With the recent weddings of Princess Beatrice of England last July 17 and one of my nieces last July 11,both held this year 2020, I could not help but notice striking similarities between these 2 weddings.
Both of them had original wedding dates but had to be postponed to later dates as well as replanning all the wedding details and implement health safety protocols in light of COVID-19.
Paring down the guest lists(including wedding party) to no more than 50,social distancing, using face masks and shields as need be,etc.
Yet overall, both weddings came out in its simplified form as elegant,memorable and unique for each wedding couple.
Even before formalizing their wedding vows, both couples had already started adjusting as to how they should carry out their respective celebrations of love so as to make it happen at all in this era of COVID-19.
That,my friends,is how married life is already. Love,compromise and adjustment in this everyday reality, we call life.
My heartfelt congratulations to not only my niece and Princess Beatrice but to everyone else who are taking the plunge this 2020!
Not even COVID-19 can stop the wedding celebrations.
My utmost thanks to a small family business based in Dundee Scotland —MadeAt94(www.madeat94.com) to making my wedding and engagement gifts for my niece and her new husband. This company can be seen also on Facebook and on Instagram.
Suffice to say that the newlyweds LOVED the gifts!
