Planning a wedding used to take up at least a year, with some even going more than that. But during this time, everything else has been rushed into a shorter timeline to prepare and coordinate everything before the actual wedding day. It has become our team’s new normal in the last few months, where we were tasked to mount weddings within two to three months, or just two weeks!
With a shorter timeline, we are subjected to adapt to some of these adjustments to keep up with the sudden changes in protocols set during this pandemic.
Keep it intimate
Stay within the allowed number of people you can invite so you won’t have to change your guestlist every now and then whenever a new guideline is provided by the authorities.
Stick to the essentials
Always remember the reason for the celebration by only focusing on the essential people in your lives and only the essential details you need on your wedding day.
Choose venues that have already been allowed to operate
Permits for ballrooms and event spaces keep on changing so try to minimize risks by choosing restaurants and private properties instead. They are your best options for now.
Do not insist on what’s not allowed
Plan within the new normal limitations and make the best out of it. After all, what’s important is that you get to marry the love of your life, right? After all, you can still have a big celebration later when it’s safe for everyone to go out and be all out.
Accept the reality
There are so many other ways to still keep the day special and memorable. Manage your expectations and accept the reality that they may be items on your wedding checklist that are not attainable for now.
We may not be able to do the things you planned and visualized on how it would look like but you can still have the perfect wedding, as long as you have the right person beside to exchange I do’s.
