The Upsides to Having Your Wedding Postponed Due to COVID-19

Planning a wedding can be stressful enough during normal times. For brides who were planning to get married during the first half of 2020, those plans have had to be put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the entire world. As a bride, you may be feeling sad, stressed and disappointed having to postpone the happiest day of your life. However, there are some upsides to having your wedding postponed until the pandemic has passed. Below are some of those benefits that will have you back to looking on the bright side of things.

1. More Time to Improve Your Look

All brides want to look their best for their wedding day. One great upside to having your wedding postponed is that you will have more time to lose weight and get fit. You may also want to get a little work done so that your wedding pictures will be perfect. Whether you’re visiting a Beverly Hills based cosmetic surgeon or one located in a less affluent community, a consultation will help you decide if having work done is the right choice. A nose job, breast augmentation or liposuction may be just what you needed to look and feel your best on your big day.

2. Number One Venue Option Might Become Available

There are a few things a bride cares about more than anything else for her wedding day. On top of the perfect dress, the venue is of high importance. Unfortunately, many of the best or most interesting venues get snatched up years in advance. This could leave some brides not getting the wedding location of their dreams. Having to postpone your wedding because of COVID-19 means you have more time to get that perfect venue booked.

3. Vendors Might Be Available

Just as with the wedding venue, you may not have been able to book the vendors or band you wanted to have on your special day. Now that your wedding is postponed, you can start booking those vendors in advance now. Some of the bands or caterers that were booked during your original wedding day might be available for your future wedding date. If you plan to stick with any original vendors, be sure you speak with them as soon as possible to ensure they are still available for your future, re-planned wedding day.

4. Time for Premarital Counseling

Getting married can be tough on a relationship. It isn’t always going to be a walk in the park. Due to the stress of planning, canceling and having to re-plan your wedding day, you can take the extra time to get premarital counseling. There are many benefits of ensuring your relationship is solid before tying the knot. Find an online counselor that will give you some online sessions to help you get prepared for married life.

5. Self-Care

For this upside, time is going to be your best friend. After the major disappointment of postponing your wedding after all of the hard work you put in, and the extreme stress and worry the pandemic has caused everyone, the extra time you have will be best suited for some self-care. If you have any goals you have been wanting to hit, now will be the time to get started. During your extra time, you can also work on things such as your mental health, sleep routines, and skincare. You can also work on getting more organized and prepared for married life.

Right now is a stressful time for everyone, especially brides who had their special days postponed. The upside to waiting will be having more time to be prepared for that day so it will be extra special. The memories will be worth the wait.
