Did you have to postpone your wedding day?
Do you feel guilty for feeling down?
You may have spent endless hours cramming in searches for your vendors, your perfect venue, to painstakingly choosing your guestlist. This all comes with an additional set of emotions such as nervousness, stress, rolled with excitement! It is therefore unsurprising if you feel like you want to scream with frustration. I feel your pain!
Setting the date
Some may have planned the date to tie in perfectly with a memory or forthcoming event such an engagement proposal, birthday, or new birth. There could be many reasons for choosing it however to have your date suddenly removed with such a great amount depending on it, must be terribly upsetting and as much as we are grateful for our lives, it does not stop us from feeling bitterly disappointed with the turn of events!
I really feel for everyone this year including my daughter who was very much looking forward to celebrating her 30th birthday but ended up spending it very differently to how she wanted to. Her heart was totally set on her special winter sun-holiday and this was a similar tone to most who had a special event this year. If I could have given her those wishes I would have. I have just the same feelings for all my clients who had to alter their wedding in some way.
Once you have developed such a close bond with your clients it becomes very sad to see their plans stopped in their tracks and the coronavirus has made a good job of that. However, I have every faith that my daughter and my clients will go on to celebrate and have an even more meaningful day when this is all over!
