Here you are, planning a wedding in the middle of COVID19, and you could use all the tips to make it work. After all, this is not quite what you pictured for your season of engagement, right? Well guess what? I really believe that despite COVID19 affecting your wedding, it can still be a DREAMY & JOYFUL day of celebrating your marriage. And here’s why:
“Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.” – John 2:10
If you are engaged and planning a wedding for 2020 or 2021, I believe this is true for you and your wedding!! I think weddings moving forward from Coronavirus can be just as amazing, if not even better than weddings that were not affected by the pandemic!
This verse is from Jesus’ first miracle in the Gospel of John. He’s at a wedding and he changes the water to wine (Did you know that was his first miracle? Pretty cool right!). Typically people would serve the good wine first, so fresh lips would taste the best of what they had at the celebration. And then after people were feeling fuzzy and happy from that first drink, they’d break out the less fancy stuff! But when the master of the feast tasted the wine Jesus had made from water, he remarked that it was even better than the first batch of wine!
I truly believe that this water to wine illustration can be applied to weddings moving forward from Covid19 and it’s impact on our society, economy, and culture. While there is no precedent for planning a wedding after a global pandemic that banned gatherings of any kind, there also was not a precedent for water turning into wine!!! Jesus took a lack and turned it into an abundance! The same can be true for your wedding day!!
If you’re engaged right now and you’re trying to figure out how in the world you plan a wedding in a post-coronavirus new world, I have ideas for you! But before I lay out my ideas for you, I did want to share that verse with you, because I truly think it applies to this circumstance! What we had before in the wedding industry was truly incredible. But what is coming, I really believe, will be even better! Your celebration of marriage will be no less amazing due to Coronavirus and how it has changed–and will continue to change–our world. So if you take anything away from this blog post, please take away the hope that while you’re on the front edge of a new normal in wedding planning, what’s to come of this season will be new, even better wine!
But as I said I don’t just have that hope to share with you. I also have ideas to share with you on how to plan a wedding after COVID 19!! So, let’s jump in!
Like I said, there is no precedent for how to plan a modern wedding celebration after a global pandemic, because this has never happened before!! So the general equation of how to plan a wedding may not necessarily be the same after COVID19.
Here are my tips on how to plan a wedding after COVID 19:
I hope these wedding planning tips helped you as you navigate COVID19! We’re all in this together!
