Grieving the Loss of Your Wedding (COVID-19)
From forest fires to a pandemic causing global economic collapse, 2020 hasn't been anyone's year.
My heart breaks for brides & grooms who had planned this year to be the year they marked their love.
A wedding is so much more than just a pretty day, it's months of stress, planning, coordinating, gathering inspiration, designing, booking, interviewing, organizing, & communicating.
For some of us, we've been dreaming about this day since our childhood.
It's easy for someone on the outside to tell you to stop complaining and look at the bigger picture.
But they're not in your shoes right now. They don't know what it's like to lose what was supposed to be the most important day in your life.
So then the guilt of your sorrow sets in.
"Why should I feel sad when people are dying?"
Let's be clear...
What's happening in the world sucks.
But, it's okay to grieve.
It's okay to cry.
It's okay to be upset even though some may have it worse than you.
Giving yourself space to not be okay is the first step to getting through this.
And the great news is that your wedding will still be here when all this is over.
Whether you choose to have an elopement in a few months or postpone your wedding until next year, there are always options.
You're going to have a great story to tell your kids one day.
And, most importantly, you will get through this.
