I just wanted to take a moment to share some positivity to all of you currently planning your wedding/getting married during the pandemic.
We were in the first wave of people whose weddings were postponed due to Covid-19. Our wedding was originally supposed to take place 04/25/2020. We went ahead and postponed the big wedding to 09/05/2020. When we postponed the wedding we didn't expect for the pandemic to last as long as it has. We decided to postpone our wedding again until 09/05/2021, however we are still getting married and having a small romantic ceremony this year in Savannah, GA!
Before we first postponed the wedding we were only 1 month out and I had a large list of concerns. These concerns were eating me up and making me very anxious about our big day. Going through this whole process has really made me realize how insignificant those concerns really were. I realize now that as long as me and my FH get married, I'll be happy and consider it a success.
I really wanted to get eloped and my FH wanted a big wedding - now we get to have both . My mother wanted kids at the wedding and I didn't. I was worried that the kids would end up ruining our ceremony by crying or screaming. However, since they will not be at the small wedding it won't matter to me if they do it at the big wedding next year - we will already be married. I was worried about drama with my FMIL. FH isn't close with her, so there always seems to be drama with her. She won't be coming to the small wedding so if it does happen at the big wedding - we will already be married so it doesn't matter. I was sad about not going to Greece for our honeymoon after a year of waiting - now I'll appreciate it even more when we go next year. Also, by this time I would have already finished my trip, but now I still have a trip to look forward to.
There are always reasons to stress and feel anxious about the big day, however this pandemic has really opened my eyes and helped me to stop stressing the little things. We constantly worry about the little things ruining the big day - but the worst has already happened so now I'm prepared for anything!
Has anyone else been feeling the same?
