After all of the covid ups and downs, a postponement, and a wild ride we are actually getting married Sunday!! Our governor had a press conference today and didn’t restrict any gatherings or add any new restrictions that would prevent our wedding so it’s officially a “go”! My maid of honor flies in tomorrow and our wedding weekend will officially be here!


My advice to other covid brides: let go of what you thoughf your wedding would be pre-covid and embrace what it will be now! I have sweat over small things and lost sleep over changing plans but I also eventually gained sight over what was truly important on my day: marrying my best friend. I’m so ready to start our next chapter!
Covid brides: how much longer for you?! How’s the planning coming?

    Yaaay!!! Congratulations to you. Here in So Cal we are still on our stay at home order. I’ve decided to host a smaller ceremony in my backyard.

    Congratulations!!! ❤️ I am two weeks out I can’t freaking believe it! I have had a meltdown literally every day for the last week about this wedding - but I’m coming to realize no matter what me and FH will be there, and the important people will be there to witness it, and what matters is we will be returning home as husband and wife. I hope your big day is everything you’ve dreamed !!

    Yesterday, my best friend got married. I was her MOH. I think both of us were nervous, but we were so happy it was a “go” for her as well. We barely slept the night before! Enjoy your day — the girl time before, the anticipation walking down the aisle, smooching your HUSBAND for the first time, and everything else! Congratulations!

    Totally relate! I’ve melted down about 1000x in the last 2 weeks! I feel the last 2 weeks have been more stressful than the last 4 months combined! You’ve got this! I hope your day is wonderful!

    Thank you so much! Congrats to your friend! It is a HUGE relief to be able to move forward. I don’t think I had another postponement in me to be honest.

    Awww Sarah! I’m so excited for you! I’ve been stressing and yet I have let go of so much. My wedding is August 23rd (so about 23 days away) & I haven’t felt as excited bc we basically asked for only our parents to be present. I honestly wanted to share my day with all of those who love us and realize it’s not possible at this time. I absolutely cannot wait to marry my best friend, my #1.
    I wish you only the best!!! ❤️❤️

    I am getting married in 15 days, and I have been a whole mess of anxiety and stress. You gave great advice, and I hope I can take it to heart when my wedding weekend rolls around. I am so ready for it to be over. Have an amazing weekend and Congratulations! 💕

    Congratulations! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness.

    This quote right here says it all: "I also eventually gained sight over what was truly important on my day: marrying my best friend." - We often forget what's really important and focus a lot on "keeping up with the Joneses" or outdoing them. This is OUR day as brides and the best part of that day is marrying our best friend, lover and soul mate - having others there to witness is often just a bonus.


    Thanks for sharing your words and again, Congratulations - Happy Wedding Weekend.
