My, my, my. It's been the craziest year ever for so many. I remember when COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic in the spring. More specifically, I remember how my clients and other engaged couples felt when they realized their wedding plans went up in the air.
As soon as the first shelter-in-place orders went into effect, I immediately hunkered down and started writing a book about how to plan a wedding in a pandemic. The wedding industry was hit hard, but the least I could do was deliver value in a way that most couples could use to their advantage in planning their own wedding. Along the way, I compiled various options to incorporate virtual components into the wedding day. From virtual save-the-dates to interactive photo booths for in-person and virtual guests to spend the celebration together in creative ways on the day-of.
To get through wedding planning in 2021, it will take more than a vaccine to return to a sense of normal. There are very young, old, and immunocompromised wedding guests who want to participate on the wedding day but can't due to the effects of this pandemic. So, this is one of the topics I'll be covering in my mini-workshop coming up on Friday, January 15, 2021. This workshop is designed to help couples navigate the new challenges that come with the bureaucratic red tape that comes with wedding planning in a pandemic.
