It’s a sad time in the wedding world these days – so many couples have had to rethink their plans and cancel their wedding venues, photographers, caterers, make up artists, hair stylists, bartenders, and dozens of other vendors if they can’t move to the new dates with their couples. As we are busy changing dates, our couples are having to come to terms with the new reality that their weddings aren’t going to be as they planned them. I wrote a post about how we are coping with Covid from the vendor end of things and included lots of tips for couples who are suddenly having to ask all of their vendors to come with them to their new date. You can find it here – feel free to share it with your friends and family.
There is good news in all of this though! Moving your wedding to later in 2020 or early 2021 means you get to have…a holiday wedding and there are so many different styles and designs out there for Autumn, Christmas, and Winter weddings it is easy to be inspired!
Let’s have a look at some past weddings and see if we can help create new vision boards for our Covid Couples…
Autumn is the perfect time of year to get married! Did you know most of my weddings take place in September and October? The weather is beautiful, the colours are spectacular, and the décor is what we are all living for! Here are some of my favourite ideas for an Autumn or Thanksgiving wedding:
How about living your Halloween wedding dreams? There are dozens of styles from classic to Spooktacular to choose from to fit every taste and aesthetic!
Christmas weddings always make me feel like I’m in one of those Hallmark holiday romance movies and I live for every moment of them! Anything goes when it comes to Christmas designs and décor – we aren’t limited to just the red and green colour schemes anymore!
I am seeing lots of couples being offered off season dates at their wedding venues – which makes sense because if a couple booked 2 years in advance, you know other couples have all done the same thing, which means there are few peak season dates for 2021 available now. I know it’s a dramatic change to go from planning your summer wedding to suddenly trying to come up with a winter wedding that matches your style so here is all kinds of winter wedding inspiration for you!
I hope you are feeling some hope and inspiration as you work on changing gears with your wedding! I do have some 2020 dates open and will do everything I can to fit you in – I can do 5 weddings a day depending on where they are so we can always find you a time slot on your chosen date.
