While one of the main goals of a Nashville wedding could be to create an intimate setting. For some couples small and intimate isn’t exactly what they envision when planning their big day. For Amanda and Weston small and intimate may not have been on their agenda. But they, like many others, found themselves in a predicament as their wedding day drew closer and closer. A pandemic hit causing everything around them to temporarily close down.
Just when we all started breathing a sigh of relief after a year of living in fear and isolation. It now feels as if we are in a backslide from our recovery from this COVID-19 pandemic. It’s been more than six months now since mass vaccinations have been underway. Yet only 50 percent of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated, per the U.S. Coronavirus Vaccine Tracker. With rippling unease around Delta, couples are again expressing their concerns and considering postponements regarding their upcoming weddings. They want to know to proactively prepare for various outcomes.
Your wedding day is meant to be one of the happiest and most important days of your life. You’ve spent months planning every detail and spent thousands of dollars to achieve the perfect day you’ve always envisioned. Despite how meticulously you’ve planned everything out, there’s always the possibility that something will go wrong. Perhaps a tropical storm hits the beach you’re supposed to have your destination wedding on. Or your maid of honor slipped and broke her wrist days before the wedding. For these kinds of instances, wedding insurance is the best way to protect you from losing your entire financial investment.
Your wedding is day is one you’ll remember for the rest of your life. With that in mind, many couples choose to go big with the wedding dress, rings, food, flowers, and decor. This is likely why the average wedding we plan costs around $35K to $45K. You’re planning to spend over tens of thousands of dollars or more for your dream wedding. It makes sense to purchase insurance that can reimburse you if parts of your wedding don’t go as planned or if your event must be canceled or postponed.
A wedding I was invited to has been postponed…when do I purchase a gift? What if the couple opted for a virtual wedding or elopement instead of a bigger event? How much should you spend on a gift if we’re not attending the wedding? Here’s everything you need to know about wedding gift etiquette during […]
Attending a wedding alone isn’t anyone’s first choice, especially if you don’t know many people at the wedding. It doesn’t matter whether your date cancelled, you weren’t given a plus-one because of COVID guest count cutbacks or you just went through a bad break up. It will probably require a slight attitude shift to make […]
After being in the wonderful world of wedding planning for over 20 years, we understand that there is no question left unasked, not a nerve left untouched. We understand that brides are coming from an innocent place when they ask these questions, so please read these with a grain of salt and laugh along with […]
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. You just said “yes” to the man or woman of your dreams. You’ve got the ring and you’re getting married! Congratulations! While you may still be floating on cloud nine, we know that you’ve got a lot of work to do and we’re here to help you […]
It’s a wedding planner’s job to expect the unexpected, however, I don’t believe anyone could’ve prepared for the current state of weddings. With the social uncertainty surrounding gatherings these days, planners are being forced to pivot so that they can get their couples married in a new, “socially distant” way. Truth be told, we’ve been […]
If you have been forced to postpone your wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic then there is a good chance that you are facing some really tough decisions right now. The one we have been hearing the most about is what is the best way to reduce the guest list to accommodate a new venue, […]
