5 Lessons COVID-19 is Teaching Us About Wedding Planning

Updated: Mar 30, 2020

By now, I'm sure you or someone you know has been affected by COVID-19. Whether you've contracted the illness or not, the economic and societal implications of this sickness have been treacherous.

There are so many groups suffering as a result of COVID-19, but I'm going to focus on one specific type of person... those getting married in 2020.

That's right, my brides & grooms, I'm talking to you.

These last few weeks have most likely had you pulling your hair out. The constant back and forth between making the ultimate decision of whether to postpone your wedding to a safer date or not.

Fortunately, there are some key takeaways from this whole ordeal.

1. Things Rarely Go As Planned

Acceptance... ugh, what a cliche life lesson. Though, being able to accept that this is our current reality is the only way that we can move forward. Life has a funny way of never working out how you think it will. Despite all of the horrors of the situation, maybe this is just a lesson we need to learn.

2. Wedding Insurance... Period

I bet those who had to cancel their wedding are kicking themselves for not purchasing wedding insurance but we can't change the past. All we can do is learn from our mistakes and hopefully be more cautious next time.

Though, if you're just embarking on your wedding planning journey, it's a great time to look into different options for insurance.
