Weddings Today staff encourages readers to make their wedding day their own, even in the midst of a global pandemic.
With every breaking news notification, press conference update and Facebook post we scroll past, the novel coronavirus continues to alter our day-to-day lives. And with strict guidelines aimed at limiting crowd sizes to slow the spread of COVID-19, weddings across the region—and the country—are being significantly altered, or halted altogether.
At Weddings Today, we want to be there to remind our readers in this uncertain and often scary or stressful time that finding your mate—a best friend, a lover, a rock, a person who doesn’t try to complete you but instead inspires you to complete yourself—is one of the greatest treasures in this life. So, congratulations, you’ve made quite a discovery!
When planning your Big Day, remember foremost that the love you share is what matters most, and the only “perfect” wedding is one where the magic of celebrating with your tribe and the journey you’re about to embark on overshadows any plan derailed or style detail snagged.
That said, you want your special day to reflect who you are as a couple. Are you outdoors people? Do you have an appreciation for historic places? Did you bond over music or art or sports? In our Spring/Summer 2020 issue, we offer a whole lot of inspiration—current trends, eco-chic planning tips, a how-to for writing personal vows, real-life local nuptials and more. Incorporate what speaks to you, and forget the rest. It’s your day—wed your way.
We hope you stick around with us and not only find planning inspiration in our posts, but can lean on our stories of local love and togetherness.
