Lots of couples were planning their wedding when the coronavirus pandemic struck. Of all the wedding crashers we’ve ever seen in the wedding industry, COVID-19 proved to be the ultimate. Couples either had to postpone or cancel. One minute we had wedding bells ringing, and in the next, we had absolute silence brought about by the lockdown and the self-isolation rule. But we believe that we will get through this. If you’ve been affected by it, you are not alone. We are here for you. Try not to give up hope. Most of all, don’t stop planning your wedding.
