Today I’m addressing your FAQ's about COVID and your 2021 wedding.  Tune in for a candid & heartfelt convo on when weddings will be "normal" again, rescheduling etiquette, guest list juggling, post-wedding celebrations, and so much more!

This show is obviously designed to address COVID from a wedding industry perspective, but I do want to say a heartfelt thank you to all of our frontline healthcare workers, scientists and essential workers who have selflessly continued in their trades for the good of all of us.

And equally as important, my condolences to you and your loved ones who have been affected by this tragedy in terms of battling with your health, the death of someone close to you, loss of your job, house, livelihood.  

It does not go without saying - the scope of this pandemic has hurt so many lives in so many ways, and I approach the topic of COVID and weddings with the perspective and respect it deserves.  I wholly acknowledge that in the grand scheme of things, a rescheduled wedding reception is not the worst thing that can happen - but it’s also a huge disappointment, potentially financially devastating, unspeakably frustrating, and a million other terrible adjectives that we don’t have the time to list.

Hence, today’s show, where I hope we can find some silver linings and together create a positive way to move forward.

The first question that’s been posed in a variety of ways over the past months is, “When do I think weddings will be normal again?”

We're also going to address invitation & save the date etiquette, postponement and rescheduling, getting money back from a vendor, post-wedding celebrations, and a handful of silver linings.

Today’s show is Part One of an exciting new bonus series from the Wedding Planning Podcast! 

I'm sharing a true "behind-the-scenes" look + listen at ongoing, live wedding planning strategy sessions with my engaged sister, Kate.

This special series is unlike any project I’ve ever done in 5 years of producing & hosting the Wedding Planning Podcast, and I'm so excited to share it with you!

A little background before we get started:

On Christmas Day, 2020, Kate got engaged to her partner of 10 years, John.  You’ll hear LOTS more about this, but the proposal was a total surprise to everyone ... including Kate!

You see, she’s definitely NOT the girl who’s been planning her wedding since her teenage years.  In fact, John & Kate were both 100% comfortable with a lifelong commitment that didn’t center around legally being declared “married”. 

For years Kate & john grew their relationship with one another based on all the classics - love, trust, shared ambitions and dreams.  They built a business together, traveled the world, lived in 3 different cities, contributed selflessly to their community & beyond, made priceless memories with family & friends, and just last year, adopted an adorable Goldendoodle named Gus.  

And here we are today … the very beginning of a brand new chapter for Kate & John that I can’t wait to share with you!  

ACCESS BONUS VIDEOS, CHECKLISTS & MORE!
