“Did a Mexican beer really halt my wedding?”
This is probably the question on every Bride’s mind at 3:00 A.M. Ok maybe not 3:00 A.M. because that’s just me writing at this time. Not that I was planning on drinking Corona during my Bride and Groom’s big night, but this widespread pandemic has affected many Brides and Grooms and I feel for them.
now they have to worry if they should hug any of their friends and hope they have toilet paper by the end of the week. Yikes!
While this may be stressful for any Bride, here are 5 things they should consider before canceling or even going through with their wedding!
5 things every Bride should know before canceling or going through with their wedding!
1. Memories are more important than money
I just got off the phone with a client and he has such a positive mindset towards his fiancé. A great start to any marriage! She’s over it already and wants to just get married in court. He has been her rock and has kept reminding her, “Babe, we’ve been through it all already.” The best thing I heard him say was, “Let’s just postpone this wedding because if we cancel on all our vendors and get some of our money, what are we going to tell our kids? That we didn’t want to have a wedding because of Corona?” I laughed because he said that he didn’t want to lose to that same Mexican Beer.
2. Breathe before making a big decision
Before a bride walks down the aisle with Dad, one of the many things she’ll hear him say is, “Breathe, honey.” It’s what we do in stressful situations when we want to clear our minds, yet many of us don’t work that “muscle” enough. Many of us go throughout our life without even breathing. Like really breathing! How are we even still alive? Lol. Before making a big decision that you might regret, take this time to stop right now and breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds, pause for 2, then breathe out through your mouth for 6 seconds. Do it 3x for about 10 minutes, then go make that big decision!
3. Rescheduling is better than canceling
4. Contact your vendors
5. Social distancing is real
Can you believe that there are still weddings happening? In the land of aloha, while it is recommended to not have a gathering of 10 people or more, weddings and events are still going down as we speak. I get it, “Eddie would go,” but here’s the thing, “Eddie might come back with Corona.” I’m going to take it further. “I’m not worried about Eddie. I’m worried about Eddie’s mom and dad.” When going through with that big decision, go back to #2 and breathe for 10 minutes before making that big decision.
