guilty about expressing their true feelings about it, knowing there are people all over the world with much bigger problems; exhausted key workers risking their own lives for the safety of others, those dealing with bereavements, families torn apart indefinitely, job losses, financial uncertainty and the rest… all perceived to be far worse repercussions of this virus.
YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO FEEL SORRY FOR YOURSELF
Postponing your wedding is probably one of the most disappointing decisions you could ever be forced to make. The stress of that, combined with the amount of effort involved in rescheduling everything and securing all of the necessary arrangements with your venue and suppliers, is likely to leave you feeling more than just a little bit flat.
You want any conversations about your wedding to be a source of joy – not sympathy – but even in the midst of such dark and uncertain times, you do have permission to feel sorry for yourself. It’s totally natural to feel deeply disappointed that you won’t have the chance to experience your special day on the date you had planned and in the way you originally wanted.
Now is the perfect time to talk to those closest to you and involve your Bridesmaids, Bridal Party, Parents and any other close friends or family members who will be actively involved in your wedding day in some positive, forward thinking conversations.
Why not organise a group Zoom call to share some thoughts and bounce ideas around together?
Throw a glass or two of vino and some tasty nibbles into the mix and call it a little wedding planning party!
