Should we just cancel our wedding?

I hear this often nowadays. No one can cancel two hearts beating as one, only God can. Marriage is a gift from God. It is the first step before starting a family (we all should know that).

Okay, so what now with intimate weddings?

This is not new to us. Intimate weddings started it all even before ceiling arrangements came. God is just teaching us to go back to the basics, to realize that the real meaning of wedding is the marriage itself. I’m confused, what will happen next? Same with the old normal, you still need to prepare for the intimate wedding. There are still the pre-wedding requirements, the wedding day itself (preps, ceremony and reception), and the wedding suppliers who will walk with you in this journey (you just have to trim it a bit). How trim is trim? We usually start wedding planning for our clients 12 months before the big day. But with intimate weddings, 12 months now turns into 3 to 4 months of preparation. Fairytale ball gowns are now turned into a wedding dress, cascading bouquets are now turned into a flower stem and a sumptuous buffet table are now turned into a plated dish. The important thing is, life must go on, we must move forward, and adapting to the “new normal wedding” is the new trend.

As with the outside world having the basic essentials, so as with the wedding nowadays under the intimate wedding basic essentials:

Preps venue
Ceremony venue
Reception venue
Wedding dress
Hair and makeup
Photo and video service
Catering / food service
Wedding Coordinator
Emcee
Bridal bouquet
Simple venue styling or table styling
Sounds & lights

As compared with the old normal wedding which are extravagant, everything now is back to basic and simplicity is the new extravagant. The important thing is, life must go on, we must move forward, and adapting to the “new normal wedding” is the new trend, and who knows when it will end, or probably is here to stay.

Let this be a reminder for all of us to take a pause, and realize the true meaning of marriage.
