My 2020 brides.. how are you feeling??? Have you decided to postpone? Did you make it official in the backyard? Avoiding the subject altogether? For us, we’re still really hopeful things will be OK by September…but with the uncertainty of the future right now, we’re definitely not ruling anything out.
I just keep thinking…if things still aren’t ok by then, we’ve got much bigger problems than not being able to have a wedding. Of course it makes me so sad to think about the what if’s, but you know what’s helped me?…
Reading about all of the couples who’ve decided to make the best of this. The Zoom call weddings, the backyard elopements…you are the ones reminding us what it really means to be in love and for that I just want to say thank you. Thank you for showing us what commitment looks like. Thank you for making the best of this weird time in our lives and reminding everyone what a marriage is really all about. You guys are the role models we all need right now.
Our future celebrations will eventually happen. And when they do, we’ll appreciate them even more with our new perspective. We may never understand why some things happen the way they do, but I continue to believe there’s a much bigger plan beyond what our human minds can understand right now.
God is working all things together for our good.
Weddings are such a beautiful thing and I still daydream about ours ALL the time. But lately, I’ve just been focusing on spending time with my future husband: learning about each other, laughing at each other’s quirks, enjoying each other’s company in silence (like right now haha), deliriously giggling at 1:00 AM because we’re not tired, and just enjoying this time in our lives where we can focus on everything we’re thankful for.
Who else is in our position? Would love to hear from all my 2020 brides – how are you doing? Are you one of the couples I mentioned above? What’s your experience with saying or planning your “I do” amid the coronavirus pandemic? Let us know tonight in the comments of my IG post ❤️And for anyone thinking about their engagement…remember, we got in engaged right here in our apartment and I couldn’t have asked for anything more special 🙂
