Around March 2020, the pandemic hit in full force. I remember it vividly. I was just leaving the studio after a boudoir photo session, and was all hyped up. Then as I sat in my car and turned the radio on, I learned that covid had reached the US – at first, it seemed like something that wasn’t a big deal. Then I realized it was going to change the entire industry. And that has remained true over a year later.
Choose to have a small destination wedding somewhere beautiful. This doesn’t necessarily mean traveling super far away (although you totally can!). There are some great places right here in Iowa and the Midwest, that will give you what you are looking for.
Here’s how to do it:
- Switch to an Elopement or Micro Wedding instead, and invite your nearest and dearest.
- If you’re postponing, be sure to check with all your vendors first. You don’t want to pick a date they are not available.
- You can do everything you were originally planning to, the guest size will just be smaller.
- Take time on your elopement day to go do something fun: a hike, coffee date in the local coffeeshop, sip some beers at the brewery, or just explore the location.
