An Easy Guide To Getting Married During A Pandemic

Times have been crazy. The world technically came to a halt. Of course, like most unfortunate situations no one saw it coming. Somehow, we have to get by and make the best of whatever we have. Knowing that at the end of this all, we will come out better and stronger.

So, you had plans to get married before the unusual turn of events and still wondering how you can pull that off?

1. Converse With Your Partner

The most important people involved in a wedding are the bride and the groom. Whatever decision you are trying to reach must go down well with your partner.

Would they rather wait till the pandemic is over?

Are they not so comfortable with a wedding without family?

Are they excited to cut cost and have a wedding without guests?

As long as you are on the same page with your partner, then you are 95% good. You wouldn’t want to start a marital journey by being at loggerheads with your partner over your wedding plans. Do not try to cajole them, ensure that they are buying whatever you are suggesting with no bias. Also, be objective if they have a contrary opinion.

2. Talk To Family And Friends

Inasmuch as your partner is the most important person to consult on affairs relating to your wedding. Your family and loyal friends also play an essential role. If in doubt, both parties (you and your partner) can consult them and even run your ideas by them.

They may share your thoughts or add or deduct which can be equally helpful.

3. Try To Eliminate Fear

Fear has the capability of holding you down in more ways than you can imagine. It is a common emotion due to the current pandemic. The uncertainty of the future and all that but focus solely on your immediate plans. The rest will take care of itself while staying safe and maintaining proper social distancing of course.

4. Opt For An Online Wedding

Online weddings are on the rise. There are several video apps you can use for this. Opting for an online wedding is perfectly normal in these times. All you have to do is make sure you and your partner are on the same page, then inform family and a few friends, and the marriage officiant.

5. Trust Your Decision

Whatever you and your partner decide on, be confident that it’s for the best. Be it postponing and waiting till the pandemic is over or having an online wedding. It’s your marriage ceremony in the end and the choice really is yours. Whatever you choose to do is all for the best.

6. Remain Positive

Staying positive may be a bit tricky as well as making long term plans but you owe it to yourself and your partner to remain positive. Expecting nothing but the best at the end of it all.

Remember, to stay safe, wash your hands and practise social distancing.
