Planning a wedding can be daunting, scary and nerve-wracking at the best of times. I mean it is the day that your families come together, a day that you become husband and wife and probably the biggest party you will hold in your lifetime. Now, with the current pandemic happening it becomes 10 times worse. Our future is unpredictable at this point and, even if we planned everything out perfectly, some things are completely out of your control.
After a lot of consideration, we have decided that we are getting married on the 12th of December 2020, but we are not certain of the restrictions that we will have at the time. Having said this, we want to plan our wedding day without the fear of “what if.” We want to give everyone something to look forward to and we want people to realise that even though we don’t know the end date to this, there will be a time that COVID-19 becomes a chapter in the history books.
Some guests will hopefully be coming from overseas and we are very understanding of the uncertainty of international travel during these times. We are taking it day by day and we are holding thumbs that you will be able to join us.
James and I are extremely lucky to have such an incredible support structure that has helped us, mentored us and played big roles in our lives and our story together. This occasion is as much about you as it is about us. We want our families and friends to enjoy this occasion. We want it to be a weekend filled with love and laughter, something we can cherish forever and memories we can look back on in 60 years’ time.
With everything that has happened this year, it has made us realise the importance of family, how much we love each other and that no matter what life throws at us, that we must make the most of every situation and that we can get through everything as long as we have each other.
Thank you for your constant support during these times…we cannot wait to celebrate with you all!
