If current events have caused you to postpone your wedding, there are some things that I want you to know.
Your feelings are valid.
There are a lot of different views around weddings and how much they mean to each person can vary.
Maybe this is no big deal for you. You don’t mind getting married on a different day, and that’s okay. Don’t let anyone’s negative energy towards the “inconvenience” of you rescheduling create stress where it isn’t there.
If you are absolutely devastated, that’s okay. You have been working so hard to plan the day you’ve been dreaming of for months, and now you’ll have to wait longer. Try to breathe, understand that there’s nothing anyone could have done, and move forward. Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s “no big deal.”
You’re not alone.
In the past week, I have chatted with several of my brides over the phone while they gave me the news that they will be postponing their April wedding. More often than not, their voices were shaky and I could tell they were (understandably) upset.
It’s not only you, and it’s not only Katelyn Faye couples. Couples all over the country have made the decision, or been forced to postpone their wedding. Some couples are choosing to elope, opting for a bigger wedding ceremony later, and some are rescheduling for a later 2020 or early 2021 date.
You are definitely not alone.
Consider the bigger picture.
My hope for you is that you’ll be able to look back at the wedding planning process as one that brought you closer together. That you’ll be able to tell your children and grandchildren the tale about how a what started as a toilet paper shortage evolved into your wedding postponement. I don’t want you to remember it and feel memories of stress.
You and your other half have your whole lives to spend together. After getting through this, your wedding day is going to feel so much more special.
