On planning a wedding in 2020: postpone or compromise?

This year has been a tough one for events in general, and planning a wedding has come with its own special dose of co-ordination, confusion and chaos.

As the pandemic rages on around the world, couples have had to make some important decisions. Big ceremonies have had to be postponed, replanned and then cancelled, while the meticulous facilitation of everything from the guest list to the location have gone to waste. As many have lamented, this situation is every prospective bride and groom’s worst nightmare.

What really matters is your health and the fact that you are marrying the one you love

But it’s human nature to adapt and there is always light at the end of the tunnel. In the UAE, depending on the emirate, weddings are possible as long as they are Zoom ceremonies or simple, intimate functions that follow all government protocols and social-distancing measures.

Are small weddings a thing now? Here are some perks of planning a small scale wedding!

With the wedding industry having taken a massive hit due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the big fat Indian weddings are out of the way making room for a small intimate affair to mark the occasion. For someone who fantasizes about a grand celebration with everything lavish, dazzling under the lights, a big stage with dance performances and extravagant decor, a small scale wedding can be a bummer.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, small weddings with a limited number of guests have taken a rising toll among the wedding planners and the Indian society. People are now planning to keep it a small and private gathering rather than hosting a lavish party with an unlimited number of guests. If this trend remains to sustain itself, we could see an upcoming change in the wedding industry soon that will break all the traditional wedding norms and this may not be a

Defiant Maine pastor’s family planning weddings across state line in NH amid virus outbreaks | Coronavirus

SOMERSWORTH, New. Hampshire — The family of the defiant Baptist pastor linked to Maine’s largest COVID-19 outbreak after officiating a wedding near Millinocket in August will gather next month for another wedding and reception, just a few miles from virus hotspots in York County.

It is unclear whether Todd Bell, head of Sanford’s Calvary Baptist Church and a religious school, will conduct the ceremony between his son and a New Hampshire woman at an indoor service on Oct. 17 at South Church, a Unitarian Universalist church in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. But a “family minister” will officiate the ceremony, said Jennifer Leyden, a spokesperson for the church.

About 50 are expected to attend the 20-minute wedding in a sanctuary designed to hold 525 people, Leyden said. It will be “an in-and-out service” that won’t include a choir. Attendees are expected to wear masks, provide names and phone numbers for contact tracing

Couples planning socially distant weddings for another year

During the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many couples turned to Zoom and other virtual video platforms so they could still get married in front of loved ones. But as the pandemic continues, a lot of couples are now back to holding weddings in-person. With a little bit of distance between guests.

“I definitely think it’s going to be a thought on everybody’s mind whether: do you keep smaller numbers or do you have the large numbers you originally wanted and you just space the chairs? Do you have to have more tables and more people per table?” said Braden Sutton, a wedding planner, day-of coordinator and ordained minister with JBS Weddings and Events in Georgia.

He, like other wedding planners across the country, saw soon-to-be wed couples panic when the pandemic first erupted in the spring.

“Of course they want the big wedding they planned but they don’t know

Worldwide Famous Wedding Designer Partners Paolo Nassi & Jinane Kafrouny Offer Unique Artistic Concepts In Wedding Event Planning & Design – Press Release

Paolo Nassi and his partner Jinane Kafrouny with their expert team have been designing truly unrepeatable events for 20 years. The philosophy and approach are different from any other famous wedding designer in the world.

Here’s The Reported Reason Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom Postponed Their Wedding Planning

For those looking forward to Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s nuptials, I have some bad news for you: You’re probably going to have to wait a little bit longer. However, the reported reason why Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom postponed their wedding planning makes a lot of sense. As a source for Us Weekly reportedly claimed, the two currently have their hands full with their first child, Daisy Dove, who was born on Aug. 26. “Katy and Orlando’s wedding will not be taking place in 2020,” the source reportedly claimed. “It just wasn’t meant to be. Their beautiful daughter arrived and she is their sole focus.” (Elite Daily reached to reps for both Perry and Bloom for comment on their wedding plans but didn’t hear back in time for publication.)

Perry and Bloom originally planned to have a winter wedding in December 2019, but “they changed the timing due to

Sadly, the pandemic has forced many couples to reschedule their wedding to 2021. The dream of the perfect wedding and keeping guests safe is a conflict for many brides and grooms.

Some couples, including our daughter Shannon and her fiancé Ross, have decided to get married this year with only close family in attendance at a small intimate affair, affectionately now known as a “micro wedding.”

Since our daughter and future son-in-law’s (I like the sound of that!) November wedding has been re-scheduled to April 2021, they opted for a September micro wedding. If you find yourself planning a micro wedding in a very short time period, these strategies will help.

1. Make it special
