Bickering!? Definitely not something that should be on your wedding planning checklist. But with the uncertainty that’s come with the COVID-19 outbreak it’s possible that stress levels between you could be reaching an all time high. So, here’s a few ideas to try and keep you both focused on the things that are important during these tricky times and to help stop the squabbles.
Set aside some quality time for wedding talk, this is likely to be better than constant snippets throughout the day. Book the time out, pour a glass of wine, and snuggle up together on the sofa. Discuss any progress or developments and the options that are available to you. Create a time that allows you both to be comfortable and express your concerns and expectations.
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Whilst every minor detail of your day is, of course, important, right now is the time to be concentrating on the bigger things; there are probably big decisions that need to be made. Help keep your sanity by looking after the big stuff. If some of the tiny details have to be amended or left by the wayside, try not to worry, you will still have a fabulous day.
It’s likely that many couples may have to compromise on dates, venues, suppliers – all sorts of things during this difficult time. But, remember, you are in this together. Help each other to compromise and come to terms with necessary changes to plans, understand when your other half seems disproportionately upset about something that you are less bothered about. This is all good practice ahead of your married life together.
Most importantly, remember it’s your wedding. Your love is strong this year, as it will be next year and every year after that. The most important thing is that you are safe, well and that you have each other.
Stay smiling and continue planning!
